It was a lovely stay, very cosy with the log fire and loved walking around the countryside, big thanks to Nick and Kristina lovely hosts. Will definitely love to visit again and would have no problem recommending to others. Many Thanks.

The chalet is well looked after, very clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. The view is exellent and the chalet is in a great location. Really looking forward to going back again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay on the Isle of Wight.

The accommodation is to a really high standard and the hot tub was great! Lovely location overlooking the farm next door so our little one could see the cows and chickens out of his window. Kristina was very friendly and helpful and we appreciated the welcome hamper. Thank you!
