AN Isle of Wight farm has been chosen as one of the best to stay at by a national newspaper.

Nettlecombe Farm, Whitwell, was selected as one of the four best British farm stays by the Daily Telegraph.

The farm, which has nine self-catering cottages in stunning countryside, prides itself on its great selection of animals to pet, ranging from alpaca to reindeer, as well as three fishing lakes, play areas and a yoga barn.

The farm has been in the Morris family for more than 100 years and current owner Jose and her daughter, Liz, run the business.

The Telegraph described it as an excellent choice for anyone wanting to explore the Island and praised the safe environment for children.

Liz Morris said: "We were so delighted to be chosen and it immediately sparked a surge of bookings for next year after it appeared in Saturday’s paper.

"We have worked hard over the years in building up this business and it is now paying dividends, with lots of repeat bookings."
