The garden is just brilliant and everything inside has been thought of. Your communication and ease of booking was superb, …
Thank you for an amazing week of wonderful memories”
“… we had a lovely week, the cottage was perfect.”
"Just returned from our third visit to Chestnut Mews. Once again we've had a marvellous stay. Clematis Cottage is superbly equipped, spacious and with an enclosed, private garden. The location is quiet yet just a short walk to the Old Village in one direction (with restaurants, shops etc) and Rylstone Gardens and the beach in the other. This will be our first choice of accommodation when we return to the Isle of Wight."
We have just returned from a week at honeysuckle cottage. It is in a fantastic location just a short walk into Shanklin or down to Fisherman’s cottage on the sea front. The best part of this cottage is the garden which has a lovely play area, a couple of small play houses and lots of toys which our girls (5 and 3 years old) absolutely loved. They didn’t want to go out most days and could have happily spent the whole holiday playing in the garden. This meant lots of time for us relaxing on the deck overlooking the garden. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. I would definitely recommend it for anyone with young children.
This is the second visit to Chestnut Mews- we hired cottages Honeysuckle and Jasmine -which share a beautiful large garden- for family and friends for a special birthday. We were all delighted with the accommodation which is modern, clean, light and airy and well equipped. The Garden and decking areas are perfect for relaxing or watching the children play in complete safety in the wooden houses and with numerous garden toys. The location is brilliant too- just a few minutes walk from Shanklin centre and a bit further to the beach. Next to a large park and Ryland Gardens which has crazy golf and tea rooms. The owners are very efficient and friendly and quickly arrange booking and return of deposits etc. We have loved both of our holidays here and would highly recommend this great accommodation.
"We had an absolutely wonderful week thank you. Just as good as we remembered. We’ll be back!"
"We had a lovely time at Honeysuckle cottage, the kids loved the garden and all the toys, I think they would have been quite happy just playing in there all week! There was so much to see and do on the island that we didn't manage it all in a week so I am sure we will return and hopefully stay at Honeysuckle cottage again."
“We have been coming to Chestnut Mews for years and every year the cottages are fantastic. Have everything you need and more and are spotlessly clean. Perfect base for everything in Shanklin. Will be returning next year.”
“We all had a very enjoyable time at the cottages. Our friends also were as delighted with the accommodation and location as we were. I'm sure we will be back again in the future.”
“Thank you for an absolutely wonderful stay. We had a fabulous time and will definitely return. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.”
“…. we all loved the house and we had a lovely time on the Isle. ….”
“We had a great time at Honeysuckle and will definitely be back next time we are on the IoW. The kids enjoyed playing the garden and made great friends with the other families.”
“We’ve had a fantastic stay in your lovely house. Everything has been so comfortable and the boys have loved the garden. ….”
Hi. It was a lovely house to spend our holiday in thank you.
Perfect holiday cottage in Shanklin. We've stayed here a few times and in both the Honeysuckle and Jasmine cottages. The cottages are spacious and bright with everything you need and always absolutely spotless.
There is a great garden for the kids to run around in, with playhouses & slides etc ...
The old town is a few minutes walk away and the beach and the chine are also just a short walk.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else ...
Thank you for an amazing week in your lovely holiday home, everything was just perfect! So much room for us to spread out which was great ….
Thanks again and we definitely hope to return in the future.
We had a great time at the cottages, …
We had a great week!
We really enjoyed our stay at Jasmine Cottage this month and if possible we'd like to book a …. for next year. ….
Just arrived back from excellent family holiday on the Isle of Wight. Chestnut Mews provided the perfect accommodation for 4 generations to enjoy all the Island has to offer. The best accommodation we have had since first visiting in the 1970s - in particular very good for grandson who loved the garden and all the toys. Just a short walk from the Chine and the old town and easy access to the beach and sea front. Highlights: Keats (in old town - fantastic food and service), Osbourne House (never ceases to amaze), Mottistone Gardens (simply magical) , Buddle Inn (Niton) and Sun Inn Hulverston. Already looking forward to returning next year!
"Had another fantastic stay at Chestnut Mews, our second year running. We stayed in Honeysuckle cottage and it had everything you could possibly need for a perfect self catering cottage. Lovely and clean and wonderful extras like soap, cling film and other little bits you just don’t find in other places. Lovey location for walking to the beach and old Shanklin town. We all particularly love The Happy Haddock and my 6 year old is now a little in love with Jurassic Jim (a must see shop). The children love all the play equipment in the garden and had a lovely time playing with the children next door. All in all a wonderful home from home holiday cottage in a wonderful setting and Peter and Mandy couldn’t be more helpful. We will be returning next year."
We really enjoyed our stay at Jasmine cottage and felt like we only scratched the surface with our exploration of the I.O.W.
Thank you for making us feel so welcome …. .
Thank you again so much we really had a wonderful time …. .
Very much hope to stay with you again.
Thank you again for a wonderful stay, none of us wanted to go home. ….. We really had the best time and the house was as lovely and clean as ever. ….
We are hopefully set to return next year so will send booking forms as soon as possible. ….
Many thanks again for the wonderful service you continue to provide. We love our holidays at Chestnut Mews.
We had a lovely time visiting the many beaches, attractions and eateries all made even more enjoyable by the excellent accommodation which provided the perfect base for the week- we will definately be returning !

"Lovely house, with wonderful fully stocked garden for children to play in. Everything you may need is there including barbecue, high chair, games etc. Great location walking distance to Old Village Shanklin for very good takeaway food and great tea rooms. Can walk to beach but may need to take lift back as very steep hill. We have visited last two years with our grandchildren who loved it."
This was our first family holiday to Clematis cottage and it didn't disappoint. The cottage was perfectly equipped for our 18 month old son and was extremely clean. The cottage is within easy walking distance to the beach (either via steps or path) and there's a kids playground nearby too. We found the cottage to be very peaceful which is also a bonus when travelling away with children. We can highly recommend this as a perfect place to stay when looking for accommodation on the beautiful Isle of Wight

.... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Jasmine Cottage and I am sure we shall re-book in the future. …
We very much enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Mews, thank you.
Just a quick note to say thanks for a wonderful week in Clematis cottage. We had a fabulous time & the cottage was really well equipped. We also couldn’t have had better weather (or better football results!)
What a lovely time we had on the IOW, and the weather was incredible. ….
Thank you for a lovely stay! Your cottages and setting are beautiful! Will definitely stay again when we return.
We have stayed in Jasmine Cottage at least 3 times and everytime have had an amazing week. We hardly need to bring anything for the kids as there is a huge garden with lots of toys. The kitchen is well equipped and the location is great for lots of activities within the Island.
We had a very nice time at Clematis cottage. Thank you. We are checking to see availability of this for next year ....
Another great week in Jasmine Cottage. Our kids love the garden and the spacious house. The location is ideal - close to Shanklin Old Village and its eateries, and just over a five-minute walk to the beach, but also quiet in a traffic-free cul-de-sac with country walks on the doorstep. If you're lucky you'll see the red squirrel in the garden. The house is always clean with everything we need. A really comfortable base after days out exploring the island.
"This was our third stay at Clematis cottage and definitely won't be the last. The cottage is very spacious and as ever spotlessly clean. Within easy walking distance of the old village and beach (though on this occasion we drove as it was Winter!) Good WiFi as well."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Good provisions in house, close walking distance to some nice pubs and the beach for those days you do not wish to drive any where but also easy enough to head out for adventures outside of town as well. Would definitely consider again if we return to Isle of Wight.
We had an very enjoyable stay at Jasmine Cottage, the grandchildren especially liked the garden play equipment which gave then hours of enjoyment. Seeing red squirrels in the garden was very special. We found that the cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed, which made our stay very relaxing and most enjoyable.
"This was a lovely cottage at a peaceful and scenic end of Shanklin. The owners really put time and effort in to creating a lovely environment and we would happily recommend Chestnut Mews to anyone. Thank you Peter and Mandy"
This is the third time I have stayed at these properties with my family. They are of an excellent standard. They are clean, beautifully located and of a very high standard. I have no problems in highly recommending them.
A perfect family friendly cottage, set in the perfect location for the beach.
We have been coming to the cottages now for 5yrs and over the years stayed in all 3 cottages. We have a fantastic holiday every year and the cottages are stunning, they are clean, homely and have everything you need for your stay and more. You feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. In a great location so can walk to everywhere you need to in Shanklin, 5 minute walk to the Old Village and Chine. Just perfect, another fantastic holiday and can't wait till next year.
This was a lovely cottage at a peaceful and scenic end of Shanklin. The owners really put time and effort in to creating a lovely environment and we would happily recommend Chestnut Mews to anyone. Thank you Peter and Mandy.
We (grandmother, parents and boys aged 7 and 5) have just returned from a lovely stay in Chestnut Mews. We chose Honeysuckle Cottage as having access to the shared garden, our children loved playing with the kids next door. It was easy to book and pay via email / bank transfer. The cottage is in a wonderful location, 10ins max walk via steps to the quiet end of Shanklin beach, 5 mins to old village and 10 minutes to new part. Several supermarkets in Shanklin, could walk to co-op or drive to large Morrisons. Easy to walk to the village for dinner and perhaps visit the chine when it's lit up for the evening, a magical experience only 5 minutes saunter from the doorstep. The cottage is really well equipped with all you could need, such as coffee machine, slow cooker, barbeque, cot, high chair, potty and even lego. It was great to put a roast in the slow cooker and spend the day at Osborne House etc. to return to a cooked dinner. Everything is very clean, the kitchen and bathroom are recently renovated and there is plenty of hot water. There is a washing machine and dishwasher to take the stress out of your day. There are 3 toilets, we found this a big plus compared to many other cottages on the island which may have looked quainter but did not offer the same facilities or location. The communication prior to, during and after our stay was irreproachable. We will be returning and would not hesitate to recommend to others. Thanks to Peter and Mandy for a lovely stay.
Our extended family (3 year-old, parents and grandparents) stayed in Honeysuckle Cottage. We found it comfortable, really well equipped and perfectly located for both the beach at Shanklin and the village. The large shared garden with loads of play equipment was a real hit. On the days when the sun shone, the sandy beach was perfect for small children and it was an easy stroll to get there past Shanklin Chine. Particular hits for us included the pretty Steephill Cove close to Ventnor, the IOW Steam Railway and the model village at Godshill. All easily accessible from our base. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return.
All I can say is Fantastic... From Start to Finish Peter and Mandy where very helpful answering questions etc before we booked. The booking process was very straight forward, and Peter and Mandy send us lots of local information regarding the local shops the week before travel
Our Stay at Clematis Cottage was perfect. The house has its own garden with lots outside toys and even its own playhouse. The house itself is very well equipped and has all things covered and the welcome pack and bottle of Bubbly was a lovely touch. The rooms are all very comfy and the kids even slept pass 6.30 which is a bonus on holiday.
The location is lovely too up a quiet private road but only 5-10 min walk in to the main high street with lots of little shops, cafes and Pubs. The Chine is only 10mins down the road, which is lovely if you go in the evening as its all lit up. Also along the road is the steps to the beach (can be hard work with little ones as there is a lots to go down)
The location was fantastic to get to all the major Attractions on the island and is great base. We are hoping to return.
Clear home from home. Peter and Mandy have genuinely thought of everything! Especially for children, stair gates fitted and bed guard provided, lots of toys and a great outdoor play area! Couldn't ask for more. Great location, 10 minute walk to town and beach. We will definitely be back!!
Our second stay at Clematis Cottage, and I can honestly say that it is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Very clean, well equipped and maintained. Perfect base for our family holiday. Highly recommend.
“EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY.”
If you are considering self catering holiday accommodation on the Isle of Wight, then look no further than Chestnut Mews. The booking process was simple and efficient, the cottage was first class in every way, so comfortable and very well appointed and the welcome pack we were greeted with on arrival was more than sufficient. The location is ideal, just outside of the old Village, private and peaceful and well situated for travel around the beautiful Island. We could not fault it. Many thanks to Peter and Mandy for a very enjoyable holiday.
