Manor Stable is situated on a lovely farm in beautiful South Wight countryside. It is a marvellous walking area with footpaths that can be followed directly from the cottage in most directions. There are particularly attractive walks along the course of the river Yar, to the picturesque village of Godshill and to the nearby village of Arreton which has a pub and cafe for meals. More extensive walks lead to the downs and visitors can join the renowned Stenbury and Worsley Trails. There is also direct access, across one of the farm fields, to an extensive cycle route which provides a lovely flat and easy route to interlink Sandown, Godshill, Newport and Cowes. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin and Ventnor are within a 15 minute drive as is the market town of Newport with its medieval castle of Carisbrooke.
Visitors are free to stroll across the fields of the farm and around the lovely lake in the grounds of the Manor House. There is an open grassland area near the lakes with open views where barbecues can be enjoyed. There is also a lovely nature trail on the farm so that visitors can enjoy the wonderful range of wild life – this includes herons, ducks and geese on the lakes; swallows and kestrels often nest in the barns; pheasants, foxes and badgers plus rabbits which abound. A small herd of cows is kept on the farm and there is a delightful area for children with small rare-breed bagot goats that will eat from the hand and rescued hens which are now free-range. From the cottage there is direct access across the fields to the cycle track which links Sandown to Newport and Cowes. Arrangements can be made for the storage of bikes.
