This detached cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

The Coach House is a detached cottage in a wonderful location with stunning sea views, in the village of Chale on the south of the Isle of Wight. The cottage has two bedrooms which can be offered either as super king-size doubles or as twins, a bathroom, a kitchen with dining area and woodburning stove, and a first floor sitting room with open fire and wonderful views towards The Needles. Outside is off road parking for two cars, along with an enclosed front garden with furniture and BBQ.

The Coach House has coastal and downland walks from the doorstep, and makes a superb base for touring this picturesque holiday destination.


Isle of Wight hospitality at it's best
A wonderful stay as always at the Coach House. A comfortable, spacious and well equipped house with fantastic views in beautiful surroundings. This was our 5th year staying at this location and we have never encountered any negative issues of any concern. There is a slight problem with damp on one wall this year that did not detract from the quality of our stay. The owners have repairs to this wall in hand. The WiFi has always worked and we have only seen the dog from the lounge window in the owner's garden. We have not experienced the issues others have raised and the comments in the Coach House visitor's book are all very positive. We would definitely recommend this property to others and have already booked our return visit for September next year.

Don?t stay here
Mis-sold as ?Covid clean? 5* accommodation. This is not 5* accommodation and is very definitely not Covid clean. As per prior review, the property has not been cleaned or maintained. The bathroom is a health-hazard with black mouldy grout in the shower, prior residents hairs, and old tooth brush, a rusty radiator. The list goes on. The kitchen is just revolting. The oven is greasy and the door has clearly not been cleaned for a long while. The bread bin contained crumbs as did the cutlery drawer. There is no internet, it doesn?t work! The property does not allow dogs, however the owner's dog twice used the garden as a toilet and came into the house when the back door was open. We booked this through Sykes cottages who were totally unhelpful despite us phoning and complaining within an hour of arriving and sending photographic evidence of the problems (of which there are too many to mention here). Do not stay here, do not book this cottage and don't expect Sykes to do anything to remediate any concerns/problems.

Horrific Health and Safety Concerns, Dirty.
The property had not been fully re-cleaned following lockdown it was dirty. Dust was visible, rusting on the radiator, chipped furniture, threadbare carpet. My poor 5 year old daughter had bites from the bedding not fresh.

A fabulous unique property with stunning views and sunsets over the Needles. We loved the comfy beds, hot powerful shower, open fires in the evening, & BBQ-ing in the garden. The perfect base to explore the West of the Isle of Wight.

Wonderfully comfortable.
We had a wonderful week in the Coach House. The views from the lounge are stunning and the beds are exceedingly comfortable. Minor issues included no lock on the bathroom door and bath mats are not provided but that was easily sorted. If you have even minor mobility problems take care when walking from the parking area to the house after dark as the outside light is poor. The entrance gates also require some negotiation if you are short and have the afore mentioned mobility problems. If you have children who are scared of dogs, the owners' dogs bark a lot but create no problems as they are kept on the other side of the fence. We would love to go back.
