Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment has one of the best coastal views in Britain and is absolutely immaculate. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were warm and everything worked well. It was also quiet, so just sitting on the sofa, in front of the French windows, reading a good book was a real pleasure. From the front door you have a wonderful choice of walks, ranging from a casual stroll to the Bay, to a blustery walk up onto Tennyson Down, with fantastic views across the Solent and Dorset beyond, truly memorable for all the right reasons.

Dear Mrs Dineen

Myself, husband, daughter and fiancé have just returned from one week's holiday at your flat. We have been regular visitors to the Island for many years, so know it well. However, I can safely say that we have never stayed in such a lovely apartment and location as yours. Everything was as stated in the description and more! It was clean, well equipped and very comfortable, everything was to hand, making for a lovely holiday (even the weather was kind)!

I would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely flat and hope to return myself one day. If it is in order I would like to post a similar review on Trip Advisor, as this little gem needs to be shared!

Many thanks and wishing you well for the future.

Mrs M (stayed August 2014)



I stayed here with my adult son and we found the accommodation excellent. Apartment was clean, spacious and attractive. All facilities were good, view was stunning from both the balcony and the main bedroom. Wi-fi worked perfectly which was important to us and we had a really enjoyable weekend break.

Further Details:

The Isle of Wight covers an area of 380 km2. A large part, much of which is on the West of the Island where our apartment is situated, is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island boasts 57 miles of varied coastline and 258 km2 of farmland. There are hundreds of miles of interesting walking routes whether they be coastal, downland or inland - you can access several walks directly from the apartment without using your car. There are many villages both inland and coastal. Newport is the County town of the Island. It has an excellent variety of shops, boutiques and supermarkets - Morrisons, Sainsburys, Lidl, M&S and BHS to name but a few. It also holds a Farmers Market every Friday. A Waitrose in East Cowes and an Aldi in Cowes means we are spoilt for choice! There is also an Arts Centre, a Multiplex Cinema and a large leisure centre in Newport. There are many attractions such as stately homes, forts, castles, an Abby and gardens, many of which are owned by the National Trust and English Heritage - one of these is Osborne House at East Cowes. This was the summer home and indeed the final residence of Queen Victoria. There is plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities - sailing, surfing, body boarding, windsurfing, paragliding, swimming, sea canoeing, cycling, golf and horse riding. Or why not take a boat trip round the Island or go on an organised sea fishing trip. If railways are your interest take a trip on the Isle of Wight steam railway at Havenstreet. Locally, Yarmouth and Freshwater have a good variety of local shops and cafes as well as a Co-op, a Sainsbury's Express and a leisure centre. Just down the lane from the apartment is Dimbola Lodge - Dimbola was the home of the celebrated Victorian Photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. Now it is a museum dedicated to her life and work. It also has a tearoom and bookshop and the picturesque thatched church of St. Agnes is 100 yards up the road. There are also a number of pubs and hotels in the vicinity.
