With views over the downs from the property, and cycling and walking opportunities on your doorstep, this characterful stone cottage is both a peaceful haven and a great base to explore the island.

The 17th-century cottage is located on a farm at the end of a no-through road in tranquil Merstone. This is wonderful walking country – footpaths lead alongside the River Yar and to the nearby picturesque village of Godshill, where the local pub serves food and local ales. You are free to stroll across the farm’s fields and around its lovely lake; a grassy area close to the water is a prime spot for a BBQ. A farm nature trail offers the chance to see wildlife including herons, geese, pheasants, chickens and even a rare-breed bagot goat that will eat from the hand. The east coast resorts of Shanklin and Sandown are only a short drive away.

There is a pretty twin bedroom on the ground-floor and further to this there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC this completes the ground floor accommodation. Up two flights of wooden stairs there is a lovely double bedroom with open views across the fields.

Could not have been happier with the cottage, it is situated in a beautiful location and met all of our needs. The owners were helpful and particularly welcoming and friendly. A special mention to Dezzie and Rolo... great fun.

The Brew House was a wonderful, restful and extremely quiet location on the IOW. We would certainly love to return. Perfectly located to explore the entire Island. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful in every way. Our son simply loved the space and fishing he was able to do on the lake on the property. A wonderful place for a family holRead moreiday and we would highly recommend it to others. Hide
