We stayed with Jayne and Chris for our Anniversary and what a wonderful weekend we had. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The bedroom was absolutely fantastic, immaculately clean and well presented and surprisingly spacious, with a very large and comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and offered a range of options....

Jayne & Chris are 2 of life's lovely people, who look after you. Good rooms and delicious breakfasts and great guidance on what to do. Total enjoyable stay in the hills with great views and seclusion but near to many interesting parts of the IOW. Hope to return sometime in the future

This is a first rate place to stay, with a warm welcome, fabulous views, brilliant breakfasts and spotless well-appointed rooms. It is also a walker's paradise and situated in the best part of the island for walks with wonderful views. Added to all of this, we felt very comfortable there. Highly recommended from us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hermitage Court Farm is the Isle of Wight’s most secluded and tranquil Bed and Breakfast accommodation: the ideal place in which to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern living and relax for a while between the green of the downs and the blue of the sky, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.Perched cosily under the tops of the National Trust’s St Catherine’s Down, and gazing down over the beautiful rural Isle of Wight countryside towards the waters of the Solent, the ten-acre Farm is hidden away, well off beaten tracks and more than a mile from the nearest main road, on the southern side of the Island. From here, and from the Downs at our doors, you can see everything ... yet hear nothing but the odd rabbit thumping across the lawn, a pigeon chortling, or the woodpeckers dining in the trees.Our peaceful surroundings, however, hide the opportunity for plenty of action. The Downs of the isle of Wight are full of history-from ancient burial mounds and a medieval lighthouse to one of Britain’s most amusing Victorian follies - and full of opportunities for leisurely exploration. A network of the Island’s well-known bridleways and footpaths crosses various parts of the property, and there is direct access to over a hundred miles of the finest and best-maintained footpaths, riding tracks and mountain-bike trails in Britain.A twenty-minute stroll across the Downs (or a very much shorter car trip) brings you to the nearby village of Niton, with its charming shops and friendly pubs, while a little further on you come to the famously picturesque village of Godshill with its much-photographed thatched roofs and celebrated cream teas. The Isle of Wight coastal towns of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor - famous as holiday venues from Victorian times -- with their glorious beaches and their cliff walks are just a short drive away. ... more   less
