"Great Place to stay, very good owners, who want guest to have a great time."

Great, place, great location. Traveled with a 1 and 2.5yr old. Lots and lots of toys, in doors and out. Very involved owners who would do anything to make sure the stay was good and took on board any feedback. We have already booked for next year we liked the house so much. I think that says it all, we wouldn't be returning if it wasn't good :)

"Excellent"

Firstly we would like to thank John and Louise for arranging such fantastic weather for our stay! We were expecting changeable weather and packed accordingly, therefore, the washing machine came in most useful recycling our hot, hot, hot weather gear!
Camellia Cottage lived up to every expectation and more! The toys provided for children were fantastic and each day our grandchildren seemed to find something even more exciting to play with...however, the trampoline outweighed almost every thing!
The garden is a sheer delight with so many nooks and crannies to explore.
The accommodation is of a very high standard and almost everything is provided one could possibly wish for, with the exception of a spaghetti fork! but hey we managed to survive as we seemed to have every other conceivable device in the kitchen!
We had a really super holiday at Camellia Cottage and were touched by the wonderful little extras provided!
Not forgetting the amazing Badgers! what a wonderful treat, one evening we were visited by four badgers! and the wonderful Red Squirrels - what a treat to see them too!

"A perfect cottage in a beautiful location couldn't of asked for more!!!"

We stayed at Camellia cottage last week and had an absolutely wonderful time, the owners had thought of everything and everybody from the adults to the children, even the pets! There was nothing we wanted for all week. The cottage was so lovely and really felt like home, the welcome pack was a wonderful surprise too! A real highlight if the stay are the animal friends that come to visit of an evening we were really lucky to have not only the badgers, but the fox, the mouse and the bats too it really was amazing to watch. The outdoor space was fantastic and well thought out and also a really safe environment for children and pets alike. To be honest our stay was faultless and the owners were really lovely too, can't wait to return again soon.

"Came highly recommended but was even better than expected"

Fabulous cottage with everything you could possible want or need. Children especially well catered for with loads of games and toys both inside and out. (Even the dogs had bowls and leads and ball games). If you are keen on cooking the kitchen is very well equipped and there are two BBQs for the avid outdoorsy guests. We felt as though we were staying at a friend's cottage who had just gone away for a few days, it really felt like home from home. The garden was also a delight and very secluded and the walks both above and below the cottage were just minutes away. The badgers came for their supper every evening at 9pm without fail. We were enthralled to see them.... such noisy feeders! We spent 5 nights at Camellia Cottage with our handicapped son and it was one of his best holidays yet. It was hard to say goodbye and head home. Thank you for everything.

"Perfect."

As I said in the title this place is perfect. John and Louise have thought of everything and there really isn't anything you need for your stay (well maybe sellotape :-) ) Staying here is a holiday in itself even without all the great places to visit on the island. The natural wildlife is really cool and the badger feed became an important part of the evening. Thank you John for helping get my car fixed and being so understanding. If you are going to stay at Camellia Cottage then please don't get there before 3pm as requested because they guys have some much to so in so little time. Lovely couple and we hope to see you again next year. Thanks for everything

"Absolutely just perfect"

Camellia Cottage was spotless and everything you would need for a holiday and much more. We just couldn't fault it. House just amazingly wonderful. Garden enchanting, peaceful with BBQ, swings, and badgers! The owners have thought of everything, football table, games, puzzles, books, DVD's, Xbox for whatever the weather. Personal touches, strawberries and cream, wine, chocolates and gift toiletries on arrival!! Great old pub with fab food just around the corner and lovely walks. Our son was married next door at the Enchanted Manor and often visitors came to visit. There was plenty of room to entertain. We have already booked to go back. Can't wait....

"Camelia Cottage Revisted."

I stayed at Camelia Cottage with my partner and young son in 2010 and was delighted with the accommodation and location. This Easter we revisited with the incusion of my adult son, daughter and her finance. The magic of the garden inspired a competitive Easter egg hunt. A lovely warm and wecoming holiday cottage inspired by thoughtful and considerate owners who have taken great care to ensure come rain or shine you will really enjoy your stay. We really enjoyed Carisbrook Castle this visit.

"A bit of all Wight"

We stayed at Camellia Cottage for a week and loved every minute of it.

The accommodation itself is fantastic. It's much roomier than it appears in the pictures. There's no need to pack any toys as the place is crammed with every conceivable thing you could wish for to keep the kids entertained - all the way from building blocks to an XBox.

The kitchen is also extremely well-kitted out with every utensil imaginable and we really enjoyed cooking on the Aga.

The huge garden is beautiful and peaceful and, as the gate can be locked, it gives the kids the freedom to explore its many nooks and crannies and enjoy the trampoline, swings and slide.

But the best thing about the cottage is the badgers. Stick some bread and jam out and, regular as clockwork, they'll troop out at about 9pm and spend ages snuffling around inches from the patio doors.

The location is perfect too. A 10 minute drive from Blackgang Chine - which my kids loved as much as I did when I was their age - and round the corner from a fantastic pub that does great food, puts on music in the garden and has sea views.

The owner John couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming - even taking a last minute dash to the ferry port at Cowes to give me my iPhone after I left it at the cottage when we left.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Camellia Cottage to anyone and we'll definitely be back soon.
