5/5 Excellent

A lovely property
We had a lovely stay at this property. Wish we could have stayed longer!

5/5 Excellent

A short family getaway
We had the most lovely time in Ryde having all missed our birthdays and holidays abroad through lockdown. We chose the cottage because of the outside space and it was just right. The inside was a bonus, comfortable and well appointed. It was all lovely and clean and we couldn’t ask for more. I’ve recommended it to friends who have now booked in a few weeks!

5/5 Excellent

A real treat!
We loved staying at Gwydyr House. It's beautiful and spacious. Perfect for a family summer break. This was our first trip to the Isle of Wight and we were very lucky with some scorching hot weather. The house was perfect for us to relax in for a few days. Very well kitted out and a very handy location for Ryde and the rest of the island!

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely wonderful thank you!
I had a wonderful time at this fantastic house! The accommodation was everything I wished for and more. Spotlessly clean inside and beautifully decorated. Welcoming pint of milk in the fridge, and crumpets and jam for breakfast. Literally everything had been thought of and considered. My first holiday as a singleton, and I really felt I was being looked after. Came for the annual scooter rally, booked at the last minute on a bit of a whim, and I really felt so lucky when I arrived. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect house!
Beautifully decorated & equipped. Really comfortable house to stay in. Easy walk to Ryde but also plenty of street parking in the town. Highly recommend
