Willow Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
A semi detached conversion of an 18th Century barn, this cottage lies in the small hamlet of Yafford, in the south of the lovely Isle of Wight, and makes a superb romantic base. There is character throughout the cottage, with unusual exposed stone walls, wooden flooring and exposed beams, while the actual accommodation is well-equipped, comfortable and set in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse. The bedroom has a 5' double bed and also an option folding single. There is also a small, private garden to the property. Beaches at Atherfield and Ventnor are within easy reach, as is cycling, walking, Blackgang Chine and picturesque Brighstone village.

Yafford is a hamlet at the southern end of the Isle of Wight, which is well known for its watermill, dating from the 18th Century. Yafford makes a great spot for birdwatchers and walkers, and the 'Round the Island' cycle route, on which Yafford is a stop, makes the hamlet popular with cyclists too. For beach bunnies, the sands at Atherfield are a mile away, and Ventnor is close by too, as is the family attraction Blackgang Chine, while the lovely Shanklin Chine and popular resorts of Ryde and Sandown are just over the other side of the Island (easily reached in under an hour). The village of Brighstone is 2 miles away, and Brightone Bay is also just down the road.

The Isle of Wight, with its beaches, unspoiled scenery, rich heritage and over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths is a walker's paradise, or if sailing is your thing, the renowned annual Cowes Week is not to be missed.

Willow Cottage was in a very peaceful location close to a beautiful coastline with excellent walking inland and along coast, close to Tennison trail. It was a well designed/well furnished/well decorated barn conversion and our dog was allowed. the nearest village Brighstone has 2 well stocked general stores and excellent pub with really good food and is on bus route. We enjoyed a very relaxing break and will be re-booking.

The cottage was just what we wanted. Quite large enough for 2, comfortable, well appointed and everything worked, the heating system was very effective. The owners were very pleasant and at pains to ensure that we had all we needed. We would highly recommend this cottage.

A comfortable cottage in a delightful spot. We and our two cavaliers felt very welcome. All equipment was excellent, very clean and in good condition as was the cottage. We enjoyed our stay at Willow Cottage and the Isle of Wight. Thanks to the owners.

Miss Mays

It was the perfect little getaway from city-life with lovely decor and all the amenities you needed. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, offering to help with whatever they could but still giving you space. We would definitely recommend a stay, and would love to go back again.
Mrs Bartlett
August 2013
We had an amazing holiday on the Isle of White. We could not have picked a better location for the cottage as we liked the peace and quiet that it offered, whilst still being near to many of the best attractions. The beaches were fantastic with good swimming and also added interest were the shells and fossils that could be found there.
Mrs Nichols

Quiet, peaceful, clean and plenty of hot water. Second stay here and absolutely love it. Returning next year with our new puppy.
Miss Smith

Accommodation was rural which we wanted as we live close to London, so day to day life is normally very busy. It was fabulous, the host was lovely and we would certainly recommend the cottage.

We found Willow Cottage a haven which gave us a sense of country well-being, we were able to chill and relax immediately. The rooks nesting was a beautiful sight to see from the bedroom window! A lovely break, we would love to return one day soon. Thank you.

The converted barn is located in a quiet country area yet it is close to the coast and within a 20 minute drive of Newport. It's an excellent base from which to explore the Isle of Wight. It was all we needed and very comfortable.
Mrs Hale
April 2011
A cosy cottage in a lovely setting. The owners were very friendly and helpful. A quiet area but never far from amenities. The cottage facilities are very good, stylish conversion, plenty of space for two and ideal if you have a pet.
Mrs Hall
February 2011
The owners were very friendly and helpful. We wanted a peaceful weekend break and that's exactly what we got. The cottage is a wonderful place to stay and although January was not the warmest time to stay, the owner left plenty of heaters and extra blankets. We are already looking into a return visit. We would recommend eating at The Wight Mouse in Chale. Lovely food and good prices. We would also recommend a visit to Carisbrooke Castle - probably the nicest and best maintained castle we have visited.
Mrs Heath
July 2011
We liked the position of the cottage, very peaceful countryside but not too far from a local newsagents and village stores. The owners were very helpful if we had any problems. Will go again.

Particularly liked the Yafford village and walks locally and access to cliff path etc. Property in a pretty situation opposite pond.
August 2014
This is a small well presented and well equipped cottage. Very comfortable bedroom excellent bathroom good kitchen and a pleasant out side space for a drink before supper or for al fresco dinning. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Altogether to be strongly recommended.
November 2012
Living so near the olympic stadium we'd planned for months to get away from the crowds, road closures and hype. This getaway was perfect. A lovely spot, very quiet and isolated, near the sea and clifftop walks. And some very good eating places nearby. A plain but comfortable cottage, perfect for 2 people or a small family. An extra is the little sunny garden at the back. The owner, who is on site, is friendly, welcoming and helpful but also very discreet. We would definitely go there again.
September 2011
Friendly owners with lovely labrador made us feel very welcome. Well-equipped cottage,clean & airey. Peaceful lacation, fab for walking our Westie. `White Horse` @ Whitwell good portions & prices. Tennyson Down an old favourite & Mottistone Manor & grdns a first. Would have been perfect if living room opened out onto garden
August 2011
A good friendly reception from owners with nothing to much trouble. A nice quit area good for walking with plenty of footpaths and very near to the sea
