“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed August 26, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The property was spotlessly clean, in a very quite location and suited us very well. The stairs are tight but the owners warn you about that and there isn't an oven to use. Otherwise it was very well equipped.

A very good find and I'd definitely use it again if going back to the Island.

“Beautiful scenery and lovely accommodation.”
Reviewed July 21, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hayloft. It really felt like home from home. Attention to detail was fantastic. Beautiful location. Everything you could need was there, even down to labelling light switches so you knew which did what. 5 mins from the ferry to the property, Tesco express in walking distance and such a delight to stay there. We'd definitely like to return for a longer stay.

“Long weekend at the Hayloft”
Reviewed March 9, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This was a lovely little apartment in the middle of peaceful countryside on the Isle of Wight. There are great views on a clear day from the terrace, and everything inside was clean and in good condition. I would definitely consider this place again if i'm ever back on the island.

“Perfect holiday rental”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We really enjoyed our stay. The Hayloft is lovely and cosy, and only a short distance from Fishbourne Port. We couldn't find fault with anything, our stay was perfect. Mark and Sarah were really friendly and helpful, and made sure that our stay was 5 stars. I would definitely recommend the Hayloft, and will be returning in the future!

“Pictures Don't Do It Justice”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I'm hesitant to write review in the fear that this place might get fully booked if people knew what an amazing stay we had, but it is the least I can do to thank Sarah and Mark for providing us with a perfect escape from the city life!
Upon arrival, I was greeted with a warm hug by Sarah and shown The Hayloft. She even offered to assist me with luggages up the small spiral staircase, but it was very manageable and to be honest, if you have common sense, it's easy enough to get your things up and down if there's two of you. The low ceilings on the sides sometimes caught my partner Gary who is 6'2" while going in and out of the bathroom and getting out of bed, but it didn't cause me any problems at all at 5'6". Tea, coffee, sugar, and some condiments were provided, the best one of which was the local honey in 3 lovely taster pots! Cutlery, glasses, cups, plates, pots and pans were also provided and we so much enjoyed cooking our meals instead of eating out.
The most memorable bit of our stay would most probably be the lovely sunrises we witnessed at 5:45 AM on both days we were there. The balcony overlooks a field with horses (and two boxer dogs), and on the horizon you have a beautiful view of the sea. It was just glorious!
We felt very much at home and was left to our own privacies and activities. We'd only seen them on the day of arrival, don't hear any noises from them at all and we were even allowed to leave whenever we want on our last day.
The Hayloft is definitely a place I would book again if I want a bit of escape from this busy life. No pictures attached as it doesn't really do it justice. You have to go to see it for yourself. :)

“Lovely place, great location ”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Well appointed, delightful place in a quiet rural location.

Lovely views greeted us each morning yet the place is not far from all the essentials.

The beds were comfortable and the honey samples from the neighbours was a lovely touch.

We will be staying again.

Thanks for that - the neighbours will be pleased to hear about the honey - and we are getting bees too this summer

“The WiFi works!”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at The Hayloft for the Easter weekend. Had it not been for a savage storm, it would have been very peaceful! Lovely private accommodation. Owner lives on site, next door. Very unobtrusive, but present if needed. Owner flexible re check-in / out times. Great views from balcony and skylights. WiFi actually worked! Have stayed at a few privately-owned properties, all in rural locations. WiFi (always listed as present) has varied from totally non-functional to intermittent at best. This was different. Although it dropped out fom time to time, video streaming was better than the paperwork suggested it would be. The wet-room works (drainage problems reported by previous users have been rectified). At 5'5 and 5'7 husband and I had no headroom problems with the sloping ceilings. The spiral staircase is as narrow as others report... definitely not suitable for the non-slim.
