We just enjoyed a fabulous holiday at 1 Manor Farm Cottages. This was the 13th year running that we holidayed in self-catering accommodation with my in-laws and we all reckon that this was a contender for the best property we have ever stayed in.
It helped that the weather was kind to us all week, but from the moment of our arrival it was clear that we’d chosen a homely property with everything that we could need or imagine to make our stay a pleasant one.
We didn’t even get to use the log burner or the air fryer, but these and many other mod cons are there should you need them.
The décor is modern, appliances are new and the beds are super comfortable. There is space around the kitchen table, in the lounge, or outside in the spacious garden to enjoy each other’s company or to find a quiet place to read etc. We used the garden to play a bit of boules and a bit of football, as well as enjoying its sheltered ‘sun trap’ qualities for afternoon and evening drinks and a BBQ.
As a base, the cottage is well positioned for trips to most of the island. Ventnor is on the doorstep and as well as being good for its shops (small supermarket, excellent F&C, butcher, fresh fish) and beach Ventnor is a gateway to the very quiet SW coast and western parts. Equally, Shanklin, Sandown and Newport are only a comparatively short drive away. Best of all, the cottage is in a quiet location on a no-through road, with direct access to footpaths that will take you up onto and around the downs, with stunning views over Shanklin and Ventnor. Stenbury Down is another short walk away and gives panoramic island views. The walk over Boniface Down to Ventnor is also beautiful and the excellent island bus services will bring you back from Ventnor to the end of the lane.
I am a runner and valued access to the 3½ mile disused railway track to Shanklin, too; a level route among all these picturesque hills! Our week saw us visit many places around the coast including Tennyson Down & the Needles, Brading Roman Villa, beautiful Bonchurch, beaches at Freshwater Bay, Compton, Shanklin and Ventnor, St Helens / Bembridge… and a highlight was viewing red squirrels at Alverstone Mead; all within easy reach by car. Our host (Kim) proved welcoming and flexible, with friendly comms around our arrival and departure. I can wholeheartedly recommend the cottage!

1 Manor Farm Cottage was so comfortable, cosy and well provided that it was on a different level. Everything had been thought of from a comprehensive welcome basket for the humans to delicious dog treats and even spare dog beds. The whole house was immaculately presented and a joy to stay in. We’d love to holiday there again and the dogs can’t wait to go back.

We are a family of 6 and a dog, we stayed a week at 1 Manor farm cottage, it has everything you could want in a great location with country walks on your door step. The cottage is very cosy and extremely well equipped. The host was extremely helpful both prior to and during our stay.

A fantastic property to stay in - beautiful house, gorgeous furnishings, everything you’d possibly need for your stay and more! There wasn’t anything that hadn’t been thought of. A yummy hamper for us on arrival and treats for the dogs. Even tags for the dogs with the house details on. A fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, great set up for outside dining. Secure garden for the dogs. Great position on a no-through road, lovely and peaceful. Highly recommended.

A really lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and the little touches and extras were a truly lovely touch. Close to Ventnor and easy access to Shanklin. A great week away here. Would love to visit again.

We were made very welcome and the owner, Kim, had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. In fact with the welcome hamper, and excellent facilities at the cottage we could not have wished for more. The location of the cottage was ideal for us as we could explore local bridleways and footpaths from the door. The cottage is a short walk away from local facilities (pub and store) we did not feel isolated at all. We had an excellent week, in beautiful surroundings, with everything and more to hand. I would highly recommend a stay at this delightful cottage.

I have to say that this is probably one of the best holiday let’s that I have ever stayed in. Everything has been thought of in meticulous detail. A beautiful welcome hamper on arrival, dog treats and dog tags and items left in the cupboards to make your stay easier without having to shop for them eg cooking oil, salt and pepper, honey salad cream, all so thoughtful . The beds are amazingly comfortable and the location is tranquil and beautiful. Lastly the hostess is lovely and so helpful, such a pleasure to deal with. I can’t recommend this place enough although I would have loved to keep this as my own little gem of a find. Excellent!!!!!!!
