My husband and I decided to head to Newport as a last minute getaway and thought about staying downtown. Boy am I glad that none of the Inns downtown had any rooms because our find at the Shamrock Farm Inn was a wonderful surprise. The place is beautiful and very well maintained. It was really nice to be outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport but only a short drive if you wanted to be downtown. The innkeepers are wonderful (William and his daughter). The gardens are spectacular and worth taking many photos. We were so impressed by the restoration of the Barn (inn) and no detail was forgotten. The rooms are very comfortable and the a/c came in handy as this weekend was very hot. The fresh muffins in the morning followed by fruit and a hearty breakfast was all one needed to keep you going for hours. We would highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking for some peace and quiet close to Newport. If you are a road biker and love taking in some scenery there is a nice 30 mile loop in Tiverton/Little Compton which is worth doing.
