Historic Reviews

Great venue for a group of adults having a celebratory weekend party.
Hard to find a house as well specâ’d as this one although the kitchen equipment lets it down a little.

We had a great stay at the hermitage. We were a group of nine couples and hired a private bus with guide to go around the island. Good way to visit all sites without the hassle of parking and very reasonable price of about £14 each.

The Hermitage is a beautiful house in a fabulous location. We were a party of 18 guests including 8 children and the accommodation was perfect for us. The house and grounds are very big with plenty of room for people to live, play and relax.
It is a short walk to the Hoy monument at the top of St Catherine down where there are lovely views across the Island. From the monument you can walk (approx 30 minutes) to the Wight Mouse Inn at Chale where the food and drink is great. The Hermitage is very close to Blackgang Chine which is great for kids, and a it’s a short drive to Compton Bay which is a large lovely unspoilt bay. Great for swimming, surfing, and fossil hunting. The Hermitage was a perfect place to stay for our family group.

Information pack is full of advice and places to visit

This property was wonderful. It had everything we needed and more. There are too many positives to list and I will definitely be trying to find a reason to return.
This house is amazing and I would highly recommend. The White Horse in Whitwell is well worth a visit, fantastic food and great service.

I booked the Hermitage to accommodate a group of friends travelling from across Europe to celebrate my 40th birthday. It proved to be the perfect house in a truly stunning setting. Each of the beautifully appointed ensuite bedrooms was spotlessly clean and the kitchen and games room were very well appointed.
Overall, the property was hugely impressive and we had a brilliant week. Thanks to the property owner for allowing us to stay in such a wonderful place, and thanks to the Blue Chip team for such a well organised trip. If we get the opportunity / find another excuse for a group gathering I wouldn’t hesitate to book the Hermitage again.
We visited in Nov so many of the touristy places were closed for the season, however, Tapnell Farm went down with the little ones and the Garlic Farm is always worth a visit.

We absolutely loved our holiday in The Hermitage. Stayed there the same time last year and loved it then and couldn’t believe it exceeded expectations again this year. x10 adults and x12 under 6 years olds and everyone had a wonderful time and didn’t want to leave.
