"What a wonderful place to spend a long weekend! It was the perfect base to explore the island, and a joy to return home each evening. Wonderful views and everything we could want. Thank you."

"We have had a wonderful stay at Anchor Cottage. The cottage was perfect with lovely views. It's really comfortable, and has excellent equipment. The views are great and sometimes we felt we could sit and look at the view all day instead of going out! Thank you so much Vida. We would love to come back soon!"

"A lovely spot for watching passing river traffic and a good base for exploring the island."
By Brian
"We had an amazing time in Anchor Cottage. It was situated just right next to the River Medina, so we could enjoy the view of ships and yachts. The cottage itself was spacious, clean and well equipped. The owner thought about everything, so we spent our time in real comfort. We felt cared after and very welcome. Definitely would stay in Anchor Cottage in the future."
By Henry
"Anchor cottage is fantastically well placed. We walked off the East Cowes (Red Funnel) Ferry and the house was only 5 mins walk away. The views over the estuary of the river Medina were terrific, we loved watching all of the boats going by over the week
The property is fantastically well placed with Waitrose such a short walk away and with the island's bus network being so easy to access from the bus stop outside Waitrose. We will definitely be returning to the Isle of Wight as it’s such a pleasant, relaxing place to stay with lots to do. When we do return we will absolutely look to book into Anchor cottage again as it offered everything we wanted.

"A lovely, clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage in an excellent location. We were given a warm welcome by Mrs Lewis who also made sure our stay was trouble free which was a very nice touch.
Supermarkets are within walking distant and the Chain Ferry is nearby for easy access to West Cowes.
We have no hesitation in saying that we would like to stay again."
By Terry
