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 and amusements, plus the picturesque village of Godshill with thatched cottages, a beautiful church, gift shops, tea shops and two great public houses for meals, plus a restaurant. 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 traditional style to a high standard. 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, refrigerator and small freezer (24 hour washing service available); a charming bedroom with a king-size bed 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 internal step near the front door and one at the entrance. 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 can be enjoyed outside. One car can be parked in the gravel drive beside the wing. 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 Botanical Garden and the Roman Villa.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

It was a bijou cottage. Comfortable and had everything one needed in the kitchen. Would be nice to be able to operate the heating independently

Reviewed by John 31st August 2018

My wife and I spent a most enjoyable week at Fowlsdown Barn End, Shanklin from the 19th - 26th May 2017.We found the accommodation provided all that we required.The kitchen, lounge and bedroom were all open plan but the bedroom could be curtained off if required.The property is decorated to a very high standard and is ideally situated half way betwRead moreeen Shanklin and Godshill, though anywhere on the island can be reached in less than 45 mins.The owner Sara and her two lovely dogs made us most welcome and we would not hesitate in booking this property again when we next visit the island.
