Stayed for a 3 night visit & lovely location with over looking paddocks and very quiet. Cottages where clean with fresh linen only negative is that they lack a little maintenance. The pool also was not in operation nor was the family restaurant (we where advise of this before we booked)

We recently stayed using a Groupon voucher and it was wonderful value. Wish we could've stayed longer! Quiet and peaceful grounds yet so conveniently located near Cowes town centre. The cottages are spacious and well equipped. Toilet separate to bathroom, washing machine, oven, quality furnishings and linens. Much more than a cabin at a van park! Unfortunately our stay was...
