Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Isle of Wight and situated in the grounds of a delightful farm, this lovely cottage is a perfect base for a relaxing holiday.

Magnolia Cottage is situated on a farm in one of the loveliest parts of the Isle of Wight, lying at the foot of Appuldurcombe Down and above the picturesque village of Godshill in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A pleasant ten-minute stroll through the beech copse and across the fields leads to the centre of Godshill. This village is renowned for its church and pretty thatched cottages. It has a variety of tea shops and restaurants, as well as pleasant public houses. There is also immediate access from the farm courtyard to footpaths and bridleways, leading to Appuldurcombe and along the Stenbury Trail to the coast at Ventnor. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are under a twenty-minute drive away.

Above the arable fields of the farm lie sweeping open downlands, where sheep graze and over which guests are welcome to walk along the marked trails. From the top of these downs there are panoramic views across the Isle of Wight towards the Hampshire and Dorset coastline. Buzzards and skylarks are often seen from these downs. In nearby woodland Red Squirrels and badgers can be glimpsed, as well as a variety of wild flowers. In the spring, the bluebells carpet the woods in a blue haze. In the farm courtyard, owls and woodpeckers are frequent visitors.

Magnolia Cottage is one of three adjoining cottages that are south facing and overlook the attractive farm courtyard with its ancient Grade II listed barns and traditional farmhouse which dates back to the 17th century. From the rear of the cottage there are spectacular views stretching across the open fields to the church tower of Godshill, with St. Georges Downs beyond. The cottage has been carefully converted from an old barn and is a real home from home. It is furnished in a traditional style and is centrally heated. There is a spacious sitting room for relaxing with a flat screen television/Freeview/DVD, plus a pleasant dining area next to a window which looks onto the fields.

There are two bedrooms; one double and one twin room with floor to ceiling beams between the beds and a sloped ceiling on one side; a bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, and also a downstairs cloakroom with a second W.C. and hand basin. The cottage has a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Guests have shared use with the other cottages of a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. A travel cot and high chair are available. Heating and domestic electricity at no extra charge, and WiFi internet is available.

There is a sunny, fenced patio at the front of the cottage overlooking the fountain. Garden furniture is also provided. Within a minutes walk of the cottage is an open lawned area suitable for ball games. Here, visitors can relax with their children or enjoy a barbecue. Beautiful carpets of bluebells can be a joy to see in nearby woodland in late April and early May. Car parking spaces are available close to the cottage. A regular bus service and shop are within a ten-minute walk.

Very comfortable dog friendly cottage in a beautiful location. Ideal starting point for a network of footpaths in all directions. Two excellent pubs within walking distance and a wonderful farm shop just outside the village. The place is very clean, with good heating, hot water and comfortable beds. It is our fourth time staying here and no doubt wRead moree will return. Hide

Our priority in booking was considering suitability for our dogs. The location of Magnolia was ideal, with easy access to open country, and from this point of view, we would award 5 Stars. We enjoyed our stay. However, if we had not had to consider the dogs, we would not rate Magnolia above average, compared to many others we have stayed at over thRead moree years, and on balance would not recommend it to friends.
