This quaint cottage is one of three located on a farm, just above the picturesque village of Godshill. Perfectly located for keen walkers and those looking for a relaxing retreat.

Lying at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this delightful cottage is within one of the most picturesque parts of the Isle of Wight. A pleasant stroll from the cottage and through the beech copse leads to the centre of Godshill, renowned for its church and thatched cottages. Here you’ll find a variety of tea shops and restaurants. From the farm courtyard there is access to footpaths and bridleways that lead along the Stenbury Trail to the coast at Ventnor, a resort that enjoys panoramic views across the island towards the Hampshire and Dorset coastline. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are under a twenty minute drive away.

 

Overlooking an attractive courtyard, this cottage is Grade II listed and has been carefully converted from an old barn to create a lovely holiday bolthole. It’s been furnished in a traditional style throughout, in keeping with its surroundings and history. There’s a large comfortable lounge for relaxing with a TV/DVD, which is perfect for quiet evenings in or rainy days. You can cook up a storm in the bright kitchen, which has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and a washing machine. A WC is on the ground floor. Heading upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms boasting gorgeous exposed beams – with one double and one twin, the twin has feature floor to ceiling beams between the beds. There is also a bathroom with shower over the bath and a WC.

 

Unwind with a drink or good book on the sunny patio overlooking a fountain. Garden furniture is provided. A short walk from the cottage, you’ll find a lawn area that’s perfect for ball games or a family BBQ. Guests have use of a shared laundry room with a tumble dryer, and car parking spaces are available close to the cottage.

We rented the 3 adjoining cottages for a family holiday and this worked very well for us. The children were able to come and go between the properties safely. The area was very peaceful with lovely walks on the doorstep. They are also very conveniently situated for getting to all parts of the Island.

It was lovely to get back to the cool cottage, after a day on the beach, in the sunshine. Lovely views and tranquility. The cottage is easy reach of Godshill, and Shanklin and Santosh. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
