“Fantastic, family friendly, well equipped, warm welcome... will go back again”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found the cottage on Tripadvisor/Owners Direct and thought the reviews were possibly too good to be true. They are not. We could not recommend the Brew House enough.

We stayed at the Brew House at the end of September with our two children who are aged 2 and 4. When making the booking Ali very helpfully gave us advice for ferries and pre-arrival information. Upon arrival Ali was there to meet us and show us around the Brew House. The Brew House truly is a home away from home and it is clear that Ali, David and James make it so. A marvellous welcome hamper and key provisions were a great help and gave us our first taste of the local produce.

Our girls loved exploring the Brew House and were overwhelmed with the choice of toys to play with. And there truly is something for all ages (including adults) at this house, books, games, toys, DVDs, outdoor ride-ons.

This was our first trip to the Isle of Wight, we had no idea how far away the activities were and had not made any plans. With Ali's directions we found a childrens play area next to the beach in Ryde which became a firm favourite. The visitors book provided a wealth of ideas for activities, days outs, pubs and other hidden gems.

It seemed that nowhere was really too far away from the Brew House, we were so fortunate with the weather that we were able to be out most days but always able to get back and know that our little ones would be entertained.

We look forward to going back to the Brew House again.

“A true home from home experience.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were made to feel especially welcome by all the family. Every superlative mentioned by others does not do adequate justice to the hospitality shown by Ali, David and James, nor the variety, quality and quantity of not just the welcome pack, but the on-going supply of cakes, fruits and drinks bestowed on us during our stay.

Everything is thought of and on a cooler evening David Ali came round to ask if we would like to light the wood burner and kindly gave us a quick lesson in dealing with its vagaries. Had we wanted to just sit, there was an abundance of books to read and DVDs to watch, something we have never come across before in a rental property. The abundance of materials for attractions throughout the whole island and the laminated copy of the OS map were all much appreciated and used. We were grateful to use the bikes that David and James provided and prepared for us so that we could explore the fantastic network of beautiful, easy cycle tracks that radiate from nearby the property.

The cottage provided a central, cosy, wonderful and comfortable base for walking the coast and downs, sightseeing and cycling. Apart from the obvious attractions of Osborne and Carisbrooke, other places well worth visiting are Dimbola; Compton Bay and dinosaur tracks; Ventnor Botanic Gardens; Mottistone; walks at Tennyson Downs; the West Yar estuary; Newtown marshes; Wooton Creek, Quarr and Fishbourne.
