Book a holiday to remember at this tranquil property located on a 50-acre horse-riding school. You’ll be 2 miles from Newport, the island’s principal town, and just 3 miles from an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can explore gorgeous scenery on foot or by bike. Within the grounds, you’ll have access to an on-site children's play area as well as a bar/restaurant. The site promotes an eco-friendly ethos, with solar-powered heating and rainwater harvesting. In the property, there’s space for up to six, and two dogs are welcome to come along, too.

This mews-style property has been renovated to a high standard, with contemporary decor and tasteful artwork on the walls. In the attractive open-plan living area, you can sink into the sofa and watch a film on the Smart TV in the evenings. There’s a modern well-equipped kitchen and a dining table and chairs for enjoying leisurely meals together. French doors from here lead out to your private garden, where you can cook up a yummy BBQ on mild evenings. The three bedrooms – a twin, a king-size and a bunk room – are all located upstairs.

When it’s time to explore, you’ll find a pub 1 mile away and lots of shops and restaurants in nearby Newport. Golf lovers will make a beeline for the course 3 miles away, while history buffs will love visiting the medieval castle at Carisbrooke (3 miles). You can spend a day by the sea at Ryde (5 miles) or head south to discover the sandy beaches of Sandown (7.5 miles) and Ventnor (10.5 miles).

Top marks for spotlessly clean throughout and very comfy beds, and our kids loved the playground and animals on site. The owners advised there is a mosquito problem but the property is incredibly hot: consider providing fans in all rooms. There also wasnt a hairdryer provided which was a surprise. Travelling with a dog it was a shame there werent aRead moreny walks on foot we could do beyond the property (which was off a very busy road), but it is a good location to get to many tourist spots by car Hide
