The Experience

At the end of a single track is this rambling old farm, basking in wild country at the foot of St Catherine’s Down; sea, shop and pub are close. Come for agricultural chic and a whiff of bohemian laissez-faire: the cottages are cheerful, practical and perfect for families. The nicely private Milk House has mellow stone walls, 200-year-old beams and fresh Farrow & Ball colours; doors open from its airy kitchen onto a private garden. The twin room has a roll top bath at the end of its bed while the double has exquisite views; this room interconnects with a room ideal for kids. At the Cart House are two cool cottages joined at the hip, both with walls of glass at the front and interiors that brightly blend old with new. They would be great for a family, as one loft bedroom is reached through the other (note the shower room is downstairs). Both halves have lovely sitting rooms, well-equipped Shaker-style kitchens and doors onto a garden for summer barbecues. Come for a week and friendly Caroline, who does B&B next door, will give you a hearty welcome basket of local veg and sprigs of wildflowers.
