Traditional stone cottage offering spacious accommodation for eight guests, enjoying a central location in the picturesque village of Godshill, close to the Isle of Wight’s south coast.

This impressive stone cottage is situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Godshill - a village renowned for its charming hill top church, tea shops, chocolate shop, public houses, restaurant and gift shops. This is also a wonderful walking area. Nearby footpaths lead through woodland and across downs to Appuldurcombe, and join the Tennyson trail which extends to the coast at St. Lawrence and Ventnor. The sandy beaches of Shanklin and Ventnor are within a ten minute drive.

Christmas Cottage is a beautiful 400 year old Grade II listed cottage which has been furnished and equipped with great sensitivity and a wonderful use of colour. Nearby, the owner has an art Studio, The Oracle Gallery. Nicola Gibbs is a professional artist and through her art workshops, inspires people of all ages. There is also a farm shop called The Pantry, selling local produce and a highly rated Vegan restaurant.

The cottage provides spacious accommodation with furnishings and artefacts from around the world. It has been renovated with care to reveal beautiful ornamental stone fireplaces, ancient beams and flagstone floors. There are soft, cream fitted carpets throughout much of the cottage. On the ground floor there is a large open plan sitting room with sofas and chairs, a statement stone fire place, flat screen television with Freeview and DVD player; a dining area; a kitchen with fitted units and a breakfast area, a gas range style cooker, microwave, Belfast sink and refrigerator (a freezer and washing machine are provided in a separate utility area); a large conservatory style room, with a further area of comfortable seating and access to the courtyard garden.

A door opens from a small passageway to reveal a staircase leading up to three double bedrooms. The master bedroom is particularly spacious with a charming, French style bed and an en-suite shower room with a built in shower basin and WC. There is a family bathroom with a free standing Victorian style bath, basin and WC. A travel cot and high chair, and a folding bed to enable two children to sleep separately can also be provided. We regret that it is not possible to use the open fires. Wi-Fi is included.

The cottage has a courtyard with a covered pond, garden furniture and a barbecue so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. A five minute walk also leads to a private woodland area with garden furniture where visitors can relax, enjoy a barbecue and children can play games. Here, there are views across nearby fields and red squirrels can often be seen. Two cars can be parked to the rear of the cottage. Additional cars can be parked in a quiet lane within a three minute walk. There is a good bus service from Godshill to Shanklin, Ventnor and Newport. From Newport buses can be caught onwards to most parts of the island. The cottage is adjacent to a great restaurant, plus a small village shop and post office are within a two minute walk.

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

The cottage is a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. A wonderful mix of styles and textures. The conservatory was a great bonus - especially as we had two small children with us who sometimes wanted their own space or a different space in which to play. There is a great deal to do in and around the village and plenty more things just a short drive Read moreaway. Parking was really convenient and there is a great Vegan restaurant just across from the parking area - another bonus. Hide

The cottage was stunning. Beautifully designed. Comfy, cosy and so clean. And its position in the village was amazing. We were surrounded by every business you would need on holiday. We will be back next year.
