“Great base for walkers and dogs”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We (4 ladies) used this as a base when we did the coastal walk. Lovely spot with the sea on one side and the woods/coastal path on the other. The seating area at the back was a lovely place to sit and recover from our long walks, we preferred to sit at the back away from the rabbits at the front as we had 2 dogs with us. The dogs were welcomed with open arms, in fact we found the whole of the island to be dog friendly. We dined in 5 times, the kitchen stocked all the utensils we needed. (We ate out at the Bugle Inn, Yarmouth twice) Nothing was too much trouble for Natasha.

“Peaceful cottage”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

The cottage was almost as it appeared in the photographs although it looks like the back terrace with the Summer house is completely enclosed, however it is not - it is across a path that is accessible by other people. Therefore I was a little disappointed that this was not made clear because it had appealed to me that the dog could have an enclosed area to wander around off lead. It also looks flatter in the photo whereas it is actually on a slope. That aside, it is a lovely little two-up two-down cottage with a fab view of the sea that is ideal as a base for exploring the island. Plenty of dog-friendly places to eat within walking distance and plenty of lovely walks.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Lovely cosy cottage. Well equipped and clean. Great views across the Solent . Location is perfect , great woodland and beach walks and easy access to Yarmouth. Made to feel very welcome, when we arrived there was a bottle of wine and local apple juice which was a nice touch. The only down side is that to the rear of the house/garden there is a communal walkway, but I would still book again as all of the other positive outweigh the one negative.

“comfortable, well equipt, cosy cottage.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

4 adults, one 2yr old and 2 dogs. we had a lovely week. good for touring the island or relaxing watching the boats and activities on the water or watching the bunnies, from the front/back of the cottage.(we couldn't agree which was front or back) walking in the woods , interesting little paths.
or taking the coastal path or walks along the dog friendly beach. . Close to good eating places and cafe's for tea and cakes.
people very helpful and friendly
Cottage was nice to return to , comfortable, clean, well equipped. to find fault is nit picking , but the garden is not enclosed and is steeper than it looks on the photo , we could not use it with a 2 yr old and dog. the beach is not suitable to bathe, which did not bother us but we were not aware of this. my only gripe is that I did not see any Red squirrels! not one!... signs everywhere saying they are there.I looked and looked!!
