Craiglea is a peaceful, self-catering holiday cottage on the Isle of Wight sleeping up to six adults. Centrally located in Totland Bay, on the West coast of the Isle of Wight, our holiday accommodation is just 5 minutes’ walk from the beach.

Our cottage is a short walk to unspoiled beaches that face West - you might catch some spectacular sunsets. We're on the doorstep to The Needles Battery & Park, Tennyson Down, Headon Warren, Freshwater Bay and Yarmouth. Goodleaf Tree Climbing, the Owl & Monkey Haven, Osborne House and Robin Hill Country park are all less than 20 miles away.

Great for couples, families and groups. Arf! oh, and other well behaved additions to the family by arrangement! Whether you come for a family holiday, one of the many 2012 events on the island, or a romantic getaway, you will never run out of things to do: take your pick from walking, cycling, sailing, paragliding, tree climbing, and horse riding! See the "Things to do" section of our website to whet your appetite.

We think one of the highlights of the the holiday home is the interior. You'll find three stylishly-decorated bedrooms with very comfy mattresses for a great night's sleep, a living room with a big leather sofa and leather chairs, and a kitchen and dining area that can cater for groups of adults. It's a good recipe for a relaxing break away from the stresses of daily life.

Visit our website for prices, availability, online booking and lots of information about the cottage and its beautiful surroundings.

Further details indoors

Come and take a peek inside our Isle of Wight holiday accommodation! The self-catering holiday cottage features three cosy, stylishly-decorated bedrooms, a living room and a fully-equipped kitchen and adjoining dining room that comfortably seats six adults.

We think you’ll love the Master Bedroom! Located on the ground floor of the cottage, the bedroom has a very comfy John Lewis Queen sized double, lots of pillows, and furnishings inspired by Africa with rich teracottas and African ornaments. On the first floor of the accommodation, the purple double bedroom is equally as cosy and has another comfortable John Lewis bed for a great night’s sleep. The blue twin bedroom, with double aspect windows, sleeps two adults comfortably; it’s also great for kids.

The lounge has a clean modern look with comfortable seating for six adults. Nothing beats sinking into our huge black leather sofa after a brisk walk around West Wight – whether you’ve headed up to the Needles and Tennyson Down or to nearby Yarmouth – with a nice cuppa tea. The living room also has three leather chairs, inset gas fireplace, and thick rug on polished floorboards, as well as a flatscreen TV, video, DVD, stereo (cd/tape/radio) and a range of books and board games for fun evenings in. The cottage also features a Nintendo Wii with the popular Sports Resort game.

Whether you’re just starting out or getting some last minute practice in for Masterchef, the kitchen has everything you need and has ample counter space to cook for a family or group of adults. The kitchen has been designed and fitted to a high standard by John Lewis and includes full hob/oven, toaster, fridge/freezer, Bosch microwave and dishwasher, and Miele washing machine. A tumble dryer is also provided. The dining area adjoins the kitchen and seats six.

Further details outdoors

At the rear of our holiday accommodation, in the direction of the West Wight coastline, is a pleasant enclosed garden with garden table and chairs. The double doors from the dining room can be opened up to provide a nice area for eating al-fresco.

There is parking behind the garden.

Whether you’re after a holiday rental for a short break such as a long weekend or several weeks, previous guests have found the cottage a relaxing base for exploring West Wight and beyond.

The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is a treasure trove of picturesque villages, spectacular cliffs, downland, sandy beaches, rich farmlands, creeks, marshland, river valleys as well as having a rich diversity of wildlife, flora and fauna. Just being here is a joy.

The West Wight has many areas of outstanding natural beauty - rolling countryside, peaceful forests, picturesque villages and breathtaking coastal scenery, such as the rugged white cliffs of Freshwater Bay, the multi-coloured sandstone cliffs of Alum Bay and of course, the famous landmark Needles rocks.

"Well Equipped house"

Thank you very much for sending in a review. I'm glad you found the house well looked after and in a good location. Thank you also for your helpful suggestions. There are cafe style aluminium chairs on the patio and a small drinks table. Your suggestion of having a table for dining alfresco is an excellent one and I'll be on the outlook for a suitable one. I'm sorry the youngsters were confronted with a slow internet connection. I have had an extended conversation with Plus Net, our ISP, about how it can be improved. It's usage for the month had been exceeded and it had slowed down. As a result of this, I have gone onto a better contract. Having had teenagers myself, I can well understand their frustration and, indeed, yours!

Dear Holiday Maker: What can I say except thank you? You have sent a wonderful review. I'll hasten to add that we don't know one another so the review is not coloured by a personal connection! I am delighted you were able to relax and to take advantage of what the Totland area can offer. Having put a lot of care into the cottage, it is great to have it appreciated. Thank you; it makes it all(almost) worthwhile!

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. It is always encouraging to know when things go well. I hope this will be the first of many holidays on the IOW and that Craiglea will be part of them. It was very nice to read: "everything about this house made our stay relaxing and enjoyable." Thank you and come again!
