    A lovely relaxing holiday in a clean, comfortable cottage on a beautiful island. The Galley is in a quiet peaceful spot, the owners are really pleasant people and we would not hesitate in returning.

    Well presented smart comfortable cottage at a quiet location convenient for most of the island's most popular attractions and the resorts of Sandown & Shanklin. Several major supermarkets are only minutes away (by car) but the cottage is in a peaceful setting and ideal for relaxation. Owners live adjacent and unobtrusively to the property and could not be more welcoming or helpful.

    A fantastic little cottage in a peaceful rural location. Apse Heath may seem like an odd place for a cottage, but it's only 5 mins from the lovely beaches at Sandown and Shanklin, and only 25 mins from the even better beach at Ryde. Added to which is the peace an tranquility of the setting, yet there's a large Aldi and Morrisons just a few minutes down the road if you need to go our for supplies. The cottage is clean and tidy and just right for 2 people, and the owners (Bill and Pat) are so friendly and always make time for a chat and to make sure everythings ok. We'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

    We had a great holiday at the Galley with absolutely no complaints. The bungalow was very spacious for a one bedroom place. Pat and Bill were next door for help and information and the most hospitable people we have ever stayed with. Extremely dog friendly,with beautiful dogs of their own. The Isle of Wight had lovely beaches, many scenic walks. Lots of dog friendly pubs to eat. We would love to return.

    This has been one of the best self cattering accomodations that we have had. In all ways, location, friendliness, helpfulness and if you haven't got the idea by now, I would highly recommend the Galley and its owners.
