Steve, his colleagues and two service users left The Ref Barn after a superb week's stay. Couldn't fault the property or the Sarah or Neil. We were made to feel very welcome and the visitors' welcome pack was very useful. The accommodation is very homely and the grounds are beautiful. Thank you very much. We thoroughly recommend it.

Truly outstanding, the facilities were brilliant, the welcome pack was thoughtful and Sarah and Neil were perfect hosts, tending to all our needs and making us all feel very welcome. They went above and beyond what would be expected and we are very grateful.

Our family of five have just returned from a really enjoyable holiday on the Isle of Wight. Staying at the Barn was a major contribution. Two of us have disabilities, one a wheelchair user. On arriving we were amazed at the high standard of accommodation and space. Sarah provided a warm welcome and a multitude of goodies in the kitchen.... More

The Red Barn is everything and more, from the moment you see the gardens of The Barn you know you have arrived. Beautiful, clean, homely and with all the needs a wheelchair user must have. For us having BBQ's on sunny evenings watching wild animals, baby owls, red squirrels and the owners adorable doggies was a big hit! Fun and... More

The tranquillity, ambience, perfect hosting (not too much, not too little), all facilities – and then some, cleanliness, surroundings. Usually at least 2 of these are missing for me when staying anywhere, but at The Red Barn Sarah and Neil have this all down to a tee. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and a little OCD, so for me...

Where do I start? The Red Barn is a beautiful place to be. Accommodation is perfect, comfortable, clean and welcoming. Ideal for disabled users meeting all our needs. Our hosts couldn't have been better, freshly laid eggs and home baked bread and cakes upon our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for Sarah and Neil. Would I go again? Try... More

We have just returned from our fourth trip to Sara & Neil's lovely property on the Isle of Wight. The fact that the weather was so good always helps, but being able to stay in such a well adapted property with such helpful lovely owners on site just tops it off. My wife who is wheelchair bound suffering from progressive... More

We have stayed at the The Red Barn every year since Sarah and Neil opened the property for letting. We had another memorable holiday there in August 2013. Sarah and Neil are so welcoming and willing to make your stay with them special. An outstanding property with splendid views and a very good base for touring the Isle of wight... More

We had a fabulous time. Sarah and her husband couldn't do anymore to make us feel welcome. The Barn is set within a farm grounds very peaceful and beautiful. A wonderful Barn converted to every need for a disabled holiday. Our guys loved it.. We will be back. Recommend this to everyone.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Red Barn and we are planing to go again. The Red Barn is situated in lovely countryside in the centre of the island and is the perfect location for exploring all over the island. The accomodation is perfect for disabled people, families with children or just some where to escape... More
