This delightful holiday cottage is located on a wonderful horse riding farm, surrounded by acres of island countryside. As the farm is set down from the road, you can enjoy the tranquillity and farm life during your holiday. There’s plenty to do right here on the farm so why not take a stroll to visit the pigs and sheep or spend the afternoon horse riding with the on-site professionals? Dine at the on-site restaurant or let the kids run off some steam in the children’s play park. For a family fun day out, you’ve got Monkey Haven and Butterfly World within 0.5 miles and further afield, Tapnell Farm and Blackgang Chine are not to be missed (both within 11 miles). For lovers of the outdoors, don’t miss out on the island’s many walking/cycling trails, boasting stunning panoramic views of the coast and countryside and are perfect for your four-legged friends.

This holiday cottage is set on a purpose-built rural farm and within acres of countryside. As you approach the property, you’ll come through a striking archway and into a quaint courtyard where you will find this holiday cottage. Upon entering the property, you’ll enter a small reception hall leading to the lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge provides comfortable seating and a Smart TV, making it the ideal spot to get cosy and watch a film after a long day out exploring. With its well-equipped kitchen and dining table, this room makes for a great social space, perfect for planning the day ahead over your morning coffee. French doors lead out from the living areas into the garden. Also on the ground floor, you’ll find a spacious single bedroom and the downstairs wet room. Heading upstairs, you’ll find the large master double bedroom with additional single bed (suitable for a child) and a Smart TV. Completing the cottage, there’s a twin bedroom and the main bathroom with neutral, relaxing decor, giving you the perfect place to unwind and soak the day off.

Heading outside towards the back of the property, you’ll find the enclosed garden offering outdoor dining furniture, ideal for al fresco dining in warm weather.

We loved the cottage and took advantage of the horse riding. Very child friendly, everyone on-site was really helpful and very nice. Would definitely re-visit.

Poor maintenance ,such a shame. Reported broken toilets ,never fixed. Had to buy a fan as very warm and stuffy ,windows closed because of mosquito issue. Catches on bedroom doors broken . Smallest toaster I've ever seen. Wet room floor tiles broken . 2 frying pans did not work on induction hob. Plus side ,restaurant was very nice ,food good. On theRead more whole disappointing as these cottages are quite pricy . Maybe the owners are more interested in the horse riding business and not the holiday let' Hide
