"Perfect place to relax and entertain children !…"
Perfectly situated in beautiful countryside, coming to the farm has been both relaxing and fun for all ages. The children love the animals and the adults love the walks and the peace and quiet ! The accommodation is clean spacious and comfortable. I've booked a stay in October with my elderly parents as I know they'll love it also. Can't wait too go back !Read moreLess
"Idyllic countryside setting for all the family to enjoy…"
I was fortunate enough to stay at Nettlecombe farm with my family to celebrate my 40th birthday last July. We stayed in a cottage that was big enough to also house our friends and their children. The weather was stunning and it was simply beautiful to wake up to all the animals and enjoy the picture book countryside from our terrace. The children helped "Farmer John" to tend to the animals and then played in the play area before breakfast "al fresco". We then walked around the farm before taking a boat trip off ventnor harbour (ocean blue charters) and indulging in a swim to the shore. The facilities at the farm are faultless and the management highly accommodating to any needs you have......we definitely plan to return soon! Thank you nettlecombe for a perfect 40th birthday.Read moreLess

"Best Family location on the Isle of Wight…"
Just a ferry ride across from the mainland, fabulous self catering cottages set in beautiful rural farm land, minutes from Victorian Ventnor and the sea. Children are safe to explore the farm, visit animals, and play in the playground. All cottages furnished to very high standard and would highly recommend for weekend breaks or longer holidays at any time of year. So much to explore nearby with the sanctuary of returning to the farm or eating at the local village pub which never disappoints.Read moreLess
"Just perfect for ALL ages...…"
We stayed in Corner Cottage at Nettlecombe Farm for half term and cannot recommend it enough.
The highlight was the daily farm feeding experiences with Farmer Jon, which was thoroughly enjoyed, but not just the kids but also by the adults which included grandparents!
Every morning we were able to feed the animals and collect eggs, our favourites were Comet & Dancer the Reindeer.
Corner cottage is very comfortable and has everything you could ever ask for, even down to a garlic press and wifi.
Even though some of the attractions were not open during February we still found loads to do, and it is great to get the kids outside in the fresh air and exploring the beaches in wellies.
We loved it so much that we have booked again for the summer.Read moreLess

"All you could ever need...…"
Fantastic for children and adults. Great apartments, fab views. So many animals to visit and pet, especially love George & William, the 2 alpakas. Dogs also welcome. All you need for a fantastic holiday on the Isle of Wight. I would recommend the farm for old and young alike.Read moreLess

"A fantastic holiday for both children AND parents…"
Nettlecombe Farm was recommended to us and we have stayed twice - once as a family and the second time with friends. The accommodation is immaculately clean and each property provides everything you could need for a self-catering holiday. The children loved the three play areas and made regular use of each. They helped feed the animals in the morning which they loved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nettlecombe to any family and dogs are also welcome.Read moreLess
