  • 17th century period property tucked away in the countryside, an ideal location for a romantic couple's break
  • Idyllic and unspoilt rural location at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down with enjoyable woodland walks from the front door
  • Situated within ten minutes' walk of the village of Godshill and just 5 miles to the popular sandy beaches of Shanklin and Ventnor
Property code: IC146

Attractive former-coach house sleeping two guests, situated alongside four other holiday cottages on the owner’s farm just outside the village of Godshill in the south-east of the Isle of Wight.

Boasting a peaceful rural location on the owner’s working farm, this attractive reverse-level cottage offers an idyllic couples’ escape. You’ll find it at the base of Appuldurcombe Down surrounded by the Isle of Wight’s picturesque countryside, which you’ll enjoy views over from the comfort of your home from home. We know your four-pawed pals should never be left out of an adventure; Fido and Rover will love exploring the many woodland walks from the doorstep, as well as getting sandy paws at Ventnor and Shanklin beaches, both just 5 miles away.

Entering the attractive cottage, you will find the double bedroom on the ground floor, while upstairs an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers everything you need to make yourself at home. Cook a delicious romantic dinner in the modern kitchen and dine overlooking the treetops. Rest achy feet and paws after a day of exploring in the comfortable lounge area, curling up to enjoy your favourite film or TV show. From the living area, a stable door leads to a set of external steps down to the bridle path. You’ll also have access to the farm’s communal garden -- the perfect spot to sit and enjoy al fresco drinks while your canine companions go mutts for the open space and country air.

The historic and pretty village of Godshill is just 1 mile away, famed for its array of local fossils. Join a guided fossil hunt on the beach of Compton Bay (13 miles) and see the dinosaur footprints, finding souvenirs to take home along the way while the pups splash in the waves. Coastal canines will also love walkies along the Tennyson Trail. Join the path at Carisbrooke (6.5 miles) and head west towards the Needles (18.5 miles), passing through the Isle of Wight’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cottage is located down narrow country lanes. It was also very dark and lights were needed most of the time. It is looking a little tired and doesn't compare favourably with some other 4* properties. However it was warm, plenty of hot water, a good walk-in shower and a very comfortable bed. It was clean and although fairly basic had the essentials.Read more Pleasant walks direct from the property. Hide

Lovely little cottage; one of a few on the farm but set in a corner, so feels nice and private. V quiet at night; during the day the only noises are from wildlife, walkers & horses on the bridleway that runs by the house. A 10-15 minute country walk into Godshill, a quaint village with a few pubs and tea rooms - bring a torch for post-dinner returnRead more. Good base for exploring the IoW by car & doing local walks, e.g. ~1km walk to the obelisk up the hill - ideal for seeing the stars on a clear night! Hide
