The apartment is in a great location and the parking was a real bonus! Everything was decorated beautifully and to a really high standard, the kitchen was well kitted out which we made use of on several nights. The bed was lovely and comfortable, the bathroom was luxurious and the living/dining area was warm and cosy. We didn't make full use of the garden as the weather was a little on the breezy side but on warmer days it's a lovely addition to the apartment. There was lots to do within walking distance of the apartment, shops, restaurants (In particular Masala Bay if you like Indian Food) and lovely coastal walks. Definitely check out Crave ice cream parlour - we became regulars in our short time there! If you're looking for a beautiful apartment for two on the Isle of Wight then look no further than Swiss Cottage, it's absolutely perfect and we are already planning a return visit.
