Our three bedroom, three bathroom stone cottage was extensively renovated in 2016 to a high specification. It is nestled in a sheltered spot on a quiet road a short walk from Steephill Cove. It comfortably sleeps six adults and maybe a couple of extra children!

The space

This is a great family bolt hole in one of the most beautiful and highly regarded areas on the Island. You can stroll to the beach, along the coastal path or meander into town. Being arranged on one floor, it's ideal for young families and we provide a cot, buggy and high-chair to make life even easier. All mod cons are included and the whole place was recently modernised to the highest standard.

Guest access

You'll have the run of the whole house and garden. We'll give you keys - it's yours to use as your own!

As we have to let the cleaners and gardeners do their stuff, check in is from 4pm and check out at 10am, but please contact us if you have specific needs.

Interaction with guests

We'll leave you alone unless you need us. We'll contact you before you arrive, make sure that you receive keys and contact you to make sure everything was OK after your stay. If you don't need anything, you won't hear from us while you enjoy your holiday, but we will give you our contact details should you have any questions, concerns or needs.

Other things to note

We think we've got most bases covered. We developed this old cottage for us and did everything to a high standard. The floors are solid oak, the kitchen has all Neff appliances, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. Satellite TV and wireless broadband are included. We also provide a cot, a buggy and a high chair free of charge.

Tom's house is everything it's described as and more. It's clean & cosy, warm & welcoming, the kitchen and bathrooms are a delight and all six members of our party who stayed mentioned how comfy the beds are. It's tucked away on a quiet private road yet close enough to the town to be able to walk along the coastal path to all local amenities. You will definitely enjoy your stay! Thanks Tom...

Tom's place is of a high standard, very comfortable and great location. The en suite bathrooms are lovely and so nice to have toiletries provided. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed cooking with local produce every night and ate out at lunchtimes using some well recommended cafes and restaurants provided by Tom's detailed pre visit email. If you come late in the season or out of season it is worth always checking opening times though. Thanks for a great week.

A fab holiday home, with everything you need and more! In particular we found the toddler friendly aspects really handy and Tom did a great job in providing advice about the local area, travel etc. Highly recommended.

Excelant location, short walk from the lovely steephill cove and Ventnor town and beach in easy reach by foot or car . Easy to reach all locations in a quick drive . Compton Bay , Bembridge or the northern end all easily reached . The house is clean , ample sized rooms with good kitchen. The decoration is plain and simple . Lovely walks along the coast make this an ideal base for a week.

Can't recommend Tom and his lovely house enough. It was home from home. Everything you could ask for and more. Lovely clean house with supplies, toiletries etc so you don't have to bring everything including the kitchen sink with you when you pack. Tom gave us lots of information beforehand and was quick to reply with any queries. Lovely area, 5 mins from Steephill Cove with great views and cafes. 15 mins stroll to Ventnor with a lovely beach and numerous pubs and cafes. Recommend Crab & Lobster in Ventnor. Great base for visiting other places.

Married with two young children, I grew up on the Isle of Wight and spent my whole childhood living within a couple of miles of our holiday home. We now live and work in the city, but frequently return to let the children run on the beach and in the woods.

I'm a bit of a tech addict; I work with data and barely leave the internet alone, but I'm starting to rebel and re-establish my early 90's music collection on vinyl!

I travel on business a lot, so when we travel as a family, we look for a bit of a peace and quiet, but won't give up our creature comforts. We spend most of our spare time on the Isle of Wight. We love the beaches, the walks, the open space and the wildlife, plus there's loads to keep the family entertained. We've made it to a few more exotic places too, including safari in Kenya and India, indulgence in Dubai, culture in China and the open road in California. We also enjoy skiing and sailing.
