Woodside and Monktonmead

Residents of Arethusa Cottage

We're thrilled that you are considering holidaying at Arethusa Cottage Holiday Lodges ...

We hope we have covered everything on this website (see links above) to help you decide that you want to visit us but, if there is anything we haven't included, please do make contact with us - however trivial you think your question is. We will be happy to help.

We have two lodges available to you, both in the grounds of our own home. These can be booked individually or together for larger families or groups - max 10 people.

Monktonmead - sleeping up to 6 in 3 'rooms'; a double room, a bunk-bedded (adult size) room and a loft area with two mattresses set at floor level (not suitable for very young children or the elderly). Monktonmead has a good size kitchen (renewed and extended for the 2022 season), a bathroom - with shower pod (no bath) and a living space.  This lodge has its own large private decking area with a BBQ. Guests have shared use of our private indoor pool (with Woodside guests). Sorry but no pets allowed in Monktonmead.

Woodside - comfortably sleeping 2 in a double room but with space for 2 additional guests using the sofa bed in the living area. Woodside has a large kitchen and a modern shower room (no bath). This lodge has its own private gated decking area with a BBQ. Guests have shared use of our private indoor pool (with Monktonmead guests). We welcome dogs to Woodside (see booking terms).

See map below for our location. We will communicate beforehand with directions etc as access is only available to the lodges via Rosemary Lane, not always where the satnav sends you!

"This was our first holiday on the Isle of Wight and I don’t think we could have picked a better place to stay....We enjoyed our holiday so much that by the time we got back we booked another week later in the summer."
