Stayed 2 nights, one in the homestead with shared bathroom. Second night in en suite room 75. Shower is very small. We were provided with plates and cutlery etc so we used the BBQ. Both rooms very clean. Nice swimming pool area. The only reason I didn't give it 'Excellent' is because the wifi isn't very reliable.

We stayed on a motorhome site. All I can say is that there were lovely owners and good facilities. We were given a personalised explanation of the island when we arrived - everyone was very friendly. We would definitely stay again, and recommend.

Good location. In the middle of Cowes township and not far from Cowes beach. Room was good for the price paid. I liked the pool. I think one improvement needed is a dining table in the kitchen/living room area.

Great location, walking distance to everything. Fantastic quiet little park, that mainly consists of permanent cabins. Very safe and clean facilities. Staff very helpful and friendly. My family loved it and in laws happy with their clean cabin. We where in a caravan and staff moved us to a new site to give us more room and privacy. Highly recommended....

We stayed in the old homestead, which has several guest rooms and shared bathrooms and kitchen. It's a bit like a posh hostel. The room was large with a super comfortable bed and the bathrooms were clean. The kitchen had great facilities, but you cannot use the stove or oven, only the microwave. The staff were brilliant and friendly. The...

I loved my stay here. The house I was accomodated to was absolutely beautiful, the kitchen and lounge area was very smartly furnished, giving a very homey style to the place, with a pool just outside to dip into. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Staff were the best part of my stay, they made the whole experience 10 times...
