Wonderful open plan converted barn, in beautiful countryside, with everything a family needs

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed and will definately be back.

Welcomed by Sally ( Property Mgr), nothing was a problem.

Lovely big open plan comfortable and pristine living space.

Very large master bedroom with comfortable bed, TV, DVD player and good size ensure shower room.

Large second twin room with ensuite bathroom. A wide range of new fluffy towels in each ensuite.

Would thoroughly recommend to any one who’s looking for a break away from the normal pace of life.

The stable is central on the island so scenic walks over at Freshwater and Alum Bay are very close, great pool at Freshwater ( we’re out of season for all the parks) and lots of supermarkets around.

Beautiful cottage for a perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children and I stayed over Christmas and we couldn’t be happier. The cottage was fully equipped to make a wonderful Christmas lunch. The cooker was spotless! In fact, the whole cottage was immaculate. A real home from home.

The views are amazing! So quiet and tranquil and just 10 minutes drive from Newport town. An ideal location!

Perfect really

  • 5 of 5

Having struggled to find accommodation on an alternative website, I was very happy to have found this delightful cottage. Better than home from home! Comfortable, clean, quiet and well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome and the surroundings are lovely. It was a very relaxing stay which the whole family enjoyed. Hope to visit again.

Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean. Brilliantly stocked for kitchen items too!

  • 5 of 5

Utterly lovely holiday rental converted from an old farm building. Just launched - so don't be put off by lack of reviews. Owners and Housekeeper were lovely and as helpful as can be. It's a great spot for exploring the island. Close to most places and no more than about half an hour from anywhere - traffic depending. Peaceful, plenty of space and very comfortable. Our children loved the open plan downstairs while we appreciated having everything we needed on hand and in great condition. Book it while you can would be my advice. We will be coming back again to stay for sure.
