Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Isle of Wight and situated in the grounds of a delightful farm, this lovely cottage is a perfect base for a relaxing holiday.

This delightful cottage lies at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down. A ten-minute stroll through the beech copse and across the fields leads you to the centre of the picturesque village of Godshill, renowned for its church, thatched cottages and a variety of tea shops, restaurants and pubs. There is also immediate access from the farm courtyard to footpaths and bridleways leading to Appuldurcombe and along the Stenbury Trail to the coast at Ventnor. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are under a twenty-minute drive away. Above the arable fields of the farm lie sweeping open downlands with grazing sheep. From the downs there are wonderful panoramic views across the Isle of Wight towards the Hampshire and Dorset coastline.

This is one of three adjoining cottages which are south-facing and overlook an attractive farm courtyard with ancient Grade II listed barns and a traditional farmhouse which date back to the 17th century. On entering this lovely barn conversion you will find yourself in the light and airy lounge/diner. With plenty of comfy seating and TV/DVD, the delightful lounge is an ideal space to unwind in. You will also find a charming dining area. Heading over to the stylishly designed kitchen you will find it fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a ground-floor WC. Heading upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. There’s a double room and one twin bedroom with floor to ceiling beams between the beds. You will also find a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

From the rear of the cottage there are lovely views stretching across the open fields, to the church tower of Godshill, with St. George’s Downs beyond. Stepping outside you will find a sunny fenced patio at the front of the cottage which overlooks a fountain. Garden furniture is also provided so you can dine in the sunshine. Within a minute’s walk of the cottage is an open lawn area suitable for ball games. Here you can relax and enjoy a BBQ. Beautiful carpets of bluebells can be a joy to see, in the nearby woodland, in late April and early May. Car parking spaces are available close to the cottage. You will also have access to the laundry room, which is shared with the other cottages on-site, and which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
