We had a wonderful time In Summer Breeze caravan in Skinners Farm. We were a group of three adults and we stayed for 3 weeks in April.
Skinner Farm is a working farm with 3 caravans on-site. The environment is amazing: quiet, with views to the green landscape you will enjoy in sunny or stormy days as well as in full moon nights. Even if the farm is a working farm it is not noisy at any time of the day, there are no animals around and it is clean. The only care you should take is on the entrance road to the farm because it is not paved yet and there are some potholes you should avoid, so drive slowly.
Summer Breeze caravan is big and branch new. There are three bedrooms (1 double, 2 twins), one bathroom, one cloakroom (lavatory) and an open area with a kitchen and a living room. The caravan has everything you would need for a short or longer stay: kitchen utensils, microwave, oven and fridge, TV, linen and towels and WIFI with good reception. They clean the caravan and change the linen and towels every week and the caravan is spotless clean. We had a bit of a cold weather and because there is no insulation you get the same temperature inside than outside. However the gas heating and an electric fireplace work perfectly. The only facility that is missing is the washing machine but you can go to any of the several laundry services in Cowes or Newport.
Skinners Farm is located between West Cowes and Newport. It takes about 10 min by car to get to the Ferry in West Cowes and around 15 min to go to Newport. We did not try public transport in the island and I cannot provide information about it but I would probably advice to bring your car if you were staying in Skinners Farm and you wanted to move around.
As we said at the beginning we loved our stay here and we would repeat the same experience anytime. Clare and her family did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Even if we arrived late at night she gave us a warm welcome and she even baked a cake for us during our stay. If you’d like to stay in the countryside with great accessibility to the main roads, in a quiet and wonderful environment and friendly host family do not doubt to come here. You will not find a higher quality with better price.
