An Escape to the island

A glamping adventure on the Isle of Wight

Last week I was given the opportunity to stay and visit our newest glamping site on the Isle of Wight. Not knowing what to expect, I turned up to the site with an open mind. I was happily greeted by the property owner, who showed me around and gave me suggestions for what I could do on the Island and where I could find my nearest shop.

We made our way over to one of the traditional huts, Bay, which I’d be staying in for the 2 nights I was on the Island. As we approached the hut, we walked across a peaceful field that had the most amazing view looking out across the Island. The hut had its own outdoor space with chairs and cushions. I sat there reading my book in the evenings, looking out onto the view that presented the most amazing sunsets when the clouds cleared.

We stepped inside the hut and I immediately noticed how light the property was. The hut was stylishly decorated and supplied with everything you may need whilst away from home. I noticed there was a TV, plenty of space to prepare food and a shower room at the back.

After showing me around, the property owner said goodbye to let me settle in. I made myself a cup of tea with the facilities provided and cosied up on the sofa with a blanket to watch something on the TV. Although there is no WIFI at the property, I didn’t feel like I needed it as there was the TV and all the information I needed in the welcome folder or on the rack with the attraction leaflets on.

The sofa and double bed were extra comfortable; I could sleep and rest all day there if I could. The fixtures and fittings there were all high quality and everything worked seamlessly. I felt like I was in my own little bubble, where I could escape and forget about all my worries.

As I was leaving Buttercup barn retreats to catch my ferry to the mainland, I could tell I felt rejuvenated and rested after my stay there. I’d like to say thank you to the owner who was so accommodating and made me feel so welcomed.­­ I’d definitely go back and bring a friend and my dog along with me, as there looked to be lots of lovely walks in the area too.
