A lovely homely cottage from which to explore the island with lots of personal touches throughout. Would definitely recommend

An amazing cottage with a beautiful view in a quiet relaxing spot. Highly recommended.

Remote, quiet, peaceful location that is a good central point for exploring the island.

A perfect little escape when it just needs to be the two of you!

Lovely barn conversion, well equipped and very comfortable.

Lovely cottage, great location and a friendly and supportive owners ( important in these Covid times).

It was the quietest place we have ever stayed in and a lovely area surrounded by country . The walks around the property were lovely too and the neighbours 'seemed friendly up their track. Liked the field of alpacas and horses too. We also had a present of cake and wine which was very sweet of them to leave us.I think you did an excellent job of marketing this property but the reality did not live up to expectations. The conversion we felt had been economically done - we live and work in converted barns so have some experience of them. We know they are draughty and dark so need good lighting/heating and windows.

Thanks for taking the time to review Little Barn Retreat. We've forwarded your suggestions regarding some lighting and heating to the owner for their consideration and we're pleased that you had a great stay overall. Bryony, Customer Support

Lovely barn very clean Outside area not in the evening sun nor very attractive Barn only really lit by artificial light

If these things don’t really bother you then it’s a perfect place for a break as it’s very quiet and well laid out,

Very well located, private and peaceful. Recommended as an option to near the beach/coast as its very central for getting to all locations on the island. Private under cover parking is a nice bonus.

Well equipped. Decoration of cottage rather sweet. Comfortable beds. Very warm.

Wouldn't stay here in the autumn/winter months.

Thank you for your comments. We're sorry that you had some trouble with some of the radiators and it's a real shame we hadn't been aware you were having problems as we could have sent someone round to help you. Little Barn Retreat has 2 electric panel heaters along with a lovely wood-burner as the heating source so we've forwarded your report to our colleagues on the island for their attention at the changeover - thanks for letting us know. Bryony, Customer Support

WiFi would be welcome. Location worked well for us but being unable to walk to a pub was a slight draw back. It was not the distance but the very busy road with no footpath

We're so glad that you enjoyed your break at this little Island bolthole. It really is perfect for some 'R and R' and we hope you'll come back soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Beautiful cottage in a rural location but close to the bus into Newport and Sandown. Certaintly has a wow factor. Perfect for a relaxing get-away.

Lovely quiet place, ideal to recharge your batteries!

A homely centrally located retreat that we would recommend to others

This Little Barn Retreat is unique, with peace and quiet in abundance. Although located just outside of Newport, it has a very nice rural feel. Newport is 10 minutes drive away and has many shops. The major supermarkets are located in and around the town.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
