“A beautiful and unique house with awesome views”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A very lovely and comfortable house, with space enough for the twelve people in our group (including a baby). This beautiful house has a style and décor like no other I have stayed in, I loved it! An ace feature was the terrace/balcony off the master bedroom suite, which had truly jaw dropping views of the sea and the countryside. The accommodation is fully and thoughtfully equipped with everything you should or might need.

The owners/hosts were great. Really friendly and welcoming, and though at first I was a little put out to learn that they lived ‘on site’ so to speak, at the end of the garden, they were not in the least bit intrusive. They were lovely, told us to give them a ring if there was anything we needed, but other than the warm greeting on arrival and occasionally crossing paths on the drive, we scarcely saw them. We did not feel at all watched over.

The house is in a great spot, not far from the delightful offerings of Shanklin village, which is approx. 0.8 miles away. The journey is a few minutes by car, or 15 minutes if you fancy a nice but hilly walk. There is also a footpath down to the beach, which is an approx.15 minute walk depending on your pace, and on whether you’re going up or down the hill.

If I had to nit-pick, and it would indeed be nit-picking as I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, I would mention that the garden is not enclosed. So, if you have any little runaway toddlers in your party, it means there is no lazy parenting to be had outdoors!

“Stunning”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent a week at Corydon in May 2015 with my parents, sister and my two daughters aged 1 and 3. The accommodation was absolutely fabulous - outside there is a beautiful well kept garden with swings and plenty of things to explore (such as the finnish hut!) and inside is a spacious yet comfy and cosy house. The accommodation is spread out which was great for energetic kids and also (importantly!) meant that the whole house wasn't woken up with the kids first thing. The bathrooms were beautifully decorated and the kitchen extremely well equipped. We enjoyed drinks in the snug in the evenings and the living room had very comfy sofas and a huge TV and stunning views.

The surrounding area is really easy to explore from here and there is lots to do in both Shanklin and the surrounding area whatever the weather. Our 3 year old loved the amusements down by the beach front in Shanklin.

Finally, we have to mention the badger spotting! We saw them several times at dusk out in the garden from one of the bedroom windows, and even saw a fox one night as well! Fantastically exciting!

I cant recommend this house highly enough to families looking for a low stress fun break in a beautiful part of the UK.

We stayed for 2 weeks this year and it wasn't long enough. The house is just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. Set back from the village it's the perfect spot to get away from everything. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this as the ideal base for a holiday on the island.
