Self catering holiday cottage on the beautiful Isle of Wight

The Little Barn – a spacious, comfortable, holiday cottage on the beautiful Isle of Wight

It is an ideal holiday cottage for families or couples looking for a peaceful get-away surrounded by nature. You can kick back and relax or visit the many attractions the Isle of Wight has to offer – you choose!

We can also help you to get the best possible ferry fares to the Island (a must these days!).

The cottage sits amongst 2.5 acres of garden, surrounded by farmland and dedicated National Landscape (previously called an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and provides spacious, light and well equiped accommodation.

We (Susan and Richard) have worked hard to give The Little Barn that home-from-home feel and keep it to a high standard.

We do our best to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All our cleaning products are eco-friendly with refillable bottles. The building has both Solar Panels and Ground Source heating providing heating and electricity.

The Little Barn is a pet free, no-smoking building so suitable for people with allergies or eczema.

You can easily reach the unspoilt beaches of Compton, Brighstone Bay and Brook by car. Or, you can walk along local footpaths to the coast right from the front door.

The cottage is right next to the Round The Island Cycle Route and there are many other trails to explore. You can hire bikes locally or bring your own.

Put simply, The Little Barn is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life with easy access to all the activities and entertainment the Isle of Wight has to offer.
