This was our first holiday with our 20-month old son and we couldn't have picked a better location, or week for weather. The Barley cottage was cosy, comfortable and had everything we needed as well as our own garden. Most people when they go away can't wait to get back to their own bed but the beds here are so comfy! The play areas were fantastic and meant we didn't have to rush out every morning as there were things to occupy Samuel on the site. The setting was so tranquil and idyllic. Local pub in Whitwell had great food, local store in Niton excellent and to top it off our nearest beach was Steephill Cove, bit of a trek with a buggy (no road leading to it) but worth it! Great beach for toddlers and tasty crab pasties! Will definitely be returning. Loved it!
