Property code: IC072

Situated on a delightful farm in a lovely part of the island, this charming cottage rests in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Appuldurcombe Down and the picturesque village of Godshill.

Above the farm fields lie sweeping open downlands where sheep graze and you are welcome to walk along the marked trails. From here there are wonderful panoramic views across the Isle of Wight towards the mainland coastline. This is a wonderful area for spotting buzzards, skylarks, red squirrels, owls, woodpeckers and badgers. A ten-minute stroll through the beech copse and across the fields leads you to Godshill, a delightful village 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 Ventnor coast. Hop in the car to discover the beautiful sandy beaches of Ventnor, Sandown and Shanklin.

This is one of three adjoining south-facing cottages which overlook an attractive farm courtyard with Grade II listed barns and a traditional 17th century farmhouse. On entering this bright and welcoming barn conversion you will find yourself in the pretty and spacious lounge/diner, with plenty of comfy seating, TV/DVD and a charming dining area. Heading into the attractively designed kitchen you will find it fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. You will also have access to a laundry room shared with the other properties on-site, which has a washing machine and a tumble dryer. (Due to the current situation with Covid-19 the laundry room will unfortunately be unavailable for 2020.) There is also a ground-floor WC. Heading upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. There’s a double room and a twin room with feature floor to ceiling beams between the beds. You will also find a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Stepping outside you will find a delightful fenced patio to the front of the cottage which overlooks a fountain. Garden furniture is provided so you can dine in the sunshine, and there’s an open lawn area within a minute’s walk of the cottage which is suitable for ball games. Beautiful carpets of bluebells can be a joy to see, in nearby woodland, in late April and early May. 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. Car parking spaces are available close to the cottage.

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

Lovely little cottage. Well equipped and dog friendly. Also great if you are going with family as the cottages next door can be booked by them. Great location too, very quiet and peaceful but an easy drive to lots of places.

Absolutely lovely cottage with small yard at front and communal lawned area just a minutes walk away. Surrounded by lovely countryside and just a 10 minute walk into Godshill itself. Very cosy with big windows to let in plenty of light in the day. Would happily return.

The cottage was comfortable and had everything you would need for a holiday. As you were allowed to take a dog it was disappointing to find there was no back garden. I appreciate that extra time was need for cleaning due to COVID, however I felt the arrival time of 16.00 was rather too late and the departure time of 10.00 was rather too early.

A truly wonderful little cottage, we have just spent a lovely week there and found it to be very comfortable and in a perfect location to visit the rest of the island. We had our dog with us and we couldn't have been anywhere better for walking him, within 2 minutes of being out the front door we were in a fantastic walking area. There is also a paRead moreth which leads down to Godshill which takes 10 minutes, so really convenient for the restaurants and shops. So a definite recommendation from us! Hide

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Incredible views to wake up to in the morning, for a quiet and peaceful start to the day, but still close enough to the local attractions for easy exploration of the isle of wight.

Spacious and comfortable cottage well placed for touring the island, and for walks into Godshill to local pubs, restaurants etc. Torch useful for the walk back. Value was compromised by insufficient and poor quality towels (visitors' comments about this dating back 4-5 years), and minimal kitchen utensils. We suffered daily infestations of small hoRead moreuse flies particularly in the kitchen and bathroom, possibly due to heavy shrubbery outside. Milk would have been handy rather than mallows. Hide

Lavender Cottage is in a perfect rural location on a farm, which is ideal for people with dogs. The cottage is cosy but the furnishings are rather dated. However we loved our week on the Isle of Wight and it was so easy to get everywhere from this central location.
