Fresh milk is provided and usually home baking too.

We are just a few minutes by car from the Portsmouth-Fishbourne car ferry terminal, and convenient for the Ryde passenger ferry and hovercraft, with bus-stops within 100 yards. Getting to Isle of Wight is easy. There are three car and passenger ferries to the Island.  The nearest to Binstead is the Wightlink service that runs between Portsmouth and Fishbourne, about a mile from us.   Red Funnel runs a service between Southampton and East Cowes, about 15 minutes from Binstead by car. There is also a Wightlink ferry between Lymington and Yarmouth in the west of the Island. Bookings for all of these are recommended, and are essential in high season. Only 2 hours from London, ferry routes connect directly with the road, rail and coach links to whisk you off to your Island destination. If you are not bringing a car with you, once ashore you can take advantage of the Island's comprehensive network of buses which are especially geared towards visitors. As well as travelling as a foot passenger on the car ferries, there are three faster ferries for foot-passengers only. Passengers have the choice of Wightlink Fastcat catamaran from Portsmouth Harbour Station, the Hovertravel hovercraft from Southsea and the Red Funnel catamaran from Southampton to West Cowes.

Within a mile of us there is plenty of entertainment. If you visit Island Eye for further information you will be surprised what Isle of Wight has to offer its visitors. The town of Ryde, with its sandy beaches and shallow water is ideal for swimming.  An even better beach is further along the coast in Seaview. Ryde also boasts a heated swimming pool, bowling green, pitch and putt, boating lake, ten-pin bowling alley, dotto train, marina, cinema and nightclub. If you are interested in walking or cycling visit Island Eye for footpaths, bridleways, cycle tracks and quite lanes. Cycling is a great way to explore the Island. Welcome to Sillwood Acre where guests can enjoy relaxed, quiet and friendly atmosphere.
