Property Owner Reviewed by Wayne5.0★Nov 2023 "This property was absolutely pristine with everything very clean and comfortable." The kitchen was fantastic with everything you could want for a comfortable stay, from a very useful dishwasher to what looked like a brand new cooking range. The shower was fantastic and the addition of toiletries very welcome. The welcome pack and milk was a very welcoming touch. The back outside area was very pleasant and would have been used more had the weather been better. The owners are to be commended for the presentation of The Old Brewhouse and Piggery. We would highly recommend this property. We are so happy to read so many positive comments regarding your experience of staying here with us on the Island. It's good to know that you felt you had everything you could want for a comfortable & welcoming stay; from the amenities to the complementaries. We are also very grateful for your high recommendation, thank you! Property Owner Reviewed by Ronald5.0★Oct 2023 "This property is perfect for a getaway on the Island." The main places are very easily accessible by car or bus(stop literally 100m away) We walked to the needles from the property and got the bus back from Alum bay which was a great day out. The nearest pub again is right by the bus stop and serves nice pub food with friendly staff. The property itself was lovely Lucy was there when we arrived but after that on hand if we needed her. It is fitted to a high standard and immaculate throughout. A comfy bed, amazing shower and well equipped with everything you need to cook a meal, the washing machine was very handy too. We enjoyed the outside space and ate our breakfast and evening meals most days outside. We appreciated the welcome basket filled with local produce and a pint of milk in the fridge to get us started. After requesting a hairdryer Simon kindly went to the shops and one was provided with a couple of hours. It is obvious a lot of thought has gone into this property to make your stay a home from home. We would definitely recommend this for your stay. We are so grateful that you have taken the time to write such a comprehensive review; it will be very helpful to other guests wanting to get a feel for the locality and accessibility to Island attractions. We are also pleased to hear you found both the inside and outside spaces at the property made your stay a lovely home from home and thank you for concluding with your kind recommendation.

Property Owner Reviewed by Graham5.0★Sep 2023 "The Old Brewhouse and Piggery exceeded our expectations in every way." Five star!! The renovation (completed last year) of the old building is stunning with the interior design stylishly industrial (like something you’d see in a glossy coffee table magazine). Only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a hairdryer and a first aid kit. You could easily spend a week here totally relaxing without hardly leaving the property and its idyllic garden space!! Everywhere on the island was easily accessible by car. We will definitely be back at some point. Thank you Simon and Lucy for a wonderful week! Your five star comments are truly wonderful; it's a huge compliment to hear that you could easily spend a totally relaxing week without hardly leaving the property! We are also very happy to take onboard your valuable suggestion to provide a hairdryer and first aid kit, which will be organised as soon as possible - thank you...

Property Owner Reviewed by Jan5.0★Aug 2023 "I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the property to find a wonderful welcome pack with wine and produce from the Isle of Wight awaiting me." There was also milk in the fridge. Once settled, I also received a welcome text which reassured me that the owners were next door and on hand if there was anything I needed. The property was beautifully decorated, clean, modern with excellent facilities. I was particularly impressed by the shower, oven and outside area. I got the feeling that a lot of thought had gone into what is important to a holidaymaker even the position of plug points and lighting. It looked like a property you might find in a magazine highlighting how furnishing a holiday cottage should be done. It all contributed to a relaxing holiday. We are so pleased you enjoyed the Isle of Wight produce and reassured we were on hand should you have needed anything. To hear you say that our holiday cottage highlights how it should be done and contributed to a relaxing holiday is an amazing compliment, thank you. Property Owner Reviewed by Odiel5.0★Jul 2023 "We had a great 4 days at the Cottage - it’s spacious, beautifully decorated and the outdoor area is just lovely - a quiet sun trap." We we used the deck chairs on our sunny days and even sat happily outside under the covered terrace when it rained a little. We cooked a few times and had everything we needed in the kitchen, while the sofa and lounge area was perfect for a movie night in. Location wise, the cottage is very close to Yarmouth with lots of cafes and restaurants to try - and our favourite local attraction - the Needles. And also well located to zip to Cowes and the various castles / stately homes in under 30 minutes. There’s a good pub a few minutes walk up the road too. Excellent communication from the owners who messaged us to check all was well - we didn’t need to ask any questions but they were very friendly. We’d definitely come back another time - we felt quite fortunate to have booked the cottage and had a great time there. Thank you for sharing so many positive points about your accommodation, its location, local amenities and attractions, all of which will most certainly be of great help to other guests planning their holidays. We are so pleased you had a great time here and very much look forward to welcoming you back again to the beautiful Isle of Wight! Property Owner Reviewed by Julie5.0★Jul 2023 "A beautiful little property, clean tidy and well equipped." The garden is equally as good, a great place to sit out and relax in the evening, loved the fire-pit. With milk in the fridge, tea and coffee on the counter and a lovely basket of local produce (jams, mayonnaise, crackers and wine) for your arrival, you instantly feel welcome and at home. Simon & Lucy have certainly put a lot of thought and effort into the property to ensure that your stay is a great experience. We believe being warmly welcomed into your home from home plays an important part in making your holiday as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. If we can help to achieve this with the amenities and selection of complementaries offered, we are more than happy. Thank you for taking the time to post your review and including such lovely comments.

We really didn't want to leave! It has been beautifully converted into a fabulous cottage. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need for your holiday, including a welcome hamper of Isle of Wight goodies. The back garden is a great space to while away an hour or two. Lucy and Simon were quick to respond with any queries we had, but not intrusive. It was great to hear about some of the history of the building & farm from Simon. It's amazing to hear The Old Brewhouse & Piggery was perfect for you... however it could become a little crowded if everyone stayed? We are pleased you felt we were available should you need anything and found the history lesson of interest; he does like a 'yarn' but then he is a farmer ;-) Thank you for taking the time to post your comments, they are very much appreciated.

It somehow triumphantly pulls off an unlikely but inspired combination of upcycling and retro mixed with ultra modern conveniences. Once you’ve finished being wowed by the inside open the back door to a stunning rear courtyard complete with fire pit, barbecue and a great selection of dining and seating options. Brilliant hosts. Great location. Do not hesitate to book. We shall return! Wow... what truly amazing feedback, what more can we say other than, you should have written our listing! Thank you.
