Read all the previous reviews and thought this was the place for us - Absolutely fantastic cottage accomodation.
We stayed in Inglenook cottage - excellent facilites throughout, kitchen, bedroom and a stunning bathroom. Good off road parking with a very quiet and private outside front garden space. Cottage is very warm with a lovely fire to heat through on top a very good warm air system.
We have stayed in some fab places during our 4 years in Aus and this is up there with the best.
For the record Cowes is great for a weekend break and a visit to the Penguins is a must, we did the ultimate adventure tour, it is amazing but be prepared for walking and getting up close and personal with nature !!
Thank you Holmwood for a wonderful weekend - we wil be back for sure.

Glad you enjoyed Holmwood and the Penguins. The Ultimate Tour is amazing. Its more expensive but I think it is worth every cent given you are taken in a group of 10 or less to an empty beach where the penguins almost walk over your feet! The night vision glasses walky talky and personal guide add to the experience as does the walk back through the rookeries. Its a shame you didn't get a chance to take a boat trip out to the seals - next time!

Our second visit to Holmwood and just as enchanting as the 1st.

Beautifully presented B&B in a very convenient location, extremely comfy bed and room, spotless throughout, modern bathroom, friendly and professional staff, oh...and a delicious breakfast!
Only one problem...we had to go home and back to work.

Looking forward to our next visit to the island and Holmwood Guesthouse.
If you're heading down sometime soon, this is definitely the place to stay.

Stayed: May 2016, travelled with friends

That is the advantage of the Verandah room - the north facing seating area right outside your room. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the compliments.
