I chanced upon this location whilst searching for accommodation that wasn't located in Cowes. Plus, the fact that this was situated on a farm was a plus point for us. Robyn greeted us when we arrived, and was extremely friendly and pleasant. There were breakfast provisions left in the fridge, and actual free range eggs from her chicken coup. Whilst...

Great choice for a young family. The cottage was clean, comfortable and homely. The kids loved the trampoline at the backyard and had plenty of space to play. John was a lovely host who would come by for quick chats with us and the kids were delighted when he gave them the chance to pick eggs from the chicken coop....

A beatiful garden at the backyard with a trampoline and chickens. Robyn invited my son to pick the eggs on the morning we were there. There...

John and Robyn were wonderful hosts and our family enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. John was very kind and it was a pleasant surprise returning to find our cottage already warmed by the heater. Very good sleep at night, all pitch black outside and fresh air around. Collecting eggs from the coop was a memorable experience. Happy...

Dear John and Robyn, Thank you for hosting us. The children loved the farm and John taking the extra time this morning to take them round, was really sweet. It made their holiday really a memorable one. The cottage is so well equipped. that one could literally cook a big meal there. An highly recommended place to rest and stay

Wow what an experience! Our stay was simply fantastic. Great country hospitality. The breakfast was exceptional and afternoon tea on arrival to a cool house was the perfect way to settle into our family getaway. It was wonderful to see the farm work being done (from the top window) without raising a sweat. Robyn and John were superb hosts with...

John was the most welcoming of hosts, The weather was cold but the cottage warmed up really quickly and became very cosy. The fridge was well stocked and the children got to collect fresh eggs straight away. John took us to see the milking and the calves, which was a treat, and invited us into his home for both evenings...
