Feels like I've looked at the same websites 3 times over.

Any recommendations on a self-catering cottage / lodge on the Isle of Wight would be really appreciated! There are 2 of us plus toddler, and my parents are thinking of visiting for a couple of days too.

we stayed here in March.

Was nice. although we did have a few issues with the hot water which were pretty speedily resolved! - I hope they've fixed it properly by now!

Make sure you go to amazon world if its your kind of thing. My DDs loved it!

that one does seem more expensive than the others, i think was the only thing putting us off.

we stayed in badgers sett!
Very spacious, clean and warm etc.
Make sure they've fixed the hot water!! We ended up having the keys to another apartment as there wasn't enough hot water to fill the bath for my DDs!

Swimming pool was a little on the cold side for the toddlers, but nice.

Take some sharp knives if you intend to cook - they do have them there - but they wouldn't cut my onions grin otherwise they are very well stocked!

Otherwise highly recommended.
