“Lovely location overlooking the Solent. Husband spent hours fishing. Dog loved it.”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The location of Cedar Croft is sublime overlooking the Solent. There were some spectacular sunsets to be seen. Having no T.v.or WiFi network was great. Joe our dog loved playing on the field outside - could sit on the veranda and fling his ball for him whilst watching the boats, yachts and wind surfers. My husband spent many hours on the beach with the dog fishing. Although he didn't catch much- found out later that it isn't a very good place to fish from. Cedar Croft itself is lovely and cosy, but would imagine it being a tad cramped if you had to utilise the sofa bed to accommodate 5 people. The log burner warms the place up in no time at all, but be aware that you are charged for the logs.
The reasons why only given 4*s was because of the plumbing/drainage issues we experienced in the shower room which we mentioned to Vanessa.
Also the previous tenants had left bags of rubbish outside these were ripped open during the night which we had to bag up and dispose of to stop our dog getting to the spillage.

“Beautiful area, right on the beach, BBQ in the sun, what more could you want.”

Lovely, just came back from a long weekend. The location is super, very picturesque and quiet - it's a short drive to lots of things to do, the Garlic Farm, Monkey and Owl sanctuary are 15 mins away (went to both, excellent), local farm shops for the meat/ wine - very reasonably priced for beginning of the season - would recommend and will most likely go back.

Go for it!

Cabin was great, cosy and very clean but electric cut out on two nights, had a 5 month baby as well couldn't sterilise his bottles as not enough power because of solar panels! The drive to the log cabin was atrocious and hitting underneath of my car! The road is ment for 4x4s!

“An idyllic getaway place”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We needed a quiet retreat to get away from life's hustle and bustle, and this delivered perfectly. The cabin was very clean and well equipped. We will definitely want to stay again and would recommend this to anyone who needs a peaceful rest.

“True bliss, a real find!”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This place truly was unique, and just what we needed, a place to relax and take our minds off work. I knew I wanted a place by the sea and this didn't even break the bank! Sitting on the veranda of an evening playing cards and watching the sun go down.. who needs a tv! Facilities more than adequate and comfortable, and clean. Some quirky looking neighbouring shacks but very peaceful. We turned up early and they didn't mind, thanks for a great stay!
