Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our time at the Dairy Barn. It
was the most relaxing week for us. The house was really lovely -
beautifully designed and decorated. Sally had made it most welcoming. We
loved seeing around the farm - Ross was so knowledgeable and seems to be
doing a fine job.
The highland cattle were most impressive. We enjoyed many lovely walks and
sea swimming too. All in all a great success,
New year 2019

We saw Badgers, Fox & Barn Owls in & around the garden & yard. The owner farms the land sensitively to improve Biodiversity we observed Badgers, Fox & Barn Owls amongst other wildlife close to the house during our stay. It was wonderful!
Great Base to Stay
8-17th June 2019
I just wanted to say how delighted we were with everything; the amenties, the peace & tranquilty, access to lcoal walks and villages and a great base to stay during the 3 day Newport festival. It will always be forever in our hearts too as on the Wednesday night, I chose the beautiful living room setting (whilst listening to remantic music on the supplied Bose) as the place to propose to my partner Ana (happily she accepted). We will return and we hope that Diary Barn and it’s very special location will be forever maintained in the marvellous way it is currently. Thank you and Mr Poland for making such a wonderful place available to holiday makers such as ourselves and for the amzing work he does to support the local wildlife and environment.

We stayed at this property with our Aunt and Uncle . Over many years we have stayed at many self catering cottages , this is without doubt the best we’ve stayed in . Comfort , cleanliness, location , space are all excellent . The manager Sally is friendly and very helpful . I can’t think of anything that was missing , or could have been done differently. Stay here , you will love it !

14 September 2018
We had a wonderful time exploring theIsle of Wight. Dairy barn was very well situated being located in a quiet country lane and within easy distance of most attractions. The surrounding gardens offered ample opportunity for relaxation. The dinning hall table was excellent for completing one of the several jigsaws that were available. All our needs were exceptionally well catered for, in particular a well equipped kitchen and all bedrooms being en suite. Thank you for a delightful stay.. Highly recommended.
Our Stay at Dairy Barn

We had a thoroughly relaxing stay at the Dairy Barn. Slept really well in the comfortable beds and tranquility of the country lane. The children particularly loved the garden. Sally is a very welcoming and helpful manager. It was our first visit to the Isle of Wight - plenty of opportunities for fresh air - walking, cycling and beaches. We will definitely be back again in future.

A wonderful quiet spot with many attractive walks within easy reach. We were blessed by great weather but I feel sure that we would have enjoyed a wet week just as much in such a beautiful spot. We will be back!!
Delightful property! 5*

The Dairy Barn is one of the few holiday properties we have stayed in which was as good as the photographs! It is really well designed and equipped and was a pleasure to stay at. While it is in a quiet location it is not cut-off at all. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.
Delightful, spacious, wonderfully equipped barn 5*
8 May 2015
Dairy Barn is a great place for a holiday. Wonderfully equipped, beautifully clean and very well looked after. It is spacious,warm, light and airy. We much appreciated the large table and padded bench in in the very ample sized kitchen. Much time was spent around it eating, drinking, talking, reading the papers and planning our day. We found the up to date information re local activities very helpful. We appreciated being met by the manager on our arrival and greatly enjoyed the alcoholic ‘Welcome pack’! We would thoroughly recommend this property to friends and family.
Escape to the Country
20 March 2015
Well maintained; superb accommodation; tastefully furnished and decorated; excellent facilities, and everywhere spotlessly clean. Sally Richards, the property manager if required but otherwise we had a free run as though the property was ours. We had one issue with the cooking range (our fault) and when we returned after reporting it, the problem was fixed in our absence. The pedigree cattle on site were fascinating, especially when it came to their bath-time! An amazing place to stay which we could not fault in any way.
Exxcellent holiday accommodation 5*
13 February 2015
We already knew this was a very high quality cottage because we have stayed on two previous occasions. Sally, the manager, is always very welcoming and friendly and the barn is immaculate in terms of cleanliness and quality of furnishings and facilities. It is a good location on the outskirts of Wroxall, near Ventor and on a bus route. We are sorry that it is not considered suitable for children The large garden is across a small road and has a stream on one side and the door of the barn opens into a parking area which is used occasionally by farm vehicles, but these are the only safety issues we can see. We have stayed in the barn as a base for walking holidays including walking round the coastal path using the bus services. it is a very comfortable place to return to after a 20 mile walk. We thoroughly recommend Dairy Barn and expect to return ourselves at sometime.

This should have a 6* rating
This is a fantastic place to stay. We felt right at home and being visited by the Manager and the owner, they were both very personable and gave us tips on where to visit. We were provided with tea, coffee and milk and what was a bonus was the homemade scones and jam.The property itself felt like it was brand new, because of the freshness, paint and decor. It had that old world charm that you would expect from a farmhouse, but nothing was tired and dated. It was roomy, beds were so comfortable and we had everything you could ask for. We would love to stay there again. I thought it was real value for money. Hearing the cows moo in the morning made you feel glad to see a new day in this fantastic property. We sat every morning and every evening in the courtyard. My only criticism was that there were no sun loungers as sitting on the wooden bench for a while was a bit uncomfortable. I would reccommend this property to all .
Very well equipped, in a lovely rural spot, but not far to go to Ventnor and Shanklin.
We have never been to such a well equipped, and well maintained, self-catering property. The only thing missing was a wok, everything else you can think of was provided. The whole property has been completed to a very high standard. It is in a lovely rural setting, on a working farm, mostly Highland cattle.
The converted barn contained just the right accommodation that we were looking for, and we highly recommend it.

Another lovely holiday our second visit. The cottage is so relaxing and as always it was fab to see the cattle. Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcome, it almost feels like a second home.

Having celebrated my 91st birthday at Dairy Barn, I must say, that it
was my happiest ever. Sorry that I didn't meet you in person Sally but
I must tell you how perfect your " housekeeping " is. We constantly
said....." they have thought of everything"---. During Sunday before
going out for my celebratory meal, I needed to wash some crockery, but
thought about splashing my dress--- wished I had a pinney.... then
thought" they have thought of everything" but surely not a pinney.
There in the cupboard was a brand new pinafore!! You are incredible.
Having spent 20 years on the Island, never before have I found it such a wonderful place to be.
Thank you Sally
