“Best holiday - EVER!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

My 6-year old & I have just returned from a fabulous week at this farm, staying in the perfectly appointed Wren cottage. I feel like I've had a month away due to the peace & quiet I experienced at the farm!! Wren cottage was decked out with everything you could need for a holiday and it was spotlessly clean, with lovely sheets & towels. We had a lovely time every day visiting the animals and playing on the play equipment before heading off to explore all that the island has to offer. I love the South side of the island and Nettlecombe farm is no more than 15 minutes from the nearest beach (Ventnor) and no more than 30 minutes to pretty much all the attractions on the island. We are booking for next summer already and can't wait to return!! I can't praise Nettlecombe Farm highly enough - and I'm one of the fussiest people to please!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Wren (1-bed) but all of the cottages are different sized and provide accommodation suit...

I have been to Nettlecomb Farm three times within a year! That's how much I love it. I have taken groups from 4 to 35, and nobody has been disappointed. Nestled in a beautiful valley, the farm is surrounded on all sides by green hills. Even though Nettlecomb is very easy to find (if you follow the instructions provided), being a short distance from Whitwell village there is very little sound of traffic, and you feel you have escaped the hustle and bustle. The farm buildings themselves are spacious and very well equipped. Despite being close together, each building is self-contained and has it's own private outside area, with BBQ provided, so you don't feel part of a holiday camp. Nevertheless there are extensive grounds with animals and a playground if you have children with you. The layout caters for anyone wanting a little peace and quiet, or a big party. There are also a number of well-stocked fishing lakes if that takes your fancy.

The owner's website says it all, and is a true representation of what you get, so I won't go on but recommend you have a look for yourself. Jose and Liz are very helpful if you have any questions.

It's great value for money. I would recommend Nettlecomb Farm to anyone, and will be visiting again very soon!!!

We have recently stayed at Nettlecomb Farm in Ventnor and have enjoyed a wonderful break. Being a large family (2 adults and 5 children) it is often difficult to find somewhere that comfortably accomodates us, but Nettlecomb farm have a number of properties that are more than spacious enough for us, and come with all of the "mod-cons" we have at home and so often expect to have to do without when travelling.
The facilities were first rate, the price extremely reasonable, the accomodations were spotless and having farm animals and a play area on the premises was great for our little ones.
I cannot recommend Nettlecombe farm highly enough, there should be a sixth star, wonderfull and thoroughly looking forward to another visit in 2013.

Stayed in heron. Lovely three bedroom place fully equipped with plenty of space and even books and toys available for those rainy days. Fishing lake fab (although my little one and his grandad both fell in... So be warned!) and the farm animals brilliant. Also plenty of spaces for football and other stuff. Would highly recommend a home from home!

We enjoyed our stay at Nettlecombe Farm in mid July 2012. We stayed at Corner Cottage, which was very well equipped for families (children's books, toys, cot, highchair, all kitchen utensils etc). The children loved visiting the playgrounds and seeing the animals on the farm. We had fresh eggs and there is lots to do on the Isle of Wight for little people (ours are 1 and 2 years old).

This was our first trip to Nettlecombe Farm when we stayed for a week in early July 2012
We chose Heron for our accommodation and were not disappointed!
Spacious rooms, comfortable beds,a well stocked kitchen and some nice touches including DVD's, games and reading material.
The views are breathtaking and even on a dull day it is so relaxing to overlook such beautiful scenery and rolling hills
There are some nice walks around the farm which our dogs loved and the well stocked lakes contain large shoals of fish of varying sizes which are very easy to catch.
Jose was very friendly without being at all imposing and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay
Needless to say we will be retuning as soon as we can
