About Teresa Tearle
My love affair with the Isle of Wight began in 2001 following in the footsteps of my boyfriend who spent happy times on the island learning to paraglide and looking for fossils. His love of the island was infectious and more visits followed together. We bought our first cottage (2 The Granary, Brighstone) in 2004 and our holiday letting adventure began! We bought our second cottage (Brookside Cottage) in 2008 and thoroughly enjoy being able to share our cottages and the island with our holiday guests.
Teresa Tearle purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Teresa Tearle chose Brighstone
2 The Granary was our first holiday home on the Isle of Wight. We fell in love with Brighstone village and were very lucky to find the cottage. We couldn't resist it's charms and can still remember peering over the fence on a beautiful sunny day, looking at the garden and thinking "we have to have this!".
What makes this Cottage unique
2 The Granary's garden is a real sun-trap. The cottage's peaceful location and character keep our guests returning year after year.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great location for peace and quiet to relax. Cottage has everything you could need - all feels very personal, home from home. Highly recommenced.
Lovely cottage in beautiful village, close to the best attractions in IOW
A lovely, well equipped cottage in a delightful village
The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. It is located in a delightful, untouristy village.
Excellent - would highly recommend.
This cottage is very much a home from home. Very well equipped. Lovely hamper from the local store to start us on our holiday. Lots of local information in the house to help plan visits. Lovely walk to the village centre and surrounding area. Thank you for letting us stay in your cottage!!
Great to receive such a wonderful review. Our welcome hamper of local Isle of Wight produce is always appreciated by our guests. 2 The Granary is perfectly located on the edge of Brighstone village - a few minutes walk to the beach and to the village centre.
Warm and cosy well equipped cottage in the lovely village Brighstone.
We arrived and found the cottage easily from information supplied, we opened the gate and went into a beautiful courtyard garden, entering the cottage we found it very clean and warm, a lovely hamper with local produce was in the kitchen, a Christmas tree and card in the lounge, lovely touches. The information folder was packed with everything we needed to know and suggested places of interest, this was the first time we have ever booked direct with an owner but I can honestly say it was a good decision and I would certainly book again, the owner Theresa is so caring she even text to make sure we got home ok. Thank you Theresa.
Making our guests feel at home is very important to us. This is especially so at Christmas when we feel privileged that guests have chosen our cottage in which to spend the festive period. And of course we love to encourage people to explore our beautiful Island too!
Fantastic Isle of Wight getaway!
Fantastic! We stayed at 2 the Granary for 5 nights and couldn't have had a better experience. The house was immaculate and we received a care package in a nice basket when we arrived. Brighstone is a beautiful village and there are plenty of walks in the area. The Isle of Wight is a delightful place to visit. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a getaway on the Island!
2 The Granary is always a popular choice with Isle of Wight holidaymakers thanks to its peaceful location close to the sea and Brighstone village. Great to know that our welcome pack of Island produce is appreciated!
