This quaint cottage is one of three located on a farm, just above the picturesque village of Godshill. Perfectly located for keen walkers and those looking for a relaxing retreat.

Rosemary 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 teashops 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.

Rosemary 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, dating 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 sympathetically renovated to compliment its history. It is furnished in a traditional style and is centrally heated. There is a spacious sitting room for relaxing with a flat screen television, plus a pleasant dining area.

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; a bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and W.C. and also 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 tumble dryer. A travel cot and high chair can be provided. 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.

We hired the 3 cottages for a family of 10 plus dogs. We had a great time as the location is such that nowhere is too far to travel. Plenty of walks from the cottage. If you have a supermarket food delivery, make sure you give them the name of the cottage you are in.
