About Annabel Victoria Harrison


Guestbook comments from the manager

Utterly delightful house in a very convenient location. The best-equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in! We had a couple of minor queries which were cleared up immediately - the owner actually paid a personal evening visit to ensure that all was well, which was well beyond the call of duty.

It was our daughter and her husband's first visit to the IoW and they fell in love with the island, vowing to return with their daughter. So there will be competition to rent the house next summer!

Would you like to book the same holiday house again next year:

Bijou Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Extremely well presented cottage, located in a quiet residential location. Weather was excellent. Garden needs some attention (photo adjacent is deceiving !) and all the seat covers had been put away damp rendering them useless. Very well equipped cottage and we used the bar b q twice. The cottage is 5 mins walk from the Gurnard sea front and only 2 mins from general store, papers and pub. There was ample room for the 2 of us plus a small dog. Fairly good location for getting around to all IOW attractions. Do not rely on the floating bridge at Cowes as all cars were 'grounding' on the access ramps.

Excellent Property in a Quiet but Exclusive Area

  • 4 of 5

This property had everything you could possibly want and more for a very comfortable Holiday

Clean comfortable homely and well provisioned

Beautiful sea walks and an excellent pub at the top of the road which welcomed dogs and served excellent food

All this literally on your doorstep

I would certainly recommend this property to anybody wanting a tranquil and fulfilling base for their stay

However It should be noted that the staIrs in this property are steep and narrow but otherwise everything is perfect

Wolfreton is certainly worth a visit

Summer in Gurnard

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. Only just over a mile walk into Cowes but nice and quiet. Views of the Solent from the front bedroom window. Excellent facilities like a home from home. Very clean and plenty of storage. BBQ was a welcome addition. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the Isle of Wight

Pleasantly surprised.

  • 4 of 5

Wolfreton is a home from home property, everything you need is supplied. A lovely dog friendly back garden that our little Yorkie enjoyed. Off road parking, which is a godsend in this day and age. A pub up the road that does food in the evenings, a grocers and newsagents around the corner. Gurnard is a quiet area with a lovely coastline. The whole of the property is very tastefully decorated, especially the bedrooms and bathroom, light and airy. You wouldn't be disappointed if you choose to stay at Wolfreton.

Well-equipped, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wolfreton is a lovely cottage in a quiet street within easy walking distance of the beach and local shops. The cottage is presented beautifully and furniture, fittings, equipment are all provided to a very high standard - a real 'home from home'! We loved it and highly recommend it to others.

The beach is a short walk away, just down the hill, you can see the sea from the street and from the window upstairs.

Other forms of transport include Hovertravel, foot passengers only (Southsea to Ryde), Wightlink catarman, foot passengers only (Portsmouth to Ryde) and Red Jet (Southampton to Cowes). There is a small private airport at Bembridge and Sandown.

Further Details:

There is lots to do on the Island, as mentioned above, Osbourne House is one of the attractions, but also theme parks, Robin Hill and Blackgang Chine, Carisbroke Castle is a great day out and many fabulous walks and beaches which are free!
