Converted from an 18th century milking parlour and nestling on the outskirts of a picturesque village, this lovely stone cottage offers a charming holiday home in the heart of the Isle of Wight.
This traditional stone cottage occupies an attractive position in a peaceful country lane on the outskirts of Godshill. It has been converted from the original milking parlour of Lower Yard Farm, and the building is thought to date back to the 1700s. The cottage is within one mile of an Equestrian centre and most of the surrounding fields are home to horses. The centre of the picturesque village of Godshill, with its pretty thatched cottages, restaurants and tea rooms is only three quarters of a mile away. The market town of Newport with its collection of shops and medieval castle is within a five-minute drive. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are all within a 15-minute drive.
