A lovely family house in a lovely location
This is our second family visit to this house. We are frequent visitors to the IOW as we have family there and this is by far our favourite house so far. There is plenty of space for everyone and lots of options for family time - in fact we enjoyed the house so much we stayed in more than planned eating, drinking and playing games it is just a great place to ‘just be’. Although we didn’t manage to finish the 2.000 piece jigsaw in the house ! Totland Bay is a very short drive away and Freshwater has great shops for fresh meat and fish. Having the living space on the first floor meant the area was light, airy and welcoming. Our first night was perfect sitting on the balcony up amongst the trees serenaded by the birds and an impromptu brass band in the church next door. Would thoroughly recommend.
perfect house for two families. The garden was amazing and lots to do even in walking distance.
We recommend this house for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. Lucy was extremely helpful.
A beautiful, striking house, great location and lovely large garden.
This house is really striking with an amazing first floor very large conservatory that makes you feel like you are in a tree house. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The house is very well equipped. It is set back far from the road so I was never worried about our little kids running off. The location was perfect, 10 minutes walk from one beach and less than ten minutes drive from at least a couple more. The garden is great with a brilliant swing that the kids loved.
Beautiful house, home from home and a very helpful owner
We had such a wonderful week in gorgeous East House! What a wonderful base for a home from Home holiday, East House has everything you could possibly need. The house has everything to hand, all that a family could need.
This was booked as a surprise trip for my husband and Lucy could not have been more helpful. We shall definitely book again when revisiting the island.
