Property code: IC069

An oasis of peace dating back to the 18th century, this superb family holiday home occupies a wonderful position nestled in lovely countryside, with uninterrupted views over the beautiful Yar Valley.

Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the East Wight countryside, this fantastic property offers uninterrupted views across the Yar Valley to the Ventnor Downs. This is a haven for wild life, with an abundance of rabbits, pheasants and numerous other birds. Red squirrels and badgers may also be seen. This is a glorious area for walking or cycling, with footpaths and lanes criss-crossing the island and leading down to the picturesque River Yar. Visitors are within a five-minute ride of a cycle path which follows the old train lines providing a route to Sandown, Newchurch, Newport and Godshill. Surrounded by countryside, the charming village of Newchurch is 1.5 miles away, and features an excellent pub and beautiful church. Just an easy drive away is the east coast, where you will find a choice of lovely sandy beaches, including Sandown, Shanklin and Ryde.

The property dates back to the 17th century and used to form part of the buildings of the famous Manor House which occupied the site. Nothing now remains of the Manor apart from the dramatic stone pillars which stand as the gateway to this impressive stone property with shuttered windows, giving the impression of a lovely French farmhouse. The front door opens into a large hall/reception room with open stairs. Exploring the ground floor you will find a spacious and light lounge with comfy seating and TV/DVD. There’s also a delightful dining area with French doors which open into the garden. You will also find a stylishly designed kitchen fully equipped with a double electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and an attractive breakfast area, with the washing machine and tumble dryer housed in a separate utility room. You will also find two cosy bedrooms on the ground floor. There’s one double room and a twin room plus a shower room with a WC. Head up the open stairs and this leads to the first floor where you will find a galleried south-facing lounge. With comfy seating and TV this lovely room offers a sunny place to relax, and, like most of the main rooms, it enjoys beautiful views down the valley. There are three cosy bedrooms on the first floor: one double and two twin rooms each with en-suite facilities. One of the double bedrooms and one of the twin bedrooms have an en-suite shower room with WC and the remaining double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with bath, handheld shower over the bath and WC.

The cottage has extensive grounds with a fenced garden at the front of the property with a sunny patio, garden furniture and BBQ. Gateways lead from the garden to pastures grazed by pet sheep who will eat from the hand. Four or more cars can be parked in the drive.

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

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A lovely peaceful setting and great location for exploring most parts of the island. St Helens and Bembridge were nearby beaches worth a visit, as was Compton Bay on the West side of the island. The children particularly enjoyed feeding the sheep.

An ideal cottage for a large family. Spacious, warm and we'll equipped. The fully enclosed front garden is ideal for small children and dogs. The central location is perfect for all of the Island's many attractions. The children loved feeding the sheep!

Wonderful family holiday destination. There were 10 of us, 7 adults and 3 children, ages ranged from 4 years to 69 years and everyone had all they needed. The views were outstanding we spent a lot of time in the garden and the sheep were enjoyed by everyone. I would definitely recommend this house for family's as it is spacious enough for everyone Read moreto have their own space without getting under everyone's feet. Hoping to return next year. Hide

The pictures on the website do not do the cottage justice really. We were a party of four human couples and two dogs. Some people might consider the furnishing old fashioned but we all like it. The place has a homely feel about it. Loads of cookware, pottery and cutlery and more than enough tables and chairs in three rooms. There is a nice upstairsRead more lounge too with a decent enough three piece suite. A massive disappointment was that there was no ghost - in fact the house was not "spooky" at all. Hide
