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 where you can watch the kingfisher catching his breakfast. There is a small level patio running along the width 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 small patio with a bench table, where you can eat breakfast. 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. 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.

We have compiled an information pack, giving ideas of where to go and eat.


From the front door, you enter into a spacious double aspect dining room overlooking the brook with beamed ceiling. A large table, comfortably seats 8. There is the use of a high chair & a toddler chair.


The stairs in the dining room lead up to a shower room and 2 bedrooms. One single bedroom and a family bed room with a double bed and a single bed. Both rooms have wash hand basins. In the family room, there is an interconnecting door that leads to the *3rd bedroom with a king size bed and ensuite bathroom and WC. From this room there is another staircase leading to the ground floor. The bedroom can be accessed independently, from this staircase.


From the Dining room, there is a double aspect living room which is comfortably furnished. There is a TV and DVD. From the living room there is small lobby area that leads to the 4th bedroom which has a single bedroom and room for a put u up bed. There is a separate shower room and WC. There is a 2nd staircase that leads up to the *3rd double bedroom (description above).


The kitchen is well equipped. There is a gas hob and oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer. There is a separate Utility which houses the washing machine and tumble drier.


The price includes bed linen and towels, dish and table clothes and includes the final clean. Also included are loo rolls, kitchen paper towels, washing powder and dishwasher tabs


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 land 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

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

We would happily stay here again

A lovely cottage, well equipped with a good layout. Cresswell Cottage is centrally situated on the Island so easy to travel to all attractions.


By SALLY - WORTHIG on 03-Aug-2014

I have to say that the website doesn't do Cresswell justice. It's a beautiful period cottage in an idyllic location with a brook running behind it. It's very comfortable and well equipped. The owners and Alison (the lady who looks after the cottage) are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely week and would highly recommend the property.

Beautiful charming cottage

By BECCA - DORSET on 04-Aug-2014

Cresswell cottage is a beautiful & quirky. It had everything we needed especially in the kitchen which not all holiday cottages do. Quirky layout with the two staircases but our 2 children found it fascinating & great for hide and seek! Excellent location on the island being in the middle so ideal for exploring all over. The cottage is just a small walk away from Carrisbrooke Castle which was a lovely day out.
