About Nick Whittle and Kristina King

I am a local born and bred Islander, who has trained as a boat builder, specializing in traditional wooden boats. I Have developed a few properties with my father and the farm being our greatest which we are very proud of. I'm a keen surfer who enjoys water sports around the island.

Why Nick Whittle and Kristina King chose Yarmouth

The farm dates back to over 300 years old, but was only used as a cattle and dairy farm, myself and father converted the barn recently. The cottage is in a Thorley village with beautiful surroundings, but only a short walk to Yarmouth, and 10-30 minutes drive to lovely beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

On arrival you will receive a very warm welcome from us with a local produce packed hamper to help you get settled in for your stay at 1 The Dairy. There is also a Hot tub outside which seats 6 people one of them seats being a lie down one. The cottage also has great outside space with lovely garden and patio/terrace area and great views of the countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great holiday. The cottage was perfect. the area

was a brilliant base unspoiled and beautiful. We appreciated the

comments in the guest book from previous holiday makers and would definitely recommend it to others. Nick and yourself were very welcoming and helped to make the holiday such a treat. Many thanks.

The old Dairy

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodation was first class. All very clean and very tidy. Great range of facilities in the kitchen and the added bonus of a hot tub outside. We spent several sessions in the hot tub looking at the stars. Really relaxing. The owners we very welcoming and helpful. We would recommended this stay to friends, family or anyone else. You won't be disappointed!

The island is surrounded by beautiful beaches and coastline, the nearest being Colwell bay which is a ten minute drive, there is also Compton where there is surfing and kite surfing, etc which is only a 15 minute drive. There is also sandy beaches at Ryde, Sandown and shanklin which are about 30-40 minute drive away.


Would advise a car, although bus stops are nearby if needed and Yarmouth is within 30 minutes walking distance. Yarmouth ferry is only a 5 minute drive from the Cottage and both East cowes and Fisbourne ferries are a 30 minute drive away.


For those arriving in Yarmouth the property is a five minute car journey - access to Yarmouth where there are shops, restaurants/bars is a 30 minute walk along the river Yar and country paths. The Island's capital, Newport is 20 minutes drive. The Needles Park at Alum Bay is a 10 minute drive, with many attractions. Robin Hill & Blackgang Chine are child friendly theme parks both within 30 minutes drive. Osbourne House, is open all year round in East cowes which is also a 30 minute drive away.

Further Details:

In nearby Yarmouth there are great bars and restaurants, The George Hotel with its brasserie and lovely garden has views of the Solent. Fresh fish dishes are available at the famous 'Salty's' restaurant, or try the 'On the Rocks' restaurant, where you cook the very best of island meat and fish on a lava stone at your own table. Yarmouth also has three pubs, each serving a varied menu. Relax in one of the bars and watch the the Yachts in Yarmouth Habour. There is a lovely Deli and a great cafe called Gossips with views of the Solent. One ATM point and a few local food and clothing shops. Full supermarket located in Freshwater (10 minutes drive). High Street shops in Newport and Ryde. Cinema (Cineworld) in Newport.
