This delightful cottage lies at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down. A ten-minute stroll through the beech copse and across the fields leads you to the centre of the picturesque village of Godshill, 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 coast at Ventnor. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are under a twenty-minute drive away. Above the arable fields of the farm lie sweeping open downlands with grazing sheep. From the downs there are wonderful panoramic views across the Isle of Wight towards the Hampshire and Dorset coastline.

This is one of three adjoining cottages which are south-facing and overlook an attractive farm courtyard with ancient Grade II listed barns and a traditional farmhouse which date back to the 17th century. On entering this lovely barn conversion you will find yourself in the open plan lounge/diner. With plenty of comfy seating and TV/DVD, the delightful lounge is an ideal space to unwind in. You will also find a cosy dining area with a window which looks over to the fields. Heading over to the kitchen you will find it fully equipped with an electric cooker with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a ground-floor WC. Heading upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. There’s a double room and one twin bedroom with floor to ceiling beams between the beds and a sloped ceiling on one side. You will also find a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

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. Stepping outside you will find a sunny fenced patio at the front of the cottage which overlooks a fountain. Garden furniture is also provided so you can dine in the sunshine. Within a minute’s walk of the cottage is an open lawn area suitable for ball games. Here you can relax and enjoy a BBQ. Beautiful carpets of bluebells can be a joy to see, in the nearby woodland, in late April and early May. Car parking spaces are available close to the cottage. You will also have access to the laundry room, which is shared with the other cottages on-site, and which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Lovely location to see much of the island easily and very peaceful. Good walks straight from the doorstep and two friendly pubs in Godshill. The Cheverton Farm Shop just outside the village has a good range of quality food. (If, as we do, you like to cook, you may want to bring your own knives.) The cottage was very comfortable for two of us and weRead more appreciated the outdoor furniture as the small garden catches lots of Sun. Hide

Very comfortable dog friendly cottage in a beautiful location. Ideal starting point for a network of footpaths in all directions. Two excellent pubs within walking distance and a wonderful farm shop just outside the village. The place is very clean, with good heating, hot water and comfortable beds.

The cottage was comfortable and very peaceful, if you are tall be mindful of slopping ceilings and beams in bedrooms. Its well equipped and a lovely bolthole to return to after a busy day enjoying the island

Our priority in booking was considering suitability for our dogs. The location of Magnolia was ideal, with easy access to open country, and from this point of view, we would award 5 Stars. We enjoyed our stay. However, if we had not had to consider the dogs, we would not rate Magnolia above average, compared to many others we have stayed at over thRead moree years, and on balance would not recommend it to friends.
