Self-contained ground-floor property offering comfortable accommodation for two guests on the owner’s farm in the quiet hamlet of Whiteley Bank, just a short drive from a choice of beaches.

This cottage enjoys a pleasing farmland location in the south-eastern area of the Isle of Wight. Lying between two of the island’s best-loved villages, Shanklin to the east and Godshill to the west, there is plenty to see and do within just a few minutes’ drive. Shanklin comprises of two distinct areas: the old village with its quaint cottages and gift shops, whilst the seafront is a livelier affair with a sandy beach, takeaway outlets, an adventure golf course, and amusement arcades. The two are linked by the shaded woodland gorge of Shanklin Chine, which is a pleasant walk by day and is lit up by illuminations in the evenings.

The front door of this property opens from the farm courtyard, up one step and directly into the open-plan living area which comprises a lounge/kitchen/diner and curtained-off sleeping area. The kitchen area occupies one corner of the room, and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, whilst there is a laundry service available on request. The lounge area with its comfortable seating, is situated between the kitchen area and the patio doors which open onto the patio garden. There is a TV/DVD here providing guests with relaxing entertainment at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. A set of curtains can be pulled to separate the living area from the sleeping area which has a king-size bed, small dressing table and built-in wardrobes. The bathroom, meanwhile, offers a shower over bath and WC.

Patio doors from the lounge area open onto an enclosed patio garden for which garden furniture is provided, giving guests a pleasant spot to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings. There is off-road parking for one car on the gravel driveway next to the cottage.

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.

My wife and I spent a most enjoyable week at Fowlsdown Barn End, Shanklin from the 19th - 26th May 2017.We found the accommodation provided all that we required.The kitchen, lounge and bedroom were all open plan but the bedroom could be curtained off if required.The property is decorated to a very high standard and is ideally situated half way betwRead moreeen Shanklin and Godshill, though anywhere on the island can be reached in less than 45 mins.The owner Sara and her two lovely dogs made us most welcome and we would not hesitate in booking this property again when we next visit the island.
