  • "Me and my partner stayed at the little worsley for the Isle of Wight takeover 2024 this was the perfect stay and had everything we needed and was very quirky it also had a private driveway which as car enthusiasts put our minds at ease as we didn’t have to worry about the car being on the road!"

    There was a selection of games which I think is what is needed in this day and age for quality time together instead of phones !!!! There was a lovely welcome pack with chocolates and beers ! There was also a lovely little garden area you could sit outside in ! Being a 50s theme and being a 20 year old I wasn’t sure I’d be keen but I can most certainly say it’s converted me and gave me ideas for my own space ! I couldn’t fault the place perfect for one night or 7 ! I could’ve stayed there a lot longer to be honest lovely place in nice area ! Perfect for staying with a show or holiday or both ! Had everything and more ! Hopefully I’ll be returning for takeover 2025 ! I also recommend the donkey sanctuary which was 2 minutes away from the worsley was a brilliant day out spent a good few hours there !

  • "Great little place, quirky and cute."

    Well appointed with everything you needed and more! It was an absolute treat to go off to bed in the shepherd's hut. Super comfy bed and again beautifully decorated. Loved the games and enjoyed some colouring too! Great location for easy access for visiting all the sights. Gorgeous energy, sure we will be back.

    Thank you so much for wonderful feedback !! You will be very welcome to return !! Property Owner

  • "What an absolute joy it was to open the door to little Worsley and see the sparkling interior and the colourful, obviously very carefully selected items that made it a welcoming abode."

    It’s position in Wroxall made it so convenient for my time spent at the Donkey sanctuary which is within walking distance and on the Number 3 buss route. Between “Appuldurcombe” and “cooks castle” stops. It is just a short walk to worsley drive, handy if you do not bring your car. The icing on the cake was the Shepherd’s Hut. So lovely and such scrumptious bedding, it was a real pleasure and experience to retire to the hut each evening. One of my life long ambitions to stay in a shepherds hut! I hope to return one day. Everything you could ever want was supplied by Jane and Brian. Thank you so much and for our enjoyable conversations.

  • "Very happy indeed with our stay at the shepherd's hut and annex."

    A lot of effort had been made to make us feel welcome. All the Christmas touches were especially appreciated. Great WiFi, smart tv and 2 digital radios, along with plenty of heating and an extremely comfortable bed, made our stay a pleasure from beginning to end. Highly recommended.

    We are so happy you both enjoyed your stay over the Christmas period …. Our aim is to give our guests the best experience possible. Thank you for looking after the hut and annexe so well … top guests ! Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was very warm and cosy."

    We found the space too small two adults. The level of cleanliness was extremely good. The hob took ages to heat up it then retained heat so it could cook food turned off. Bed reasonably comfortable as were the armchairs which were recliners. The TV on the wall isn't something we like as we both have arthritis in our necks. The listing was inaccurate and the accommodation had been changed around since we booked in May, had we have known we would have cancelled. Sykes should have updated us of this. The last time I checked, 6th October the listing was still saying the shepherd's hut was the lounge. It didn't totally spoil our holiday but it was listed as all on one level not the fact that there are four steps up into the shepherd's hut where the bedroom is now located, not good when you need the loo at 3am.

    We are sorry that Sykes did not update you on the change around of the accommodation following your booking and we understand a shepherds hut is not for everyone. Lots of our guests have loved the whole shepherds hut experience. We do provide dressing gown’s (umbrellas in both the hut and the annexe in case it rains !) and there is outside lighting on the hut and the annexe which is only a few steps way. Our absolute aim is to give all our guests the best holiday experience possible in our quirky well equipped accommodation. It was lovely meeting you both and we hope you enjoy the complementary bubbly on your upcoming wedding anniversary Property Owner

  • "We received a very warm welcome from the owner who was very approachable and easy to communicate with."

    A glitch with the heating was swiftly dealt with and we appreciated the unexpected complimentary wine. The facilities were well thought out and beautifully presented. Touches like the “hug” cushions were genius for sitting up comfortably in bed watching TV. My only problem was that the blinds didn’t block out enough light for me and, more importantly made privacy not quite complete. This could be resolved by changing to curtains or having a full length curtain wall to wall that could block off the front door and windows and also add to the coziness. If that was resolved I would definitely come back.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! We now have the shepherds hut in situ in addition to Worsley Annexe so if you do stay with us again you will have additional space. Thank you for the feedback regarding the blinds, we have taken your advice and wall to wall curtains are now in place in addition to the blinds ! Property Owner

The property

Settled in the peaceful village of Wroxall, a stone’s throw away from the rugged south coast of the Isle of Wight, rests this wonderful single-storey bolthole, Litltle Worsley and The Shepherds Hut.

Framing magnificent countryside views toward Appuldurcombe House and enjoying an open-plan layout, Little Worsley and The Shepherds Hut makes an excellent setting for a romantic retreat for two.

Stepping inside, be charmed by the snug interior of this lovely abode; presented in a studio-style layout, look forward to rustling up a romantic meal for two with use of the pint-sized kitchen and tuck-in at the breakfast bar idyllically positioned in the window.

Take time out to put your feet up and relax in the comfort of the quirky, traditionally-styled shepherds hut, perfect for retreating outdoors and spending some time listening to the birds chirping.

Carry the conversation and perhaps an evening tipple with you to a seat outside on your private, front patio before catching up on your favourite show from the comfort of the covers.

In the morning, relish a rinse under the shower head before wandering out to explore more of the Isle of Wight.

Immerse yourself in history with a tour of the 18th-century Appuldurcombe House, once famed as the grandest house on the Isle of Wight.

Lace up your walking boots and follow a network of walking trails to the summit of the nearby Ventnor Downs, famed as the highest point on the island.

Those looking for a more relaxing experience can head for the glorious sands of Ventnor Beach; take a break from doing the cooking and dine out at one of the delicious eateries on offer in Ventor.

Animal lovers will delight with a visit to the Isle Of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, where visitors can come face-to-face with rescued or abandoned donkeys and ponies or adopt one of their own!

Be sure to visit the popular seaside resort of Shanklin to soak in the sunshine at Small Hope Beach, go head-to-head at Pirates Cove & Jurassic Bay Adventure Golf or wander through the immaculate landscaped grounds of Rylstone Gardens.

With so much to see and do on the Isle of Wight, choose Little Worsley and The Shepherds Hut as your base for an unforgettable holiday.

About the location

WROXALL

Ventnor 1.5 miles; Shanklin 3 miles

This pretty village sits just two miles from the south coast of the Isle of Wight, Wroxall itself along with the surrounding area offers something to suit every taste. In the village there is a well-respected gastropub, The Star Inn, as well as a convenience store. Here you can also find a Donkey Sanctuary to experience something different. Hidden away in acres of stunning woodland is the Appuldurcombe House, a historical landmark well worth a look. The seaside resort of Ventnor is just a short drive away and offers everything that you could ask for from a range of fabulous amenities, stunning botanical gardens and a sandy beach for you to enjoy. You can reach here, and nearby Shanklin by bus from Wroxall itself. The whole of the island is easily accessible by car as it is only around 25 miles wide, meaning that you can visit the Isle of Wight AONB and the Hamstead Heritage Coast with ease for your dose of fresh country air.
