Excellent getaway in Brading, up a luxurious drive leading into a beautiful house with attached cottage. Colin & Julie greeted us as if we were old friends making us feel right at home. The cottage was beautiful, spotless, the amenities fantastic-we will be staying again!!! Julie also makes a mean cake :)
What a beautiful cottage, in a cracking location. The welcome from Colin & Julie was wonderful, along with the welcome treats in the cottage - THANK YOU! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & the hosts were more than helpful to us. The cottage was immaculate & had everything necessary for a faultless holiday - the sun shone, the sea shimmered & the beaches had warm sand - what more could we ask for! We'll be back to the island again & couldn't fault Marmalade Cottage X
I chose Marmalade cottage because of the good reviews & found them to be every bit true! Colin & Julie are indeed wonderful hosts that make you feel so very welcome & at home. Being grandparents themselves,they really know what a family with young children need (ours being two lively boys aged 2 & 8), kitting out this home from home with toys and games and more than enough facilities. But equally they look after us parents, with treats in the fridge to greet you. Everything was absolutely perfect & I can't thank Colin & Julie enough for providing us
with such a lovely place to stay - we wanted to spend just as much time in the cottage as having days out (& this was in a hot, sunny week). Highly recommended!!!
Just returned from a lovely week here. Julie and Colin went the extra mile to ensure we were really comfortable with a lovely welcome basket (cake and wine) and checked in by text to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage has a great living space with kitchen and two large sofas, as well as a large bathroom and plenty of storage space in the bedrooms. Even in the hottest week of the year, its shady spot meant we always came back to a cool house at the end of the day. It's ideally located for exploring the whole island, and close to local pubs serving great food. The setting is beautiful with views over the countryside and sea too. We hope to be back before too long!
We have just enjoyed a lovely week at Marmalade Cottage.
Julie and Colin were really welcoming and my twin toddlers warmed to them instantly. We arrived to a clean, spacious cottage which has a real home from home feel Wyeth everything you might need - it was perfect for us as a young family!
The cottage itself was a short drive from Fishbourne and was a great base for the week to get around the island. We particularly enjoyed the beaches and Robin Hill's Adventure Park which were on our door step.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week (despite the unpredictable British Summer downpours) and will definitely be returning!
Thank you Julie and Colin for having us and making us feel so welcome.
