A lovely cottage in a lovely quiet setting.. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Hope to return in the future. A lovely friendly old retriever to fuss too, lovely.

As it was November the place was lovely and warm all the time, hosts were very friendly and welcoming and explained everything we needed to know, nothing was too much trouble for them, the cottage is in a rural area so it was lovely and quiet and very dark at night if you like views of the night sky then this is great, a five minute drive and you are on the main roads to any area of the island.. .....loved this place and would love to go back in the summer. 5 stars
Mr Holmes, November 2019
Hosts very welcoming,very helpful and very nice,kitty's loft is larger than expected, the photographs don't do it justice.. brilliant location,so quiet and peaceful, enjoyed every minute of our stay even the rain did not spoil anything. Thank you Barbara and Kitty for allowing us to enjoy a part of a very beautiful property in a fantastic location.

The cottage was so comfortable and well equipped and the landlord so welcoming.. It was much more than we expected for the price we paid. It was also very well placed for seeing most of the island. We all felt staying in the cottage added much to the enjoyment of our holiday.
In the listing there's no picture of the bathroom, may be worth adding this as quite small with only shower cubicle, no bath.. The bathroom is also on the ground floor so could be an issue for night time visits! We also felt another hand towel could be provided as only one small one for us both, plus only one loo roll! Probably being picky here but more & larger towels provided in other accommodation and always more loo roll & toiletries. Otherwise a lovely cottage in beautiful setting, well placed for visiting all of the island.
The cottage was very warm, well equipped, clean and comfortable.. The garden sitting area was very pretty and the weather was so brilliant (early September) we were able to eat our breakfast outside in the sunshine every morning and it was very quite and peaceful, as although the cottage is situated on a road there is very little traffic; all we could hear was the soft bleating of sheep in a nearby field and birdsong. The property is situated on the south of the island which is supposed to have its own micro-climate being warmer and sunnier than the rest of of the island and this seemed definitely to be the case, and the tropical gardens at Ventnor, which are well worth a visit, are a testimony to this.
There is a very nice pub in Godshill called 'The Taverners', about 10 minutes drive from the cottage, which is very popular and the food is excellent , using all local produce, but you do need to book early as it is very popular. We also visited the 'Spyglass' in Ventnor which is right on the edge of the sea and sells delicious crab sandwiches; the crab is locally sourced from the island's fishermen. There is plenty of seating outside and inside it is distinctly quirky with loads of character. Another nice pub with a view is 'The Folly' on the Medina River which is very close to Osborne House,. Do visit Osborne House and gardens, it is an amazing place and in recent years Queen Victoria's private beach has been opened up to the public and you can bathe there, not fully clothed as Queen Victoria did (check out her bathing machine), or just relax on a deckchair with an ice-cream.
We have been on the Isle of Wight for day trips, but not for a full week and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we would definitely like to go again and stay at 'Kitty's Loft' and if we are lucky Barbara and Kitty might have a 'cream tea' ready for our arrival as last time!
We would highly recommend this property.. The owners were lovely and very welcoming. Lots of thought has gone into making you feel at home, like milk in the fridge and delicious scones. Excellent welcome pack with information. The property was clean and well maintained. Our kids 6, 4 and 1 absolutely loved staying there, particularly playing with the dogs, and want to return next year! Thanks for such a wonderful week.
It was a fantastic cottage in an a beautiful location, absolutely lovely..
Wonderful hosts with a lovely cream tea on arrival.. Always on hand for anything you needed. Very peaceful and very comfortable.
The peace and quite :-)
Beautiful, fantastically well equipped property and garden.. Lovely quiet location and easy access to most places on the island. Well stocked shop short drive away as well as lovely pubs. very pleasant hosts.
Barbara & Kit were the perfect hosts, the location was perfect for us, facilities for a child and baby were fantastic, we all had a most enjoyable stay and will likely be back..
No, happy with everything
no complaints, owners we4re very helpful, friendly and made sure our stay was a perfect
Great location and owners are very friendly.. I only wish they had a dishwasher or washing machine instead of a freezer which we didn't use at all. Overall a very pleasant stay.
A wonderful, peaceful cottage in beautiful surroundings.

A wonderfully located barn conversion in a tranquil setting only 10- 20mins drive to all major attractions.. Hospitality was outstanding and this was by far the best equipped self catering accommodation we have experienced. Would highly recommend.

We wanted a quiet location in the heart of the Isle of Wight with good hosts! This is exactly what we got. The owners were wonderful and caring hosts and their pets were also very loving and welcoming. WE COULD NOT RECOMMEND KITTY'S LOFT MORE!
My wife and I stayed at Kitty's Loft for a week at the end of September 2014. Kitty's Loft is situated in lovely countryside, yet within easy reach of villages and shops. The owners, Barbara and Kit were very welcoming and left us a lovely cream tea for our arrival.
Kitty's Loft has everything you could need in a holiday cottage, at any time of year. The kitchen had everything you could need if you wanted to cater for yourself, and all fixtures, fittings, linen etc were of high quality and spotlessly clean.
We hope to return again.
A lovely place to stay, it was very peaceful and relaxing.

The property was excellent would recommend to anyone else.
We stayed at Kitty's Loft for a week before moving into our new home on the island. It is well equiped and beautifully furnished with lots of extra little touches that you wouldn't usually expect in a holiday let. It's very comfortable - especially the beds - and the location is blissfully peaceful and quiet while still allowing easy access to all areas of the island. We were only sorry that we were not staying longer.
The property was excellent & would recommend to anyone else..
Our stay began with a very warm welcome from our host her lovely dogs. The cottage is beautifully furnished and is more a home than a holiday let. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with quality appliances, china and glassware. The whole cottage is delightfully decorated throughout and the beds are just so comfortable! The perfect place for a relaxing vacation at any time of year and ideally situated for exploring the island.
