Self-contained ground-floor property offering comfortable accommodation for two guests on the owner’s farm in the quiet hamlet of Whiteley Bank, just a short drive from a choice of beaches.
Fowlsdown Barn End stands in the hamlet of Whiteley Bank on the south east of the Isle of Wight. It is within a five minute drive of the coastal resort of Shanklin - with its sandy beach, shops, restaurants, old village and amusements, plus the picturesque village of Godshill with thatched cottages, a beautiful church, gift shops, tea shops, great public houses and a restaurant for meals. The other coastal resorts of Sandown and Ventnor are only a ten minute drive away, as are fishing lakes, golf courses, boat trips and horse riding. This is also a fantastic walking and cycling area with nearby footpaths to the coast and to rolling downs.
This lovely self contained wing of Fowlsdown Farmhouse offers accommodation equipped and furnished in a style which is of a high standard and compliments the building and surroundings. It is largely open plan with an attractive sitting room area with a sofa, arm chair, flat screen television with Freeview and DVD player; a dining area beside a window; a well equipped fitted kitchen with a tiled floor, an electric cooker and hob, microwave, under counter fridge/freezer (24 hour washing service available); a charming bedroom with a king-size bed, small dressing table and fitted wardrobe, with curtains to separate it from the living area; a tiled bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and W.C.
The accommodation is all on one level apart from an external step up to the entrance door. Central heating and electricity are without extra charge. A travel cot and high chair can be provided if required. At the rear of Fowlsdown Barn End is a sunny fenced courtyard with garden furniture so that meals or your morning coffee can be enjoyed outside. One car can be parked in the gravel drive beside the wing. For those that prefer to leave the car at home, there is a regular bus service to Shanklin and Newport via Godshill within a five minute walk. Nearby places of interest include the donkey sanctuary, the medieval castle of Carisbrooke, Ventnor Botanic Garden and the Roman Villa.
