Is a Very neat and tidy place to stay. Great little cottage for the family and was well kept. Lots of little things to do with the kids and not far from any of the sites and activities! Would definitely visit again!

Stayed for a 3 night visit & lovely location with over looking paddocks and very quiet. Cottages where clean with fresh linen only negative is that they lack a little maintenance. The pool also was not in operation nor was the family restaurant (we where advise of this before we booked)

This place has some great bones!! The cabins are modern and spacious. It has an outdoor pool and bbq area with a kids playground. The grounds are well maintained and it's close enough to town to walk.

We recently stayed using a Groupon voucher and it was wonderful value. Wish we could've stayed longer! Quiet and peaceful grounds yet so conveniently located near Cowes town centre. The cottages are spacious and well equipped. Toilet separate to bathroom, washing machine, oven, quality furnishings and linens. Much more than a cabin at a van park! Unfortunately our stay was...

We stayed at the cottage for one night after having bought a Groupon voucher. We weren't disappointed at all. The place was spacious, and comfortable. Richard was particularly helpful. Even before we traveled to Philip island, he had discussed various tourist attractions over the phone. On arrival he also gave us vouchers for use at the chocolate factory and local...
