"Having read other reviews I have to say we were rather disappointed. On a minor point the 'welcome pack' of the cheapest Cava from the local Co-op and a handful of Roses chocs that had been hanging about for ages or left in the sun (plus a pint of milk and a few small bottles of water) fell way short of our recent experiences elsewhere. Never found the expected doggy treats. The place feels a bit neglected and needs some basic maintenance. The French doors to the garden and front entrance were hard to open fully and even more difficult to properly lock again. Having wrestled the utility room door open we never shut it again as the catch was so dodgy. Regarding cleanliness; we found a few cobwebs here and there and the table and worksurfaces in the kitchen were sticky. We had to go to the Co-op and buy dishcloths to help clean as none were provided. In the fridge were a selection of commodities left by previous occupiers, many were way out of date and unusable - the cleaners should remove such items. We thought it would be a good idea to fill the chilled water dispenser in the fridge, only to have the contents dribble out of the tap onto the kitchen floor. With regard to the gardens etc., don't be fooled by the photo's on the website - even making due allowance for the remarkably hot weather the collection of scruffy pots with dead/dying plants in was unacceptable. Added to the odd collection of tat and rusty paraphernalia alongside a broken chair and weeks of accumulated dead leaves that you walk into the house all the time gives the impression the 'gardener' has gone missing. The next door rental property is a complete contrast. Our efforts on watering and sweeping up may have revived things a bit.I hear you say 'did you contact the owner?' - no we didn't because none of these matters individually amounted to a federal case, but the overall effect was negative. However, contrary to our other experiences renting cottages, nobody contacted us proactively to see if all was well. Not much to ask when paying upwards of £800 for week's stay.On a more positive note, the location was great affording easy access to the beaches, forest and decent local shops (Co-op, Boots, butcher/deli, newsagent, pet shop and chippy) plus three dog friendly pubs within walking distance ranging from good honest pub grub (Carpenters Arms) to a 2 AA rosette place that charges sensible prices (Three Tuns, not to be missed)."

"Not luxury. Really disappointed with the lodge expected much better for the money paid, basic maintenance needs completing plus misleading description. See below for fair pros and cons:Pros:* Nice location* Use of hotel facilities * Reasonably clean* Good size garden* Cons:* Limited hot water (had to use kettle to top up baths for children)* Disgusting kettle full of limescale* Toulet flush broken* Poor design of kitchen door and fridge* Telephone doesn’t work* Hidden welcome pack / guide* Washing machine outside meaning having to leave children alone to wash clothes, go out in freezing temperature to do washing and go in and out to check if the cycle had finished! It should be clearly stated it isn’t in the house!* Missing Basic kitchen utensils, grater, potato masher etc * Poor service* came back one day to find 3 men in the property servicing the boiler, they had put our dog in the kitchen. These things should be done in between guests and if not only with consent* Dogs not allowed in living room!* Requested cot, travel cot and Highchair as are stated as available. None in property when arrived, called to request. One travel cot and Highchair arrived. Explained we requested a cot too- another travel cot arrived which was left in the hall. Called back and asked them to put in a bedroom as I couldn’t move the beds and do it. When they came was told there wasn’t room in the bedrooms for it! I explained I wasn’t having my 2 year old sleeping in a hallway! And suggested they either moved a bed out or rearranged the furniture to make it fit!Although it is a lovely area your money is better spent on a different property."

"We arrived at Bakers Barn after a 5 hour drive. On opening the door the kitchen looked lovely. We had a quick look around and the bedrooms and bathroom were nice and clean. Coming back into the kitchen to make a cup of tea and that is where the initial wow factor disappeared. All cutlery looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly with remnants of food and coffee stains in mugs, plates and pans. The oven doors were thick with grease and hadn't been cleaned. The worksurface was sticky and again not cleaned. The tiled backsplash was filthy. The cupboard doors had tea/coffee stains running down them again not cleaned. The kickboards were disgusting and filthy. On opening the cupboards we found half eaten packs of crisps , cereals etc. Same with the fridge it had previous guests half eaten food and bottles in. The kitchen bin has no lid and was overflowing again with previous guests rubbish. When you pay close to £1000 for a cottage you shouldn't have to be faced with this scenario. The master bedroom doors are hard to open and close and the front patio doors have splinters of wood coming off which caught my wife's dress and ripped it on entering the property. The place needs a very good clean and then would warrant the price to stay there. Some of the points mentioned above have been pointed out by previous guests but looks like no one has acted on them. I have never left a bad review of a holiday cottage but unfortunately I had no choice with Bakers Barn."

"Cramped accommodation. Steep stairs an understatement. There was a sign warning to remind you to come down backwards. Definitely not suitable for anyone with any infirmaries or needing to get up during the night. Can only stand upright in a narrow band along the middle of the bedroom meaning only one person can dress/undress at a time. No hanging space in bedroom, only a very small amount downstairs. No natural light into bedroom. Small window looks into an enclosed carport. Hence room dim even during day and needs light to be used. If you need to get up during night the bedroom light would need to be switched on, partner woken, possibly to turn light on as only one light switch behind one of the beds in order to have a safe visibility to negotiate the stairs (more like ladder). Had to kneel on floor to access the clothes drawers.The fridge was missing one of the shelves and all the door shelving missing. Both easy chairs 'tired'.Description states property has electric central heating. It actually has an electric wall heater in the very small kitchen/lounge/dining area and an electric heated towel rail in bathroom. No heating upstairs.Location pleasant. We got used to the property over the week, but we are moderately fit. Enjoyed our stay as the property's good location allowed easy access to some pleasant enjoyable locations. Property description needs to be improved to make the property's limitations clear."

"We had a great holiday. We enjoyed walks from the cottage within the grounds, found a shady stream with a rope swing. Short drive to carisbrooke castle, colwell bay (sandy beach, great for going in the sea) and mottistone. We booked a Tesco delivery for our arrival and then did little shops at Lidl. There's a family sized fridge freezer so you can do a weeks shop. We went to a lifeboat launch at Bembridge, and cycled the red squirrel trail from shanklin. We ate at Pavarotti's in shanklin, highly recommend, and went to the chine in the evening. We also went to godshill model village.We had glorious weather which always helps, but there was lots to do, could have happily filled 2 weeks! The children loved being at calbourne mill, we went every morning before they open at 10 to feed the birds and have a pedalo. Youngest child loved the lego table. The lodge is very comfortable, bigger than I expected from the photos. It was lovely and clean and the beds comfortable. The big windows upstairs stopped it getting stuffy or too hot. We didn't get pestered by the birds at all, the children loved seeing them walk about. We ate all our meals on the veranda and didn't use the dining room at all but it was very spacious. Thank you for a lovely holiday."
