Woodpecker Cottage is in a very quiet location, but easily accessible and in a good position for exploring the Isle of Wight. It is very tranquil with a lovely view of the countryside.

A lovely well maintained place to stay. It was away from it all with wonderful scenery and wildlife. The property owners were lovely people, helpful and on hand if you wanted to know anything, but then left you to enjoy your holiday, which was a great balance. We would certainly like to return.

The island was beautiful and the location of the cottage made it ideal for exploring the island. The cottage was well equipped and situated in a fabulous rural location, with superb wildlife and birds. There were lots of great walks from the cottage. A lovely retreat for a couple who just wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of work.

A very pretty spot. The owners were very helpful but not intrusive which is very important. Liked it so much that we will probably book again next year as there is so much to do and we couldn't do it all.

The cottage was lovely - situated in a lovely area close to local places and easy access. The views were stunning with countryside and wildlife, and the whole atmosphere was very welcoming. We definitely would recommend this cottage to friends/family and anyone interested in a stay on the island. We will definitely be returning back soon!

A beautiful barn conversion cottage set in incredibly landscaped farmland. The Cottage is set on a beautiful and quiet part of the island, but really near ferries and the east coast. The perfect point from which to explore.

Woodpecker Cottage is a wonderful place to relax. A great place for a base as it is easy to visit the lovely places around the island. Had a great time.

Lesson 1: turn off your satnav, you're on the Isle of Wight! Welcome: Dawn and Ken met us at the gate, and gave us a thorough guided tour of the facilities, and there's a welcome gift as well. The cottage has only been available since July 2014, so everything was new. Perfect for two people, and as this is the Isle of Wight you are no far from anything, although if you eat out of an evening, you do need to drive or hire a taxi. Facilities: excellent View: fields, trees, animals, there are 3 nature reserves, and Brading Down has wonderful views. We had spectacular weather in September, even managed a swim in the sea off Sandown. One pub lunch after a long walk, and one evening meal in a pub for our wedding anniversary, otherwise we ate at the cottage. Fish and chips from the local caravan park are recommended - but they did shut at 7pm. Hard to say what I didn't like, there really wasn't anything in this category. One tip: once you arrive on the Island, ring ahead for directions, I drove past the cottage 3 times (hopefully the owners have put a sign on the gate now), and I know my way around.
