We visited the Isle of Wight to see Osborne House. My wife and I picked Hermitage Court Farm because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed.
Jane welcomed us when we arrived and immediately made as feel at home. She made us tea and presented us with a delicious jam cream sponge cake.
The room we stayed in (The Niton Suite) had a separate sitting room and both rooms were spotless.
Chris (Jane's husband) gave us directions to Osborne House and arranged a dinner reservation at a local restaurant.
Nothing was too much trouble an we felt more like friends staying for the weekend rather than paying guests.
The breakfast was perfect (we are both vegetarians) and served in the dining room that has the most spectacular views over the green rolling hill of the Isle of Wight.
We will defiantly return when we visit the Isle of Wight next year and will tell our friends.
- 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
