About Paula Whybrow

John and Paula purchased this property five years ago to provide a holiday venue for themselves and friends and family. Now they wish to let the cottage (The Old Brewhouse) so that others can enjoy what has been a very successful venture.

Paula Whybrow purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Paula Whybrow chose Calbourne

We bought the property for a holiday home. We have found that its proximity to the home counties gives us easy access to an area of outstanding natural beauty complemented by a very good water sport environment.

What makes this cottage unique

Besides its beautiful rural location, the most notable feature is its grounds. Set in 1.75 acres together with the main Farmhouse there is a great sense of tranquillity and freedom.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We stayed for one week and explored the island. It's a great spot to discover inland highlights like Robin Hill Country Park & the coast at Brook and Yarmouth. The cottage is really cosy with a twin room upstairs and double downstairs. We spent our evenings using the patio and BBQ out the back and lots of the day playing on the trampoline and with the football with the kids in the huge garden.

Just be careful trying to fly a kite there - big trees.

Would happily go just with my husband too as it's lovely and cosy for romantic evenings (not that the kids enabled many of them!)


A very pretty spacious cottage in lovely peaceful surroundings. Great for our toddlers and 4 year old as was in very safe grounds. A quiet area but close by to amenities, tourist attractions and beautiful beaches made it an ideal location. A superb holiday.


Stayed at The Brewhouse with our grandchildren last summer. They had a great time and there was plenty of space for them to play inside and out. Attractively and comfortably furnished, the property is in excellent decorative order and has everything you need for a family holiday. Kitchen is well-equipped and everything works! We loved the sheltered courtyard which is

perfect for outdoor dining and storing sandy buckets and spades. Good base for exploring the delightful beaches and countryside of West Wight. Would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Old Brewhouse over Christmas. This property is absolutely fantastic, there is a fully equipped kitchen that allowed the stay to run smoothly and made cooking Christmas dinner an easy job. The bedrooms are a delight and so comfortable. The lovely furnished lounge allowed all of us, dog as well, the comfort to chill out after lovely walks around the local area. The bathrooms and showers were excellent and included very powerful showers. The location of this property is great for exploring the Island, the grounds that the Old Brewhouse sit in are amazing and so well kept. Dealing with Paula the owner from the booking with our questions was easy, the experience of our family holiday over Christmas can only be described as brilliant. I would fully recommend this stunning property and will return without hesitation.

Home from home, lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a three night stay here. The Old Brewhouse is a great little find, the fully equipped full-size kitchen made catering a pleasure rather than a chore, comfortably furnished lounge and bedrooms made for a relaxing evening after a busy day exploring. (Just one gripe -The shower head in the downstairs bathroom needs replacing as it is defective and ineffectual!). Location fantastic, away from the typically touristy eastern resorts in a beautiful rural setting and closer to more rugged beaches on the west coast nothing took longer than 35 minutes to reach in the car though. We would definitely book again!

Weather not so good but the cottage was restful and peaceful. The dog enjoyed the grounds and the owners were on site for the first few days and were very helpful

and accommodating. Already booked to return next year!
