Thoughtfully maintained Grade II listed cottage sleeping four guests with attractive period features and a pretty, enclosed garden.
This Grade II listed cottage built of Island stone, dates back to 1695 and has been sympathetically converted from an ancient stone barn - being one of a pair of charming cottages, divided by an impressive central arch leading into a large courtyard with pretty gardens and four additional cottages. It is pleasantly situated in a quiet, rural hamlet in attractive countryside - there are great walks directly from the cottage to nearby woodlands and downs. It is also only one and a half miles from the seaside resort of Shanklin with its sweeping beaches.
Dairymaid has been renovated to a high standard and where possible, original features have been retained. It has been attractively furnished and well-equipped in keeping with the character of the cottage. The light and spacious living room boasts an impressive inglenook fireplace and French doors which open onto the secluded rear garden. It is furnished with a leather sofa and chairs and has television with Sky Q and DVD player. There is also a relaxing dining area overlooking the garden and a separate large kitchen with hardwood work tops, a Belfast sink, a range style cooker with electric double ovens and gas hob, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A tumble dryer is also provided.
There are two stylish bedrooms, one double with king size bed and one twin room, along with a bathroom with a bath, W.C basin and walk in shower. Electricity and central heating are provided at no extra charge up to temperatures of 22 degrees. If higher temperatures are required, additional heating charges apply at cost price. The accommodation is all on one level apart from one step in the living room. A highchair and travel cot can be provided. Telephone and WiFi internet is available.
Dairymaid has an enclosed walled garden with fragrant plants all around where visitors can relax. There is garden furniture and a barbecue so that meals can be enjoyed alfresco. A gate from the garden opens onto the inner courtyard to go back under the arch to an area of garden at the front of the cottage, with parking spaces for two cars. There is a regular bus service within half a mile, and general stores within one mile. For Christmas, the cottage has a tree, decorations and lights.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
