Grade II listed thatched cottage offering pretty, period-style accommodation for up to seven guests, located in the historic village of Carisbrooke, within short walking distance of the village’s castle.

This property is well-known in the village of Carisbrooke thanks to its characterful picture-perfect appearance and, can often be seen depicted on postcards. In the village, visitors will find a welcoming pub, a handy village shop, and an Italian restaurant: perfect for guests who want to take a night or two off from cooking whilst away. The village is best-known for its impressive castle which not only features a Norman keep and walls, but also boasts attractive gardens, an interesting museum, and is home to a group of resident donkeys. For those wishing to make the most of the walking routes for which the island is well-known, Carisbrooke makes a great base, as it is the starting point for the Tennyson Trail, which stretches for 14 miles to Alum Bay.

 

A thatched porch leads up to the front door of this pretty cottage, upon entering which guests will find themselves in the welcoming lounge: an attractive room with a brick fireplace, wood burner-effect gas fire, inviting sofa seating, and a Smart TV/DVD. For those who are looking for a quiet space in which to relax, there is a second lounge which can, alternatively, be used as a separate dining room by moving the table out of the kitchen. The kitchen has been finished in a sympathetic style to the cottage and is equipped with a double oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washer/dryer is housed in a separate utility room. A shower room with shower and WC can also be found on the ground floor, whilst there is also a bathroom offering a shower-over-bath and WC can be found on the first floor alongside two of the property’s four bedrooms. Both of these are delightful double rooms, one of which features a romantic four-poster bed. A second set of stairs leads up to the second floor, where guests will find a restful single room which has its owner TV/DVD, this room gives access through to an adjoining twin room.  

 

Heading outside of the cottage there is a spacious south-facing enclosed garden. This attractive, sunny space is laid mainly to lawn and for which garden furniture and a BBQ are provided. There is off-road parking for one large or two small cars on the driveway to the side of the cottage.

Such a pretty well equipped cottage with a beautiful garden to laze in. Perfect location for touring the island.

Reviewed by Ian, 4th May 2019

A very well equipped cottage in an ideal central location. The garden is a sun trap and a joy to sit in.

Reviewed by Christopher, 27th April 2019

Very comfortable, good south facing garden, rear parking is only good for one car, unless you are taking two smart cars... Good location to reach south and west parts of the island. Avoid Newport if you can...seems to be a magnet for traffic jams....

Virginia Cottage felt like home as soon as we walked in. Mattresses were very comfortable. The garden was a bonus - as was the nearby ford for dabbling feet after completing the coastal path! Chocs and wine appreciated on arrival. Would love to return to such a relaxing cottage.
