We only stayed for the Easter weekend but it was the perfect little get away with the 2 kids. The 3 year old loved feeding the animals and all the places we visited close-by. Forge cottage was small but perfectly formed with a safe enclosed garden for the little ones to play in and hunt for Easter eggs too!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this place, the only downside to our holiday was that we had to come home! 7 of us stayed in Swallow for 4 nights over the Easter holidays, the pictures online do not do this accommodation justice. Swallow was absolutely huge and so beautifully renovated, it was spotlessly clean and had every...

We stayed in Forge Cottage for 3 nights over a weekend. This farm was pet-friendly, quiet and perfectly managed. The cottage itself was fully equipped, with massive open kitchen, massive dining table, very cosy bedrooms and outdoor BBQ facilities. The underfloor heating was definitely a plus in such a cold weather. However, the cottage did not have wifi. We could...

Booked the "Forge" as a last minute getaway 2 days before and was lucky to get the cottage at such late notice. Situated in the middle of the Isle of Wight to the south, perfect to explore the Island. Cottage itself was warm, comfortable, very clean and cosy. Loved the dining table built around the old forge inside. Everything you...

Just returned from Nettlecombe farm after a truly wonderful family reunion! Accommodation was perfect and the setting wonderful. There was plenty for the children to do ( they ranged from 1-11years) Will definitely be returning! The kids especially enjoyed going to the spy glass in nearby Ventnor where staff were dressed as pirates!
