About This Listing
We offer a lovely light South facing first floor twin bedroom at the back of the house. With the room we offer freeview TV & DVD's, Tea & Coffee making facilities and a private bathroom in the room next door.
We are dog friendly and offer a home made breakfast.
Sarah loves making American biscuits or tiny baked doughnuts to go with coffee after your cooked breakfast! We have a Very Good 5 star hygiene rating from the IOW Authority.
Our house is on the main bus route with buses every 10 mins straight into Ryde to the beach or Newport the county town, or East Cowes.
The park opposite is great to exercise your dog or kids! Nick and Sarah used to run Safari camps in Zimbabwe so there is an African feel to the house and plenty of stories to share!
There is one parking spot in front of the house. We also have a iron loop concreted in designed for motorbikes to be locked to.
Walk 20 minutes through the golf course into Ryde to enjoy the sea front, the independent shops on Union Street and restaurants.
You will have access to your bedroom and bathroom and breakfast area when eating.
Interaction with Guests
We serve breakfast and welcome you but could be out for some of your stay.
Binstead used to be a small village outside Ryde, now they seem as one as we are very close. We have one small shop next to us but its a lovely walk into town where there are lots of small independent shops.
We are on a very good bus route, the bus stops are 1 min walk away and the buses every 10 mins.
We expect you to treat our house like your own, so make yourself at home...
Room and facilities exactly as per the description. Sarah was very welcoming and we had good communications in planning our arrival.
We were able to securely store our bikes whilst we stayed as well.
Breakfast was perfect and fueled us on our cycle around the island. As did the bath with our recovery after cycling!
Perfect location if you are a foot passenger coming off the boat at Ryde.
Had a lovely stay at Sarah & Nick's place - they are very welcoming and give great suggestions and ideas what to do on the island. The place is close to the ferry port, easy to get to by car and with a car parking spot right out front. Homemade breakfast - it couldn't be better - I will definitely be back.
We had a lovely time at this B&B. The breakfast was very tasty and the room was cosy. The B&B was located in a great location - easy to get around using the buses and nearby to the local Ryde town. All in all a great trip to the Isle of Wight.

Sarah et son mari nous ont très bien reçu.
La chambre et la salle de bains sont très propres (récemment repeints avec beaucoup de goût) : c'est très simple et très soigné.
Sarah nous a préparé des petits déjeuners faits maison avec beaucoup d'attention.
Juste en face de leur maison, il y a un arrêt de bus : c'est très pratique !
Right from the start, due to our circumstances, Sarah helped us get some important medication into her fridge by picking up our luggage at the ferry and putting the meds in the fridge for us while we spent the afternoon in Ryde! Amazing! How many BandBs or hotels do that for you?? But it just got better, Nick and Sarah really do care about your stay and making it as comfortable as possible. Seriously everything about staying with them was so easy... bus stops are opposite them and the bus network in IoW is exceptional. The breakfasts were brilliant too. Don't think - just book. I'm sure they will get booked very quickly in future so don't hesitate... photos are a very good representation of what you will get! SUPERB in every way! Oh and don't forget to try some of the famous Biltong.
Sarah und Nick waren wunderbare Gastgeber und sehr um uns bemüht. Es gab ein überaus leckeres Frühstück und uns wurden alle Wünsche erfüllt!!! Binstead No 9 ist von Ryde aus ganz einfach zu erreichen und Nick hat uns den Weg gut und eindeutig beschrieben. Das Zimmer war genau wie im Inserat beschrieben, hell und sehr sauber, zusätzlich hatten wir ein Bad ganz für uns. Es waren für uns sehr entspannte Tage auf der Insel - ein guter Kontrast zu den Tagen in London.
About the Host, Sarah
I grew up on the Island enjoying summers on our fabulous beaches and sailing in the Solent. I came back here when I was 40 having spent the last 10 years running safari areas and camps in Zimbabwe and Zambia. I am married to Nick a Zimbabwean Safari Guide. We love having people to stay, and the Island is a great place to visit with lots of historical places of interest and wonderful walks. We also run another business from Newnham Farm called Isle of Wight Biltong.
