“Wonderful stay to make Isle of Wight trip more memorable”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The accommodation was very comfortable, in terms of location as well. To start with, Andrew (the owner) helped us from the beginning. He helped us to book ferry at a discounted rate. Also his suggestions and hospitality during our stay there made us feel at home.

The living room was comfortable with nice sofas, lots of books for kids and some toys as well.
The kitchen was well equipped. The outdoor area is also big with comfortable table and chairs and we had a nice breakfast outside in the morning.

The cottage is also close to many important attractions and walking paths.

Overall I didn't miss anything during our stay there and felt at home. I would definetely recommend this to anybody.

“excellent facilities for a relaxing break”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. It had everything we needed. The teenagers enjoyed making homemade burgers in the spacious kitchen and playing basketball when they were not studying for their exams. It was great to have the open plan layout to chat to the family while making meals. Plenty of room in the bedrooms as well.

There are wonderful walks from the house - to Freshwater Bay, across the Downs on the Tennyson Trail or from the Causeway along a disused railway line to Yarmouth.
Hope to go back soon.

“Excellent family accommodation.”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a lovely stay at Stable Cottage over Easter. We were a group with teenage children and grandparents and we all thought the accommodation was great. The cottage was spacious and spotlessly clean with everything we needed, including free Wi-Fi. The owners left some lovely homely touches such as Isle of Wight shortbread and fresh flowers and were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive.

There are plenty of excellent walks nearby. We particularly enjoyed the walk along the causeway, by the River Yar to Yarmouth. Freshwater is just a short drive away for local shops and the beach. Would absolutely recommend as a base for a family holiday and we hope to stay again.

Thank you for your kind comments. We work hard to ensure the cottage is as clean as we would hope to find it and so it is always rewarding to hear kind comments such as yours. The walk to Yarmouth certainly is lovely. We hope to see you again some time. Best wishes from us all.

“Lovely late season stay”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Had a lovely stay in the October/November half term and was very lucky to have amazing weather! Accommodation was comfortable and well thought out. Owners very pleasant and friendly.
Situated in a quieter spot but not to far for attractions on this side of the island and village amenities.
Would recommend and would stay again!

“Such a lovely place !”
Reviewed March 28, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have only stayed for a few nights and wish it had been longer, it is such a lovely place and were made very welcome. The stables is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We took our 88 year old mum with us and the few steps and en-suite bathroom was a big bonus for her.

We travelled with our dogs, there is a great walk just across the road which goes all the way down to the bay through lovely fields, they loved it.

Would we recommend this cottage to others - absolutely, thank you so much, we hope to come back one day.

Liked best: Overall experience was great
Liked least: If I had to say anything - I would have loved a small enclosed area for dogs so we didn't have to stand outside in the rain (this is not a deal breaker)

“RELAXING AND COMFORTABLE”
Reviewed March 9, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Stable Cottage a few days before Christmas in order to relax and recharge after a busy term, and it served its purpose well. We found it very functional, comfortable and pleasant, so much so that we ended up staying in every night! It is only a few minutes drive to the walk up to the Needles which offers spectacular sceneries.

Have just spent a great week at the cottage. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or done any more to make our holiday any more enjoyable than it was. Lovely, clean cottage. Good selection of books (including for children) and games and the owners were keen to ensure our 4 year old had plenty of toys. Hope to be back in the future.
