A lovely cottage - but dirty and not for tall people!
Had a lovely week at this cottage. It's perfectly located just a 3/4 minute drive from Yarmouth, and not much further to Colwell Bay and the Needles. The cottage itself is a beautiful 500 year old building. However, if you're over 5'9" tall, be warned! There are low beams in lots of places and you'll spend your whole holiday stooped over to avoid them. We had quite a few instances where the two tall people in our party had to take a sit down after cracking their heads. Prepare to stoop! It's no reflection on the cottage - that's just the way they built them all those years ago, but it's worth bearing in mind. We also found the cottage to be quite dirty. We moved the rug in the living room as it was a trip hazard for our baby, and we had to get a dustpan out to clean up the dust and dirt that was under it. We also found the oven to be filthy, so much so that it set the smoke alarms off every time we used it. This was raised with the owner who said they'd have it cleaned, so hopefully it won't be a future problem. We also had a problem with the owner's dogs poo'ing in our garden. We had two dogs of our own who were always on leads and we cleaned up each time. However we did often come out to see more, which wasn't nice. This was also raised with the owner who cleaned it up once, but it was still a bit of an issue across the holiday. Overall though, it's a lovely place to stay. The garden is a great size, the BBQ area is lovely on a warm summer evening, and the local area is so peaceful and quiet.

Very clean and well equipped property. Beautifully situated and would definitely stay there again if holidaying on the island.

Wonderful holiday at Hill Cottage
Set in beautiful countryside and a lovely walk to the beach. Really liked the house and garden. It was ideally suited for attractions and restaurants. We found the IOW dog friendly.

The family from the riding stables were friendly and welcoming. The garden was a lovely space to sit in, and with dogs was very good and secure. We will definitely go back in 2017.
Mrs Uncle

An amazing place to stay. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful and couldn't have made us feel more welcome, including our dog who had the time of her life. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone.
