This converted forge provides everything you need for a memorable holiday, with homely accommodation complemented by an outstanding location in the Isle of Wight’s ravishing countryside.
Bridgecourt Manor Cottage is in the grounds of an old manor house in beautiful East Wight countryside, near the picturesque village of Godshill. The Manor House is surrounded by fragrant gardens which the cottage overlooks, along with a large duck pond. This is a wonderful walking area and visitors can follow footpaths immediately from the cottage to the nearby picturesque village of Godshill, or follow the course of the River Yar which meanders to the south coast of the island. Other footpaths lead on to the nearby downs. The sandy beaches of Shanklin and Sandown are within a ten-minute drive, as is the market town of Newport and the medieval castle of Carisbrooke.

There is a pretty fenced garden at the front of the cottage, with a lawn and a secluded patio housing garden furniture and an umbrella so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine.
