Perfect Cottage for 3 generations
This was the perfect cottage for us, our daughter and husband and two young grandsons age 3 and 5. The only thing you should be aware of is that the upstairs shower room and wc is not accessible to small children at night as it is accessed from the stairs, the other side of a good stair gate. It was not a problem as there is an door from the twin room to the double room which has an ensuite ( and it's own staircase) the grandsons loved the stream, safely fenced, floating leaf boats and ' fishing' with the nets provided. Warning our satnav wanted us to use the ford, which you can do but it can be difficult to access Carisbrook side if cars are parked too close.
Wonderful Character Home
We have just returned from a wonderful week in this character home. Great central location, short drive to everywhere on the Isle & close to nearly shops. The whole family aged from 13-97 enjoyed the house and its beautiful garden, the house had every you needed and the downstairs bedroom & bathroom was perfect for my grandmother. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this wonderful character home!
Could not find any faults. We do hope to return it is such a lovely cottage.

Lovely little cottage
Thank you for a great stay. Lovely cottage close to centre
Gin by the stream!!
Wonderful situation and beautiful house. Would have been so much easier had we been told about the parking a few doors away. Three of our party were handicapped and the stairs and access to one of the upstairs bathrooms was not really suitable for us old folk. We did manage and had a good laugh but it was many years ago that two of us had to come downstairs step by step on our bottoms! I think that the property description needs to be more explicit for us elderly ones. We really did enjoy it though! Mike F.
Special interest holidays:
We have compiled an information file which gives some of the activities on the Island. We are unable to cover them all. There are many activities during the school holidays & many things to do with the children. One of our favorite places for the grandchildren is Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens, only a few minutes in the car from us. When you pay you are given a 7 day pass that gives you access without further charge. It is a fabulous place for taking a picnic, but there is also a cafe. A Falconry with 2/3 shows every day & many more activities for younger children. We consider this is very good value for money.
The Donkey santuary, Blackgang Chine, Alum Bay with the multi coloured sands & the cable car down to the beach are just a few to mention.
Beaches- A tip for spending time on the many beaches & rock pools, is to pick up a Tide chart. The Isle of Wight is the only place in the world that has a double tide. These tide charts can be picked up at newsagent or online.
You are never very far from the seaside & a sandy beach. Carisbrooke is well located for touring around the island. A bus from the village, will take you into the principle town of Newport with all the major shops & access to the 'round the island' buses.
Sandown & Shanklin are well known for beaches & beach shops whereas
Freshwater is a quieter area for beaches and the low tide reveals numerous rock pools.
Don't forget to pick up a tide chart for the best times to visit the beaches. Available also on internet
The cottage is about 20 mins drive from both Red Funnel (Southampton/Cowes) and Wightlink (Portsmouth/Fishbourne) ferry terminals. The Lymington/Yarmouth Wightlink ferry terminal is about 25 minutes drive.
As Newport is the Principle town, it is home to the larger shops like M & S, BHS, Sainsburys, Boots etc., In the event of an emergency which we hope is not the case for our guests, Newport is also home to our Hospital - St Marys.
OUr information pack give details of Pubs and Restaurants that we have used, but there are MANY we have not tried!
