The houseboat is a lovely and extremely well maintained place, with all amenities in place that we could think of. The immediate surrounding of the Newclose Houseboat is a harbour, and not all the houseboats there are as well maintained as the Newclose Houseboat, but it is easy to ignore them. It takes not much more than five minutes to walk out of the harbour area, and then you will find yourself in a beautiful scenery with beaches, nice villages, restaurants (we loved the Chinese restaurant in Bembridge) and some shops. During our stay, there were two minor (technical) issues where we needed support from the local Classic Cottages staff, and in both cases friendly, immediate, and helpful support was provided. Excellent. Believe us: we actually thought about problematic things one should know before renting the Newclose Houseboat (and as Germans we usually identify something), but in this case we couldn't find anything....

We were a bit trepidatious about booking Houseboat Newclose because there were no reviews available. But our stay was fantastic. The houseboat is spacious and generally equipped and furnished to a high standard. The view is beautiful, whether or not the tide is out. It does get noisy at night in the front bedroom when the tide comes in. The location is good. Nowhere on the island need take more than 55 minutes drive (to the Old Battery at the Needles), but most of the places we visited took no more than 30 minutes to get to: Osborne House, Carisbrooke Castle, Brading Roman Villa, Ryde, Arreton Barns, the Garlic Farm. Great beaches at Compton Bay and Seaview. We can strongly recommend a visit to the Bembridge RNLI station, open daily between 2 and 4. Once a fortnight on a Tuesday evening you can visit and watch when they do a practice launch of the All Weather Lifeboat: that was truly thrilling....

The houseboat is absolutely beautiful. Everything you could possibly want is included. Had a lovely family holiday in our favourite place.
