Little Thatch is a first class holiday cottage. It was very welcoming with a good information folder on hand. It was very clean and well maintained. The cottage was very well equipped, above and beyond the basics, and everything was of good quality.

by Mr Howard on June 7th 2015

Liked the location, the peace and quiet, and the good sized garden. I picked this cottage because of the downstairs bedroom and downstairs walk in shower room for my parents who can't manage stairs very well.

by Mrs Ray on April 12th 2015

One of the best cottages we have ever had, the cottage was well equipped and central for all venues, we would highly recommend it.

As well as "Little Thatch" being a delight to holiday in, we were impressed by the "little extras" the owners had provided for the children. Two baby boomer's and three children of the noughties had a wonderful week.

by Mrs Thorpe on June 15th 2014

We loved the house and the garden and there was enough room for 2 families.The location was perfect.We had excellent weather but we all felt that if it had rained there was enough space and things to do in the house and garden. Games and books were all there for our use . The house was well stocked with all modern comforts. After a day on the beach or out and about we all looked forward to returning to the house and sitting in the garden.

by Mrs McAnally on September 16th 2013

Lovely cottage in a peaceful village. The property would be ideal for a family with two bedrooms upstairs and one down. Garden was very private and well equipped, particularly for kids. Would highly recommend the property for a holiday on the Isle of Wight.

by Mr Williams on September 13th 2013

Excellent, simply the best, everything it says in the brochure. Very highly recommended.

by Mrs Killick on August 26th 2013

Lovely house with a great garden for the kids. Lots of things for them to do and they loved the treehouse in the garden. Very well equipped.

Great holiday home for all ages by Pam K on August 25th 2013

We were a family of Grandparents, parents and two boys ages 7 & 5. We loved the house and the garden. We were blessed with great weather and the garden was used a lot. The boys - and their cousins when they joined us loved the tree house and all the games in the summer house. The house is very well equipped and was lovely and clean. It was a nice touch to leave a bottle of Little Thatch wine for us and we appreciated the milk too. The location of the downstairs bedroom is ideal for grandparents as it's so far away from the rest of the house and the shower room is right next door. It is a little creaky as you would expect in such an old house so you do tend to hear the floor boards creaking a bit. As other people have commented in the visitors book, it isn't really suitable for 8 people - very comfortable for 6 - not only is no bedding provided for the sofa bed there wouldn't be enough comfortable seating in the sitting room That said we had a fantastic stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Plenty of good eating places close by and fabulous beaches too.

by Mr Goldson on October 21st 2012

Everything about the property was absolutely first rate. We would have no hesitation in giving it our highest recommendation to all our friends and family.

by Mr Akerman on September 17th 2012

The Isle of Wight - it's a brilliant place for a holiday. Shorwell is a lovely base and Little Thatch is a delightful cottage. There was NOTHING that disappointed in any way.

by Mrs Carr on September 1st 2012

Good location, lots of places to visit within 15-30 minute drive. Well-equipped cottage, particularly the games and summerhouse.

Wer all had a great time by Mr Bear on August 23rd 2011

Excellent facilities - children well provided for - including their own treasure trail.

by Mr Noble on August 10th 2011

The cottage had everything we needed, including a great play area for our two year old!

by Mrs Bale on July 6th 2011

Fantastic attention to detail ie garden activities, use of numerous toys, plenty of garden furniture, even milk and a bottle of wine on arrival. A superb holiday home.

by Mrs Lloyd on June 27th 2011

The Little Thatch was very well appointed. With a lovely garden and summerhouse. I liked the welcome bottle of wine and milk too - nothing like a cup of tea on arrival. Toys and games were very nice for the children. A well designed guide book for the cottage including a treasure hunt was thoughtful.

by Mr Shaw on June 15th 2011

We loved everything about the property. It gave us a central base for the Isle of Wight. It had tremendous facilities and was well equipped. throughout. in the future ,would definately like to return to little thatch.

by Mr Edmonds on June 7th 2011

A very well presented property with all amenities. Children enjoyed the "Treasure Hunt" prepared by the owners.
