This stunning rural retreat, on the island's south side, provides guests with the ideal base to explore both the island's coast and countryside. A wonderful choice of walking and cycling routes is right outside the front door, with direct access to a network of footpaths. Godshill is well-known for its charming, thatched cottages, independent shops, tearooms, pubs/restaurants, and an intriguing model village (1 mile), and the popular market town of Newport, with its wide variety of shops and medieval castle, is well worth a visit (6.5 miles). Within 8 miles are the beautiful sandy beaches of the seaside towns of Sandown, Shanklin, and Ventnor. Ventnor Botanic Garden and Osborne House are both within 10 miles.
The open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner greets you as you enter the lodge. This is the ideal place for preparing some home-cooked food before enjoying a romantic meal around the dining table and reminiscing about the day's adventures. After dinner, you can look forward to relaxing on the comfortable sofa and watching your favourite movie on the Smart TV or simply reading a good book in your tranquil surroundings. All on one level, the lodge also has a comfortable king-size bedroom with storage space, and a lovely shower room where you can freshen up.
Heading outside through the patio doors will take you to a private enclosed patio with views of the surrounding fields. There is outdoor furniture where you can relax and enjoy the sun, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco, or sit and watch the spectacular sunsets. For slightly cooler evenings, there is also a fire pit available.
