The Dairyman’s Cottage
Sitting among several carefully renovated barns, the Dairyman’s Cottage is a beautiful Isle of Wight retreat.
The Dairyman’s Cottage has four bedrooms: three doubles en suite (can be turned into twins) and a twin room. There is also disabled access and a wet room. Downstairs there is an open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room. Outside there is a patio with BBQ, electric hot tub, large garden and parking.
Big enough to sleep the largest of families but equally cosy and welcoming; Tapnell Manor has recently undergone a major refurbishment bringing the interior into the 21st century while maintaining the rustic appeal of an old farmhouse.
Inside the house there are plenty of rooms for guests to spread out: a games room for the more active, and plenty of open fires for the more relaxed. The farmhouse has 10 bedrooms: 6 doubles, 1 triple, 1 twin, 1 family room with a double and twin and 1 nursery with cot and put up single. There is also 4 sofa beds- one in the lounge, 1 in a double room, 1 on a second floor landing and 1 in a downstairs walkway next to the wet room.
Other features include a welcoming kitchen with an Aga and a relaxed eating area, a conservatory with breathtaking views and a beautiful beamed dining room. Outside, in the enchanting garden there’s room to roam, with ponds, ornaments and a wide assortment of flora and fauna to entertain the greenest of fingers, plus an electric hot tub!
Other Accommodation on the outskirts of Tapnell Farm
Poachers Perch is one of the latest additions to the accommodation options at Tapnell Farm. It is an older style, family cabin, that has been newly renovated inside to create the perfect family bolthole for a relaxing holiday.
Fully insulated and heated, the Perch sleeps up to 6, and is available to rent for short or longer breaks all year round. It has all the amenities required for your stay, including an oven with hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and free wifi throughout the cabin.
