300 year old cottage set in a superbly quiet position in the peaceful village near Newport with views up to Carisbrooke Castle. At the rear of the cottage there is a brook with seating where you can watch the kingfisher catching his breakfast. There is
a small level patio running along the length of the cottage along side the brook, overlooking the old mill. The brook is fenced off and gated therefore safe for young children. The front garden is laid to lawn & flower beds where there is a patio area with a table that seats 8. There is parking for 2 cars at the front of the cottage, with additional parking a short distance further up the lane. There are numerous bridleways & footpaths through to the countryside, directly from the cottage & of course Carisbrooke Castle is only a short walk away, where in the summer months special activities are arranged for children. There is a village shop (Co-op) It is a short walk over the Forde and has a Post office where you can buy your newspaper. Outside the Co-op is the bus stop with a bus service into the Principle town of Newport for all the main shops. IOW is a network of small country lanes & nowhere is very far, including the beaches - it just takes a little longer! We regret that we cannot accept pets. It is not that we don't love them, we have children who come who have allergies.

During July and August we are offering a £50 refund which we hope will help go towards the ever increasing cost of the ferries. Payable after the holiday.

The cottage is over 300 years old so the staircases are steep and the ceilings low!

The stairs in the dining room lead up to a shower room and 3 bedrooms. One single bedroom, with a hand basin, a twin bed room with hand basin and a kingsize bedroom with ensuite bathroom and WC.

The price includes bed linen, towels and dishcloths. Also included are loo rolls, kitchen paper towels, washing powder and dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, etc.,


The cottage is situated in a quiet lane and sometimes you can hear the donkeys baying from the castle. The surrounding area is a Conservation area of outstanding natural beauty. The lane has easy access to many walks and of course, Carisbrooke Castle is a short walk away. Many folk use the lane to exercise themselves - and their dogs! The brook runs along the back of the cottage and has shallow waters that run crystal clear - so clean that it attracts kingfishers. In the summer children have a lot of fun paddling around in the Forde, searching for small fish. We provide fishing nets for this!

The front garden is small and enclosed. The lawn area is elevated and accessed by 2 stone steps. There is a patio area outside the kitchen door with table and chairs to seat 8. As the cottage is thatched, we do not recommend having a BBQ.

Cottage holiday

By Tone K on 06-Sep-2023

The cottage was ideal for us with such a mix of ages. It was extremely well equipped, location more or less in the middle of Isle o Wight was perfect for outings. Quiet, but with a short walk into Carisbrook. Charging stations for electric cars nearby. And we loved the sound of the running water in the little brook behind the cottage. We all loved the cottage with it''s pretty front garden and good sized patio area.

Lovely cottage in central location on IoW

Clean, very characterful cottage set by a ford in a picturesque lane almost under the shadow of Carisbrooke Castle. (In the other direction is a surprisingly busy road and Newport but this setting is very peaceful). Cottage is well appointed and clean and its genesis as two dwellings (at a guess) gives it a distinctive layout that would be great for smaller children to explore. Would be perfect for hide and seek
