Milking Parlour IoW
A lovely cottage on a beautiful farm set in amazing countryside. The cottage is very well equipped, there is a tennis court and raquets available, a childrens play room in very good condition and a nice restaurant if you do not feel like cooking. Great for walks, seaside, surfing, exploring the isle. Great for families.
Excellent location, just need a bit of a clean!
This is a lovely location with the Garlic Farm on site for breakfast and lunches if you so desire. We went out most of the time to visit various attractions with the children and found this to be an excellent location being fairly central to get to everything quickly and easily.
The staff in the shop/cafe where friendly and helpful and the children were allowed to feed the 4 baby guinea pigs that they have! Out of hours when there was no staff around, we found ourselves helping new guests on where to go to so would advise that some signs would be helpful to direct new guests in.
The accommodation was well equipped with microwave, oven and BBQ (we used the BBQ!). Some little niggling things like the utensils could probably do with replacement now (the peeler was so blunt I could hardly peel a cucumber) and the built in fridge, the door would stick so you have to give it some welly to make sure it closed properly.
The only main comment I would make is that the property needed a good dust and clean, spiders/cobwebs everywhere and the general smell of dust in the air.
Thank you for your review, we take our guests' comments seriously so arranged a spring clean, changed the vegetable peeler and ordered a new fridge. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you and hope you enjoyed your stay with us nevertheless. Hopefully see you again soon! Kind Regards, Melanie
Fab accomodation in fab location.
The Milking Parlour fits in beautifully with the period charm of the Garlic Farm location on the Isle of Wight. There's lots to do for parents and children alike. It really is very special!
Thank you Peter! It's always a pleasure to welcome you and your family! Kind Regards, Melanie
part of family group
The Milking Parlour (together with the Little Mersley Farmhouse) was perfect accommodation for part of our group. The Boswell family were very helpful and supportive. Jenny's frozen dishes were delicious and generous! The cottage was well-equipped and clean. Set in a quiet valley, the Garlic Farm offers a range of activities as well as its own cafe, and makes a good base for exploring more of the Isle of Wight.
Why choose the Garlic Farm
This was our third holiday at the Garlic Farm and the only down side was that our stay had to be so very short. We choose the Garlic Farm, because it gives us everything we want from a holiday - peace and quiet in lovely countryside, no stress or pressure to do anything except roam around the Island and "sit and stare". The Garlic Farm always makes us feel welcome and it takes no time before we feel really at home. Thank you to everyone involved in making our holiday perfect.
What a lovely review, thank you Hugh for taking the time to write it. We appreciate your kind words. See you again soon hopefully! Kind Regards, Melanie
the perfect easter break
The communication between myself and Melanie & Hugo (the owners) was very good, they were very helpful with quick feedback. The Milking Parlout was superb a wonderful clean cottage with all the equipment you would require for a short break.I did most of the cooking whilst we were there as it was convenient. My grandchildren absolutly loved it there not only because there was many things provided for them to do and the location was near Sandown.
I would advise anyone to go there if they want the perfect break, we will definitely go abain.
