Holiday Cottages In The Isle Of Wight To Rent

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.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In The Isle Of Wight To Rent.

Christine - verified booking

"This property is the dirtiest, most dangerous and worst maintained holiday home we have ever rented. The photos provided do not show how it is now. They appear to have been taken years ago. Also, note that the ‘cleaner’ lives next door. I’ll just list the issues to save space. The 2 rear bedrooms have windows which open fully outwards with no child locks. So your kids could fall 15ft to the patio below. The bunk bed cannot be used safely because there isn’t space for the ladder to attach to the correct side. Your kids will have to climb over the end of the bed, while you hold the electric light out of the way.The fridge was last tested in 2008 and gets warm on the front, indicating a major fault. The electric cooker is almost usable (as you can barely see the dials) and dates from approx 2003. Getting the oven on is so convoluted they have to leave instructions. We spent the first 2 hours cleaning all the cutlery, cutlery drawer, a pile of plates and bowls and all the work surfaces. As they were all sticky, grimy and unusable. The sink doesn’t have a draining board, you have to use a metal tray as the side. A plate stand is shown in the photos but wasn’t there when we had the property. All the kitchen work surfaces are wood and are very old with cracks and black mould. A lot of the silicone and grouting is dirty, old or missing. The kitchen and dining room floor have bare floorboards, with noticeable gaps, which move and flex when walking on them, some parts stick up from the floor and could cause injury. The house is infested with slugs. We had slug trails on our shoes most mornings and even accidentally stood on one. You can’t use the dining room shown as they have crammed in an extra armchair and double settee. The latter serves to block the double patio doors which have no handles or visible locks and pose a large security risk. The downstairs toilet is in (not off) the kitchen, the shower screen was not clean and there was dirt and pubes in the shower tray and tiles were hanging off the wall. The door can accidentally lock itself, and yet, can only open halfway due to the full sized Mangle they have in the kitchen as an ornament, I presume. The upstairs bathroom was equally dirty except the toilet is almost unusable since the toilet roll holder is behind your left shoulder and you're literally crammed in between the shower and bath. All the windows were filthy both inside and out, throughout the entire house. As we all the mirrors both in the bathroom and elsewhere.It’s also completely stuffed with useless furniture and ornaments, which clearly never get cleaned. I counted 78 picture frames, but stopped counting ornaments after I got to nearly 100 in the first room alone. Despite sleeping 9, the dining room table can only seat 6, yet they have shoehorned in various chairs and settees to seat up to 38 across mainly the ground floor. The double room with single bed photo is staged as now it also has 2 wardrobes, 2 bedside tables and a small set of drawers. There is barely a foot of space around the double bed. The double wardrobe has no door handles and, in any case, one door is blocked by a bedside table. In the rest of the house, some the electrical sockets and switches date from the 60s and 70s. The snug area under the stairs is unusable as it full of pillows, plates fixed to the wall and ornaments. Some of the plates on display are bog standard dinner plates. Towards the back of the house, also not seen in the photos, is a large area of floor to ceiling shelves covering an area of approx 6-8m2 of wall and standing out almost a foot. It serves no purpose, other than to maybe hide some issue with the wall, looks like its been fitted by a 5 year old, and as you’ve probably guessed, it crammed with useless dirty ornaments. The house has 2 old writing bureau for some reason. One cupboard is tied shut and marked “Do Not Open” and an old Singer sewing machine forms the centrepiece of the living room. Plus points. The area is reasonably quiet, there’s a shop at the top of the road and a pub 10mins walk away."

"We really enjoyed our stay and Claremont House and Chris was lovely.The hot tub and spa was a lovely addition to the place, although the hot tub could have done with a good clean and a couple of the nozzles weren't working properly.Off street parking was a plus if a little congested at times. This place was advertised as a luxury apartment but for me it lacked the luxury part which is reflected in my review. If this hadn't have been advertised as luxury my review would be very different as it's a nice place to stay.The following is what took away the luxury part for me:No housekeeping all week, only 1 spare loo roll provided and no spare bin bags.The bed was very soft and could do with a new mattress. The bedding had a rough pattern on the duvet cover and pillow cases, I would suggest changing these for plain ones.The towels were too small and mismatched, consider replacing with matching bath sheets.There was a random freezer in the bedroom, would never use it because of the noise it would make, so just remove it.Consider adding some curtains in the bedroom because the sun comes through the slats in the very nice wooden blinds and shined straight into my face from about 5/6am.The light in the bathroom was a waste of time, could barely tell it had been switched on, consider upgrading to a brighter unit/bulb.Other than that everything else was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

"My wife and I stayed here in Juky 2015, with our two dogs. We are vey fond of Ventnor and this seemed to meet our requirements.However, the constant parking issues, proximity to the busy A3055 (I.e. at the bottom of the garden) and the very poor standard of cleanliness (epitomised by the week old half loaf of bread on the patio table that greeted us on arrival), only partially redeemed by the great sea views, made this a disappointing experience. We get that backing on the downs then it's inevitable that Mother Nature will encroach, but the presence of so many dead bugs, cobwebs and even mouse droppings by the back door suggests cleaning is not a high priority.Parking was a constant challenge. The claim in the cottage information pack of two parking places was only true to the extent that there were indeed 2 on-street parking places at the foot of the garden, but these were not designated for the cottage, were always occupied and we usually had to park a considerable distance from the house.The A3055 - the main road from Ventnor to Sandown - was at the foot of the garden and was fairly intrusive when we were in the garden. All in all this cottage felt neglected and represented very poor value for money."

"This is, without any doubt, the dirtiest place we have ever stayed in.The entire house, and in particular the kitchen, was very dirty and we had to wash the surfaces, the utensils, cutlery and plates before we were able to use them. The dishwasher leaks, so does the kettle. You need a torch to see the cooker dials.The patio door leading out from the dining room had no lock or handle and water came in when it was raining.The dining room chairs are broken and dangerous. One even fell apart whilst sitting on it, which easily could have ended in injury. The wooden floors and carpets need a proper deep cleaning too. The house is also infested by slugs, which could be found every day in the kitchen and the living room. Slugs are appearing from under the dish washer and the kitchen cabinet next to the cooker.Walls are dirty and holes in them can be found throughout the house, as well as in some of the ceilings. There are dead flies and dust on the windows, which are all dirty too.The bathrooms, quite frankly, should be ripped out and replaced. The shower in the shower room downstairs is broken and the upper shower cubicle is full of mould."

"The cottage was in a great location for exploring the Island. The cottage itself needs completely updating. The kitchen cupboard was hanging on by one hinge as was the side gate. All the blinds were covered in dust and few of them worked properly, one of the window latches came off when we tried to open the window.The cottage was plenty big enough for 7 of us and beds very comfortable, the dining room table was a good size and plenty of chairs. Lots of cutlery and glasses. The picture of the garden isn't accurate as it is all very overgrown and needs a bit of attention. Overall a nice stay for one week but that was enough, and sorry to say but we wouldn't stay here again unless the whole house had some work done on it. Lovely touch with the wine and crisps."
