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.

Bridgecourt Manor Cottage is a stone cottage converted from an ancient forge which dates back to the 1600s. It provides attractive and comfortable accommodation for five people in three bedrooms. The cottage has been furnished and equipped in a traditional style and is centrally heated. On the ground floor there is a large open plan sitting room furnished with sofas, a television with Freeview and a DVD player, and a pleasant dining area. There is a fitted kitchen equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and a small breakfast area. A tumble dryer is also provided. There is access to a small single bedroom via the kitchen. This bedroom has a compact en-suite bathroom with a bath, basin and W.C. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms; one double and one twin room, both with en-suite shower rooms with W.C.s and basins. Heating and electricity are provided without extra charge. A folding bed, travel cot and high chair can be made available if required.

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. Visitors have access to the lake in the grounds of Bridgecourt Manor which is home to a variety of ducks. Three cars can be parked immediately outside the cottage garden. Visitors can walk into the village of Godshill in ten minutes and here there is a village shop, restaurant, tea shops and two public houses, plus a regular bus service to Shanklin and Newport.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful setting, great walks on our doorstep, easy access to anywhere on the island. Pleasant outside table eating area.

Good location and garden. Perfect for dogs. Helpful owner. Good parking. Interior needs updating, decluttering and deep cleaning. The cottage needs new mattresses, new kitchen and new kitchen equipment. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom not pleasant.

This cottage is in a lovely location, right in the heart of the Island. Alison, the owner, made us & our friends dog feel very welcome ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was warm & cosy with plenty of room for 5 of us. It was ideal for our short break & we would return.

Given that this cottage allows up to four dogs, it is very hard to criticise the cleanliness but if you are without dogs, you might be disappointed. The TV and the mini hi-fi could be updated and the mattresses too. The kitchen is fine and Alison was very quick to replace the broken dishwasher on New Year's Eve! The cottage is about a 10 minute walRead morek from Godshill High Street and set in a quiet area , about 50 metres from the road. Four adults and three dogs had a lovely week here. Hide

The cottage is ideally placed to visit all parts of the island. We found the property well kitted out and our host was most helpful in providing information about beaches and walks where we could exercise our three dogs. We were made to feel at home. Certainly a place we would love to return to if we visited the island again.

A lovely spacious cottage situated a few minutes drive from the lovely village of Godshill. Perfect for anyone with dogs, with a lovely secure garden accessible from both the kitchen and lounge. We found it difficult to source a property that took multiple dogs; we had four, but this was perfect for them with the large open plan lounge/diner.
