    About this property

    This spacious detached holiday home offers the highest standards of furnishings and equipment and is conveniently located in a quiet ’no-through’ road. What makes this property stand out even more is its private 4 person hot tub. The rooms have been carefully co-ordinated and styled, and there are many additions such as a centrally operated stereo with speakers in all rooms, and a 6ft bed in the master bedroom. The enclosed lawned garden with an outdoor kitchen and decking area is a perfect place for enjoying a drink on a warm summer’s evening as the sun goes down. The Acorns is located on the edge of Wootton Bridge with walks to Woodside beach. There is a millpond at Wootton Creek; historically there was a mill which was used to grind flour. The creek is a haven for wildlife, as is the pond which is a Special Area of Conservation. Firestone Copse, adjacent to the pond, offers scenic walks and is Forestry Commission woodland – you may be lucky enough to see the famous red squirrels! Ryde, 10 minutes’ drive, has a long esplanade with plenty of attractions, six miles of sandy beach with children’s play area, ten pin bowling, indoor pool, ice rink, a high speed catamaran operating between Portsmouth and the pier head, pubs, restaurants, riding, golf, sailing, fishing and go-karting. The local steam railway offers a nostalgic ride into the nearby Smallbrook in Ryde. Explore the best of the shoreline along Heritage coastal paths or visit NT homes and gardens, Calbourne Water Mill, pottery, glass blowing, a donkey sanctuary, a zoo, Osborne House, the Needles, wildlife centres, tea rooms and craft shops. To the east of the island, discover quaint sailing villages such as Bembridge and Seaview, and within easy reach is Cowes. Newport has shops, eateries and waterside dining, and this leads to Carisbrooke, home of the historic castle. Visit picturesque villages such as Godshill, Old Shanklin and Brighstone, The Garlic Farm, a lavender farm and vineyards. Theme parks include Robin Hill Adventure Park, Blackgang Chine or The Needles, wildlife such as the Seaview Wildlife EncounterFlamingo Park, Sandown Zoo, an owl and falconry and various farms to see the animals.

    "Spacious property in good location. Lovely walks locally and excellent meal had at the Sloop Inn, carvery is £3.50! Aug 2009."
    "A lovely and gorgeous property, enough space for everyone. A special touch with a gift from the owner. The hot tub was an added bonus, would defiantly go back again and would highly recommend it. Thank you for making our holiday so comfortable 😀 Was sad to leave😢"
    "We had a fantastic holiday on the island which was made betterms by the quality accommodation that we had. Perfect weather , great accommodation and great location = great holiday. Would definitely book again 😊"
    "Good central location for visiting the Island. Property next to a fairly busy road. Rear garden enclosed but slopes so not ideal for children to play in. Good sun deck and hot tub.Spacious house but lots of low level ornaments and in one bedroom ornamental knives - not really child friendly.Basic essentials like soaps on hand basins, bin liners and paper towels not present. Limited numbers of dishwasher tablets.Faulty kitchen equipment, toaster and dishwasher reported to cleaning staff for action"
    "We had a lovely time staying at the acorns. We were met on arrival and the welcome gifts were a lovely touch. The house was clean and there was plenty of space for us all (7 of us stayed). The house is in a great location with several attractions only 5 minutes away. The house is fairly central on the island so the rest are only a short drive away too! I know people have complained about the parking on previous reviews due to the attached beauty salon, we had 3 cars to park on the drive. To be honest we were out all day exploring the island while the salon was open and by the time we got back it had closed for the day. On the one day we were around during opening hours we didn't experience any problems parking. This place is great and would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice place to stay to explore the island!"
    "Very comfortable and well equipped. The owner met us and was very accomodating and helpful. We had no complaints."
    "We absolutely loved our stay at The Acorns. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. We were made to feel very welcome by arriving to fresh fruit, flowers, wine and cake. We will definitely be booking again. Thanks for a pleasant stay."
    "On first inspection the Acorns appeared very clean, however it became apparent that the house was in need of some maintenance and a proper clean. Copious amounts of dust covering the curtains and pelmets. Dirty washing machine and tumble dryer,dirty mattresses, pillows and cushions, lamp cable held together with tape, shower head in ensuite fell off and narrowly missed hitting my head. Same shower frequently goes cold after 10 minutes. Heavily stained bath towels. Only one television works NOT 4 tv's as advertised. Parking for 4 guest vechiles in front of the house but cars from the beauty salon almost daily park on the driveway making maneuvering on and off the drive difficult. The beauty salon is immediately opposite the house in the garage! No idea it would be so close."

    "A wonderful house with the added bonus of a beauty room ’Vanity’ in the garage of the property. Location made sightseeing very easy. Local restaurants and take away resturants close by. Lots of information leaflets at the house for places to visit and eat. June 2012."
    Previous guest
    "The house is very finished to a high standard, it is well equipped and comfortable. The house is located close to a busy road and so there was some traffic noise at times but the location within a small cul-de-sac meant that children could play at the front of the property or in the enclosed garden safely. It was a great location from which to explore the island. March 2012."
