We stayed at Hill View House in September this year and it was fabulous. On arrival there was a welcome tray with cakes, wine and chocolate - such a lovely thing to come in to and there was also a little milk in the fridge which was useful. The house itself was amazing; so comfortable yet it had the luxury feel we wanted for our holiday and so much space. The kitchen was very well equiped and have a washing machine and dishwasher was great. The house also had an amazing garden. The area was very quiet and beautiful, close to a great restaurant and a little shop that had all of the basics and it was just a few minutes walk. Freshwater Bay has a lovely little beach, mostly pebbles but some sand depending on the time of day and is really lovely and only a 10 minute walk from the house. We had great weather and actually did swim in the sea nearly every day. The only small critisms of the house were there were some cabinets with ornaments in and with a toddler this was tricky to manage - we ended up moving the furniture to block his access. There were also a few spiders in the conservatory that were doing a great job of killing flying insects but it meant we had to clear it every day. Especially with a toddler who puts everything in his mouth. One of the spiders was a false widow but it kept itself to itself! Overall it is an amazing place to take a break and I would highly recommend it.
An Extremly Fabulous House

An excellent house for families, plenty of room, lots of kitchen equipment, very comfortable beds, a very large and safe garden for young children. Definitely would recommend this house.

From the moment we pulled up onto the drive we knew we were going into something special. Having both an elderly mother-in-law, disabled brother-in-law and our 2 young sons with us we needed somewhere with space and privacy for all. Hill View House excelled in all ways for all. From the amount and size of the different rooms to the large garden for the boys. Everything was there that you could ever wish for and more. With a 5 minute drive to the supermarket, a short walk down to the beach and less than 10 minutes to drive to the Needles, Hill View House is just a truly wonderful home and a credit to those that own it.

Where do I Start... The house is absolutly brilliant. There is nothing to fault. Well equiped, safe, very clean.
The house is a short walk from the beach with wonderful views.
Our time at Hillview House was so good we have booked to go back next year 2012.

A large, immaculate, clean, beautifully presented house. The owners were lovely and we were made to feel so welcome

This is one of the best holiday lets we have stayed in - so well eqipped. As commented to the owners, an extra chopping-board would be useful - perhaps this has now been supplied?
We tended to 'live' inthe huge conservatory: one or two of the settees could be inproved on for comfort!
But these are niggling comments - we would happily stay here again.

Left on 11/05/2010 for a stay in September 2010 | The ODF Ramblers
A fine base for a small group of ramblers / birdwatchers plenty of excellent local walks and clifftop viewing points for birds. Very comfortable, clean and spacious accommodation and a large garden, ideal for fine Summer evenings.For a group of older people (us!) it was an ideal quiet location yet within easy reach of shop and pub, but younger people might have found it a little too qiiet and remote from social activities. Definately recommended for those preferring a quiet life (us again). Thanks for a great stay.
