"Exactly as described, this is a comfortable clean cottage with good quality towels and bedding. The kitchen is well equipped with microwave and washing machine. It's in a very quiet rural location, easy to find and the resident pigs and kittens are very entertaining. Very good wifi and television. We found it an excellent base to go anywhere on the island by car, and had a very good meal at the New Inn, a few miles away in the direction of Newport. "
