About this property

Orchard Leigh Cottage is a the perfect base for exploring this popular southern part of the Isle of Wight, and being located close to Bonchurch Beach is an added bonus.

Orchard Leigh Cottage nestles in the beautiful village of Bonchurch, just below the National Trust owned St Boniface Downs which creates a micro-climate and wildlife haven with lots of flora and fauna to admire on the Downs and within the village. Guests can easily walk to the nearby beach and continue to stroll along to the ever popular Victorian seaside town of Ventnor to enjoy the seaside attractions and the variety of shops, restaurants and pubs.

The cottage has a modern open-planned layout on the ground floor which includes a comfortable seating area for watching television, a bright well-equipped kitchen and a large dining table and chairs. There is a courtyard garden at the front of the property where guests can sit and relax. On the first floor are two spacious bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms, and there is a separate utility room. For those looking for a pleasant and comfortable cottage to return to after a day of exploring this beautiful area, lovely Orchard Leigh Cottage ticks all the boxes.

      Not up to the normal standard for Rural Retreats. Noise problem at night which prevented sleep for several nights. Cleanliness issues - soiled nappy left in guest bathroom - totally unacceptable. Also large amount of fluff under beds and ornaments not dusted properly. Not what we expect from this company.

      Firstly, Orchard Leigh Cottage is in Bonchurch near Ventnor which is nowhere near Yarmouth (at the other end of the island). The photograph of the property is misleading as it implies that there is an attractive outdoor sitting and dining space whereas in reality it is squeezed in at the end of the very limited car parking space which is also adjacent to where tenants of Orchard Leigh Villa park their cars. The description of the property does not make clear that there is no other outdoor space accessible to the residents. The ‘Welcome’ hamper was mean and unwelcoming - 3 tea bags, no butter, a tiny amount of salt, no oil, 4 dishwasher tablets, minimal stale instant coffee. Not up to usual Rural Retreats excellent standards. There were two cheap toilet rolls and what seemed like heavily rationed soap in dispensers. The place was clean but all in all very disappointing and not what we are used to in all our stays with RR.

      Cottage was lovely, very well equipped. In terms of the location, I would have preferred somewhere with at least a shop in the village. And a pub nearby. And the outside patio was very small, and overlooked the car park.
