“Amazing cottage in a prime location.”
Reviewed April 15, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We booked Bella Cottage over the easter weekend 2016. We had a wonderful time in the Isle of Wight and Bella Cottage was a perfect base for our young family. it is amazingly furnished and very well maintained by the owners and I couldn't recommend it enough, we didn't want to come home! We wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

“Perfect place to explore the island from”
Reviewed April 2, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Bella cottage was clean and spacious enough for a family of 4 including teenagers. Lovely cottage feel. Wifi greatly appreciated! In a residential area in the town. Quite quiet. Supermarkets short walk away.
Lynn was very welcoming, relaxed and helpful. Easy to contact if needed. We didn't need to as everything was taken care of with the information given.
Ideal situation to explore the island from. Never more than 30 minutes from anywhere. Could easily have bused everywhere. We drove.
Visiting the Needles is a must- we avoided the 'theme park' area and stuck with National Trust area. People with smaller children might not have much choice though!
Plenty of places to eat to suit all tastes within walking distance.
Would highly recommend Bella Cottage.

“Perfect cosy cottage.”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Perfect cottage - had typical cosy feel but surprisingly spacious - enough for the 4 of us (hubby and 2 grown up kids). Had everything we needed for a very comfortable winter break to visit our Island relatives - Xmas tree was nice touch. Warm welcome from the owners. Cottage clean, well appointed and equipped. Excellent central location - flat walk into town and shops, right next to the Newport/Sandown cycle path and the main road out of town in either direction.

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!
