About Nick Whittle and Kristina King
I am a local born and bred Islander, who has trained as a boat builder, specializing in traditional wooden boats. I Have developed a few properties with my father and the farm being our greatest which we are very proud of. I'm a keen surfer who enjoys water sports around the island.
Why Nick Whittle and Kristina King chose Yarmouth
The farm dates back to over 300 years old, but was only used as a cattle and dairy farm, myself and father converted the barn recently. The cottage is in a Thorley village with beautiful surroundings, but only a short walk to Yarmouth, and 10-30 minutes drive to lovely beaches.

Beautifully managed holiday cottage
Perfect. A wonderfully managed holiday cottage, the owners are lovely, the location is beautiful, perfect for couples and families. No 1 cottage is for family with kids and no 2 cottage is for couples both are perfect.
Quiet and enjoyable stay.
We braved the hot tub in January!!! It was a lovely stay, very cosy with the log fire and loved walking around the countryside, big thanks to Nick and Kristina lovely hosts. Will definitely love to visit again and would have no problem recommending to others. Many Thanks.
The old Dairy
Our accommodation was first class. All very clean and very tidy. Great range of facilities in the kitchen and the added bonus of a hot tub outside. We spent several sessions in the hot tub looking at the stars. Really relaxing. The owners we very welcoming and helpful. We would recommended this stay to friends, family or anyone else. You won't be disappointed!
