Description of Nutkins Retreat
Nutkins Retreat is situated in the large farm garden of 96 acres of farmland nestled next to Parkhurst Forest, a woodland to the north-west of Newport.
The site is partly a site of special scientific interest. It consists of both ancient woodland, relict heathland and plantation woodland.
It is 395 hectares in area and the second largest forest on the Isle of Wight.
The forest is open to the public, with nighjars and red squirrels and much more its a stunning place for relaxing walks..
The newly built hut is warm and snug with a wood burning stove for a romantic feel, you can sit on the decking and watch the stunning sunsets we are lucky to see along with amazing dark skies so you are able to have a glorious view of the stars.
You have sole access to a lovely gazebo and swimming pool in the garden, along with a cosy kitchen shed that we have put close to the hut with plenty of mod cons. Also accommodating gluten free needs.
A very short distance away is a shower and toilet block for your sole use.
Collecting your own eggs and helping feed the sheep is always a highlight.
The Island is a stunning place to be with pictueresque walks, beaches in abundance and wonderful pubs, restaurants and historic places to visit.
The Garden Isle has a lovely steady relaxed pace of life which will leave you refreshed and wanting to come back .
As a 3 generation farm we have newly diversified into what we hope to be able to give people a relaxed glamping break away from the hassle of daily life.
