The chalet is extremely well kitted out with everything you need for your stay.. It is in a quiet location and well located to access all the attractions on the island. Also within walking distance of the Fishbourne ferry. The only downside is that the bed can only be accessed from one side. The Chalet is ideal for a short break.

Perfect for a quiet getaway.. Everything provided, so all you need to bring is clothes.
Lovely hosts greet you on arrival and are on hand if you need anything. They also left us a couple of small bottles of wine and a box of chocolates. Such a thoughtful gift.
Will definitely return.

An absolute hidden gem.. The hosts were fantastic and friendly. The Chalet has everything you need for a short break. It is in a secluded location 2 minutes from a quiet beach, 1 minute from a lovely pub. Access to one of the main roads on the island means that everything is within driving distance. We will stay again.

Cosy, well-equipped place to come back to after a day exploring the Island.. Within walking distance of the beach (beautiful sunsets here) and Quarr Abbey. The garden area in particular was the such a lovely surprise! It is secluded and has four separate seating areas, including a BBQ and chimenea. We brought some fairy lights and enjoyed some beautiful warm evenings BBQing, and drinking cocktails round the fire. Overall a delightful stay, in an incredibly convenient location, with very accommodating hosts.
It would be difficult for Sykes to exceed my expectations of them, they have been really good each time we have used them! The following question re publishing feedback is difficult. The Chalet, for the sake of us who are aware, is so good we wish to keep it a secret but for the sake of the super owners such a place needs to be published and thereby full all the time - a dilemma!
The chalet was ideal for our requirements as we were out and about during the day and back in the evenings.. The cooking facilities were good and the place was very clean. The hosts were away during our stay but we did meet with them on our arrival and kept in touch by email. There were no issues that developed during our stay. They provided a selection of books and dvd's to use.
We are hoping to return there next year for a similar vacation!
The Chalet was the perfect place for our trip to the Isle of Wight, there was everything we could ever need and peace and quiet..
We had a wonderful week at the chalet .. We have booked another week in late summer .we would certainly recommend the chalet to anyone .Tom & Jean are such good hosts x
This was our first visit to The Isle of Wight and we thoroughly enjoyed our week there.. The cottage was located not too far from the ferry port and was so easy to find as directions were spot on. The cabin was compact, very well designed and comfortable for two people. As a holiday cottage it could not have been better. There is a pub two minutes away serving good food. We explored the Island each day and included Osborne House which was so interesting. We look forward to another visit sometime soon.
The Chalet adjacent to ferry terminal and owner's property.. Tom and Jeannie were very welcoming and added a number of 'little extras' to our welcome pack. A most enjoyable stay!
The Chalet was compact and convenient & the owners were very friendly and obliging.. Just right for a quiet week in the Isle of Wight.
Lovely wooden property, with very friendly and helpful owners.. Everything I needed and in a great location. I saw plenty of wildlife in the garden, too, including red squirrels, which was very enjoyable, and it is literally just round the corner from Fishbourne ferry terminal. This was my second visit to this property, and it will definitely not be my last!
Thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island! Traffic can be a bit of a nightmare, avoid rush hour !!!!
It was a charming, lovely property. Perfectly fitted out and the owners were very friendly.
A fantastic little property, owners friendly and welcoming and the location was ideal..
The Chalet was very private with plenty of outside space. We received a very warm welcome from the owners.
We liked that the cottage was very close to the ferry. Excellent pub up the road. Great weather. plenty to see and do. We were made very welcome.
The property was very cosy, quiet relaxing and we had everything we needed. Owners were very helpful and friendly.
Loved the accommodation. Very friendly welcome. Really good location near the ferry and convenient for sight seeing and cycling. Lovely pub just up the road where we had a lovely meal.
The property well located for exploring the Isle of Wight. We were more than pleased with the property and would willingly return.
Hosts were fabulous! The garden was ideal for bird watching - hosts topped up bird seed and nuts for the squirrels free! It was compact and 'bijoux' - but this was a positive! An ideal location for exploring the Isle of Wight.
Lovely hosts, lovely place to stay. Blissful week . Even the weather behaved. Perfect.
The owners were extremely welcoming. There were lots of lovely touches about the place which made it seem so comfortable. We will definitely go back again.
The Chalet is nicely tucked away giving you your own space and privacy. There is an abundance of wildlife in a very serene setting. Considering it is only a small island, there is so much to do on the Isle of Wight. The Chalet is ideal for two people and has been laid out to a very high standard with high end appliances. The owner of the Chalet is available to offer any help and assistance you may require. My wife and I will definitely return to the Chalet, my wife was so comfortable, she did not want to come home. I will certainly be recommending it to anyone that I know plans to stay on the Isle of Wight.
We just wanted a quiet week, in peaceful surroundings so that we could properly relax. Ideal location. A lovely equipped little chalet and we would return happily another time.
Both owners were incredibly accommodating and so happy to help. The chalet was comfortable and peaceful. The Isle of Wight is a fantastic island to escape from city life. I would recommend the holiday to anyone. The wine and chocolates were a very nice touch.
