We stayed two weeks in puckaster and we wished we could have stayed longer.

The work was mostly outdoors, which we liked. The little home we stayed in was very cute and complete. We really enjoyed the family dinners and were given the chance to get our own breakfast and be refunded later. The cherry on top was the welcoming energy of Russ, Steph, and Amara, we felt super comfortable the entire time. Thank you!

10/10 experience! Russ and Steph were great hosts, making sure we were comfortable and honouring the exchange to the T! The work was mostly outdoors so it can be tiring but also very rewarding to make a little impact on such a beautiful site. The place we stayed at was super cozy and more than we could ask for. As for the food, it was plenty and delicious, so we are very grateful for it. And last little bonus was the hilarious baby Amara turning our dinners into comedy shows; we'll greatly miss laughing with her.
Highly recommend staying with them and getting the chance to hike on the isle!

My experience with Steph and Russ was truly exceptional. This was my experience with WP and also my first visit to the Isle of Wight, and I wasn't familiar with the transportation options, leading to my arriving late on my first day. However, they were incredibly understanding and accommodating.

Their family, including Junior the cat, added to the charm of the place and made my stay even more enjoyable. To my pleasant surprise, I discovered that they are one of the UK's top glamping sites. I wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone looking for a memorable experience.

My experience with Russ, Steph and Amara was lovely. They are a calmed, kind and hardworking family. They helped me with everything I needed help with and more. They made me feel like they cared about me being comfortable there with them. The food was healthy.
The time there was perfect to connect to nature, live slow, build a nice routine and just be there. The feeling of being in the island was something in between being isolated and being part of a big group of people.
The place is beautiful and the maintenance jobs help them to keep it that way. I enjoyed a lot contributing on that.

The time I spent here was truly amazing. Russ, Steph & Amara all contributed beautifully to make this experience one that i’ll never forget. I feel I have made friends for life here. The views are spectacular, and if you’re a keen walking enthusiast (like i am) then it truly is a magical place to come and stay. The guys were super friendly and accommodating and couldn’t do enough to ensure I had a memorable stay. Thank you so much to all three of you, I very much look forward to my return.
