Property code: IC092

This Grade II-listed 18th century barn has been beautifully converted to offer home-from-home ground floor accommodation in a peaceful rural setting.

This sympathetically-converted 18th-century barn sits within a 12-acre farm surrounded by open Isle of Wight countryside. With fantastic walks on the doorstep over the downs, this is the perfect bolthole for families and four-legged friends wishing to explore this beautiful island. Discover the island’s sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside and popular attractions before returning to the garden with its terrace and lawn area beyond for a BBQ in the sunshine.

Inside, great care has been paid to retain this historic building’s charm, with exposed ceiling beams, stone walls and original arches. A charming lounge overlooks the shared lawn at the front through delightful arched windows and has been furnished with inviting leather sofas and cosy rugs over flagstone flooring. The beamed kitchen offers plenty of space to cook and dine together and is fitted with everything you should need for rustling up delicious meals while away. When the sun is shining, step outside onto the delightful terrace and enclosed lawn garden to enjoy a tasty BBQ available on request overlooking the spectacular Isle of Wight countryside.

Surrounded by open fields of horses, this property is a safe and secluded choice for family getaways. After a long walk through the downs with the dog, stroll to the rural village of Newchurch (1 mile), which is home to a popular pub serving delicious food. Jump in the car to reach the spectacular sandy beaches of Sandown (4.5 miles) and Shanklin (4 miles) and stock up on supplies at the bustling market town of Newport (7.5 miles). Other popular attractions include Rosemary Vineyard (6.5 miles) and the Isle of Wight Zoo (5 miles).

This is a truly dog friendly cottage. Weve stayed in many that say they are but when you arrive there are rules about where the dogs can and cant go ie no dogs upstairs no dogs on furniture. There was none of that here. Truly a holiday for all your family

A delightful cottage with countryside views in a lovely setting. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner who was only too happy to show us around the farm. Ideal for walkers & country lovers

We really enjoyed its quiet location and so central to the eastern half of the island with the added attraction of ducks and horses which entertained the 4year old grand daughter.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Paper Barn Cottage. Very attractive and comfortable accommodation. A wonderful rural setting with great views. We loved all the wildlife including rabbits, birds and ducks! Rather bumpy road to the cottage in parts, but we would certainly recommend this accommodation to a friend.

Best holiday of our lives. We are planning to move to the island

A lovely location to access the Island and a gorgeous setting, especially for a family vacation. Tucked away down a back country road so nicely secluded with a stunning view over the Downs, this was an ideal spot to spend the better part of a week exploring the Island with three small children in tow! Great ambiance in the cottages and on site, helRead morepful owners. Would definitely recommend Hide

A lovely location and within easy reach of many beautiful areas. We walked many miles through the countryside and saw two red squirrels; not in the woods, but in the garden of the Pointer pub, just a 15 minute walk away. I recommend the pub highly.

Reviewed by Susan 5th April 2019

A really relaxing place to stay and central to many attractions to visit. Easy walks for the dog, and the local pub served super food. Just be aware of the track to the cottage as not smooth and had a number of flooded areas. Very well worth the trip to get there. Beds comfortable. Very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
