Gladices Barn, Isle of Wight

Number 7 in National Geographic Traveller Magazine's Best Family Retreats 

What National Geographic Traveller Magazine said: 

“Wow!” shrieks one of the kids, as we enter the black-marble hall. “It’s so shiny!”  This lavish barn conversion on the Isle of Wight certainly does not lack sheen.  Filled with treasures from all over the world, I feared our large party of youngsters would wreak havoc…  

"But as plush as this palatial pad is, the objects d’art are sturdy and sensibly placed.  And with sea views, a herd of deer and a hot tub on this 250-acre farm estate, plus woodland and coastal path access, the urge to be al fresco is irresistible.

“Inside, the seven spacious bedrooms are all en suite, each with a distinct colour palate and style.  The living, dining and sitting rooms interconnect and the high-tech kitchen, with a huge central island, is a joy for cooks and diners.

“Although, if you really fancy a treat, the owners will arrange dinner hosted by an island chef.  Our feast of local lamb, cooked expertly by chef Kevin Hendy had the grown-ups cooing like kids; the kids meanwhile, were sound asleep upstairs in their elegant bedrooms.”
