“Perfect”
Reviewed November 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wonderful place to stay and the most helpful owner. They helped us book our ferry crossing and met us with a lovely warm welcome and a pint of milk already in the fridge!
I would highly recommend Bella cottage, location was great and the cottage itself is immaculate.
We had a great holiday

“House OK but check details with owners.”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This house is fine - IF you are able to use all the facilities paid for. BUT - be sure to get written confirmation that there is no planned work or other unwanted activity that may have an adverse effect on a holiday scheduled for the week(s) booked. We needed a parking space with constant access and a garden, but the owners chose not to tell us until after we arrived that the road was to be resurfaced - although local people had been notified weeks before - resulting in our holiday being ruined . We were unable to have a lie-in, gain access during the day or even open the windows because of road closures, horrendous noise, dust and dirt. On the Monday we were told that as it was the Council nothing could be done. Only after we returned home (early) were we told we could have had another property. We are still wondering why, if that was the case, the offer was not made before we left home, when we arrived or on the Monday evening after we had texted to complain. We had no reply to our last email, but prior to that we were offered £100 'compensation' . No amount of money could make up for a ruined holiday, but even that token offer never materialised.

We did not need the central heating, but could not have used it anyway because it is controlled by the owners, so if you come in cold and wet - tough!

“Fantastic holiday”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We've just returned from a fantastic holiday to remember. Bella Cottage definitely made the stay extra special. With all mod cons and home comforts the owner has made this a real home from home.
My daughter especially enjoyed exploring the garden and having her own room.
There was plenty of room for the 4 adults and 1 toddler and 2 cars.
Its a perfect location for exploring the island with attractions within 15-20 minutes drive for us. It also gave us an opportunity to explore Newport which we hadn't done before. It was great having so many amenities so close for those forgetful moments.
I cannot recommend this cottage enough and want to say a massive thank you to Lynn for all her help before the trip, during and after.
Definitely a holiday to remember :)

“Ditto - Just perfect”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As the other reviews say Bella Cottage is just perfect. Great location in the centre of the Island, very quiet at night despite being on the edge of town. The Cottage has every mod con you could want including WIFI = happy teenagers!.

A lovely sunny garden if you want to stay in, and only 50 yards from a cycle path out into the countryside. The owners couldn't do enough to help and have kept the Cottage at a very high standard. Just a great stay.
