Outstanding holiday cottage!
Accommodation is full of character, with very good facilities, and extremely comfortable and clean. Great location with wonderful views and ideally positioned if you want to just stroll or take more energetic walks. Good connection to bus services, if you don't fancy driving, so you can explore other major attractions on the island effortlessly. The outstanding natural beauty of West Wight and local attractions is engaging but if you just want to chill out this place is excellent.
Lovely accommodation in great location for coastal walks, relaxing and exploring.
The Coach House is beautifully furnished and equipped. It is in a secluded, relaxing location, despite being so close to Alum Bay visitor attraction, and there are superb walks from the doorstep. The shower compartment is very small - difficult even for a slim female to manoeuvre in! Bed extremely comfortable, with luxurious bedding; I would suggest blackout lining for the bedroom curtains, please, for those of us who are light sleepers.
As a long-time and regular user of self-catering properties such as this, I am used to check-in being from 3 pm onwards, but the owner here is unusual in expecting travellers to arrive AT 3 pm (often pretty difficult for people travelling from a distance on holiday). Not having seen a very inconspicuous link to a pdf in just one email months earlier, I arrived at about 5pm - after a long and difficult journey, and having had great trouble finding the property (there is no sign on the approach road, no phone connection, no printed route details, and the postcode only takes you to the main Visitor Attraction area), and the owner was very angry, rude and unprofessional, blaming me for her missing an appointment! This was extremely upsetting and surprising, as I genuinely did not realise she expected me at 3.00. (Indeed I had earlier messaged her that I was on the 4.00 ferry). I would urge the owner in future to double-check that her requirements have been seen by guests during the days shortly before their arrival, as well as providing detailed instructions on how to find the cottage, and not simply to assume that they saw and opened the pdf link. I had received no other reference to this required entry time in ANY communications nearer the booking dates, just emails promoting the HomeAway app (which did not help me with this!). An owner expecting new arrivals to their property on a Friday afternoon should ensure that they (or a stand-in if necessary) are available to greet their guests in a friendly, professional way whenever they are able to arrive.
Great views, lovely little cottage
We had a very relaxing short break at the Hayloft, which had everything we would want for a self-catering cottage. Melody was very helpful with tips on where to visit locally & responded really quickly to our booking request/messages so we managed to sort our trip out quickly just 7 days in advance. West Wight has plenty to do & the Needles attractions and Alum Bay beach are just a 5-10 minute walk away.
Thank you Rowena for leaving your review, hope to see you for another trip down, let me know if there's anything that I can add to the property for your next stay as my cupboards are very well stocked in the house and always happy to add in more kitchen gadgets, toys, books and so on so less to pack for you. If you and Cora would like to have a complimentary clay sculpting session if down for a week at some point let me know.... best wishes
My wife and I had a great week at the Old Hayloft.Superb view of the Needles. And so peacefull.Melody the owner was great and couldn't have been more helpful.If we ever go back to the island we would definitely be looking to stay here again.
One tiny negative was the size of the shower but it was ok.This was far outweighed by the positives. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to add your kind review.
Its a shame the shower is only 70cm square with bi fold door for ease entry, most love the power of the shower, no drizzle of water as are many. But sadly that was the only size that would fit in the ensuite space.with it being a retaining wall between the bedroom and lounge. Maybe one day i will remodel upstairs to give larger ensuite but its a too costly alteration at this time sadly.
Perfect location to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing break.
A lovely welcome from the owner Melody, a very cheerful and informative lady.
The Hayloft is a lovely place to stay, it is clean, comfortable and has everything you could need for your stay.
The location is stunning and within a couple of minutes walk you can be on top of Headon Warren, providing lovely views of the needles and across to Bournemouth, and for those who like walking can go onto Totland and Yarmouth returning via a regular bus service.
Tennyson Down is also only a short walk providing a ridge walk down to freshwater Bay and can also return by bus.
For those who prefer to drive, the roads around this part of the island are good and reasonably quiet giving good access to many parts of the island.
David & Sandra
it was lovely to meet you both and thankyou fro taking the time to leave a review.
I am glad my inside knowledge of the island as a returning home tourist for 27 years before coming home to live again here helped you .
Its become a regular site of extra cars here while guests use the great bus service and enjoy the walks on my doorstep. One couple who stayed two weeks described my grounds here as the most relaxing two weeks stay they had ever had, with the fact they saw and heard nothing but wildlife until hey wandered out the long driveway.
NOT WHAT IT SAY'S ON THE TIN
Very disappointing not what it I expected from the information given.
As you arrive there is a fantastic view of the needles, the owner met us and was slightly abrupt. Once you leave the car park the property is adjacent to the owners, practically outside her backdoor The lovely veranda by the bedroom you are not allowed to use. The property is very long and dark, there are glass doors at either end of the property but only two other windows, one of which is fixed so un able to open and the other a velux window in the roof of the bedroom, however you are not allowed to open this widow ! therefore the property gets very stuffy during the day. The furniture is set up for six people ( armchairs and Large dinning table ) which seemed odd in a two person property. The furniture also looked like a job lot from the charity shop. The property was not very clean, full of cobwebs and actual mould around the shower base. The shower was also so small that I could not wash my hair properly and id you needed to pick something of the floor, well forget it, it was not possible to bend down and pick it up and i am only your average size 12 woman. The bed was so uncomfortable we both dreaded bed time and had the most awful weeks sleep ever. The two electric heaters are set at 17degrees and locked on asking the owner to turn the heating up because we were cold she put it up 1 degree and locked them again. Later we were again cold and so as not to disturb her again we googled how to turn them up and put them up to 20degrees. The next day the owner entered the property without our knowledge or consent and altered the temperature - a gross invasion of privacy- apparently you can not have the temp over 18degrees or the cottage gets damp, so I pity anyone going on a winter break I suggest you take a lot of jumpers because it was cold in September. There are no views from the property at all and I think the implication that there are wonderful views are deceptive there is a large holiday cottage in front of the property blocking your view you can not even see the sea from the garden. The noise from the needles site is loud and easily heard from 10-5 every day and even the view from the car park is spoilt by the cable cars running in front of it. On leaving we left the property clean and tidy but £30 was deducted from our deposit to call in the cleaner to put the bin out so make sure you put the bin out where ever the external bin may be because we never found one.

La playa de arena de Colwell Bay se encuentra a 10 minutos en coche al igual que la playa de arena fina y hermosas olas de Compton Bay. Búsqueda de fósiles es bueno allí y surf y viento surfistas comunes también. También es ideal para un largo paseo ...

Una parada de autobús se encuentra a 5 minutos a pie y va a través de Yarmouth ferry a Newport, donde otros autobuses conectan con todo el acceso en barco a la isla.

Calbourne Water Mill está a unos 15 minutos en coche, pasando Chessell Cerámica. También hay excursiones de pesca y otras excursiones en barco interesantes disponibles en Yarmouth. Muchas atracciones turísticas se encuentran a 40 minutos en coche a través de la costa. Precioso Walks: Sin coche! Desde El Antiguo pajar es posible caminar de un lado de la Isla sobre The Downs, sobre las agujas, al agua dulce a través de monumento Tennyson. O el otro lado de nuestra costa, sobre el laberinto de brezo revestido púrpura de Totland. Usted puede incluso aventurarse hasta el final a Yarmouth si te gusta un ya pocas horas paseo. Las vistas son impresionantes en este largo paseo y yo diría que la mejor que se tenía en la isla! Usted siempre puede optar por coger el autobús de vuelta de estos paseos, después de una comida en un restaurante local o pub!
