Newtown, Isle of Wight, England
Locks Farm forms the major part of the farmhouse that serves the farm. The home 'oozes' character with features like the natural brick 'Inglenook' fireplace found in the lounge, beamed ceilings, the farmhouse kitchen and 'quirky' little features found around the home. The site on which Locks Farm is situated is steeped in history, with Roman remains below and the property resting on Norman foundation stones. If local history is of interest, then just have a chat with the owners when you arrive - their family have been living in the area since 1795!

The accommodation is arranged over three floors. It is entered by the enclosed porchway which leads into the lounge. This is a very characterful room featuring an 'Inglenook' fireplace complete with log burner and beamed ceiling. The kitchen is another lo...

I am so glad that I chose Locks farm for our family holiday.
The owner gave us a very warm welcome, complete with homemade cake, fresh bread, fruit juice, fresh farm eggs, a pot of jam and milk.
The house had been thoughtfully equipped to cater for all ages with everything you would need, it was spotlessly clean and freshly decorated.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. Wonderful.

The directions given to the property were spot on and was easy to find. We had a very warm welcome from the owner, Richard, (lovely man and family) When we walked into the house, we were overwhelmed with the charm and character and everything was so spotless and clean. We were left welcoming drinks and home made cake. Richard and family were so obliging and were always on hand. I could not find any faults with this place, quiet location on a working farm, easy travelling to towns, beaches and attractions. I can without any hesitation recommend this property.
