Even though property is in a village, the ease of access to anywhere on the island is excellent. The hosts were gracious, professional and very helpful. The property is beautifully presented and very clean with great attention to detail with practical items provided eg washing tablets. We didn't need to purchase anything except food. The area around the village is teaming with fantastic walks and stunning views.

The cottages were tired and in desperate need of updating. Photos online look to be 10 years old. The mattresses particularly in orchard & dairy were AWFUL!! So much so that some of our party went home early through lack of sleep. We had to swap mattresses from cottage to cottage to ensure SOME sleep. Blinds broken, doors not opening. Not very clean. This is overpriced for what we received. We would not stay here again

Wonderful hosts and a very family friendly environment. We had another wonderful holiday, thank you.

Blake’s Barn is in a quiet location, surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are few farm animals, pigs geese and hens. The kitchen area was a bit small. The master bedroom is on a mezzanine level, so quite hot in summer, as heat rose up from the kitchen area. The owners were friendly, and Mike gave some helpful suggestions for places to visit.

We had a nice stay here. The weather was fab! The grounds and barn could probably do with an overhaul to spruce it up. Well used and getting tired. Guy who owned it was friendly too. Easy to get to other parts of IOW.

A nice characterful property in need of some updating inside. The wood burner is a bonus and works wonderfully.
In a delightful location and within easy reach of Freshwater and Yarmouth.
We were very disappointed with the cleanliness on arrival, especially with the extra cleaning that is necessary in relation to Covid-19.

Lovely westerly I.O.W location, pretty village and very peaceful. Great outdoor space for kids of all ages to enjoy at Mattingly Farm. The Property’s were perfectly adequate, a little TLC would make them perfect!
MRS LLOYD July 2019
A lovely relaxing barn conversion with an abundance of character. We only stayed one week but could have easily stayed longer home from home comfort.
Mrs Cakebread June 2019
Lovely Place. Made to feel welcome. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Lovely to be able to feed the pigs. And just watch and play with the animals. Very clean and well equipped. Fantastic stay.
