Homelea is easily accessible from Yarmouth ferry (20 minutes) and set in the lovely village of Brightstone. The house is pretty with a beautiful garden.
Mike and Helen made us feel at home straight away and nothing was too much trouble. As there are only two rooms, service is very personal and they told us about the island and gave us plenty of leaflets and help.
If you like the Isle of Wight the you will love Homelea it is only 20 minutes to Carisbrooke, 30 to Cowes and the east coast of the island.
I nearly forgot, the breakfasts were delicious as well!!
We had decided at the last minute to spend the bank holiday weekend cycling on the Isle of Wight. Mike & Helen could not have been more welcoming. There are 2 B&B rooms. We stayed in the ensuite room which has the added benefit of a small lounge with tea & coffee facilities. Bathroom compact with shower/hip bath. Bed very comfortable, although the sun came shining through the curtains at 5am and the nearby rook colony were very vocal. Great breakfast which can be taken indoors or out in their beautiful garden. Highly recommended.
The only downside is the nearest place to eat is up and down more hills. 5 mins in a car but tough on a bike after a long day & not really walkable in the dark as the road is unlit.
Situated in a beautiful and peaceful location in the heart of Brighstone village. Homelea BB is spotlessly clean with lovely decor, but what makes your stay perfect is Mike and Helens friendly and welcoming greeting and company . We had a full English breakfast which was tasty and hearty. If you prefer something simpler like preserves, toast , fruits and cereals all are catered for, nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed at many varied BBs on the iow and this one is one of the best . The property and garden ( totally jealous) has that beautiful homely charm I didn’t want to leave. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable. Could not have enjoyed our stay anymore than we did. Try it you’ll love it ! Sue and David - Hornchurch Essex
Thanks again Mike and Helen for another amazing visit. As usual we were looked after amazingly well from Mikes superb fried veggie breakfast and fresh fruit to the help and advice about where to go and what to eat.
We will be back
The perfect location in the beautiful West Wights AONB and its prettiest village adjacent to the famous Dinosaur coast. In their lovely home, Mike and Helen will ensure your stay is entirely comfortable and relaxing with their warm hospitality and attention to detail. You will feel 'at home' straight away. Nothing is too much trouble. Their local knowledge will be invaluable to those who want to really explore either the larger attractions - Osborne House, Tennyson's home etc, or the little nooks and crannies the Island has in abundance. You will want to return.
We stayed here to be near friends who could not accommodate us. Homelea is one of the best b & b's in which we have ever stayed. The accommodation was clean, attractive and very comfortable. We appreciated the afternoon cake and fresh milk in our room! Mike and Helen are perfect hosts - nothing is too much trouble, even getting up to serve us breakfast for an early start on New Year's Day! The breakfasts were delicious and healthy options were available.
We stayed in the en-suite room which was very comfortable.Lots of nice touches like home made biscuits.We were made very welcome by Michael and Helen.The room overlooks a beautiful peaceful garden and the downs behind.Handy for the village (a bracing 10 minute walk) a great breakfast and a good nights sleep - what more could one want ? Even the dog was welcoming!
