Situated on a delightful farm in a lovely part of the island, this charming cottage rests in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Appuldurcombe Down and the picturesque village of Godshill.

Lavender Cottage is situated on a farm in one of the loveliest parts of the Isle of Wight, lying at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down and above the picturesque village of Godshill, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A pleasant ten-minute stroll through the beech copse and across the fields leads to the centre of Godshill. This village is renowned for its church and pretty thatched cottages. It has a variety of tea shops and restaurants, as well as pleasant public houses. There is also immediate access from the farm courtyard to footpaths and bridleways leading to Appuldurcombe and along the Stenbury Trail to the coast at Ventnor. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are under a twenty-minute drive away.

Above the arable fields of the farm lie sweeping open downlands, where sheep graze and over which guests are welcome to walk along the marked trails. From the top of these downs, there are panoramic views across the Isle of Wight towards the Hampshire and Dorset coastline. Buzzards and skylarks are often seen from these downs. In nearby woodland Red Squirrels and badgers can be glimpsed as well as a variety of wild flowers. In the spring the bluebells carpet the woods in a blue haze. In the farm courtyard, owls and woodpeckers are frequent visitors.

Lavender Cottage is one of three adjoining cottages that are south facing, and overlook the attractive farm courtyard with its ancient Grade II listed barns and traditional farmhouse which dates back to the 17th century. From the rear of the cottage there are mesmerising views stretching across the open fields to the church tower of Godshill, with St. Georges Downs beyond. The cottage has been carefully converted from an old barn and has been renovated sympathetically. It is furnished in a traditional style with fitted carpets and central heating. There is a spacious sitting room for relaxing, with a flat screen television/Freeview/DVD, plus a pleasant dining area with a floor to ceiling feature window.

There are two bedrooms; one double and one twin room with feature floor to ceiling beams between the beds and a sloped ceiling on one side, plus a bathroom with a bath, overhead shower and sloped ceiling, and a downstairs cloakroom with a second WC. and hand basin. The cottage has a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Guests have shared use with the other cottages of a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. A travel cot and high chair are available. Heating and domestic electricity is at no extra charge, and WiFi internet is available.

There is a sunny, fenced patio at the front of the cottage overlooking the fountain. Garden furniture is also provided. Within a minutes walk of the cottage is an open lawned area suitable for ball games. Here, visitors can relax with their children or enjoy a barbecue. Beautiful carpets of bluebells can be a joy to see in nearby woodland in late April and early May. Car parking spaces are available close to the cottage. A regular bus service and shop are within a ten-minute walk.

Beautiful looking cottage in among a few others. Plenty of parking. Lovely and quiet, peaceful surroundings with immediate access to gentle off-road walks (e.g. to Godshill centre).

A pleasant cottage in a delightful setting. Not ideal for older people. Some Health and Safety issues, for example the garden path being raised above the ground it stood on, might give concern.

Gorgeous cottage in quiet surroundings. Amazing walks nearby and stunning views. No easy walk to the pub though so do consider. Take a speaker if you want to listen to the radio/music as equipment is outdated. Cottage was spacious and comfortable and the fresh flowers were a treat.
