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.

Manor Stable is a charming cottage built of Island chalk and brick and adjoins what was originally the old farm granary. The cottage has been converted with great care from an ancient barn and where possible original features have been retained. It has been renovated and equipped with great care to provide very attractive and comfortable accommodation for 4 people in 2 bedrooms. It is centrally heated and furnished to a high standard in a traditional style. The front door opens into a large open plan room with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and large ancient beams. There is a lovely sofa and chairs, television/Freeview/DVD plus a very pleasant dining area and a newly equipped fitted kitchen with an gas cooker and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The cottage has two delightful bedrooms – one twin room and one double room with an en-suite bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and WC. There is also a family bathroom with a bath, hand shower, basin and WC. Heating & electricity are provided at no extra charge. Folding bed, wooden cot and high chair can be made available.

The cottage has an enclosed patio style garden with garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. There is direct access to a large grass area which is good for playing games and enjoying a barbecue. A mown path also leads to the beautiful fishing lakes on the farm. Arrangements can be made for visitors to fish here. Two cars can be parked beside the cottage. Regular bus service within 15 minutes walk.

Remembering that this is a working farm, we found it quiet and extremely well placed to get around the island. Some of the best nights sleep I've had on holiday, most comfortable.
