First visit to Isle of White. Booked accommodation through holiday lettings. Not disappointed the number 1 the Dairy a great place to stay. The cottage was excellent Nick and Kristina gave a nice welcome, hamper provided a nice gesture with basic items milk, bread, eggs, tea and sugar. Hot tub a bonus would highly recommend.

“Clean, spacious and comfortable.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Friendly welcome with a basket of goodies (including chocolate bunnies for the kids), quality cot & high chair provided, ample room for our family of 5, king sized bed a plus. The boys loved the bunk beds & hot tub and the washing machine & airer were well used. Yarmouth a lovely town with some super places to eat, we found the Bugle did a great Sunday roast. The dual ticket for Blackgang Chine & Robin Hill was fantastic, with a 7 day pass for one price and only a 30 min drive to each place too. We explored the local coast & found some lovely (uncommercialised) beaches. IOW is becoming an annual visit for us and we would definitely look to stay at the Dairy again.

“I love Wight”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband and I stayed at 1 The Dairy for a week from the 1st March 2014.

We were looking for an early break and chose the Dairy mainly because of the log burner and hot tub, knowing that at this time of the year the weather could be very cold and wet and so the property would always be a good, warm bolt-hole. It also looked cosy and modern from the photos.

The photos actually don’t do it justice. The whole property is very cosy, modern and attractive. The water was always hot and the heating excellent, even without the log burner. The main living / kitchen area are bright and well equipped. If we were picky, the only thing missing is a dishwasher.

The log burner is in the middle of the room and the TV is cleverly fixed to a beam on a bracket so it can swivel between the living area and kitchen. The master bedroom is accessed up a short flight of stairs by the kitchen, so it’s in the eaves which is nice and unexpected in a one-storey building. The mattress was really comfortable. The room has a dressing table, a wardrobe with drawers, and a quite big ensuite bathroom with a shower over bath. The children’s room has bunk beds and an ensuite toilet and sink, accessed off the living area end.

We used the hot tub once, you just have to lift off the lid and put it to one side (fairly easy to do) and turn on the jets. It was set to 38 degrees and has various very comfortable moulded seating areas. I think we would have used it more if the nights were lighter as the outside lighting is limited.

As to location, it’s in a lovely rural location. Easy to find on the first day. We really got into the local produce and being in a farm area helped, with eggs sold at farmhouse gates. There were road diversions all over the island due to resurfacing, especially after the recent bad storms, but we still got around easily.

Internet access and mobile phone signal are a bit behind the mainland at the moment. We didn’t have a signal at the cottage on 3G, and Kristina and Nick had to reset their WiFi router several times a day as broadband is limited, but they are working on getting a better internet connection as soon as it’s available. We appreciate you come on holiday to get away from the rat race but I thought it worth mentioning in case it’s an essential, like we found.

Also, the closest pubs are at least half an hour’s walking distance and so we drove on the nights we ate out. Again, if we’d been there later in the year when the nights are lighter, we probably would have walked into Yarmouth.

Overall we had a fantastic week which just proves that the IOW is a good bet even at this time of year, and staying at the Dairy was a big part of that. We were able to switch off and get into island life, which was the whole point. We would definitely recommend the Dairy as a great base to stay.

“Great cottage for the family”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed in 1 the diary for a weekend in Feb. we were blessed with a bit of sunshine which really helped but the best bit of the holiday was the accommodation. We were treated on arrival and given a welcome basket of bread, butter, milk, eggs, tea coffee etc which was such a lovely gesture.
The cottage was spacious enough for the 4 of us and the children had their own end with their own toilet which they loved! Grown ups weren't allowed in. Equipped with big tv, wifi, dvd and even a logburner we couldn't have asked for more. There's even a hot tub but we just didn't get a chance to make use of it.
The Isle of Wight has always treated us well and this break was no exception, good pubs, windy beaches and plenty of dinosaurs!

“Perfect stay Isle of Wight”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We have just returned from a fantastic week at 1 The Dairy, 2 adults & 2 children aged 10 & 12. We were given a warm welcome by Kristina & Nick & a lovely welcome pack, with tea, sugar, eggs from he farm next door, bread & a newspaper. The cottage was lovely, spotlessly clean, well equipped & is in a quiet, rural location, but close to Yarmouth. The beds were very comfortable, it was lovely & warm ( we went in February ) & the log burner was fabulous.
Even though it was February, we still enjoyed looking up a the stars from the hot tub after a day out.
We would highly recommend a stay at The Dairy & hope to return ourselves.
