Stone Place Cottage is located in the small, rural village of Shorwell on the south west of the island, which is only a three-mile drive from the shingle beaches of Brighstone. Shorwell village is just a 5 minute walk away from the cottage and benefits from a traditional old public house with a stream. The village is ideally located for walkers and cyclists with its rolling countryside and many footpaths and trails to explore. The market town of Newport, often considered the capital of the island, and the medieval castle of Carisbrooke, are within five and a half miles. There is a playground in the village of Shorwell for young children and also a playing field. There is a regular bus service and village shop within five minutes.

The traditional cottage stands proud with its stone-built structure and large wooden door. It has retained original character features such as exposed beams. Stone Place Cottage offers comfortable accommodation for four people in two bedrooms and it is furnished in an old-world country style. On the ground floor there is a cosy lounge . After a long day of exploring, curl up on the comfy sofa, light the fire and pop on your favourite movie. There is also a small dining area in the lounge, making this a great place to enjoy breakfast or a light lunch. The kitchen continues with the country feel and is equipped with an electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. The dining room has a solid wood table and chairs, enough to seat four people and makes a great room for a relaxed dinner. The bathroom with shower over the bath and WC can also be found on the ground floor. Up the open stairs, there are two bedrooms; one four-poster bedroom and one twin bedroom.

The cottage has an enclosed back garden which is laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees and benefits from garden furniture. Enjoying an alfresco dinner is a must! There is off-road parking for one car opposite the cottage.

Cottage in a good location and garden very private . Very handy shop opposite in farmyard. It is an old cottage and listed building and very quaint. Very cosy and the separate dining room a great asset. A surprisingly well stocked farm shop opposite catered for most needs. Easy to get around with good bus links a very short walk away.

Good position for exploring the south west corner of the Isle of Wight. Bed was warm and comfortable, as were the sofas. Nice to have the woodburner but not so easy to manage it.

A classic old-school cottage in a quaint quiet village. There are loads of original features in the house which really sets it apart from other properties. Great for those who want to get away from it all. The beds were super nice and comfortable! The enclosed garden was really useful to have to allow everyone to run off steam.

Quaint cottage in peaceful surroundings with a lovely back garden. Clean and cosy but could do with modernisation of the bathroom and kitchen. Shrubs at the front of the property obscured a lot of light when we visited recently, but hopefully this will be dealt with by the owner.

A lovely cottage and a nice location, although you do have to take care with the road outside as traffic drives down it at some incredible speeds! Overall a lovely place to stay although please note there is no wifi and if you are tall, then you have to be incredibly careful not to hit your head.

The cottage is in a lovely location in a beautiful village with very friendly people. It was reasonably comfortable although we found the four poster bed uncomfortable. The log burner was a welcome addition on chilly evenings. The back garden was a sun trap and great to sit in late afternoon/early evening.

The cottage was very comfortable and we liked all the "period" features and fittings. The area is very quiet (during the evening and night) and very dark, so helps with sleeping. When we arrived the central heating was off and the cottage was quite cold, but we soon found some electric radiator heaters to warm the cottage up. We didn't light the fiRead morere as the temperature increased significantly. We dried our towels on a clothes horse in front of the electric heaters as no heating in the bathroom. Hide

A well positioned cottage in a lovely village. A really pretty cottage with really appropriate sympathetic furnishings to reflect the age. It is not a modern all singing all dancing property but an authentic traditional cottage with good basic amenities.

The cottage is very quirky but we found the sitting room very dark as the shrubs are growing close to the window. The rear garden is very private and was a lovely place to sit in the sun and watch the birds. One of the single beds was not very comfortable. The stairs are steep and there is only one handrail so care is needed. The parking is over thRead moree road in a farmyard and we found it a bit difficult to unload and load as the cottage is on a slight bend. Otherwise a lovely spot in a nice village Hide
