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.

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.
