General Info

Crab Cottage is a lovely detached cottage set in the heart of Bembridge on the Isle of Wight. This cottage is just as suitable for friends as it is for families; its superb layout is ideal and its location in this historic village gives access to some excellent pubs, restaurants, shops and beaches. The property is brand new and has been designed as a holiday home to provide stunning accommodation and spacious rooms. Inside you will find a lovely open-plan living space, with two navy sofas set around the large flatscreen TV, which has been mounted on the wall. The rooms have a light decor, with a splash of colour in the furniture and ocean blue window frames. Step into the fitted kitchen, with its modern navy units and solid oak worktops, it's the perfect space for some home cooking and socialising at the breakfast bar. The kitchen provides a large Smeg range cooker and American fridge fridge with its own 36 bottle wine cooler included. There is lovely dining table with seating for up to eight people, and views out to the patio and hot tub. Upstairs are three thoughtfully presented bedrooms; the master double has its very own en-suite shower room finished to a very high-standard with glossy blue tiles and double width shower. There are also built-in wardrobes and matching beside tables to the other double. The last bedroom provides flexibility with either single beds or another double with link beds. The main bathroom has a bath with shower overhead and a freestanding wide sink unit. Off-road parking is available for two cars, and there are a set of patio doors leading from the dining room, out to an enclosed patio area with a table and chairs and a luxurious hot tub. Whatever the weather, the hot tub is sure to keep you warm and your muscles relaxed. Enjoy a soak in the afternoon sun, then sit on the patio and treat yourself with a glass of champagne. Nearby attractions include Priory Bay, a bay with a sandy beach, perfect for your little ones to run around, with 7.5 acres of surrounding National Trust woodland and an offshore anchor point. Guaranteed to be a fun day out for the whole family. Crab Cottage is an excellent cottage for those family breaks. Read More

Fabulous place to stay

Have just come back from a three night stay at Crab Cottage and it was wonderful. From the comfy beds to the fridge with its own ice-maker, nothing had been spared. There is even a microwave now. The place was spotless and decorated to a high standard. I spent the weekend there with two friends, and after stocking up with food it was the perfect place to relax and chill in. My only criticism is that it could do with a coffee table and maybe a TV that could receive Netflix, but they are minor quibbles. Karla and Justin, the owners deserve to do well, and the welcoming box of chocolates and orchid were just the icing on the cake. I can't wait to come back to Crab Cottage and will recommend it to everyone I know.

Ideal family retreat

Stayed here with son and grandchildren. Fantastic cottage with all modern amenities. Range cooker and American style fridge freezer were well utilised. The utensils and crockery were all of a high standard and plentiful. Bedrooms were well appointed and roomy. Only slight criticism is that the mattresses were probably the worst we’ve slept on and that’s going some. Non supportive and would really benefit being changed. Apart from that pillows and towels were soft. Hot tub in garden was not used a great deal by us but a welcome addition. Just be aware shops are not really walking distance so best to bring essentials with you for a snack and cuppa on arrival. Parking is on the front of property and ample. Big plus is walking distance to beach. A lovely quiet area to relax Would recommend without hesitation

Modern accommodation, cottage feel

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Crab Cottage, family of 6 including a four year old and a one year old. This is an excellently built, modern property but with a seaside cottage feel. Comfortable and immaculately decorated and furnished. The location is perfect for exploring what the IoW has to offer with a beach within a few hundred yards. We had to child proof a little, putting away some of the nice touches (Wii, lamps, ornaments etc). This is a wonderful property, kitted out with everything you might need for a week's stay (with the exception of a micowave). The hot tub is a bonus which was used most days. The added feature of this property is that if you are interested in self-build or renovation and interior design, this is an example of how to do it! Tasteful, sympathetic, comfortable. All the facilities and details of the accommodation are accurately listed on Trip Advisor so don't need review but what isn't listed is the excellent quality of everything provided. We all loved it!
