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 pubs serve 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. Please note that the garden of the Manor House is private. 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.

Step through the entrance and you’ll immediately see that this is a property brimful of character, with flagstone floors, a large inglenook feature fireplace and attractive staircase leading up to a pretty galleried landing. The ground floor lounge/diner is an open-plan space furnished with a comfortable sofa and armchairs, a TV/DVD, plus that fabulous feature fireplace. On the other side of the room you will find a table and four chairs. A well-equipped kitchen includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, while there is also a washer/dryer available for your use. There is a pretty twin bedroom on the ground-floor and further to this there is a shower room 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.

At the front of the cottage there is a pretty walled courtyard with garden furniture, while a small gate opens into a fenced garden comprising lawns and shrubs. There is space for two cars to park in the cottage’s private drive.

The wildlife was amazing, with red squirrels regularly visiting, a green woodpecker feeding in the garden, this was a delight. Nice countryside location, but close enough to Newport which was great for shopping, and eating out, and central enough for exploring the whole island. Beds were very comfortable which is a big deal when you're a bit older Read moreand prone to back aches when cheap mattresses are used. If you like a quiet rural location, you like this spot. Hide

Wonderful historic, spotlessly clean cottage in a hideaway location. Totally self contained on a working farm where there is no noise disruption other than the odd Moo. Red Squirrels ran around excitedly. There were only 2 of us I do think the living area would be tight for 4 people. Albeit there is a lovely little lounge area on the gallery level Read morefor 2 people to sit & read or chat over a glass of wine. We very much enjoyed our stay. Hide

The Brewhouse was a great escape. Located away from any roads along a track to the farm it was a lovely quiet location surrounded by countryside and wildlife. The property boasts the character of its age but has all the necessary contemporary facilities. We enjoyed a peaceful week. A great location for walking or cycling around the island.

The Brew House is a very pretty house in a lovely, quiet rural location. Be prepared to drive up a farm track to reach it (it is, after all, a working farm!).
