We stayed with Jayne and Chris for one night in January and what can I say, we both had a fantastic time. Our hosts welcomed us at the door and brought tea, coffee and cake up to our room whilst we settled in. We asked for recomendations for dinner and were pointed in the direction of what turned out to be a great pub and even asked if we would like them to make a reservation on our behalf- good job too as it was very busy. Breakfast was requested the night before and served in our room at exactly the time we had asked for - full English and fresh fruit salad (including strawberries in January!)

The farm is about a half a mile from the main road so walking would be for the not so faint hearted but no problems to get to in a car.

We were given a good welcome. No need to knock the door as the location is so remote they could see us coming. The trip up the lane was over a mile to get to the house along small back roads but I was suprised to see my Sat Nav took us right to the property.
The location is really good and the view grand.
Its was winter but all around were signs of Spring.
At night it was quiet.
Breakfast was as ordered and plenty of tasteful food served in the room on time.
Nearby walks were easy to do as a pathway runs beside the building.
The room was very large with plenty of room and with two toilets!
I would recommend this to anyone wanting a peaceful stay await from the crowds

We both really enjoyed our stay at Hermitage Court Farm which surpasssed its write up. We were greeted with a genuinely warm welcome which set the tone for our visit. The room was bright and fresh, looking across the Isle of Wight countryside and breakfast, served in our room, was delicious - the option of scrambled egg and smoked salmon was a real bonus. Being well off the beaten track is slightly daunting but the local villages with their pubs and resturaunts are easily accessible by car.

The place is beautifully located, overlooking downs. For even more spectacular views, just climb the surrounding hills. The house is very cozy and home-like, the facilities are immaculate and the service, as provided by Jayne, is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.

We chose Hermitage Farm House because we wanted a number of things - a one night stay, somewhere clean and comfortable, a decent breakfast.

The location is excellent - very remote, but easy access to everywhere. Cleanliness was exellent - the house was spotless and in perfect order. The hosts were incredibly friendly but not imposing - we arrived late, (having gotten lost in the dark - don't rely on a SATNAV!) but we were made to feel very welcome despite the late hour. The rooms are well furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent.

Being used to 5*+ hotels around the world, this was an Isle of Wight gem and we will happily be returning!

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
