There are some great pubs, beach bars and restaurants in this area of the Island.

Country walks and cycle tracks are all close by. Newport, the islands capital with abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants is a 30 minute riverside walk, or only a few minutes by car. Cyclists can enjoy the local tracks which are accessed close by, linking many outstanding miles over the island.

A short ½ mile stroll along the river, leads to the popular yachtsman’s waterhole ‘The Folly Inn’ with lively evening entertainment, good food and large fresco terrace.

There are coastal walks along the beaches which can be enjoyed as well as bridle paths and cycle ways along the downs taking in the breathtaking views of the patchwork countryside and out to sea.

Beaches around the island change as you venture along the coast. Gurnard is the closest beach and Ryde itself enjoys 6 miles of stunning sandy beach where cricket games are played on the sand banks during very low tide. Round the coast there are pebbled beaches, sandy beaches, great beach restaurants and pretty marinas, all this part of the coast is well worth investigating.

"A high quality property in a great location overlooking a marina"

We stayed for 3 nights with our teenage sons. The property is on 3 floors and fitted out to a high standard. It is in a great location with good access to Newport & East Cowes. Would definitely recomm… More

"With a bit more thought to furnishings and better care it could be perfect"

This property is 3 storey end-terrace townhouse facing fields and backing onto a marina, situated in a relatively new development which has a large number of empty properties, hence is very quiet. Go… More

The house is cleaned regularly, it is relatively new with high-end fittings and appliances. The cleaner vehemently disagrees with this verdict on cleanliness. There was an issue with one toilet which kept flushing which the plumber has attended to. These things can happen in any house. As there are 4 toilets in the property this should not have been an issue. In addition there were cleaning cloths but the guest apparently was not happy to use the J cloths provided. There is also a small shop on site if alternative cleaning materials are preferred and I am always happy to refund the cost (approval first please from myself of caretaker).

There is a sloped access to the property as well as the steps and my disabled mother uses the ground floor, with access to a shower room (adapted for handicapped persons) and the kitchen/diner but the rest of the house is not easily accessible for disabled persons.

This is a house, not a hotel with concierge service, which many guests conveniently forget. The house has a 4-star rating from the two letting agencies I use and is of a very high standard throughout. It is inspected regularly by both myself and them. Reviews are welome but a more balanced view is appreciated. Considering the low cost per person and the presentation of the house - ample towels, soaps, accessories etc. the house is remarkable value for money.
