This cottage enjoys a quiet rural location, surrounded by fields, at the bottom of Appuldurcombe Down overlooking the picturesque village of Godshill. A short, pleasant walk along the wooded footpath from the cottage brings guests directly to the village, where they will find numerous tea rooms and an array of independent shops selling gifts, artisan products, and local fossils. The village gem and fossil shop is also the place to book a guided fossil hunt: these interesting walking tours take place on the beach at Compton Bay (13 miles) and allow visitors to see the island’s famous dinosaur footprints, as well as pick up tips for finding their own fossils to take home. Other attractions within short driving distance include the sandy beach at Ventnor, Amazon World, and Blackgang Chine.

This lounge/kitchen/diner offers everything that guests will need to make themselves at home, including comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, a dining area, and a kitchen area which is equipped with a cooker with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine.

 

A stable door from the first-floor living area of the property leads to a set of external steps which leads down to the bridle path. There is a communal garden within a two minute walk of the cottage along with a small open garden area at the front of the cottage for which garden furniture is provided, making it an ideal spot to sit and enjoy alfresco drinks in the tranquil surroundings. At the front of the cottage, there is also an off-road parking space for one car.

Nice countryside location, walking trail on doorstep. Dog had a great time. Well equipped kitchen. Lounge seating is old and not very comfortable. Pillows like pancakes. Pack extra loo roll and spare bin bag. Also adapter for 3 pin socket to charge electric tooth brush.
