Spacious, comfortable and equipped to a high standard

5 of 5
We had a thoroughly relaxing stay at the Dairy Barn. Slept really well in the comfortable beds and tranquility of the country lane. The children particularly loved the garden. Sally is a very welcoming and helpful manager. It was our first visit to the Isle of Wight - plenty of opportunities for fresh air - walking, cycling and beaches. We will definitely be back again in future.

Had a wonderful few days in this beautiful house. It had everything we needed and was in walking distance of shops, the beach and some lovely restaurants. Jo was great at contacting us and left us some amazing home made bread! We will be back in December.
