We had a great time and the large garden was well used in the sunny weather. The flower meadow and the adult and baby peacocks made it even more special.
The accommodation was fine but the top floor is for short people only and the twin on the first floor is foot to foot so probably only suitable for children.
Thank you for your great review Richard, it means a lot to us. Kind Regards, Melanie
A wonderful setting, accommodation that was perfect for our group and a warm , friendly welcome.
All of our family was impressed by Little Mersley Farmhouse. We enjoyed sitting in the garden and having a BBQ. The kitchen was spotless and well equipped for a larger group. Everyone was made to feel welcome and our breakfast in the cafe was delicious. There are lots of facilities onsite and we hope to visit again.
Thank you Richard and family for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at the farm. See you soon :) Melanie
The Little Mersley Farmhouse plus the Milking Parlour were perfect for our large family group (including 2 young children).
The accommodation was well-equipped and clean. The Boswell family were most helpful and supportive. There was a range of activities offered by the Garlic Farm for children and adults. I can thoroughly recommend the Garlic Farm cottages for a great holiday.
Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review, it means a lot to us! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the farm and hope to see you again soon :) Melanie

Everything about the Garlic Farm is wonderful and the family can't do enough to make you feel welcome. We will definitely return again. We are a family of 7 adults and one child and there is more than enough room for all of us as it will genuinely accommodate 10 adults. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for self catering accommodation! We have stayed in both the depths of winter and in glorious sunshine and we enjoy both equally. The Garlic Farm is well located to visit the whole island. We always leave wanting more which is the best recommendation anyone can give.
Thank you Linda for your very kind words! Your last comment is definitely the best recommendation anyone can give, thank you! See you again soon I hope :) Best Regards, Melanie
We stayed in Little Mersey Farmhouse as a family of 8, The home cooked food we ordered for our arrival was excellent and we were made to feel extremely welcome. We look forward to our next visit,
Mersley Farm (AKA The Garlic Farm) is a working farm growing garlic and with a small herd of highland cattle, a few horses and chickens. The Garlic Farm Shop located in the farm yard sells all our unique garlic products, plus a range of Island products. We also have a restaurant open for lunch every day serving a selection of delicious freshly prepared meals by the experienced Island chef, Phil Hopkins. The restaurant has already received much acclaim for the quality of its meals. We also serve delicious breakfasts from 9am until 11am.
A ridge of chalk downs extends across the centre of the Isle of Wight from east to west. Drive over the top of Mersley Down as you approach the village of Newchurch and you will see Mersley Farm nestling in its sheltered position 300 ft below. Surrounded by unspoilt scenery and ½ a mile from a main road, it is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday, yet the nearest beach is no more than 10 minutes drive away.
Mersley looks over the valley of Newchurch, and the rolling Island countryside towards Godshill and the south of the Island. The Farm is one mile north of the village of Newchurch with it's prominent and interesting 11th Century Church and 18th Century Pub (The Pointer Inn), now serving excellent meals. Shopping areas are not far away as we are 4 miles from the main Island towns of Newport and Ryde.
Around the farm there are plenty of open spaces ideal for children to play including a football pitch with goals and a hard tennis court available to our visitors on request. We also have a games round with pool table, table tennis and games console. We would like to introduce you to our farm pets. We have a number of clucking hens who are always keen for feeding and sometimes lay us a few eggs. It is likely you will be given a warm welcome from the peacocks and black pigeons. There are also our resident highland cattle who you'll usually find in the field opposite the farm minding their own business in a 'don't-mess-with-us-and-we-won't mess-with-you' kind of way.
