Signal Point:“Signal Point was an absolute delight! From the fabulously restored Victorian house to the electric showers and large tub bath. Walks along the coastal path and proximity to Ventnor were fabulous. Our excursion into the Botanical Gardens reflected an incredible array of Southern hemisphere gardens and glorious aloes. Even in winter this was a wonderful place to spend a couple of days. Well worth it!” – Juliet
“This cottage is in the most stunning, idyllic setting and it was absolutely magical to be able to walk freely through the gardens both day and night. The views from upstairs are breath-taking. The cottage itself has great character. The whole trip was like the most relaxing step back in time and we loved it!” – Sophie February 2020The Cabin:“Such a beautiful place. The cabin was lovely and so peaceful and we had some great walks recommended to us by the cafe staff. Great location to see some great sea views and the gardens and such friendly hosts.” – Laura February 2020“We absolutely loved the cabin and wished we were staying for longer. It was lovely and peaceful with beautiful views. The cabin itself is lovely and cosy, a perfect retreat! It is brilliant value for money on its own but even more so with the added bonus of the free access to the botanic gardens. We would definitely stay again if/when we return to the Isle of Wight.” Michelle September 2019The Potting Shed:“The tiny cabin was the perfect getaway in search for peace and relaxation away from city burden. Accommodation was clean, warm and cosy as expected. Cherry on the cake, it’s only 10min away from Steephill Cove.” – Emilie April 2019
“A delightful little gem of a place. Peaceful and very secluded. Simple and basic amenities but adequate for our needs. Being surrounded by Echiums made it feel tropical! Sightings of a barn owl and red squirrel made it all the more special.” – Rosie April 2019Greenhouse Cabin:“I appreciated my stay here, tucked away in the little cabin, surrounded by greenery. The living space is obviously compact, but well equipped (fridge, hob, oven, sink, plenty of crockery and utensils etc). I found my stay very peaceful – and the stars beautifully clear at night thanks to the lack of surrounding light pollution. Free entry to the mightily impressive botanic gardens themselves was obviously a real bonus, too.” – Nicholas February 2020“The Greenhouse Cabin is really comfortable and stylish inside – perfect for one person. I really enjoyed staying amongst the tropical plants of the botanical gardens with views of the sea.” – Charles March 2020
