I stayed at Nettlecombe Farm ("Robin" cottage) with my wife and three daughters, aged 3, 19 and 21, for a week in June. The cottage had everything we needed, and was very clean and comfortable. The farm is on a hill near the village of Whitwell, so was windy at times, but the view from the kitchen window over the... More

I took my 2-year-old twins here as their birthday present. They are OBSESSED with cows and all animals so I figured - what could be better? I am so glad I did. It was such an ideal holiday. Full of excitement and joy from my kids and nice peaceful moments together as a family. Facilities are clean and cozy. Parks... More

We visited Nettlecombe a few weeks ago, outside of the school holidays. We had an absolutely amazing time. The cottage was well equipped, including two high quality cots for the kids and a high chair. Me and my daughter went on the morning 'feeding' round with John everyday. You get to feed all the animals and collect fresh eggs. John... More

My family of 4 spent a week staying in the Heron Cottage of Nettlecombe Farm. The farm is situated perfectly near the delightful little town of Whitwell, and surrounded by beautiful, green and rolling hills. A short walk across the farm and up a hill provides spectacular views of the farm and the surrounding area. Every morning our curtains were... More

Having just returned from our fabulous weeks stay at Nettlecombe Farm (robin cottage) I can honestly say that all of my young family are having withdrawal symptoms. No more so than my three year old daughter, she can't understand why we can't have a daily tour/feed of the farm animals with her new hero Farmer John!! We lead a fairly... More

Don't know from where to start to describe it. It had everything you would expect from your relaxing holidays. We were 4 families and first word was "WOW" when we all saw property and surroundings. Children love the animals and playing area with toys. Adults love the place to relax. Owner was so friendly to help in all manner. Cottage... More

My first time on the island and I absolutely loved it. Nettlecombe Farm is a very special place. Probably the first holiday I've been on where I'm already thinking about going back. The highlight for both the kids and us were our morning visits to see the animals with Farmer Jon, a lovely local guy, full of information about the... More

Just had the most amazing holiday staying at Nettlecombe farm (oats cottage). Wonderful location with the hills in the background. The accommodation was perfect. Jon - the farmer - showed the children how to feed the animals every morning and was full of interesting information about the animals and also interesting information about the lsland. We will definitely return again.

Returned from a week staying in Barley with our 21 month-old son. He absolutely loved the holiday and very quickly repeated "farm" and "animals" all week. Nettlecombe is a beautiful location, but all credit has to go to Jose for the setup and what they have made of Nettlecombe Farm. Despite having numerous cottages and guests, it doesn't feel crowded... More

Just returned from a week in 'Wren' with my husband an 23-month-old daughter. Nettlecombe farm is in a lovely spot and has great outdoor facilities for an active toddler. The morning feeding tours were a highlight of the visit. The farm is in easy reach of IoW attractions but you probably do need a car to get around.
