Shame about the cleanliness
Cottage was a great size for our family holiday but completely let down by the cleanliness and lack of preparation for guests. Never before have we arrived at a cottage to find dirty dishes in the dishwasher, rubbish left in the kitchen and an oven that belched smoke due to spilt food on the oven floor. Lightbulbs also needed replacing, lounge carpet needed vacuuming as there were still crisps left on it and some towels were stained. Have to say that our complaints were addressed immediately but a bottle of wine and chocolates as an apology don’t quite do it. Real shame as the location and parking were good and the space was great for the family.
Thank you for your review. We take all cleaning issues very seriously and when you contacted us the day after your arrival we acted straightaway and resolved the issues. The usual cleaner was away and the stand in cleaner let us down on this occasion. Im glad that you found the accommodation a good size for your family and you enjoyed the location and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Isle of Wight in the future.
Lovely property very well maintained and excellent facilities throughout the house.
Location is peaceful ideal to break away from the crowds after a long day at the festival.
We were fortunate to have a fab taxi driver with an 8 seater who looked after us really well.
I would highly recommend this property.
A pleasant week over the Easter period.
We were the first to stay here in 2019 after a flood in previous years. The property was in very good condition and very well equipped. We liked the fact all the bedrooms had en suites and also had another separate toilet in the hallway.
The location was idyllic with views over rolling hills and very quite. There are shops and pubs nearby and Newport was only a few miles away.
We would recommend this property for location and comfort.
What the North Wight has to offer:
The North of the Isle of Wight is home to the County Town of Newport, with the Medina River running through it towards the Solent dividing East Cowes and West Cowes. To the West are the villages of Shalfleet and Newtown Creek with a stunning Nature Reserve; to the East are Wootton Bridge and Quarr Abbey.
Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle are both with English Heritage, are steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful grounds. Quarr Abbey, further down the coast from Osborne, is a spectacular working Monastery with tea rooms. The Roman Villa in Brading often has educational classes in the café. Newtown is one of the oldest towns in the UK, situated near a nature reserve, a lovely place to walk and enjoy the wildlife.
Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port. Yachts people from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, the best known being Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August. Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.
The Nature Reserve at Newtown is the beautiful home to many species of wild fowl. Inland Parkhurst Forest offers acres to walk dogs and children, with squirrel trails and woodland for picnics and adventure games.
The Isle of Wight Festival
This ever popular music Festival is generally held in early June (see the events page on our website: https://island-holiday-homes.net/Events.aspx) just outside Newport and has been going on and off since the 60's.
Places to eat
This part of the Island holds some of the best restaurants and pubs. Cowes being destination for the sailing community offers a wide range of cuisine of which Lugleys with its sea frontage is popular. There is also a Lugleys in Newport and Olivio's in Newport and Ryde offering delicious menus.
