“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

GOLDENFORT -Freshwater Isle Of Wight was simply ideal for our Family 4 adults and 2 dogs
Three en suite bedrooms on the ground floor -living room /diningroom/ kitchen and door to balcony on the second floor and 3rd floor a roof garden!!
The kitchen had all mod cons and more-It was a real pleasure to stay there
The fort was surrounded by a common (National Trust) with miles of walks -all the paths kept clear --doggy heaven!!

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at The Sergeants Quarters for 3 nights at the beginning of April. On arrival we were met by Phil who gave us a warm welcome and a good explanation of the place.
There are 3 bedrooms-all en suite and downstairs. (All wet rooms) Master bedroom with a bath. (No TV's in bedrooms but that was not a problem for us. Maybe my teenage boys would have liked a TV in the bedroom but not a big deal)
The living room/kitchen are upstairs, open planned and very, very spacious. So modern, has everything you need and clean. One toilet upstairs too.
One TV upstairs and really pretty colourful lighting coming from the walls when you want to relax in the evening.
Car parking right outside our property.
Beautiful surroundings, lots of walks (unfortunately it rained for one day out of 3 so couldn't get many walks in but that's the UK and April for you) We went on plenty of drives and the scenery is great. Visited the coastal areas and all beaches are lovely. Colwell Bay is about a 15 min walk from the Quarters. (not many paths on way, just road)
Would visit again and stay in the same place. Can't guarantee the weather but if we could then this place would be perfect.
Many thanks to Phil who was so helpful and accommodating.

“Staying at a Fort!!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Although we wanted to go away at New Years, we weren't able to so we thought we'd treat ourselves with a weekend somewhere "interesting". Golden Hill Fort certainly fit that bill. Our teenage daughter was quite excited about "staying in a fort". We booked very short notice through Blue Chip Holidays, who we have used before and provide excellent service.

The entire experience was stress free and enjoyable. The facilities were exactly as described, including black out blinds, fat duvets, fluffy towels, and broadband. The setting was amazingly quiet. We were met by the caretaker who helped us settle in.

We found plenty to do, even on a winter weekend. We can recommend breakfast at The Garlic Farm and Sunday lunch at The New Inn (book). There are walks in surrounding park (bring wellies) and the views from the roof garden are spectacular, even when it's a bit grey (bring binoculars).

Lovely experience "staying in a fort".

“Lovely weekend stay. Fantastic property, great for large get togethers.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Rented this house with the next door palmeston house for a weekend with 12 adults. Mostly en suite accomodation. High quality furnishings and great facilities.Fantastic open plan living. So much cheaper than the equivalent 6 bedroom house. Every bit as good as the pictures look - we were not dissappointed. Highly recommended. First time visitors to the Isle of Wight and we really enjoyed it. Hope to be back.
