Excellent and well presented property on the upper floor of a cottage. There is a road immediately outside but this was not an issue and not busy. The property is well equipped and has plenty of space for two people. The location is excellent for access to Seaview - only a fifteen minute walk away or a couple of minutes in the car. The overall location is quiet in general and there is a huge Tesco within a ten minute drive which has everything one needs for a self catering holiday and more. All the main attractions on Isle of Wight are generally easy to get to and if going out of season, the island is lovely and quiet. The one disadvantage of this property is that there is no parking. The advertised space immediately outside the property caters for only one vehicle and its a lottery owing to competing neighbouring vehicles. Parking is therefore an issue which resulted in our parking a few hundred yards away on the main road through Nettlestone with the vehicle being well out of site. Not an issue for our needs but may not be to everyones liking. For us this was the perfect cosy escape in a quiet area and the property was spotless and comfortable.

We're really greatful to you for taking the time to leave a review for 1 Harrow Cottages and thanks for all the local info - we're sure this will be of huge benefit for future guests. We're sorry that you were disappointed with the parking situation - there is no private allocated parking space and we market this property as having 'parking on road'. If private parking is an important facility that would make your stay more comfortable, we do have many other properties on our portfolio which offer this - just ask a member of the Classic Cottages' team who'd be happy to point you in the right direction or pop it into the search criteria on our website.

I feel it's worth mentioning that the appartment is very noisy due to its proximity to a busy road. Unless the heating controls are rectified, that is certainly worth mentioning. The stairs are very acute and would not suit anyone old or with a walking disability. The difficulty in parking is very unsatisfactory and could cause issues for those older and less fit. For the less technically minded, the operation of the cooker could be a problem.

Thanks so much for your review. We're sorry to read that you experienced some road noise - we've investigated and during your stay we understand there were road works in the area which perhaps led to more people using this as a cut through, but thank you for letting us know. We are so glad that you contacted us at the time about the heating and understand that the owner reached out to help. We do try to keep our website as accurate as possible and mention the steep stairs and on road parking but apologise if this didn't suit your needs. If you ever need any assistance selecting a property our sales team are more than happy to help and we so hope to welcome you back to a Classic Cottage in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Perfect apartment used as a base for visiting the Isle of Wight Festival. Well equipped kitchen, exactly as described, very comfortable bed and hot shower. Good location near to Seaview with coffee shops and restaurants. Would come back again. Thankyou.

This is a lovely, spacious, immaculately clean property which we loved staying at. Everything smelt clean and fresh and we were very happy here. Parking can be a bit of an issue but the positives outweigh this in my opinion. I would definitely recommend.

I would like to give a special thanks to, Sheila at the Classic Cottages team for going above and beyond by delivering flowers to the apartment, using her own time and money. It is much appreciated and I wish all the best xx
