    A wonderful place for a family holiday. The owner was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The house and grounds were amazing and we all had a thoroughly good time.

    Excellent house and grounds. Very comfortable and well equipped. Lots to do on the island. The whole family had a brilliant time

    I am not sure if I want to share my views as I don't want anyone else to know just how great this place is. The location, levels of comfort, views as well as the overall 'zen' of Bodwen are all absolutely outstanding. All the rooms offer views of the immaculately groomed grounds or the coastline and the whole place is so calming. The owner (Peter) is an absolute star. He was always around to help and offer information on the house and island itself. We managed to get three guided tours of the grounds over the weekend !!!! I should have mentioned the private beach too, but I did say I wasn't going to go overboard with this review :)



    out of 10

    A wonderful property for a multi-generational get away. The house has been refurbished beautifully and the owners could not be more friendly or accommodating. The house is very close to the Fishbone ferry and nothing is too far away on the Isle of Wight. The best feature probably has to be the private beach and large gardens - hours of entertainment and relaxation for everyone.
