Somerton Farm Holiday Cottage Details

Somerton Farm is an incredibly spacious detached family and dog friendly family holiday home situated within a working livestock farm, in Northwood, Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Perfectly situated for exploring Cowes, it is situated near to the main Park and Ride and the cycle track to Newport is easily accessible. Ideal for walking and cycling holidays and for those who love wildlife.

This farmhouse is a real paradise for all the family to relax and enjoy. Horses cattle sheep and donkeys often grazing in the surrounding fields and lots of wildlife. You may even spot herons, owls, foxes, badgers and red squirrels!


The property offers countryside views without being totally remote, ideally situated for all members of the family as access to the town of Cowes is so easy yet you feel that you are in the country.

Entering the large communal courtyard with beautiful stone barn on your right and traditional stables, Somerton Farm really impresses with its cheery exterior and ample off road parking (up to three cars).

There are four large bedrooms with views over the fields and courtyard. Downstairs is very family & dog friendly with laminate floors (remember your slippers!). Upstairs is carpeted and we ask that dogs do not go up to this floor.

Somerton Farm offers flexible accommodation for family and friends alike:

  • x1 super-king double bedroom
  • x1 super-king double bedroom with en-suite shower
  • x2 twin bedrooms
  • Spacious family bathroom with bath only

Outside Space

Outside, the garden is sheltered by a beautiful willow tree and to the rear of the property is a wild garden where the children’s imaginations can run free - perfect for hide and seek - but watch out for prickles!
