The cottages are in Monkton Street, Ryde, only four minutes walk from the seafront, eight minutes from the town centre and ideally situated for access to all parts of the island with its wide variety of scenery, sights and activities.
Each cottage is comfortably furnished and fully equipped for self catering with full sized electric cooker, refrigerator, microwave, spin drier, iron and ironing board, electric heaters, 32 inch colour television, duvets and blankets. Electricity is not included but the unit price is low and we do not make a profit from it. You may bring your own linen or we can supply it for a small extra charge. We appreciate no smoking or vaping in the cottages and sorry, no pets.
