Having visited the Isle of Wight many times before we wanted a place to stay for a long weekend away with the family. It was like home from home. Nicely decorated and has everything we could need! Shops very close by as well as restaurants and a few bars. Perfect location to catch the Hovercraft from the mainland. Also great transport links all round the island within walking distance. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Will definitely be staying again.
Absolutely beautiful cottage which from the moment you walk in puts a smile on your face. Everything you need and much more is there for you and family / even a boxful of board games :)). We will be back many times in the future as we have now found our ideal "home from home" in an amazing location - close to all shops, entertainment, ferry terminal and the beach . It's very rare to find such a gem as this .
We were lucky to be some of the first visitors to this lovely cottage. The new owners have kept the charm of this cottage whilst furnishing with high quality furniture. As we were on a short break we decided to leave the car at Southsea and take the Hover over to the island, it couldn't have been easier, the cottage was just over the road from the hover port and the beautiful Ryde beach.
Using the local transport was so easy and gave us the opportunity to visit other areas of the island.
We were amazed at what the I.o.W. has to offer for all tastes and ages and we will definitely be returning to Coast Guard Cottage for a longer stay and possibly take the car so that we can take our time to explore this lovely island, the beaches, sights and gastronomic delights that it has to offer (may even take the kids next time).
