This was the first time to Nettlecombe Farm and it did not disappoint. We came with our family and 3 year old grandson who had such a lovely time he just didn't want to go home. We stayed in Heron Cottage which had everything we could want. A bulb went in the lounge and was replaced immediately. Nothing was too... More

Nettlecombe farm is in an idyllic setting on the south of the island. The accomodation is clean and tidy with everything you need, and from a family perspective you can't ask for much more (wifi being the only suggestion). We have a young son who loved feeding the animals with Courtney in the morning. After a long day of visiting... More

We stayed as a party of 8 slightly mature adults, (combined ages somewhat over 500 years), in Corner Cottage which, with Forge Cottage, is separated from the main accommodation area. The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed much sunshine and clear skies, one of our party stepped outside on Saturday evening to enjoy a cigarette in the back... More

Our 1st and definitely not our last visit to Nettlecombe Farm. We stayed in the Robin cottage which was spacious, comfy, clean and had everything we needed for our weekend break.

We have just returned from an amazing week at Nettlecombe Farm. I first visited the farm when I was ten years old (23 years ago) when we discovered the three great fishing lakes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nettlecombe Farm has been in the Morris family for over a century, and you'll still meet us around the farm today. In the heart of the rolling Isle of Wight countryside, our farm is at the top of a quiet lane half a mile from the sleepy village of Whitwell. Surrounded by green fields and lakes, our luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation is not only safe and comfortable for visitors of all ages and abilities, it's also the perfect base to explore the farm with its friendly animals - or the Islands wider countryside and scenic coastline. Visitors are welcome to explore the farm and meet the animals, and there's plenty of fun to be had at any time of the year. In the Rickyard there is a wide variety of livestock to make friends with - usually chickens, geese, turkeys, pigs, goats, rabbits and even our reindeer ‘Comet & Dancer’. In springtime orphan lambs sometimes need feeding with milk, which can be messy but is always popular! When the kids need to let off steam there is a range of grassed play areas, toddlers play equipment, a big Wendy house, our fabulous wooden tractor and a rustic climbing play facility. For the older children there is a sports area ideal for all sorts of games and football. Our three fully-stocked fishing lakes and of course the farm and nearby countryside is full of places to explore, walk and cycle, and Nettlecombe is a dog-friendly farm too. You might be tempted to enjoy some relaxing yoga at one of our sessions in the modern function barn. Our beautiful rural setting is quiet and secluded, but it's easy to use the farm as a base to explore the beautiful island that is our home. Explore Queen Victoria's country retreat at Osborne House, see where King Charles I was imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle, or just marvel at the spectacular Needles. Beaches are especially easy to reach from Nettlecombe Farm, from the dramatic shoreline at Compton to the miles of golden sands and seaside amusements at Sandown and Shanklin. We think you will love this part of the Isle of Wight as much as we do. The passing of the seasons and the changing landscape make Nettlecombe Farm worth visiting at any time of year and we are happy to offer short breaks for out of season guests visiting between October & May. We look forward to welcoming you to Nettlecombe Farm... ... more   less
