Very Good

“Fantastic holiday home”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2017

We had a brilliant time at Plum Cottage, the house was just like the pictures, very tastefully decorated and spotless clean. Location was great being in the centre of Ventnor and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Hope to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much, there is plenty to do on the Island so return visits are always welcome. Lyndsey

What a great find. Originally I had booked to stay at Seawinds in Gurnard but received a call 3 weeks before our holiday to say the owner had double booked. I chose plum cottage at short notice; I wouldn't usually have picked it as I like to have a sea view but am so pleased I did! Within an hour of booking it, Lucy had sent a load of details including a list of equipment she had for our toddler; this includes highchair, travel cot, stair gates, change mat, potty, baby bath, bed guard, plastic kitchen ware and a basket of toys. The instructions to get to and into the house were really clear, as were the instructions of where to park and how to get a permit. The house is really beautiful. It is well furnished and clean. It is really well equipped, particularly the kitchen, which has plenty of crockery and has really nice appliances; the oven is really modern! The house is very spacious and the rooms well furnished. The conservatory is a real welcome bonus as the small back courtyard is a sun trap. The back courtyard has a table and chairs for dining and also a breakfast bistro set. We also took it in turns to sit on the recliner in the sun. There were plenty of soft clean towels left for us, bedding was clean and there is loads of storage which is great. The only thing I could think would improve the storage is some over door hooks in the bedrooms. There are instructions left for everything. Some pointers for parents of youngsters. There is only a shower, but baby bath provided which fills quickly in the shower cubicle. Due to the stairlift, there is no way of securing a stair gate across the top or bottom of the stairs. We fixed one across the bunk room door way, but i was conscious of her getting out of the room and there being no further barrier. Also, there is a ceramic light pull in the bathroom that clunks on the shower cubicle (we parent a very light sleeper!) we put a baby sock over it so that it didn't wake our toddler! The rooms are quite light as mentioned in other reviews and because of the blinds we couldn't put up our travel black out, but it didn't affect our daughter at all. Also, there isn't a kitchen bin for general waste, just recycling, so we hung a bag off the cupboard door. The cottage is very well located at the top of Ventnor town. It is right near the cooperative, boots and Tesco express and so is convenient for picking up groceries. It's about a 10 min walk down a steep hill to the esplanade, which is lovely and peaceful. I was a bit wary of not having parking, but it really isn't a problem. We paid for a one week permit online which covered all island car parks except 4. The location was great for the attractions appropriate for a toddler; we went to monkey haven, Godshill, the beach at Sandown, Sandown zoo, Amazon world, the donkey sanctuary and the botanical gardens. The only thing that put a slight dampener on the stay for me was that between 2.30am and 3.30am on Saturday night/Sunday morning there was a lot of loud antisocial behaviour nearby, which sadly altered my perception of Ventnor. I'm not sure where had 'thrown out' at that time, but was surprised by the intimidating and antisocial nature of the behaviour on the street nearby and wonder why the police weren't involved. This of course was nothing to do with the accommodation or owner, and wasn't repeated the following Friday night, so could have been a one off. In summary, we were really disappointed when the owner of Seawinds cancelled our booking in Gurnard, but ended up delighted with our alternative accommodation. Plum cottage is well kept and the owner, Lucy goes above and beyond. Flowers and milk on arrival, potted pansies outside and a neatly planted back courtyard are just a few examples. The cottage is super comfortable and I would highly recommend. Thank you Lucy. We really enjoyed our holiday

Owner's reply: This is a very generous review which I feel fairly reflects what I offer at Plum Cottage. I have taken on board your suggestions and added extra sun loungers (though clearly six would be unpractical!) along with extra behind bedroom door hanging space. Ventnor is a small seaside town with around thirty pubs restaurants and tea shops and I apologise for the late noise you experienced one evening. Our Police Station is closed at night!, but overall Ventnor is a very safe Island area. Thank you again!

Lovely, spotlessly clean accommodation situated in a quiet central location. We all enjoyed our stay at Plum Cottage and would definitely recommend..

“Lovely house, excellent location!”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2013

We travelled with our 4 children and we were really pleased with Plum Cottage. The house was immaculate and well decorated. We were al little worried out having four children in the house and having a deposit resting on it made us a little jumpy but never-the-less we really enjoyed staying there. It had everything we needed and the beds were really comfy. The location is fab; not to busy and not to quiet plus close to the beach. The hill down to the beach was a calf muscle killer but it wasn't a problem. The only way I would improve the property would be parking, although the car park is really near the convenience of on site car park would make it 100% perfect!
