The wildlife area encourages a wide range of flowers, birds and animals. The island is a great place to holiday with beaches, historic buildings, good walking and cycling, watersports, paragliding and many other tourist attractions.

We loved our weeks stay here. The location was perfect for reaching all the sites on the island, and a relaxing stay after a busy days activities. The house was perfect for our family of four and the garden a very welcome relaxing distraction for us and the children. The house is clean, functional and gave us everything we needed. The additional wet room downstairs was perfect for showing off children after a messy day at the beach too. I will miss the 360 views of the countryside. A perfect break for us.

We had an amazing stay at the little barn it was lovely and spacious for us and our two children and right off the beaten track which is what we love so a really peaceful and beautiful location. Everything you need for a home to home stay no need to take anything with you apart from your essentials as everything is there for you. Especially liked the extra touches such as garden games for the children. We hope to return in the future

As others have commented, The Little Barn is fantastic. Set in a great rural location it made such a change to our normal urban lifestyle at home. More than spacious (the name belies the truth), well equipped and faultless in it's cleanliness. Susan was able a great help in helping us obtain a travel discount with the ferries and we enjoyed a warm welcome at The Crown Inn, Shorwell and great food at The Cow Co., Tapnell Farm, both of which she recommended to us too. A great stay and we will definitely be back.

The Little Barn is an excellent base to explore the west coast of the Isle of Wight. Very nice, clean and well equipped property with scenic views in every direction. It is ideal for families with kids but also for a quiet break away from it all.
