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

We had a great stay at the cottage., its very peacful with added bonus having 2 red squirrels playing in the back garden, and got to glimpse the little owl on the pole out back in the evening and of course the frinedly neighbour goat. Next time we would definitely like to bring our bikes and explore the nearby countryside with the red squirrel traiRead morel being close. We feel it is in a perfect location to access everything on the island. Hosts were very pleasent and it was clean and comfortable. Hide

Clean and well equipped. Comfy beds. Shower useless. Noisy creaky floorboards upstairs wake you up at night. Back garden very untidy.

Comfortable peaceful cottage with countryside all around. The owners are available and friendly but not intrusive. Ideally situated in the centre of the island so all attractions are easy to reach. Can recommend the Garlic Farm, Taverners in Godshill and the Bistro in Ventnor.
