“Elegant and Cosy Family Friendly Cottage”
Reviewed 17 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Just come back from a lovely, relaxing weekend at Fort Victoria Cottages. The cottage is beautifully furnished and is well equipped. Our nearly 3 year old loved the surroundings - nice big green grass area to the front of the property which in the summer you could easily just sit outside and watch them play. Beds were super comfy and it was so quiet, lovely to wake up to a sea view. We hope to go again and would have no hesitaton in recommending this to couples or families.

“Perfect Cottage”
Reviewed 13 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed in the cottage for a week in October with our dog.The cottage is in a perfect peaceful location,adjacent toFort Victoria country park.To the front of the cottage are wonderful views across the Solent,and a small patioed garden(which we used even in October) leading to a large communal grass garden.To the back is a small garden,with direct access to the woods of Fort Victoria Country Park and the IOW coastal path.We went for a walking week,and it was Tuesday before we needed to drive anywhere.Would recomend the Yar estuary walk,the Red Lion half way round is a must for a thirsty walker!
The cottage is perfect well presented,with everything you need,a real home from home,it was also immaculately clean too. Despite being vey mild for October we lit the lovely cosy open fire every night,which gave the cottage an even more homely feel.Would definately recomend the cottage to anyone wanting a lovely get a way from it feel week.

“Lovely, peaceful, great location”
Reviewed 21 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

A week on the IoW with our dogs. The cottage is nicely decorated and modern, all appliances etc were working and there was everything you could need to cook simple meals etc. Towels, sheets fittings all good quality.
Dogs were fine - they have to be on a lead on the grassed area as there is no enclosed grassed area for the cottage - just a small patio with low fence (and there are lots of bunnies!) so can't just run around but the beach is literally accross the road so it's not a problem.
Views of the sea are fantastic, there are lots of great walks without getting in the car and it's only 5 minutes from Yarmouth harbour. We had a great time. Have already recommended to other doggy folks!
Owners nice, good information and fast responses to questions.

“High quality accommodation in a superb location”
Reviewed 5 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

The attention to detail in this property is outstanding, everything has been thought about, and it is spotless. Straight away it felt like home. The view is just lovely, and the area is very quiet - most of the time the only sound we could hear was the tolling of the bell on the buoy moored off Sconce Point. The neighbours made us very welcome, including our dogs, (in fact we found just the islanders is general to be exceptionally friendly). It is a short walk into town, where you can pick up all the basics.

“A spotless, well appointed, piece of paradise on the isle of wight”
Reviewed 25 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed in Fort Victoria Cottages in August 2011. The cottage was exactly as the description said, a little piece of paradise on the Isle of Wight. The cottage was very well appointed especially the kitchen so very easy to cook all our meals. We have a toddler so it was ideal for us. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the sitting room had the added bonus of various games,books and dvd's - great for an unexpected wet day! The cottage was immaculately clean as well. Outside, the communal green in front of the cottage was perfect for kicking a ball and running off some toddler energy. The location of the cottage was great, an easy and picturesque walk into Yarmouth, and very easy to get round the island by car. the views from the cottage are just to die for, so peaceful to sit in the evening watching the boats enjoying a glass of wine.
