“Excellent Stay - Great Location”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We all had a lovely stay at Barton Lodge. The house had everything we needed and a beautiful garden backing onto fields, with a bbq.The bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage space and the dining table and living room great spaces for relaxing and eating together.
The house is also in a great location!
We would strongly recommend a visit!

“Great place”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

First time visit to Isle of Wight and we could not have wished for a better place to stay with two children. Great well maintained cottage and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

“Excellent, spacious character property”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Excellent, spacious character property. Friendly owners. Really good food at Folly Inn and lovely walk past Folly Inn along (to Newport) or around the water.

“Ideal base for exploring the Island”
Reviewed January 26, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Barton Lodge proved to be an ideal base for a a short visit to the Island. As regular visitors for many years (my wife is from the IoW) this time was for a family funeral and our choice of accommodation made a sad occasion much easier.

Within minutes of arriving on the ferry into East Cowes we were welcomed by the owners and shown round the property. A short while later it just felt like 'home from home' - it's that sort of property - comfortable and well equipped.

Worthy of special note were the beds which were (for our taste) a cut above anything else we've come across when staying in rented accommodation. Although located close by one of the busier roads on the island we didn't get disturbed by any noise, no doubt helped by the traditional thick stone walls.

Unless you're intent on a sand-and-spade holiday Barton Lodge will provide an ideal base to explore the Island and its increasingly varied selection of eating places supplying locally sourced food.

We intend to return and enjoy Barton Lodge and Island again.

“Great place to sample Isle of Wight”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

Barton Cottage is a very handsome former lodge house. It was very clean and well appointed. The wood burning stoves were useful, as the cottage had not been occupied for some time when we arrived on admittedly a very December cold day and it took a couple of days for the central heating to warm the whole house. As mentioned by other reviewers the beds were very comfortable. The house is quite close to the main road but noise was not a problem inside, as the walls are thick and there is secondary double-glazing. It was too cold to spend much in the extensive garden. Osbourne House is about 2-3 mins drive away and well worth a visit.
Amber was very help during the booking process and when we arrived. Would recommend the cottage.
