Good quality cottage, well furnished and equipped in a very quiet and secluded setting.
We booked Corner cottage with 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 2 en suites for a repeat visit with our family.
There is a new BBQ and large outside wooden table and chairs.
Parking for 2 cars is beside the property.
There are 2 good children's playgrounds set amid a range of animals pens. You are invited to help feed the animals during the morning farmer's round.
There are also 3 large fishing lakes on the farm.
There is a casual booking in system with the cottage open when you arrive.
Slight moans include the squeaky wooden floors, some mould smells in the downstairs cupboards and no wifi.
Nearby is Blackgang Chime park with a range of activities and a free return or 7 days. The new dinosaur interactive displays have just opened.
We also visited the Needles park with its famous sands, glass blowing and sweet making displays.
There are lots of opportunities to get up close with animals- Amazon world, Sandown zoo, Owl and Monkey Haven and Coleman's Farm.
There is wifi in the White Hart in Niton, Spyglass Inn Ventnor, the Met restaurant Ventnor, Bugle pub Yarmouth ( which also has great food and good service next to the Lymington to Yarmouth ferry).
Also recommended for good value family dining is the Hare and Hound pub.
Nettlecombe has a range of cottages with various bedrooms but all have the peaceful setting and family friendly style.
