5/5 Excellent

Absolute gem!
We had an amazing stay at Queen Bower Farm Lodge in May half term 2021. We had a very warm welcome from Yasmin including the most delicious carrot cakes on arrival. The lodge is well equipped and comfortable (easily accommodating up to five - with lots of space to unpack). Throughout is beautifully furnished with lots of homely touches. We didn’t spend much time indoors but the lodge is well equipped with a smart TV in each room, WiFi and a selection of board games including IOW Monopoly and Farmopoly! Dogs are welcome with bowls and towels supplied. There is a lovely enclosed garden to the rear of the property, perfect for outside dining. There is also seating to the front of the property, perfect for watching the comings & goings of the farm. The owners dogs are very friendly and will come and visit you here if invited. There is more outside space to enjoy in the adjacent camping field (just a few caravans permitted) perfect for outdoor games, a picnic or a stroll to enjoy the views over to Culver cliffs. The lodge is ideally situated to explore the island although you may just choose to stay nearby; there are numerous walks, bridle paths and cycle paths direct from the farm. We also loved just staying at the lodge and enjoying the outside space. We were invited to meet all of the animals on the farm; horses, Shetland ponies, chickens, geese, orphaned lambs and a rescued piglet! We loved hearing the rescue stories and how Naughty Nash (Shetland pony) got his name. My 12yr old daughter absolutely adored all the animals and the farm’s dogs rather become her pets for the week! There is plenty of wildlife to enjoy in the outdoor space and the nature reserve, a short walk away is a perfect spot to see the island’s red squirrels who are well looked after by the locals and are happy to come up close. Queen Bower Farm Lodge is an absolute gem, perfect for a peaceful and relaxing break or a more active walking / cycling holiday. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We can’t wait to come back 😊
