We've just come back from the most fabulous week staying at Three Gables. The house and garden are beautiful and the setting is in a fantastic part of the island - minutes from wonderful beaches, walking trails and idyllic scenery. Roma and Martin have thought of everything and they run the place with warmth, care and great professionalism. The house is spacious, immaculate and very peaceful with an extremely nice kitchen. We came as a large family with multiple ages and everyone loved it. A dream home.

I could not recommend this place enough! Situated in the beautiful Isle of Wight countryside, the house has a nostalgic feel to it yet is equipped with everything you’ll need for your stay. The garden is the star of the show, gets sun all day and has plenty of furniture for everyone. Roma was the perfect host, helped book ferries there and back and kept up quick and helpful contact. Over all it would be a disservice to give this place anything under a 10/10. Will certainly be one I’ll be returning to!

Our group of 7 ladies, (old school friends who meet up once a year), found the accommodation at Three Gables very comfortable. The views from the rear windows of the house had the wow factor and the welcoming touches of biscuits and eggs were appreciated.
Our weather was challenging at times, but we enjoyed trips to Osborne House, the Isle of Wight Pearl and the Garlic Farm - the latter recommended for lunch.
Roma was very helpful with arranging our ferry crossings and quick at responding to enquiries.
Thank you for making our holiday on the Isle of Wight such a pleasant experience.

Our group of ten ladies for a hen party had a wonderful time. Thank you so much, Roma!

The house was really clean, and we were so grateful for lovely touches like the basket of firewood to keep the fire going for chilly March evenings. The living room was a great space to relax together, and beds were all very comfortable.

Brilliant communication from Roma throughout our stay made everything run smoothly.

The location was great - very quick drive to get to lots of great beaches around the island, and great Greek takeaway available from the piano café nearby meant we didn't need to cook on one evening when we were feeling a little tired.

Many thanks again for a lovely stay
Would thoroughly recommend

Our party of 7 (4 adults, 3 dogs) had a thoroughly enjoyable week at Three Gables. The pre-visit correspondence was always helpful & appreciated. The accomodation is delightful & we could all see how a much larger party would be able to use the space, yet we didn't feel like we were rattling around in the house either. The garden was ideal for our dogs (2 golden retrievers & a flat coated retriever) the youngsters thought the tiered areas were amazing for zooming up & down...it actually had me wishing for a bit better weather to roll down it too!! Perfectly located for access to all of the best the isle has to offer with the fabulous bus service available from just beyond the end of the drive. Thanks Roma for your hospitality.

An excellent, well planned and very comfortable holiday home with a great garden and views. Three generations of our family (4 months to 74 years old) - and our 3 dogs - had a wonderful time with warm weather. So much to do on the island as a group - beaches (wild and more traditional sand and picnic spots), Butterfly World, Mottistone, Taplin Farm, Yarmouth Castle.
Thank you Roma for arranging ferries, recommending some good places to eat and being so welcoming. We hope to back before long.

Spacious, comfortable and excellently equipped accommodation in a scenic site, superbly situated for visiting all parts of the island. Helpful and friendly owners live next door. Our party of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Three Gables - our only disappointment was that the inclement weather we experienced prevented us from using the attractive garden facilities to the full. (16 - 23 September 2023)

Three Gables is a wonderful holiday home. Roma and Martin welcomed us and made us feel at home the minute we arrived. The warm atmosphere, comfortable furnishings and very well equipped kitchen provided a very high standard property. The views from the kitchen and lounge are amazing and the verandah and garden give such a lovely variety of outside seating. What ever the weather you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful countryside. The location of Three Gables makes all of the island very accessible. I couldn’t recommend this lovely holiday accommodation more highly.

Three gables was the perfect accommodation for three generations - 9 people and 2 dogs for our holiday. it was spotlessly clean and incredibly comfortable. the garden was immaculate and the youngsters loved the garden games. Easy parking, enormous fridge and freezer for all our food. Kitchen was well equipped as lots of extras for the dogs too. if we come back to the island, we would most definately stay here again.

Three Gables is a wonderful house for large family holiday. It is comfortable,well equipped and works well with 4 bathrooms, easy parking and delightful garden with excellent furniture. We found it a good base for exploring, good body boarding at Compton Beach,access to cycle hire and even axe throwing.
Roma and Martin made us very welcome and thanks for returning the toy aeroplanes over the fence.
The view from the house is very special, with wonderful scenery.

Peter Beevis

Ideal accommodation and location. Facilities in the house are excellent. Situated on the quieter site of the island but everything is still easily accessible - so the best of both worlds.
Roma was very helpful from initial booking to our final departure.
Highly recommended for ages 2 - 72!

This holiday home is perfect. immaculately clean with everything you might need especially in the kitchen. It caters for up to 10 adults with its seating and bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. We were an multigeneration family of 8 and enjoyed the house and the garden plus the lovely summerhouse and bbq.
We visited Carisbrooke Castle (grandson aged 4 loved it) Ventnor beach (fish and chips on the beach plus good loos) Shanklin beach and Totland Bay. Godshill model village the garlic farm (had a lovely lunch there and bought some pickles) and the dairy farm (ice cream and cheese!) Grandson loved Blackgang Chine ...especially the dinosaurs. We had an evening meal (prebook) at the Blacksmiths where the food and ambiance and view was perfect. On the last day we did a quick visit to Osborne House where we wished we had more time
The weather was great which was a real plus and we would all like to return to three gables and the IOW in the near future ....we could easily and happily have spent another week here. Oh and plenty of room to park several cars!

Wonderful family space for a comfortable, quiet and memorable holiday. The house was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. Nice secure and well maintained garden with games and summerhouse! Plenty of bedroom space and bathrooms galore, great when you have little people to bath after a day at the beach. So much on the doorstep, a great location. Roma and Martin have done such a wonderful job of creating a fantastic holiday home.

Three Gables is the perfect family getaway home and Roma is a lovely host. All info given & Roma is on hand before the stay for any help needed. The house was super duper clean, spacious and had everything you need for a great stay. The kitchen has stunning views and lots of room in the whole house there was 10 of us and 2 dogs in total! In terms of location it’s bang on and some lovely walks around the local villages - even one that ends at a pub! Will be back for sure

Jordan Cox

Another fantastic stay at the Three Gables for NYE. The house enables 3 families to come together and stay comfortably within a beautiful property that has everything you need. The house is located in lovely quite village and the views to the rear are stunning. We won’t stay anywhere else on island if the house is available. Thanks again Roma and Martin.

We were looking for a sizeable house with five bedrooms and plenty of bathroom facilities for our Autumn trip with son, daughter and their families (involving four grandchildren). Three Gables looked to fit the bill and we were not disappointed.
Spacious property with super kitchen diner ideal for our needs. Well equipped kitchen with adjacent comfortable lounge. Although not needed in the Autumn, the garden was well supplied with garden tables/chairs/bbq etc - ideal for the Summer.
The hosts Martin and Roma live in an adjacent property and were helpful and friendly at all times.
Highly recommended.

When looking for a house on the Isle of Wight with mostly en-suite bedrooms, to accommodate 4 mature but active couples, the choice appeared limited, but when we all arrived at Three Gables, we knew we needn’t have worried. Roma was there to welcome the first arrivals, and available to offer advice on, for example, the best paddle-boarding locations. All of us were very pleased with the house, the well-equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, and the quietness and rural views. Roma also helped with re-arranging our ferry crossings when Wightlink kept changing the times! Three Gables was an ideal venue for our annual get-together – we had a great week.

We have just returned from holidaying at Three Gables where we had a wonderful time.
Lovely house, well equipped and our three children loved the garden. Roma, the owner,
was very helpful and helped to make us feel very welcomed. Would definitely recommend.

3 families (6 adults, 6 children & 4 dogs) stayed here for a week- couldn’t have asked for more- house and garden perfect- everything you could possibly need. Would definitely stay again and recommend. Roma also really helpful when booking and dealing with queries etc. Thankyou

Thank you Three Gables for a fantastic week on the Island. You had everything we needed, the garden was a complete hit with the kids, and the view from the hot tub was wonderful! We would thoroughly recommend staying here and enjoying this lovely side of the island.

We had a wonderful week at Three Gables to celebrate my husband#s birthday. The house is perfect for families with loads of space to be together or get some quiet times. The kitchen is very well equipped for the most gourmet of cooks!

Sue McIntyre

Three Gables was the ideal holiday home for my whole family of six adults and 5 grandsons (aged from 18 months to 9 years old). Five very good size bedrooms( 3 doubles and x2 twins plus cot and one other bed).
Everything you needed was there. The garden is great for children to play in, even room for the younger boys to cycle around. It was great to sit out in the evenings (eventually) and have a quiet drink on the veranda and look over the surrounding countryside. The location is great, with Compton Beach and Yarmouth, and the Needles in easy reach.

We have now stayed on the island three times in four years and this was by far the best accommodation/ holiday.

Absolutely fabulous home, can't fault it. Three Gables is a beautiful property, very spacious with everything, and more, you could possibly need on your holiday. The kitchen is the hub of the home with stunning views from the large window looking out over the fields. It was so peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. Bedrooms, en suites and bathrooms were all a great size. Everything was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The well established garden was beautiful and a joy to sit in, with plenty of tables and chairs and sunbeds for everyone.

We hired a hot tub from D. R Clean which was so easy. It was set up Saturday morning before we arrived and was collected the following Saturday after we left. All we had to do was enjoy the bubbles.

Location was also very good, of course, you're never far from anything on the Isle of Wight. Would highly recommend along with the take-away next door which was delicious. Thank you Roma for such a wonderful holiday.


05 Jul 2022

From a 4 month baby to a 90 year old we could not fault Three Gables, how can you improve upon a 100 % satisfaction for our family of 8 + 2 babies. Everything we could have wished for was provided. We all could recommend without hesitation. Thanks to Roma for answering questions by e-mail by return. Tony R.

We have just returned from an amazing week on the Isle of Wight. Three Gables is a spacious well positioned and fantastically equipped house. We were a party of 11, including children of 14 months and 23 months. The house is spacious and comfortable with terrific views across the country side, as well as having a well-maintained and beautiful garden.

As a group of five adult couples, we found this place wonderful. Real sense of space, all the little touches in terms of cooking facilities, outdoor games, etc. Would strongly recommend.

We have recently spent Christmas 2021 at Three Gables and would highly recommend it for holiday accommodation. Roma and Martin, the hosts, were lovely and helpful and the home was spacious, clean and superbly equipped. We genuinely had no complaints or issues at all, it was fabulous.

We have just returned from a fabulous family week at Three Gables. It was spacious, very comfortable and well situated. Watching the sun rise whilst eating breakfast was so memorable. The grandchildren loved playing in the garden. We have returned relaxed and refreshed despite a busy schedule - enjoying all the Isle of Wight has too offer.


01 Nov 2021

Three Gables is a lovely holiday home, spotlessly clean and very helpful, friendly hosts. We were a family of seven getting together to celebrate two milestone birthdays and a late Christmas. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking for a large group. Plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms all attractively presented and large lounge with lots of seating. The views from the terrace and garden are delightful. We had two family members that have mobility issues at the moment, having downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms was ideal.

Three Gables is a wonderful place for a family of 10 to be reunited after over 2 years apart, due to COVID restrictions! Three families, aged 5 to 70, and we all agreed it was the perfect holiday in a beautiful setting. The house is lovely; very spacious, light, bright and airy, and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Each of the 5 bedrooms was beautifully decorated and comfortable, with plenty of storage. We could be all together in the living room, or in the super kitchen, and the garden afforded great space for relaxing, eating or playing. The children had plenty of space to run around and play ball games or hide and seek, and they gave the choice of dvds a definite 10 when they needed some downtime. The views and the setting were beautiful, and the situation of Three Gables meant quick and easy access to the Island’s many attractions, beaches and super country walks and hikes.

Thank you, Roma and Martin, for your warm and friendly welcome, and for creating a haven of a holiday home on the beautiful Isle of Wight. It far out reached any expectations, thanks to you.

We have just had the most wonderful week at three gables. The house is absolutely stunning - a real home from home with a beautiful outlook and garden. We have stayed in so many cottages and this really topped them all. The children loved the outside ball games and we were so touched by the biscuits and selection of teas/ coffee on our arrival. You couldn’t meet nicer people that Roma and Martin and they are just next door if we needed anything. Highly highly recommend and we will be back! :)

We just came back from the most wonderful week at The Three Gables.
Thank you Roma and Martin for being such warm hosts and for being so attentive. Communication with Roma was excellent and she even booked our ferry for us.
We were very comfortable in the house and the kitchen is very well equipped, working from home was no problem as the wifi was very good and the garden is splendid - we spent many hours outside in the sunshine having barbeques!
We really could not have asked for more and can't wait to go back as soon as we can!

The Three Gables is the perfect blend of home from home with an added extra holiday touch.The house is spotlessly clean but still homely and is so spacious that we were never falling over each other. The bedrooms are well located so you can all have a degree of privacy when or if you want it and the house is very well well - equipped. Not just enough to manage but with everything you might want. Roma was in touch as soon as we made our booking offering to arrange ferry crossings, helping me source cycle hire and generally providing us with information to ensure we got the most out of our stay at Three Gables. The house is well located, with cycle routes in easy reach, pubs a short drive away and supplies / takeaway available at the nearby campsite. WiFi is nice and fast which, with teenagers in the family, is a big bonus. it was a super house for our annual 3 generation family holiday. I haven't stayed in better. Thank you very much Roma and Martin.

Gosh, just returned from the most wonderful stay at Three Gables.
I've stayed in many a holiday accommodation and this one is easily the best of the best.
It's a home away from home. We could have stayed another week.
It has every amenity you could need, washer, air dryer, roku, smart tv, hair dryers,a fully functional kitchen inc giant fridge freezer, bathrooms aplenty, enough sofas for everyone, room for kids to run around and the icing on the delicious IOW cake, a beautiful big closed in garden with stunning views.
Oh and epic WIFI. I know that matters for many.
Roma and Martin were perfect and friendly hosts.
Book it now. Or maybe don't because we would like to return next year.

We had the most fantastic stay at The Three Gables! We were a family of 10 adults with 2 infants and the house had everything we could have needed for our stay. The place is so comfortable, with a great configuration of bedrooms and living areas. Each bedroom felt well separated from the next and sound insulation (bearing in mind our 2 infants!) was very good. The living spaces are very spacious, which was perfect for our family gathering. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook 4 or 5 massive family meals - not a utensil we couldn’t find! Plenty of space in the kitchen diner to congregate whilst cooking and to all be seated comfortably when eating, with the lounge having plenty of comfortable seating around the log fire (for the colder nights). The balcony /decking area sits above a beautifully managed garden, offering the most spectacular and blissful views across West Wight. There was plenty of space for the 4 cars we had to park right outside the house. The beach is only 5-10mins in the car, with the most stunning beach/coastal walks in either direction and a very large Co-Op about 10mins away in Freshwater. Roma’s communication and speed of response was brilliant and we felt extremely welcome from start to finish. Even down to the booking of our ferry tickets. The Three Gables really was a home from home for our trip and we’ll hopefully be visiting again soon.


27 Apr 2020

I booked this for a week for myself & husband; our daughter, husband and their 4 yr old son; our son, wife and their daughters, age 13 and twins age 10. So, ten of us.

Communication with Roma before our stay was brilliant, answering questions promptly. She offered to take in an online shopping order for us, which saved carrying a load of food in our car boots! She also offered to book discount ferry tickets for our three cars, for which incidentally, there was ample parking. Both offers she carried out, even taking the trouble to put away the freezer and fridge food.

Roma welcomed us and explained where things were and said she was available to answer any questions and help in any way. She came to wish us a safe journey home too. A special lady.

The house was perfect, the lounge area and dining table had plenty of room for ten. There were some lovely touches too, such as a vase of sunflowers on the window sill.

Roma provided a large box of chocolate biscuits, tea coffee and milk to start us off and a surprise jar of recently made home-made marmalade. It was delicious and we are finishing it off at home!!

The kitchen was extremely well equipped and wanted for nothing. The American style fridge freezer held everything we had.

The house had enough books to fill a library for all ages and masses of DVDs, again to suit all ages and tastes. A TV, radio/CD player and phone/iPad charger and of importance these days, excellent WiFi!!
There was an assortment of games for inside and out and a table with up to date leaflets and magazines on things to do on the Island.

The five bedrooms are all a good size with plenty of storage. The beds were comfortable and there were good quality bath sheets and hand towels for each person.
The whole property has lovely decor, country style downstairs, modern colour scheme upstairs.

The terrace had table and chairs, a wicker seat and foldable chairs and in the large garden there were 4 sun loungers with lounger mattresses in a storage box.

The garden is beautiful with well-tended pot plants and flowers and a large lawn. It was very private too, but the views from the lounge, kitchen windows and terrace of the surrounding countryside are wonderful!

Within a short distance there is a holiday caravan park. This proved handy for odd items from the shop there. There is also a takeaway on the site and we enjoyed fish and chips one evening. Roma provided information and menus to assorted public houses and we had a splendid meal at one of them, The Horse and Groom, which caters well for families. A BBQ is provided along with charcoal and lighters and we made use of it one evening!

We all agreed that this is a perfect place for families to stay. We could not fault it in any way. We strongly recommend it.

We had a lovely holiday at Three Gables and were lucky enough to enjoy two weeks of glorious sunshine. The house is perfect for families and suits all ages. Ground floor bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, a fabulous kitchen and a comfortable lounge. Lots of games and DVDs etc for kids and adults and its also very dog friendly. A great welcome pack for both the dogs and us humans and a warm welcome from the owners who are genuinely lovely people and very helpful. For us the garden was the icing on the cake, it’s perfect for children and dogs as it is enclosed and safe. It’s also very pretty and well looked after. We bought a paddling pool for the little ones and hired a hot tub for the adults. The garden is ideal for ball games BBQs and lazing in the sun. The decking is a great social space where we had lots of sunny breakfasts and quite a few chatty and boozy evenings. I would highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely go back.

10 wonderful days spent in this great holiday home. Spacious bedrooms with very comfy beds and endless bathrooms! House well equipped with everything you would need including 3 tvs plus a large and safe garden for children to play. Beautiful views over the countryside. Friendly and helpful owners, Roma & Martin, made our stay perfect including a welcome hamper and discounted tickets for the car ferries. We felt very much at home, highly recommended.

We were very happy that we chose your property for the annual holiday that has become a regular event for my sister and mother-in-law since they both became widowed. This was the 8th such holiday and we have stayed in accommodation in Cornwall, Herefordshire, North and South Wales, Kent and Wiltshire, as well as the Isle of Wight and the consensus is that yours was outstanding in terms of scenic location, quality, comfort and amenities provided and especially suited for the needs of our older family members, with walk-in showers and downstairs bedrooms as well as those upstairs. The garden is lovely and you provided all the comforts imaginable, a far cry from other properties that just supply the bare essentials.
Thank you

A week at Three Gables.
5 out of 5
We came here for a family holiday and to celebrate a 40th birthday. Roma and Martin couldn’t have been more helpful in answering our queries and welcoming us to the Three Gables. The house is very spacious and the large very well equipped kitchen diner overlooks a beautiful fully fenced garden (a must as we had 3 young children). The house was extremely well equipped to meet the needs of everyone in our group - games for us all, a barbecue to enjoy, toys for the children and a delightful welcome pack which was very appreciated after our long journey. Thank you for a fabulous week.

We spent a week at Three Gables as a family group of 9 (plus 2 dogs), ranging in age from 8 months to 80 - the house was perfect for our needs! Lots of space, lovely secure garden, plenty of bathrooms so everyone could get ready at the same time, well equipped kitchen, really can’t fault anything. Roma and Martin were so friendly and welcoming and every little touch had been thought of, including lovely complimentary toiletries in the bedrooms, a welcome basket full of homemade goodies, holiday ID tags for the dogs and all the baby equipment we needed. The house was ideally located for some lovely walks and sites a short drive away. Loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend to others.


10 Jun 2018

My husband, Mum, 4 dogs and me have just spent 5 amazing nights at Roma and Martins absolutely beautiful house. It’s spacious, modern, airy, has stunning views, is immaculately clean and has everything you could wish for. Extremely comfy beds, lovely kitchen and bathrooms, comfy living room and a lovely garden overlooking miles of hillside (perfect for the dogs and our bbq and cuppa’s). Roma and Martins house is central for most places and only 8 miles from the needles. Roma and Martin made us feel so welcome and even booked our return ferry. The only negative is our holiday is finished - we will be back
Thank you

We spent a wonderful 5 days at Three Gables. Our party of eight friends and 2 dogs were really comfortable here, Roma was a great host, from the ease of booking to arrival instructions, it was good to be able to phone and discuss the details prior to our booking. We were a group of old friends getting together to catch up and celebrate 2 x 65th birthdays and do some walking even though the weather wasn't always great, Roma recommended some excellent not too muddy walks. The house was spotlessly clean and is very well equipped and we lacked for nothing. The house is very spacious with plenty of room for all of us not to be crowded, it was a great luxury to have 4 bathrooms, the kitchen had everything we needed with a lovely large dinning table for our long chatty meals. The views from the house are beautiful and the garden is secure which was great for our two dogs, we loved the temporary dog tags with the address and contact numbers of Three Gables on them. We all had a fabulous stay here and will have no hesitation in returing one day , planning to come back soon with my children and grandchildren, hopefully with better weather! Thank you for a memorable holiday and thanks for organising the discount ferry tickets too.
