    A hamper with goodies awaited our arrival The accommodation is set in an idyllic and peaceful location. Lovely walks. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Also there is a grand piano which my daughter and I had great enjoyment playing. Kitchen is very well equipped with cooking utensils and even a slow cooker. The accommodation is really comfortable and like being home from home. The washing machine and tumble dryer are not located in the accommodation but this is only a minor detail and didn't worry us at all. We would definitely return. Thank you Ann and Peter for making our holiday special

  • "The Coach House was a fantastic property and we had a wonderful stay on the Isle of Wight."

    The property is located in a great location; it's easy to get to almost anywhere on the island in just a short period of time, but it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle to provide a quiet space that is perfect for families. The coach house itself is clean and spacious and very well laid out for families, with two bathrooms and plenty of space. We particularly liked the outdoor barn with games area as this kept our kids entertained, even in wet weather - they were also very entertained by the resident cat, nearby horses and chickens. The owners could not have been more accommodating or welcoming, bringing us over freshly grown tomatoes from their garden and eggs freshly laid by their hens. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is pretty much perfect but the only room for improvement is the bed in the downstairs bedroom could be a more quieter and more comfortable, and also the TV often failed to pick up a signal and so we only had iPlayer. That said, I'm sure many people go on holiday to get away from such distractions (but just a note if you have kids and need to distract them!). From the cottage there are lots of nice walks and it's easy to drive a short distance to Ryde, Sandown or other places on the coast. We didn't our dog this time, but it's a very pet friendly property (although you'd probably want to keep a dog on the lead in the farm itself due to the cat/chickens!). We will definitely be returning here when we next return to the Isle of Wight. We had a wonderful stay and the location is great. We had friends staying at the same time who paid more than three times as much as we did, but our accommodation was better!

  • "We really enjoyed our lovely week in The Coach House."

    Very helpful and friendly owners, a beautifully decorated and very peaceful and relaxing property that was perfectly located fur exploring the island. Only minor issue was the downstairs bedroom bed was very squeaky making a noise every time you moved in the night. The grand piano was a bonus for our music student daughter. Would highly recommend a stay here!

    The games room a great hit with darts, table tennis and football. Lovely walks to be had and the children loved feeding the horses Lovely peaceful location but so central Robin Hill 5 minute drive, Ryde 10 minutes Blackgang 25mins. The village of Wotton Bridge 5 minute drive has tesco express and takeaways. If you want to avoid supermarket at this time we had a Morrisons delivery to The Coach House. Would happily stay again.

    The house has a true wow factor and was a treat to stay in. The owners were lovely and friendly and provided everything you would need and some lovely extra touches. We were with our 3 children and our dog, the space in the house was perfect. The surrounding gardens were safe and perfect for nosey children! They loved visiting the horses, chatting to the chickens and the resident cat was a hit with our youngest daughter. We will definitely be returning!

  • "The opportunity for children to roam around the farmyard and adjoining fields was a bonus."

    The children also liked ‘talking’ to the horses and the Hens that habitually turned up at mealtimes in the courtyard. An electric type shower in the upper bathroom would be a good idea , but not essential.
