Little Idyll is a grade II listed thatched, stone property, dating back to the 16th century, set in Ningwood, in the beautiful West Wight countryside. The exterior of Little Idyll projects an image of the quintessential 'Old England'. Step inside, and you'll find that the stonework and ancient timbers have been skillfully blended with a few contemporary pieces. With only three double bedrooms, the house is ideal for an intimate escape in splendid, rural surroundings. The large garden has a tranquil fish pond, and usually has a flurry of garden birds popping in for their meals. As well as the odd fox, rabbit, pheasant and woodpecker. You may find that you waste a couple of hours just watching all the creatures rush about with their daily business.

From the minute we stepped foot inside this B&B I felt myself start to unwind. Beautifully decorated and luxurious. Chloe obviously takes so much pride in this wonderful B&B. Homemade bread for breakfast each day which I craved for as soon as i'd finished. Just perfect.

High quality B&B made all the better by its location. Although on the main road between Newport and Yarmouth, the road isn't particularly busy and once ensconced in one of the two beautiful bedrooms, you won't be aware of it at all. We had fabulous views across unspoilt
