“The perfect holiday, we loved it!”

  • 5 of 5

I am almost hesitant to write this review about the Dairymans Cottage Yarmouth because selfishly I don't want anyone to know about this amazing place as I fear It will never be available to me ever again. I want it to be our little secret'.

So here goes anyway! Yesterday myself and my two children girl (8) and boy (11) just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Dairyman's Cottage in Yarmouth. It was the first holiday I have had now with my children as a Dad on his own. So it needed to be extra special!! Which it was and really didn't disappoint.

First of all the Dairyman's cottage was set in a beautiful part of Yarmouth between Calbourne and Freshwater. It was a great location part of the Tapnells Manor Farm Estate. If you wanted to get to the great beaches of Compton Bay and Alum Bay and the needles and so close to Tennyson Down.

The cottage was so roomy it had 3 great sized double bedrooms and a lovely twin bedroom for the children. So officially sleeps 8. It has I f I can remember three en suite bathrooms with lovely showers including the ground floor with a wet room. Also a separate main bathroom also with a lovely bath to relax into after along day at the beaches and walking Tennyson Downs.

The standard of all the rooms and furnishings was very high. The linen was very high quality and the workmanship in the rooms including all the tiling was exceptional.

The kitchen was fantastic and had every thing you needed (except possibly a broom? which I am sure there was but couldn't find?). However there was a Henry hoover which I did use. The living room was so comfortable with large flat screen TV which my boy loved as he bought his PS3 with him and loved the fact that he could really chill after a long day at the beach. It had Sky Tv and we used it couple of time and relaxed and watched a movie as a family.

There is a large wooden farmhouse table that seats 10. A perfect entertaining table. Also sliding French Doors in both the living room and ground floor bedroom that look out tho the back garden and terrace and view of the downs. So nice to leave the doors open in the warm summer evenings.

The view from all the rooms were all wonderful looking out towards Tennyson Down and the sea possibly Brook.

Every morning my little girl would run at the crack of 7.30 am would attempt to get a freshly laid egg from the 20 beautiful red clucking hens in the chequered Chook house (caravan) near the Eco Huts on the farm. They were all

"Exceeded expectations; perfect family getaway!"

  • 5 of 5

The Dairyman's Cottage is a real gem in the countryside on the Isle of Wight - close to a myriad of beaches and with plenty nearby for all ages to do. The accommodation was just perfect for our extended amply group and catered for us all (ages 3 to 63!) The farm setting was wonderful with the opportunity for the children to meet the dairy farmers and help milk the cows as well as meet the chickens and play with the farmyard dog. The highlight though was the chance for the children to meet and stroke the calves - perfect!

Another lovely touch was the complimentary family pass to the V Dub Festival - a very thoughtful and generous gift from Charlotte and Kimmi. A visit from Tom was also a lovely gesture.

The cottage itself worked well for us in terms of its size, facilities and in particular the number of ensuites! Brilliant! There was also a good outside space for a few games of family rounders and a wonderful patio area on which to stand and admire the clear skies, glimpse the sea and gaze at the stars.

We will definitely be aiming to return again to the Dairyman's Cottage - overall, we simply could not have asked or a better base for our family holiday! Thank you Charlotte and Kimmi!
