“The best place to stay on the Isle of Wight!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Hermitage Court Farm is a beautiful house, set in the most stunning location,with the best views across the downs, and even all the way over the Island to the mainland! Jayne and Chris are lovely, they make you feel at home immediately and are both friendly and knowledgable about the Island, the local area, and all the best walks, the best places to eat and to visit! We stayed in The Stenbury Room, it is huge, immaculate, and has everything you need, a fridge, kettle, Sky tv. ipod dock, and the most stunning views both back and front and to the side of the house! Jayne and Chris should also be commended for the lovely little touches, fresh flowers in your room, milk and water in the fridge (the bottles of water being replenished daily) and lovely biscuits to go with an afternoon cup of tea! We stayed over Easter and the Easter Bunny even found us at breakfast....which we must mention...the breakfasts are wonderful! Definitly will be coming back as we miss it already! Thank you Jayne and Chris for making our week such a wonderful one! Les and Claire xx

The warm friendly welcome will make you feel right at home. An amazing location, peaceful with beautiful views. Jayne and Chris made us feel very welcome throughout our stay and deliver a 5* service. The room was clean, comfortable and a good size with excellent facilities. Breakfast had an excellent choice with great ingredients and will keep you going all day. Finding Hermitage Court Farm was reasonably easy just follow the directions on the website, it's well worth the drive down the country lanes.

We stayed at Hermitage Court Farm in the St. Catherine's suite for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality of Jayne and Chris. The St. Catherine's suite was spacious and comfortable and everything we could wish for was provided - fresh milk and water in our fridge replenished daily and biscuits for a late evening cup of tea. We were welcomed by Jayne with a pot of tea and delicious home-made cake. Breakfasts were beautifully cooked and presented with excellent variety of choice. On opening the blinds the first morning there was a brown hare sitting on the lawn. Beautiful views over the island by day and we enjoyed lovely starlit skies because of lack of light pollution. We can't recommend a stay at Hermitage Court Farm highly enough. Tom and Anne.

A beautiful location made memorable by the very friendly reception we received from Jayne and Chris. The cleanliness and attention to detail complemented by the wonderful breakfast will remain in our memory. There is no doubt that we will return to this idyllic quiet haven.

Hermitage Court Farm is one of the most relaxing places we have ever been to. The house is situated miles from any roads with stunning views over the Downs and even a sneaky peak of the sea (make sure you use a good map to get there)! Peace and tranquility is guaranteed, as is a splendid welcome from Jayne and Chris, who make the experience even better. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped, and the breakfast room with great views is perfect for an early evening meal. The breakfasts are amazing, with so much choice and all beautifully cooked. Try an evening home-made meal too - yummy! And when you have eaten as much as you can manage, it's easy to go for a walk or cycle straight from the front door to walk it off. Just a quick cllimb up the hill behind the house will give you fantastic views over the South side of the island as far as the Needles on a clear day. You might even see a hare on your way. This place is just perfect if you want to get away from a life and take some time to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery and Jayne and Chris make sure you want for nothing. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

Room Tip: The downstairs "St Catherine's Suite" is lovely - separate toilet and separate bathroo...

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
