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 Isle of Wight

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.

The Old Brewhouse October 2016 - a great find!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, spacious property in beautiful grounds of the owners' house. It is comfortable, has everything you need and is in the perfect location for exploring the island. It was great being able to have two dogs to stay with us too.

We enjoyed exploring the main beaches at Sandown, Ventnor and Shanklin and there was plenty of sand for the dogs to run on. We also visited the Chocolate Café at Godshill and The Donkey Sanctuary whilst we were here and the dogs were welcome at both.

The owners were very helpful and looked after us well, organising a replacement fridge and freezer storage when ours unfortunately broke!

Thank you for an enjoyable stay!

The Old Brew House on the Isle of Wight

  • 5 of 5

The Old Brew House was a very comfortable and in a quiet location cottage to have our week holiday. The gardens were beautiful and very useful with children. The weather helped with our stay and managed to see most parts of the Island. It is located with easy routes by car to all areas of the Island and some attractions were nearby.

We would highly recommend this cottage to everyone, friends and family.

Lovely property, peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at the Old Brewhouse. The kids and the dog absolutely loved the beautifully kept large garden and play equipment.

The cottage was clean, comfortable and well stocked with all you need for perfect family break.

Great base from which to explore the island. We particularly enjoyed rockpooling at Bembridge, a good day out at the Robin Hill Park and some fun walks exploring at Fort Victoria.

The owner is friendly and helpful.

We will be back!

5 Star Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a very enjoyable week here. The Old Brewhouse was perfect for us and our two dogs. A great location just a few minutes drive from Yarmouth and next to a quiet lane with countryside views in all directions.

The property has a very large and well-fenced garden. There’s a summer house and children’s play equipment. Inside the large cottage we found it to be very well equipped and the fixtures and fittings and decor are all very good quality. Most importantly it was very clean. All in all it’s hard to find any faults and the price for the week was very reasonable.

We would have no hesitation staying here again.

Beautiful and Tranquill "A little Gem"

  • 5 of 5

Breath-taking setting, extremely quiet. Very spacious barn conversion (like the tardis), extremely clean and tidy. Ideal location to explore the whole of the island. Our family of 5 loved it, would definitely like to stop in the Old Brewhouse again when we have another trip to the island. We found everything we needed in the barn. Paula was extremely helpful prior to our visit, very easy booking process, Would definitely recommend this accommodation to family and friends. It is a credit to Paula & John to provide such a wonderful holiday home. Many thanks, hope to visit again soon.

Pretty surroundings and lovely barn conversion

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the Old Brewhouse and had a lovely time. It is very well located for all the Isie of Wight attractions and beaches, and close to the main shopping centre of Newport. The only improvement we would make would be to upgrade the mattress in the master bedroom, but this is our personal preference. Otherwise, the owners and facilities are great.
