Holiday Rental House
A traditional bijou cottage, perfectly positioned in the heart of the Arreton Valley on the Isle of Wight. Refurbished to a high standard, the three cosy bedrooms can accommodate up to five people and it is perfect countryside retreat with two pubs and a farm-shop just steps away from the door. The cottage dates from the 18th century and many of the original features remain intact today. It has a feature fireplace in the living room and exposed beams throughout. Please note that this is a very old cottage and it is furnished as such and we would suggest not suitable for guests wishing to have five star hotel fixtures or disabled visitors. The cottage is ideal for couples and friends, short breaks and holidays. Great for walkers, guests with pets and cyclists as there are some lovely walks ...A traditional bijou cottage, perfectly positioned in the heart of the Arreton Valley on the Isle of Wight.

Terrible
Where shall I start we were met with a porch that was full of cobwebs and entering the cottage it was a dark brown wooden ceiling with dark brown sofas snd a black fireplace so dark all the lights had to be put on The kitchen was equipped fine Then to the bedrooms no wardrobes 2 hooks in the bedroom downstairs there was 4/5 hooks in the passage way which we had to hang our clothes the room with a double bed only had a small amount of space between the wall and bed and the bed stuck out which you hit your leg on when getting out to go toilet in the night so my husband hit his leg numerous of times and being on blood thinning tablets was scary he had bruises all on his legs where he hit them and the windows had not seen a window cleaner for months and again cobwebs out the back door The shower was either very hot or if you turned it down it went cold and waited at least 5 minutes for it to get hot and if anyone turned a tap on it was so cold There was a slop in the lounge kitchen with no warning strips to make you aware we finished up breaking glasses as we tripped up it and had a tray with glasses on which smashed and we replaced them Then came the BEDS well you could feel the springs my daughter who had driven all the way to Isle of Wight and was doing all the driving did not sleep on the mattress it was so uncomfortable to the point we had to go and buy a decent mattress topper which cost £170 to enable her to sleep a couple of nights we slept on the sofa as we could not afford two mattress toppers it is terrible that we needed to do something drastic and expensive to enable us to remain on our holiday I have written to the booking agents who have replied to our complaint and have sent our comments to the owners who have not had the decency to even reply The only positive was the position of the cottage the location was great shame about the cottage everything seemed cheap but not even cheerful the lounge was very depressing Then we come to the car park space which is fine but the problem is at night the gates are locked so therefore if you have an emergency you would be stuck in the car park The garden thankfully was pleasant again the table and chairs cheap and horrible but we were fortunate we had good weather so could stay out most of the day We got speaking to a lady who was on a holiday let and paid almost £300 less than us for a better place So to sum it up will never stay there again you need to inject some money into it to keep your customers happy

This is a hidden gem........delightful, cosy, clean, modernised but still quaint
We have just come back from a week here with our 2 girls aged 15 and 11. We loved this cottage. It was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. We had 2 great pubs close by. We recommend both of them. Farmer Jacks market is a must go to for your morning croissants and bread. We cooked a couple of nights and got the ingredients from here. The butchers is excellent. We bought back bread to freeze! This was a great family holiday but i can also see it as a romantic holiday for 2, or holiday with friends. as there are 2 double bedrooms and a single room.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location
My daughters and I stayed at this lovely cottage in the runup to the Easter weekend. It was our first visit to the Isle of Wight and it was great. The cottage is lovely - very clean, well equipped, comfortable and peaceful. It sits next to Arreton Barns Craft Centre and Pub, but there's no noise - and it's lovely to have a great pub within 2 minutes' walk if you don't feel like cooking. Towels and tea towels are provided - and we're talking big comfy bath sheets here. I'd recommend this cottage to anyone. It even comes with its own red squirrel!
