Holiday Cottages in the Isle of Wight

While it might only cover 30 square kilometres, the Isle of Wight manages to pack a lot into a small space. Choose one of our Isle of Wight Cottages as your holiday headquarters and you’ll be within easy distance of some superb beaches, including the one that used to be for the sole privilege of Queen Victoria. You’ll also find plenty of historical sites worth investigating, such as the spectacular ruins of a Roman villa or the imposing castles used by the likes of Charles I and King Henry VIII.

The Isle of Wight used to have a reputation for being a bit stuffy. However, things have changed and now the island attracts a much more vibrant class of visitor. Book one of our Isle of Wight Cottages in the early summer and you could find yourself rocking out at the Isle of Wight Festival, which still attracts big-name acts including the likes of Rod Stewart, Arcade Fire and Run DMC. If that sounds a bit too loud for you, hit the island in September and catch the melodic strains of the Classic Isle Festival, in which renowned classical musicians take the stage at the sublime setting of Northwood House.

What can I do on my holiday in the Isle of Wight?

If you’ve booked one of our holiday cottages in the Isle of Wight for the whole family, you’re going to need some entertainment. Luckily, the island isn’t short of an attraction or two. Head on over to the Dinosaur Isle at Sandown and your kids can get face-to-face with some fabulous fossils and some awesome animatronic dinosaurs. If your kids prefer looking at living beasts, your little monkeys can meet the little monkeys at Monkey Haven in Newport. Alternatively, Amazon World in Newchurch gives a taste of the tropics, without having to worry about the language barrier and inoculations.

We also have some beautiful holiday cottages in the Isle of Wight, which are perfect for couples looking to spend some quality time together. If it’s just the two of you, a trip to Queen Victoria’s old house is in order; Osborne House is stunning but its extensive, glorious gardens really put the icing on the cake. Picnicking is also a popular pastime amongst the romantically-inclined and there are plenty of idyllic spots to discover, such as the Needles at Alum Bay or the stunning Mottistone Woods.

    "Upon our arrival at S14293 we were first hit by the damp smell of the property, it was quite dark - not helped by the décor but certainly not as pleasant as we had hoped for or it looked online. Our shower was broken (we discovered the next morning) and despite a phone call and voicemail left with the number provided no one ever called us back during our entire stay - luckily my husband managed to get it working but no good in an emergency (the number is a generic number of the owners business so upon calling out of office hours you can only leave a message which I presume wont be picked up till Monday-Friday 9 till 5) absolutely useless when arriving Saturday...Our bed was dreadfully uncomfortable due to a very old mattress which you could feel every spring in. The girls were happy enough in their beds but cant vouch for how their mattresses felt as I didn't test. The sofa and arm chair were threadbare, the bar stools missing feet and arm ends making them sharp (sharp enough to make holes in the lino) and also not ideal for little heads that may bump into the arm rests. Also the toilet roll holder looked like it might fall off the wall so we took the loo roll off and didn't put it back till the end of the week just in case! The handle on the outside of the sliding door was also missing, it generally felt unloved.During the week we tested the smoke alarm only to discover it didn't even have a battery in it and nothing was PAT tested in the property so all the appliances posed a risk, although I do hasted to add nothing looked particularly unsafe but for peace of mind this seems like a beneficial thing to get done to cover yourself (as landlord) if the place went up in flames...You could not see the creek from the property as there were other properties in the way - we felt that this was misleading on the website as it looks as though you are right on the creek. Not only can you not see it but you can't even access it from the site as it is all private property there. Not a massive thing but should be made clear as it might matter to some people.There is a Tesco express up the road as well as a few other amenities plus being close to the ferry port makes it a convenient location hence why I gave it points for that.One other thing to note was that my daughter left her little handbag and purse (with money in) there by accident, despite going back later and trying to call both welcome cottages (who were unable to assist me at all) and the 'emergency' contact number and leaving a message with a receptionist, no one has gotten back to me of course. All I wanted was a contact number or email of the cleaning firm as they are most likely to have it but welcome cottages don't have that information - seems crazy to me, and since the emergency number is as useful as a chocolate teapot we'll never see that again - we are just lucky we didn't forget something more important...Overall I wouldn't go back there as it wasn't very pleasant and it was a case of 'you get what you pay for' as we were on a budget - however with a little money spent on it, it could be a nice place. Sad that you still end up paying hundreds of pounds that makes you depressed upon arrival just because it's peak season."

    "We were told we could not arrive before 4pm. We arrived at 4.15pm on the 9th December when it was dark and cold. In the time that it took me to park my car the owner, Mrs Morris, handed the keys to my wife and was leaving as I was about to enter the front door. The 2 advertised parking places do not exist. There is a disabled off street parking bay in front of the house and off street parking further up the road. This is a trade mis-description.The house has 6 rooms on 3 floors and is only heated by 2 storage heaters and a wood burner. Whilst the online photographs show the wood burner blazing away it was not lit or even laid when we arrived. In fact there were cold ashes in it!There is 1 storage heater on the ground floor and 1 on the first floor landing. The heat coming from them would have had trouble melting an ice cube placed on them such was the insufficiency of their output when we arrived. The house was very cold.I rang Mrs Morris about the lack of heat and asked for some additional electrical heating such as a fan heater. Mrs Morris would not do anything to rectify the situation.She just shrugged her shoulders, so to speak, and kept repeating that the house had a wood burner as though that were the answer to the problem of the cold.Storage heaters are a very inferior form of heating. You can not just turn them on as Mrs Morris appears to think you can. They only take on a charge during the night. They should have been on for at least a couple of night before we arrived. Mrs Morris had known we were coming several weeks before!A wood burner might produce a warm glow when lit and fully going but they need to be fed fresh fuel on a regular basis. If you are going out for the day or night, as you might on holiday, they are unsatisfactory as a primary source of heat.The temperature in the lounge when we arrived was 16C which is totally unacceptable and not what we had paid for.As the hearing had nor been on the bed was cold the first night.On the second day we lit the fire and kept it serviced all day. We could do this as we have family in the village and we were with them during the day. Even with the 2 storage heaters working on the second day and the wood burner fully serviced the lounge only reached 19C. The wood supplied ran out on the second day and we had to buy another sack from the local store.Satisfactory temperatures were achieved on day 3 but the new supply of wood also ran out!Mrs Morris has refused to compensate us for the totally inadequate heating or recompense us for the fuel we purchased.Welcome Cottages upon being advised of the problems agreed to pay us £100 compensation out of their own monies. Good for them! CONCLUSION, if you do rent this cottage;-1. Take your own electrical heating appliances and turn them on immediately on arrival.2. Wear your long johns at all times when in the house for the first 2 days.3. Take a hot water bottle to bed.4. Take additional fuel to burn on the wood burner, or buy some at the local shop on arrival.MY ADVICE;-Find another cottage where the owner has the sense to heat up the house before the tenant's arrival and where they sort a problem out when politely advised."

    "I would not return to this property. It needs significant maintenance and, in our case, failed to meet basic hygiene standards.At 7.15pm on our first night, just as we were preparing our children for bed, the owner called us to explain that the previous occupants had left a mattress wet with urine. The cleaner, having discovered this earlier in the day, had turned the mattress over and re-made the bed. We had noticed a smell in the room on arrival but not thought of checking the mattresses. Of course it was now too late for us to find anywhere else to stay so we spent an hour improvising an alternative with what we had. There was a sofa bed in the sitting room, but the sheets were very damp and musty and too small for the mattress. The next morning, we made several calls to the owner who arranged for a replacement bed and mattress to be delivered that evening. On our return from the holiday, she agreed to our request for compensation and refunded the cost of our first night's stay.I think the cleaners should at least have left us a note for our arrival so that we could have found somewhere else that was more hygienic. They certainly shouldn't have re-made the bed for someone else to sleep in. The cleaners disagreed, saying that they felt the situation was dealt with "in a very professional way". The owner's response gives me no confidence that the situation would be dealt with any differently if it happens again.In addition, the house needs a lot of maintenance - the two fire extinguishers expired in 2012, the fire alarm in the main bedroom has been disconnected, the soil pipe for two toilets vents into the airing cupboard (creating an unpleasant odour), the pillows are very old and lumpy, the showers are temperamental to operate and the back door is warped and very difficult to open (see also review dated July 2013). Furthermore, apart from the urine-soaked mattress, the overall standard of cleanliness was low when we stayed (kitchen floor, toilet brushes and at least one shower cubicle obviously not cleaned properly after previous occupants left). Also, I feel that the photos are rather optimistic - the garden pictured is a communal lawn round the corner from the house and shared by about a dozen other houses; the dining area is very cramped for four people (even when two of them are young children) so I can't imagine how six people could possibly eat there.In having to deal with the owner much more than I would have liked, she seemed pleasant and prepared to help resolve the problems we faced. She does not live on IoW but, in my opinion, needs to be much more hands-on in managing this property if future tenants are to avoid the sort of problems we faced."

    "We booked this holiday in August for August so our expectations were not that high. The appartments and holiday homes on this complex appear a little tired. Especially the deckings and approach to S14293. That's a pity as in fact there is a lot going for this place. It's comfortable and spacious enough for two adults and two children. It was spotlessly clean everywhere and the equipment was adequate for us to cook all our evening meals with no bother. The beds were very comfortable and the children enjoyed their room and the cabin beds. Plenty of information , some games and a nice TV. The sette and chairs were comfortable too but far to big for the room - they are a liitle past their best as well. You can pick away at everything if you want but this is a holiday home and taking everything into consideration we all thought this was acceptable. One dangerous point is the lino flooring under the kitchen bar which needs replacing urgently as it is split by the stools legs which have lost their plastic ends. The only reason we have put that we wouldn't use S14293 again is because of there being no play area visible from the appartment."

    "Rustic cottage, beautiful surroundings, great for a unfussy family who don't mind a few rough edges, not completely suitable for disabled or elderly because there's not a low level shower and the local beach is down a track with steps to the beach that would be quite a challenge to anyone vaguely unsteady on their feet. We ended up driving out every day to the fantastic beaches around the island, avoiding the single track roads where possible! The cottage isn't huge, but as you are there to get out and about it's enough. Wifi was pretty hopeless, as expected in rural surroundings, and the kitchen could be better equipped, maybe a large family sized saucepan and a handle to the grill would do it.The major issue for us was the shower, as the 82 year old we brought with us was unable to use the shower over the bath so struggled to keep himself clean all week. If it is advertised as having a walk in shower, that's what there should be.Apart from that, a charming place to stay for a holiday."
