    "On a positive note the location of the Old stable is very good and provides easy access to the whole island. It is close to Newport where the big supermarkets are. The kitchen has lots of plates, bowls and equipment. The walk from the door is lovely. There are lots and toys and games for the children and the kids room is sweet. The laundry/boot room is handy. The bees are great. Personally I would not recommend the property for lots of reasons. The photos advertising it are old, the Old stable is a lot more worn than it appears. The kitchen is cramped as the aga is not working a gas cooker has been put on the end of a counter making the kitchen further cramped. It is also in a dangerous position when you have small, boiling pan height children trying to get past.The downstairs is dark and cold with one of the bedrooms downstairs. My 11 year old chose to sleep in with his little brothers as it's a very depressing room.The upstairs is brighter but still tired and in need of some care and attention. The children were covered in either rug hairs or dog hairs everytime they lay on the rug. The sofas are uncomfy, lumpy and old. There is lots of damage(cup stains, marks on things) meaning it not only adds to the sad feel but means making sure we got our deposit back (which we did) seemed harder as we weren't sure of all the previous damage. Having paid a £50 non refundable cleaning charge I would have hoped everywhere would be spotless but it needs a deep clean everywhere. We could see the house was once loved but it either needs a big renovation or a lower price. Overall it has a slightly gloomy and depressing feeling and we were glad to go home."

    "STRONGLY advise not to book. The cottage was poorly laid out and quite grimy on arrival and the person who met us to hand over the keys and show us around was clearly not keen or comfortable to be there. After complex instructions about not using too many power sockets at the same time as this will blow the fuse and she is the only one with access to the fuse box, she attempted to change a blown lightbulb (an eco-long life bulb!) and broke it in the socket. It was over one of the child's beds and she was going to just leave it! After we insisted it was changed and done it ourselves she also told us one of the bedrooms did not have any working sockets. We were left feeling the electrics were unsafe! After she left we found that the cottage was not well cleaned, we had to clean the bath before using, floors were not well hoovered, kitchen surfaces were dusty and grimy etc. and the back door was falling apart!I would STRONGLY advise anyone NOT to book this cottage. The price quoted does not include the £50.00 cleaning fee later charged and to cap it all the owner then claimed we left the cottage in such a mess that she had to keep and additional £70 of our deposit to cover additional cleaning. We were only there for two full days, most of which we were not in the house AND my wife is a bit OCD about cleanliness and we had to clean parts of the house ourselves on arrival. We categorically and vigorously dispute her claims yet she refuses to enter in to any communication. She has told the letting agent about me harrassing her with phone calls, saying I had left ten messages. I left one as she refused to answer any calls or text messages and I had to get the agent to contact her about our deposit. This for us has ruined a pleasant, short (2 day) family holiday."

    "It was very warm, had plenty of hot water and good bathrooms. The house is dark and it was difficult to read. Many lightbulbs were missing - no replacements. One circuit of sockets was not working, so there were no bedside lamps. Some crockery and one saucepan were dirty. There was no water jug and the frying pan was, frankly, an insult. The drain outside the kitchen regularly overflowed. There was no vacuum cleaner or cloths (washing up etc). TV was very difficult to use and one leg fell off the first evening. Apart from the faults I have mentioned, the house was clean, and Carole gave us a good welcome."
