The cottage we had booked was the only one that didn’t allow dogs so we changed on the advice of Hugo to a yurt - if like me you have never wanted to go camping but can also see the attraction then these are for you! They were fab! The guys at the garlic farm had thought of everything . Outside there was a hammock - log fire - sofas - picnic table - blankets and cushions too. Inside there was a log fire - books - board games - dinner table. I highly recommend the yurts at the garlic farm. They were very clean the bathroom and kitchen areas were all you needed. There was also a log store to help yourself. The restaurant where breakfast and lunch were served was excellent - the food was fantastic. The nicest touches had been thought of - from the staff visiting to see if all was ok to the little extras added to the fridge and larder, we will be back there and would recommend it to anyone. There are also plenty of local pubs for dinner and drinks.

I love visiting the garlic farm - good half day visit - things to entertain the children - nice education room on the history of garlic and how it came to the Isle of Wight - tasting room where you can sample lots of the products on offer. The cafe is very pleasant. Black garlic ice cream is gorgeous. Highly recommended.

We visited here and purchased a wide range of garlic products. What a great range and incredible variety to taste before you buy.

Lots to see such as growing the different types and having a tour of the farm on the tour truck.

Worth a look - maybe something for a rainy day?
If you love garlic products then this is heaven. Bit pricey for some of the products but some hidden gems out there. Tasting room allows for less expensive mistakes to be made.

We love coming here we love garlic and enjoying tasting and seeing the many varieties this farm has to offer. The sampling room is a great idea so you know the taste of what you are buying and just how hot some of the sauces are !!!
