Surrounded by stunning Isle of Wight countryside, this charming barn conversion is a walker’s and cyclist’s paradise.

Situated on a farm in the beautiful South Wight countryside, this property enjoys lovely views across nearby lakes and open countryside to Ventnor Downs.

The nearby village of Arreton boasts arts and crafts studios, a farm shop and two popular pubs for enjoying delicious locally-sourced meals at the end of a long walk. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are all within a short drive, as is the market town of Newport with its medieval castle of Carisbrooke.

With exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and hardwood flooring, this cottage is brimming with original charm. The front door opens into a fantastic, spacious lounge/diner. With a high vaulted beamed ceiling, French doors opening onto the garden, wooden floorboards and ample natural light, this is a stunning room for entertaining. Furnished with comfortable sofas, a cosy rug and TV/DVD, you will have everything you need for a cosy night in all year round.

Also, on the ground floor is a pretty twin bedroom and separate bathroom with built-in shower and WC. From the lounge, an exposed staircase ascends up to a delightful galleried landing, leading to a light and airy double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and fantastic rural views towards the Downs.

Outside, there is a sunny south-facing courtyard garden with furniture for enjoying al fresco meals. Guests also have access to a large enclosed shared garden, which is perfect for lawn games with family.

Lovely cottage in convenient location for most attractions. Very quiet with an abundance of wildlife at your door. There are Red squirrels running about in the garden! Our two noisy boys loved playing football in the grassy field and adored the owners two dogs. There are hiking and cycling trails very close by.

Cottage comfortable and clean. Kitchen well equipped and having 2 bathrooms was a bonus. Courtyard garden was pleasant if a little uneven underfoot. Good position with regard to exploring the island as everywhere is only a short car ride away. Hosts helpful and pleasant. Good week was had by all.

From the moment we arrived until we left we couldn't fault anything. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Cottage was very comfortable and ideally located being central to the island, nowhere was too far away. Lovely countryside walks round the property and a couple of good pubs in Arreton. Red squirrels regularly seen around the farm.
