Your Next Getaway is Waiting for You Here

About our Hillside Farm

Hello, we are the second generation to own Hillside Farm, a non working farm located on the outskirts of Niton in a very rural area on the Isle of Wight.

We have stunning walks outside the two accommodations for walkers and dog owners.

We do run a private beauty and well being salon from the site offering various treatments including holistic massage treatments. Please see our website if any of this is of interest to you and contact us before arrival to discuss what’s currently available www.iwbeauty.co.uk

We have two beautiful properties for you to choose from, each is unique and both offer the opportunity of a relaxing break. 

  • We keep various animals at Hillside Farm and during your stay you will have the opportunity to meet them.
  • Our farm is home to lots of wildlife due to our rural and peaceful location.
  • We support the local flora and fauna as much as we can.
  • We try to live in a sustainable and eco friendly manner
  • Dog friendly, no need to leave your dogs at home

"We had a wonderful time here! It's such a little gem. Sharon and her husband are so friendly and helpful, and the welcome book they've put together has so many good recommendations, we particularly loved the list of all the dog friendly places to go! Accommodation was spotless and had more than enough amenities, even ones we never expected to have! It also has a great area with ponies, chickens and a little play area for kids. Whilst in fairly secluded lane, it was a great location, you could see all the stars and it was so peaceful, and not far from the town at all, or some beautiful walks. The Easter gift bag was a lovely touch too! Thank you so much, when we next head to IOW we will be sure to look for Sharon's accommodation again!"

"The Retreat at Hillside Farm was the perfect place for us all to truly relax and unwind from our hectic day jobs and school! The cottage is set in a beautiful, quiet hillside location with stunning views and is equipped with everything you could need - and more! Sharon and John (and not forgetting Pippa) were amazing hosts and shared lots of ideas of places to visit including the numerous beaches, pubs for great food and drink, walks and not forgetting the best ice cream parlour on the Island - Crave in Ventnor! We simply ran out of time to visit everything and we loved it so much that we have already re-booked for 2 weeks next year to stay in their newest dwelling."

"Hi Sharon, really good few days on the Island, your property was ideal for us, thanks for everything, we found the coffee stop at the Ferry port - good recommendation."

"It is a great place in every sense: good location, nice hosts, nicely decorated place with everything you need and cute animals at the farm. We especially loved the trampoline and Wendy House full of toys 🙂 if we come back to the Isle of Wight we will definitely stay there again. thank you."

"Beautiful holiday home in a peaceful location. Our hosts made us welcome and were on hand for advice about directions/suggestions for places to go. Our toddler loved the play area and being able to say hello to the animals. Would thoroughly recommend!"

"Thank you Sharon! We had a fantastic time and I couldn’t fault our stay at all. Extremely clean and tidy, ideally situated for Black Gang Chine, and a friendly service. Very welcoming and a lovely garden with animals. Highly recommend - we’ll be back again!"

Abbie, August 2022

"Lovely little spot for our break. Very handy to have a cot and high chair for our daughter. She thoroughly enjoyed meeting the animals and playing with Pippa the dog. Very clean and quiet apart from one windy night!"

Elizabeth, July 2022

"We had a warm welcome at Sharon’s and the facilities and setting were good for the price paid. The location is near the wilder more natural beaches on the South of the island which we enjoyed."

Squirly, July 2022

"We spent a few days here with our 4 month old daughter for her first holiday. Sharon was very accommodating and helpful and the place was perfect for what we needed. The walks from the front door are stunning, and there's so much to see and do nearby."

Emily, July 2022

"Beautiful area, very clean great to get away from loads of people. lovely to spend time with the animals. would recommend to anyone.."
