Ideally situated in a rural setting and within easy reach of the sea and the Island's attractions. There is a very cosy pub in the village a short walk away with good pub food and dogs are allowed in.
We rented the barn for a family Christmas, eight adults and 3 children. The layout of the accommodation is really ideal. The bedrooms are in separate areas giving them a private feel. The owners Ken & June live close by in the Farm House and were extremely helpful during our stay, allowing us to use their store of logs for the fire. The barn has central heating and a pleanty of hot water. We were able to exercise our dogs in the owners fields which was great early in the mornings & late evening.

Management response:

Many thanks for your excellent review and we are pleased that you enjoyed Christmas in Buzzard Barn on the Isle of Wight. Many thanks and kind regards June and Ken 01983 529691

We stayed here with our 2 children and another family of 4.
When booking the owners were friendly and helpful and even offered to book our ferry crossing for us if we wished. They sent us directions along with some other useful information.
When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find milk, a huge bowl of fresh fruit and a lovely vase of fresh flowers. We were also told to help ourselves to logs for the fire.
The owners welcomed us and visited midweek to check all was ok.
The barn has been tastefully furnished and was very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean & modern and the showers were fab. The beds were comfortable & clean. The kitchen was well equipped. There were dishwasher tablets, washing powder, toilet rolls & liquid hand soaps in all bathrooms. Perfect!
The location is great, nice walks & local pub with fantastic food & warm & friendly service.

Porchfield is a small hamlet between Cowes and Yarmouth surrounded by green fields and copses. There are good walks from the village, one starts opposite the pub where there is a lane leading down to a farmyard and on to the shoreline, a lovely walk at any time of the year. Another walk leads off the main road from Porchfield to Cowes takes you to the Coastal path to West Cowes.

Buntshill Barns are ideally situated, as it is only 15 minutes drive from the car ferry port of Yarmouth, and just 10 minutes drive from Cowes and the yacht havens. Newport, the county town is 15 minutes drive where Sainburys and Morrisons are situated. Tescos will deliver online orders.
