We've been to Farringford every summer for the last seven years and can't imagine a summer without staying at this amazing place. Set in tranquil grounds complete with an outdoor swimming pool and 10 hole pitch and put course not to mention a lovely garden restaurant, what's not to love? The peace and quiet it the main draw as well...

Very well appointed one bedroom flat in the converted stables of one time Lord Tennyson's home. We have stayed at the Farringford through three changes of ownership, it is a beautiful spot. The present owners are making sweeping changes to the facilities available. No golf next year! However we have booked again for 2017

I stayed in Stable Cottage No 4 with my husband and two young children, I was a little unsure as to what to expect as you can't always be sure from pictures - but upon arrival we were delighted, the cottage was exceptionally clean (Not even a crumb in the toaster). There was a very generous welcome pack of Bacon,...

We stayed in the Stables as a family of 4 in September 2015 and loved it. However, upon our return in August 2016 we had an addition to the family, so we decided we needed more bathrooms and so booked a 2-bed Alfred Cottage for 3 nights. Once again we had a really nice stay. I was a little worried...

The staff at Farringford we're superb. We received excellent service which included them booking our ferry and saving us money, phoning in the morning of our stay to say the cottage as ready so we could head straight over and arriving to a welcome pack of local bacon, bread, eggs and milk. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. They...

We have stayed in 2 of the stable cottages, 2 and 4, and found both to be spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The welcome pack even includes fresh eggs and bacon! We have stayed in Oct and Feb, both times arriving on very cold days, but both properties were warm and cosy on arrival. I probably prefer the...

We stayed at a Farringford cottage with our dog. The staff are lovely and the walks around the main house are just brilliant. There is a good walk to the Tennyson monument and along to the needles which takes about 3 hours in total. Although we did have a major head wind so we could have taken a lot longer...

Farringford was recommended as a good place to stay and was dog friendly so we gave it a try on a 2 night stop over on the Island. We stayed in the stable cottages and were impressed by the cleanliness and roominess of the cottage. The welcome pack of milk, bacon, eggs, bread and butter was extremely good and most...
