“Fort Victoria cottage, Isle of wight - a great location and a quality experience”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The cottage had a great feeling and finished to a v high spec. Natasha and Mark are incredibly well organised and the booking and arrival went v smoothly. Th eviews from the cottage over the Solent are breathtaking and sitting in bed in the morning with a cuppa , watching the yacjts sailing past is an experience I won't forget (helped that it wa Cowes Week !) Nearby Yarmouth is a real delight and having it withinn wlaking distanc eis also agreat plus
All in all a great holiday and one we hope to repeat

“A little taste of heaven”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I stayed in the cottage with a friend and collectively our 4 girls. Being a 2 bedroom cottage it was a bit of a squeeze but Natasha and Mark couldn't have been more flexible and accomodating (arranging for a camp bed and providing bedding for the sofa bed). Having said that there was more than ample living space and the cottage was very well equippped!!! The cottage is in a FANTASTIC location (I am from the Isle of Wight so I know the Island very well). Yarmouth is a beautiful harbour town and there are loads of gorgeous beaches near by (Yarmouth beach itself is a handy 5 minute walk away from the cottage). Waking up to sea views is my idea of heaven and the communal lawn infront of the patio area was a huge bonus for the kids. It is such a lovely quiet spot but you still have the convenience of the beach cafe for some delicious breakfast and lunch. Taking the water taxi into Yarmouth was a great adventure for the kids. And us mums enjoyed a short jog through the coastal path each morning. I could go on about what a great time we had but instead all I will say is that this holiday will stand out in my kids memories as the best holiday ever (above all the 5* hotels)!!! We hope you have as great a time as we did!!!

We were lucky enough to visit on the warmest week of the year so far. The location was fantastic and the quality of the accomodation & furnishings were superb. We'll definitely book again.

“Peaceful cottage within easy walking distance to prettiest town on Isle”
Reviewed March 8, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

The cottage was very comfortable and tastefully furnished, with good sea views from the living room and bedroom. I enjoyed walking along the sea to Yarmouth with its pretty cafes and shops (15 minutes) seeing birds, rabbits and alpacas (yes, six of them) along the way. I did not have a car and did not miss it - the bus service is excellent, with busses going to Alum bay and the wonderful walks around there every 30 minutes. The eastern part of the Island is definitely the better choice for people interested in nature, scenery, walking and wildlife, and the cottage for anybody who also wants a bit of peace and quiet.

“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed August 7, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

My husband and I stayed here with our 11yr old son at the end of July. It is a beautiful, cosy and relaxing cottage with spectacular views of the Solent. Yarmouth is only a10/15 min walk away along the beach and the cottage is perfectly placed to explore the island. It is definately a place to return to...and we will. Very high standard.
