Property code: IC034

Traditional stone cottage offering spacious accommodation for eight guests, enjoying a central location in the picturesque village of Godshill, close to the Isle of Wight’s south coast.

This property is located in the popular village of Godshill, within walking distance of the village’s numerous tea rooms and shops. The village has the relaxed feel of times gone by, with no chains, but instead an array of independently owned shops, specialising in a range of goods including chocolate, fossils and gems, and local cider. The island is known for its excellent choice of beaches, and the seaside village of Ventnor lies just five miles from the property. Ventnor seafront is a lovely traditional beach where visitors can hire deckchairs and enjoy icecreams from one of the numerous small shops which line the seafront. A pub at one end of the beach offers sea views and makes a great place for lunch, or just for a drink to escape the afternoon sun. 

Upon arrival at this handsome cottage, guests will find a choice of rooms in which they can unwind after their journey. The first of these, the main lounge, is a charming room offering a plethora of original features, including a large ornamental stone fireplace, alongside carefully chosen furnishings which complement the cottage’s period style. The Smart TV can also be found here, making it a great space to relax at the end of a busy day. A spacious conservatory provides guests with a second relaxation space: a beautifully sunny room with a flagstoned floor, a choice of seating, and access to the property’s garden. As well as the dining room, there is also dining space in the country-style kitchen which is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave,dishwasher and fridge, whilst the washing machine and freezer are kept in the separate utility room. Downstairs you will also find the twin bedroom which is accessed via a hallway off the conservatory. Three bedrooms can be found up the cottage style staircase on the first floor. All of these are delightful double rooms, with the master bedroom benefitting from an en-suite shower room with shower and WC. The main bathroom can also be found on the first floor and offers a free-standing bath and WC. We regret that it is not possible to use the open fires

Outside, the property enjoys a courtyard-style garden which makes a great space for enjoying alfresco dining and, comes complete with garden furniture and a BBQ. Guests should be aware that there is a pond in the courtyard, though this is covered. In addition to this, guests also have access to a private woodland which is situated a short walk from the property and is a wonderfully tranquil retreat. There is private parking for two cars to the rear of the property, and there is additional roadside parking available within a few minutes’ walk.

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

It is an old, quaint cottage with lovely energy. We enjoyed our stay and the owner is a sweetheart and super helpful, she replaced a broken toaster same day. Godshill is a lovely village and a great location for days out. We walked the dog up to Nic's woodland area each morning and evening, which was a lovely walk throught the beautiful churchyard.

Super clean cottage, so well equipped and generously supplied by the owner. Quirky interior and plenty of comfort. The downside is that it only has a yard and is on quite a busy road, but if these things are not an issue, this is a great little cottage.

Very quirky and some lovely touches. Fresh flowers on arrival were a nice thought. Good location for visiting the whole island, and the best thing was being able to take our dogs with us.

This cottage location is second to none it is literally in the heart of the village of Godshill and it has some lovely quirks you would expect from the originally restored features of a Grade 2 listed period cottage. This also comes with some seriously low doorways, which both of us being 6foot+, found very challenging. This aside, Christmas cottagRead moree was comfortable and welcoming and we would definitely recommend it as an ideal location to explore the Isle of Wight. Hide

A beautiful cottage with bags of character. Well located in a pretty village location and well placed to get to all the key resorts and places of interest on the island. Tastefully furnished and decorated, good facilities and very pleased but could do with a dishwasher.

The cottage says it is dog friendly, we have 3 dogs but the description fails to inform you that there is no garden, just a paved rear courtyard. Furthermore we couldn't find any local area to walk our dogs. Parking for 2 cars it says. This is true but the parking area was in a small unsecure take-away carpark next door. TV never worked for 3 days Read moreand we had to put up with a painter ALL WEEK sanding, scraping, meaning windows open so had to take valuables with out with us everyday. Hide

The cottage is a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. A wonderful mix of styles and textures. The conservatory was a great bonus - especially as we had two small children with us who sometimes wanted their own space or a different space in which to play. There is a great deal to do in and around the village and plenty more things just a short drive Read moreaway. Parking was really convenient and there is a great Vegan restaurant just across from the parking area - another bonus. Hide

The cottage was stunning. Beautifully designed. Comfy, cosy and so clean. And its position in the village was amazing. We were surrounded by every business you would need on holiday. We will be back next year.
