Private location with a generous driveway and gardens. Old schoolhouse which has retained its charm but has been modernised. Good sized and airy lounge with comfortable couches and dining table, well equipped kitchen and access to the garden with amazing views over Totland beach. Upstairs the master bedroom is spacious and bright and the 2nd room had a cot for our 18 month daughter. The cottage also provided a high chair and stairgates along with some toys and books. The gardens were a great asset as we could let our daughter run around outside in the morning before we went out and again after dinner before bedtime. The location of the cottage meant that The Needles was only minutes away and so were the beaches of Totland and Colwell Bay. The Hut at Colwell Bay is worth a visit as great food, drinks and service and the local takeaway Sunbo was fantastic. There isn't a lot of option for takeaways but local Co-Op & Tesco Express is nearby. Red Lion is recommended but they aren't kid friendly (no kids menu or highchairs). If you haven't been to the IOW before, everywhere is close but takes a while to get to as the locals drive very slowly! Good days out are Compton Beach which is where the locals go and the highlight of our holiday was Tapnell Farm. Thanks Hilary & Sharon for making Little Mount a perfect little getaway.

Very clean and extremely well equipped. Welcome pack was provided on arrival. There were plenty of toys for our grandson to play with - both in the house and the garden and also a wind break etc for the beach. Dave and Sophie clearly want their guests to have a really good holiday and seem to have thought of everything to achieve this. One of the best cottages we've stayed in.

The garden was amazing and the walks just outside the garden gate delighted the dogs. It was a little out the way but this I found delightful, with everything within close driving distance. Teresa created lovely communication and when a friend of mine, who had rented a dirty dingy place in East Cowes found themselves unable to remain there, I was able to explain their staying the last night at Ivy cottage to Teresa. The upstairs shower was just fab! I didn't use the downstairs one. Plus the beds and linen where of fantastic quality. My first ever trip to the Isle of Wight .... already planning going back! I return to the mainland rested and relaxed. Thank you Teresa and your team x
