Just back from our 7th stay at Little Upton Farm and 4th in The Cote which is fast becoming a home from home. There's plenty of room for a family of 4 and all the necessities are taken care of. Excellent wifi for those who need it on their holidays! Alison and Howard are very welcoming hosts and this year the children got to drive the tractor round the farm with Howard's help. There is also a big trampoline, table tennis and bikes to keep them busy. The Farm is ideally located with about a 10 minute drive to Fishbourne ferry terminal from where Wightlink sail to Portsmouth and about 10-15 mins from a Tesco extra which will have everything you have forgotten to bring. Even to the Needles at the far west of the island is only about a 45 minute trip. Great beaches at Appley and Yaverland are also close and there are plenty of National Trust and English Heritage site around too. We love it on the farm and will be back in the Cote next year

Stayed for a weekend shortly before Christmas with our chocolate Labrador, whilst catching up with family on the Island.
The accommodation was excellent ~ "bungalow style" (just a few steps leading to the bedrooms, both of which are en-suite, and have a gate on the steps), with a spacious open plan living area. We were welcomed with a home made cake as well, which we just about managed to finish before departure.
There is a fully enclosed courtyard, and this is also fenced before leading to an additional area, which has a small lawn ~ it was therefore ideal for ourselves, as our dog could not roam the farm at will, although we were able to explore a few of the fields with him ... but he was also fortunate enough to receive a "welcome pack" of towels and dog biscuits!!
If you are looking for quality accommodation, literally in the middle of nowhere (but also seeming only ten minutes from almost everywhere), this would be a perfect choice.
