Situated in an attractive courtyard, this property is surrounded by open fields stretching out towards the Downs. A short stroll will bring you to the nearby village of Godshill, home to a variety of tearooms, restaurants and pubs. A wonderful walking area, footpaths lead from the farm to Appuldurcombe House and join the extensive Stenbury Trail to Ventnor for its lovely beach. Two other stunning sandy beaches, Shanklin and Sandown, are only a short drive away.

On entering the cottage the ground floor is laid to laminate flooring throughout – the ideal place to slip off those boots after exploring the woodland walks available from the doorstep. This stunning cottage enjoys a spacious entrance hall with a striking exposed staircase, a lovely kitchen/diner, a cosy lounge and a downstairs WC. The kitchen diner overlooks beautiful farmland views to the rear. There is a dining table with 4 chairs and a wall mounted smart TV alongside a pretty dresser. The modern fitted kitchen benefits from a large electric ceramic range cooker with 5 hob plates, a separate worktop surface mounted hob for 2 pans, a second electric oven, a combination microwave oven with grill, dishwasher, washing machine and a fridge/freezer. The cottage is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after your fun days out exploring the local countryside, beaches or many nearby attractions. A warm lounge with large rug and stunning countryside views to the rear are enjoyed on a sofa and two wingback armchairs. Coupled with an elegant fire surround to LED flame-effect electric fire and large wall mounted smart TV. Upstairs the open galleried landing leads to two charming double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom with a handheld shower attachment over the bath and both double bedrooms have electric blankets. There is also a separate shower room and a relaxing reading nook. The rooms enjoy exposed stone walls and ceiling beams and are laid to carpet. Each bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe and two bedside cabinets together with lamps. There are 3 WCs in the entire property. The relaxing Reading Nook is a new addition to the cottage and this sunny room provides a further space to enjoy some quiet time in a large wingback armchair, whilst reading books and magazines and listening to music upon the radio.

Outside there is a lovely enclosed lawn garden with a picnic bench for enjoying al fresco meals in the sunshine. This can be accessed by the front door and by heading around the side of the cottage.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Very well equipped to create a true home-from-home stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. We feel a car is essential as the walk into the village is via narrow country roads with no pavements.

An absolutely beautiful cottage for a holiday in the Isle of Wight. With so many attractions and beaches to see, there is nothing more comforting than returning after a fun packed day to a place where you can relax and unwind. The cottage is attractively decorated with a cosy feel throughout. A good space in every room with two bathrooms (one en-suRead moreite) and a downstair WC for a family's convenience. The countryside around the cottage is astounding. Hide

Lovely cottage, lovely location and dog friendly. Would have been nice to have access from the cottage into the garden without having to take dog via front of property (unenclosed) each time.

Great location in the middle of the island. Lots.of walks possible, but close.enough to Godshill to walk down to village. Nice to be in a small clutch of holiday cottages.

Loved the property. We were only a party of four adults and had a great stay. The cottage was cosy, warm and restful. Well equipped. Surroundings were peaceful with beautiful countryside and walks. In the evening some stunning sunsets and right outside the little enclosed garden at the back of property were fields full of grazing sheep. If you are Read morelooking for a rural retreat this is the place to be but also not too far off the beaten track for Godshill and travel to other parts of the Island. Hide

We were disappointed to find on the range cooker a note telling us not to use it. Having planned our menus for the week it was very difficult to execute these on just two ceramic hobs. Not good.

Lovely property in general, but the garden furniture had not been taken out of storage before our arrival and we had to phone the contact to get this done.
