We’re John & Janet Slinn, the owners of Stargazers Cottage (also known as Dean Croft Holiday Cottage). We live right next door, at Chestnut Farm, with our cats – Matty, Sirius and Loki.
After numerous holidays to the island for many years we finally moved from Sussex to the Isle of Wight in May 2017 and absolutely love living here! Janet worked in financial services for over 30 years, and John was in the construction industry for nearly four decades!
Chestnut Farm and Stargazers Cottage were originally one historic barn, which was converted in 2004 into the beautiful accommodation you see today.
The Isle of Wight is like one big theme park – there’s masses to do, whatever the weather, and there’s always something going on in the evening – from the Island’s famous live music to carnival processions, street performances and much, much more.
