Property code: IC019

This converted forge provides everything you need for a memorable holiday, with homely accommodation complemented by an outstanding location in the Isle of Wight’s ravishing countryside.

Originally an ancient forge dating back to the 1600s, the cottage is in the grounds of an old manor house in bucolic countryside close to the chocolate-box village of Godshill. The property is surrounded by enchanting gardens that include extensive lawned areas and an attractive duck pond. Walkers and cyclists will love the location of the cottage – nearby you can pick up trails to Godshill, while other routes follow the course of the River Yar that meanders down to the south coast. The sandy beaches of Shanklin and Sandown are a short drive away, as is the vibrant market town of Newport and the impressive medieval castle at Carisbrooke.

Furnished and equipped in a traditional style, the cottage is accessed via two sets of steps onto a terrace. Here, doors lead into a large, open-plan lounge/diner furnished with armchairs and sofas – great for unwinding in front of the TV – plus an attractive dining area with a table and seats for six. French doors lead out to the lovely garden. The kitchen includes an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer and small breakfast area, while you also have use of a tumble dryer. A door in the kitchen leads to a small single bedroom that features a compact en-suite bathroom with WC. Upstairs there are two additional bedrooms – one double and one twin, both with en-suite shower rooms with shower and WC.

Outside you have use of a delightful fenced garden at the front of the cottage, with a lawn and a secluded patio plus garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. Visitors have access to the lovely lake in the grounds, which is home to a variety of ducks. There is off-road parking for up to three cars immediately outside the property.

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.

Very charming cottage in a great location. We loved the character of the cottage and setting by a pond.

Beautiful setting, great walks on our doorstep, easy access to anywhere on the island. Pleasant outside table eating area.

Excellent location, plenty of walks from the door. Centrally located on island. Fairly well equipped. WiFi very slow so not great if have teenagers in your party. Perfect cottage for dogs, not too many rules so can relax and enjoy staying there.

Good location and garden. Perfect for dogs. Helpful owner. Good parking. Interior needs updating, decluttering and deep cleaning. The cottage needs new mattresses, new kitchen and new kitchen equipment. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom not pleasant.

This cottage is in a lovely location, right in the heart of the Island. Alison, the owner, made us & our friends dog feel very welcome ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was warm & cosy with plenty of room for 5 of us. It was ideal for our short break & we would return.

Given that this cottage allows up to four dogs, it is very hard to criticise the cleanliness but if you are without dogs, you might be disappointed. The TV and the mini hi-fi could be updated and the mattresses too. The kitchen is fine and Alison was very quick to replace the broken dishwasher on New Year's Eve! The cottage is about a 10 minute walRead morek from Godshill High Street and set in a quiet area , about 50 metres from the road. Four adults and three dogs had a lovely week here. Hide

The cottage is ideally placed to visit all parts of the island. We found the property well kitted out and our host was most helpful in providing information about beaches and walks where we could exercise our three dogs. We were made to feel at home. Certainly a place we would love to return to if we visited the island again.
