Paddock Cottage - The Garlic Farm
My wife and I just spent 4 x nights at the Paddock Cottage for the first time. The cottage is well located and very clean and practically laid out. The coffee table was being used a s a TV stand meaning there was no where to put drinks etc when sitting on the sofa watching TV. I suspect this is a temporary situation and will be quickly rectified. Thoroughly recommended.
Thank you Joe for your kind words and feedback, we truly appreciate it! Kind Regards, Melanie
Amazing place to stay
The Garlic Farm is an amazing place to stay, very peaceful, staff is great. The Paddock Cottage is a nice cottage with everything needed. Highly recommended.
An enjoyable long weekend at The Garlic Farm
We loved the Garlic Farm setting, enjoying the Farm walks with our two dogs and the comfort of the accommodation. Being able to pop into the well appointed shop was ideal and the cafeteria food and service was perfect.
Just one disappointment was the unfortunate lack of warning given to us that there was going to be a party for a staff member on the Saturday night which meant a band/disco playing till midnight in the rearranged shop area!
We like our music but .........!
Unfortunately the Garlic farm owners were not fully aware of the situation and were not advised there was going to be disco music until late in the evening.
Thank you Norman and Chrissie for your kind words despite having a not so ideal evening on the Saturday... We hope it didn't spoil your stay too much and hope you will visit us again. Kind Regards, Melanie
Inspiring my view of the Isle Of Wight
We stayed in the paddock cottage with our two dogs . The cottage was clean cozy and welcoming . The surrounding farmland was very well looked after . It was a pleasure to walk through it . The wildlife was amazing not forgetting the peacocks who milled around the farm all day . Not forgetting the superb restaurant with its local ingredients can’t fault any of it . Will be back again .
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.
