This striking property is nestled in the heart of the quaint Isle of Wight village of Whitwell which offers many cycling and walking routes to explore.

The property is situated just 2.5 miles from Ventnor which offers stunning panoramic coastal views and a good selection of fresh seafood restaurants. The pretty villages of Niton (1.5 miles) and Godshill (3 miles) are not to be missed, with their lovely, thatched cottages and a range of tea rooms. Further afield, attractions like Osborne House, Blackgang Chine, The Needles, Carisbrooke Castle, and Cowes are all within 15 miles.

Moving into the bright dining hall, you’ll get an instant feel for all the character that this gorgeous property has to offer. Just off the dining hall is the first bedroom which is a light and airy single room, the ideal space to relax and unwind. Moving through this charming property you’ll find the first shower room with WC and a staircase leading to the second bedroom which features a double bed, attractive neutral décor and a large window overlooking the living area. Heading back downstairs and through this lovely property you’ll find yourself in the cosy lounge, featuring ample comfortable seating and a Smart TV, ideal for curling up with a family film at the end of a long day exploring this beautiful island. Off the living room there is a second staircase leading to the final king-size bedroom. With large, traditional windows flooding this room with light, it’s the perfect place to retreat and recharge, ready for another day of adventures. Heading back downstairs and through the lounge you’ll find the well-equipped, bright kitchen which offers everything you’ll need for your stay.

lovely village and helpful information provided about things to do, places to go. A couple of small 'snagging' issues e.g. loose items. We had a great week in terms of weather but upstairs bedrooms very hot and the beams are quite low for tall people.

There are issues that need attention, but the property is characterful and in a nice location. Good food at the local pub and Niton Stores have comprehensive choice. Good spot for exploring and the bus service is reliable. Lots of closed roads and diversions made travelling around frustrating at times.

What an amazing place. Such a lovely property. We didn't want to come home. The beds were rely comfortable. The garden very peaceful with a small stream at the back. The garden is 100% enclosed and dog friendly. Set in a sleepy village, you don't hardly see anyone or see any traffic. It feels like you have the village to yourself. 2 min from this pRead moreroperty you have the white horse inn which is the oldest pub on the island and the lady and her family are great.

Had a fantastic stay at this wonderful property. Clean and tidy, kitchen well stocked and a lovely lounge area. The king bed is very comfortable. The dining area is cozy, so be prepared to not plan for a feast if five people staying for dinner. Learn how to reverse park efficiently before you arrive. Road is quite and not a nuisance

Our comments would only cement what a beautiful property you have here....If I give my honest opinion you will end up fully-booked for the next 10 years and I wish to return ......therefore I will leave the curious guessing and let them decide for themselves.

The Old School House is in a perfect location for exploring and the local pub is excellent (they will even do you a take away if you ask nicely). The house was perfect for us as a couple. It will sleep 5 most comfortably but there is only seating for 3 in the lounge and 4 at the table. The driveway is extremely tight to get onto but just enough spaRead morece for 1 car with a confident driver. We had a couple of issues but the owner was very responsive and dealt with it promptly.

A very pleasant property in a convenient location. We always stay in the South so Whitwell is an ideal location to travel to and from across the Island.

Great location with convenience of lovely pub. Although parking, was really for a confident driver as a very tight squeeze. Kitchen is dated, peeling in places where veneered, some doors loose. Be aware very thin walls with property next door.
