“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tithe Barn. The accommodation is very comfortable and quiet and the view is superb with a large patio from which to enjoy it. The location is in the heart of the countryside but the beach and town of Ryde is 10 minutes away as is a large supermarket. Howard and Alison are very friendly and our little grandson loved the animals.

“Brilliant for Children! Location Location Location!”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Tithe Barn for the October Half term break. For the adults the view from the conversion is enough to satisfy anyone upon opening their eyes in the morning. Looking out at the downs, lake, sheep and watching the smoke from the steam trains at the bottom of the fields. The three bedrooms with en suites are of a good size, and the beds comfortable. There is everything you may need in the kitchen, I spotted dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tin foil etc, and as mentioned in other reviews Alison leaves a nice homemade cake, that my four year old was particularly taken with. If you need anything Alison and Howard are in the Farm House readily available to help if required.
For the Children every minute is a joy, from the moment my three boys got out of the car, (16, 4.5 and 2.5) the youngest spotted the pedal tractor, sheep, horses, slide and trampoline and they entertained themselves. The best thing for them though and what gave us great joy watching, was the horse and tractor ride. My youngest fell in love with the horse called Jasmine that gave them their ride, and they were also really chuffed that Jasmine was allowed in the garden with them. We were able to walk round to the barn to look at the cows and around the lake. (Since the boys have been home they have spoken about Jasmine a lot, and 'Howard's' big tractor). My 16 year old was able to have another flying lesson at Sandown Airport during our stay at Tithe Barn, which if this interests you, is very cheap compared to the Mainland.
This was our first visit to Tithe Barn (having not discovered it previously). When visiting the Island we normally stay in Shanklin or Brightstone dependant on the time of year. The location of Tithe Barn although being rural itself, is only a five minute drive to the Tesco Superstore and Ryde. Haven Street Railway is only a short drive away, and other attractions. Nowhere is too far to get to on the Island anyway, I have been coming to the Island since I was born and by far the best attraction on the Island for children (and young at heat adults) is Black Gang Chine (the oldest theme park in the world). They manage to reinvent themselves all the time to stay current, but still have the old magical charm, we drove there the first night of our stay, to see the illuminated animatronic dinosaurs.
As for Tithe Barn, I have already recommended Tithe Barn and Little Upton Farm to friends and have myself already booked to return next year, need I say more?!

“Wonderful holiday to make special memories”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Would Little Upton Farm be as wonderful as the reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor....it certainly was!
We stayed in Tithe Barn, everything you need is provided and Alison makes a superb cake. Lovely views and v comfortable beds.
Our 7 year old daughter was up early with the ducks and whizzing around the farm on a little pink bicycle ( selection of bikes and scooters left in the barn for visitors) in her onesie and wellingtons to check on the horses each morning.
Location was perfect for us the difficulty was leaving the farm......we had one day of torrential rain which gave our son the opportunity to learn how to light the fire and an afternoon of toasting marshmallows soon followed.
Days out were great and late afternoons we would often see Alison and join her to watch her training her two young sheepdogs. What a treat to have Jasmine the pony arrive on Friday morning to take our daughter out for a much longed for ride and then Howard took our son out on the tractor and an awesome ride on the quad bike.
Looking forward to ou return visit.

“Solicitous hosts,comfortable beds ,wonderful views, what more could you want?”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The property was conveniently situated and easy to find with breathtaking views from the sitting room and downstairs bedroom. The hosts Alison and Howard were attentive and helpful and were anxious that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I travelled with my 90 year old mother and the downstairs bedroom and shower room were ideal for her reduced mobility. The property was well equipped and comfortable and we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I cannot say enough good things about our stay in Tithe Barn - one of the self catering cottages available on the Little Upton Farm. The cottage itself was beautifully presented, cosy and welcoming with a breathtaking view that I just couldn't get enough of. But besides that, Alison and Howard went out of their way to make us comfortable - providing very welcome little extras for our two young children (5 and 2 years of age) such as a slide, pony and tractor rides (this was a very big deal for our little ones - pure excitement!), ping pong tables etc. Also, the location of the farm is brilliant - you are very near to Ryde (where the ferry from Portsmouth comes in) with its shops and restaurants, cafe's etc and close to a wide range of activities but you are also in the middle of the most beautiful countryside. We had a truly memorable stay and are already planning our return trip.
