"For context, we're a couple with a dog. We usually prefer secluded cottages, but as it was a last minute booking we didn't have many options so went with a village location.The main reason for picking S37523 was the large private enclosed garden. It was very dog secure with large walls around more of the perimeter and some large fence panels. This allowed for our dog to be off lead and we could all relax. There are surrounding properties, but the high walls of the garden and the setup of the property made it feel private.To update on comments from previous visitors. The drive is looked over by the front of a neighbouring property - a recent dividing fence has been installed that helps. The property has been setup around the garden at the back so it's not too much of a problem once you're inside - although the front of the neighbouring property can see right into one of the bedrooms (easily fixed by closing the blind).As others have said, the layout means one of the bedrooms is accessed via the only bathroom. This wasn't a problem for us, but I can see why it could be awkward for friends and families with older children. That aside, the rest of the cottage is nicely setup - the living space is homely, and the upstairs space would be great for kids. All of the downstairs rooms can be opened out onto the large garden, which would be great on a warm day.Pros- Large dog secure garden- 3 pubs in walking distance, and a shop- Good location for tourist sites- Homely live space with several rooms opening out to garden- Upstairs bedroom space is great for kidsCons- The front facing neighbouring property- The property is generally clean and well equipped, but some of the crockery needs a deep clean- The towels provided were old and crunchy, suggest taking your own- One of the bedrooms being accessed through the only bathroom"

"We stayed for a weekend at S88414 as we were attending a wedding in Yarmouth. The directions and location for our needs were brilliant - when we got off the Yarmouth ferry it was a 6-9 minute drive to the house. On arrival there was a lovely welcome pack and the owner was in contact beforehand to give information on the cottage and the area. Sue also found out about the bus service for us to get to the wedding. We were 2 couples and 2 grown up children - plenty of hot water, the bedding and towels were clean and comfortable athe bedrooms were on the whole comfortable although the twin beds were low and our grown up children found them uncomfortable. We made use of the garden furniture and the garden was sunny in the afternoon. It was a bit of a squash round the dining table for 6 adults but we ate out mostly. Approx 15 mins walk to Totland and Colwell Bay and a shop across the road for necessities. On a main road which I did not expect. Could benefit from some black out blinds as the light came flooding into the bedrooms first thing in the morning, so we woke early. Wifi etc and kitchen appliances all very efficient. Great stay - recommend!"

"Disappointing. Garden very unloved and full of fruit trees which had dropped their fruit everywhere and no one had collected so was infested with wasps so unable to have doors open. Kitchen equipment and crockery tired and dirty. Outside bin not emptied so overflowing and nowhere for us to put our rubbish. Couldnt get hold of owner when trying to get key ended up using caretaker number who was very kind but said his number should no longer be listed! Welcome pack was some A4 sheets scribbled on and tied with string. Coat hangers in wardrobe too big so door wouldn't shut! Oven very old and dirty. Oven glove needs throwing out!! Layout very impractical but was aware of this quirk to an extent. Booked this place because of garden photos as took our dog too. But if yr hiring out a property you cannot have that amount of fruit trees and no maintenance of garden. If I had young children I would have been very worried about them being stung. Nice village but house and garden very unloved. Not worth the money."

"Sadly very disappointed, we have stayed here before with no complaints. This time however the property was sadly in need of a lot of TLC. The garden was scruffy the grass had not been cut and the patio full of weeds. The dog escaped through inadequatefencing. All the tea cups in the kitchen were either chipped, cracked, dirty or all of these.The oven was disgustingly dirty. The sink had not been cleaned properly, neither had the dishwasher, we had to buy rinse aid in order for the crockery and cutlery to regain their sparkle. There was a bowl of mouldy food left on the window sill. The grate had not been cleaned and was full of ash. The bathroom was not very clean and when the toilet was flushed water bubbled up through the shower plug.Shabby chic is fine but inadequate cleaning in the kitchen and bathroom is unacceptable for the price that we paid,lWe do feel that a part refund would be in order."

"The Cottage felt very homely and warm. Everything we needed was supplied to make it a very comfortable stay. Making lovely warm fires in the evening was a real treat and the cottage was well placed for the local small supermarket and pubs. The children loved the summer house where they could play pool and darts which was a welcome diversion for them and us! It was lovely to be able to take our Westie away with us, however owners of small dogs beware, as the garden whilst totally enclosed was not fully escape proof for mischievous little dogs! The walks up to Tennyson Down from the cottage were super and the views unsurpassed. Would recommend the west coast as the coastal walks and fossil hunting were great fun.All in a all a great Easter week spent on the Island, with Freshwater proving to be a great base and the cottage being a home from home after a day's walking and exploring"
