Many thanks for a wonderfully presented cottage. We've been to a few lighthouse cottages and they are all splendid but this has been the best prepared and nicest. Many, many thanks. GH, Hampshire

As everyone has said a great place to stay. The tour of the lighthouse was great, as well as a lovely day at Osborne House. The Needles is also worth a visit. The Nicholsons, Derbyshire.

We've been to some wonderful places. St Catherine's Oratory was well worth the walk, views were amazing. The Needles boat ride from Allum Bay is a must. Osborne House and Carisbrooke castle were both good days out. IOW steam railway and monkey haven were enjoyed by all the family. The walk up to the Buddle Inn is worth the effort, fine ales and good food. Niton Post Office cream teas are the best and of course a visit up to the lighthouse, to learn some of the stories about the lighthouse were wonderful. A wonderful week had by all. LH, Stourbridge

We have found the best place on earth, the whole experience of staying at St Catherine's Lighthouse was wonderful. From the moment we opened our door to this rather spacious cottage we had a wonderful time. The welcome pack had everything we needed and more including the lovely flowers. The pace was warm, clean and cosy. Thank you to everyone concerned. SB, Herfordshire

A lovely week for all. Enjoyed the chair left at the Needles, the Buddle pub is a must. Ventnor beach - lovely but slightly shingly, Shanklin more sandy. Owl and Falconry centre worth a visit too - all in a ll a wonderful week. The Cassidy's, Berkshire
27 July 2012
A lovely weeks holiday with the best weather ever. Good beach at St Helen's, well worth the walk. Lovely food at the New Inn, Shalfleet, Taverners - Godshill, Spyglass - Ventnor and the George Hotel - Yarmouth. Well worth the ten minute walk up the hill to the Biddle - great chilli! We spent a good day at Osborne House, all in all a wonderful break. The Butler's, Hampshire
