A stylish barn conversion, boasting fantastic views over the countryside. A great place to enjoy a family getaway on the beautiful Isle of Wight with a variety of things to keep the family entertained.

What’s finer in life than gazing out over the river and meadows from the wide-windowed mezzanine of your country island cottage? Families and friends will adore this fusion of rural history and sleek contemporary style, set in idyllic countryside 2.5 miles south of East Cowes. Cowes dates back to 11th-century Viking settlements, and its 1000-year history imbues it with immense beauty and charm. Bask on beaches at promenaded East Cowes (3 miles), the shingly sea-lane at Cowes and Gurnard, with its lovely Solent views (both 4 miles ferry/8 road). Queen Victoria said of enchanting Osborne House (2 miles) – “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot”.

 

Set along a private drive, this beautiful barn conversion has been lavished with love, maximising light, air, space and rural charm. Up two steps and through the hall, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a magnificent space, and opening the patio doors lets nature in. Wake in the blissful ground-floor double bedrooms and savour a garden breakfast. After thrilling days of sea, sand, steam trains, cruises, water sports and wildlife, gather round the glowing wood burner to reminisce and plan new thrills. Prepare sumptuous seafood feasts in the sleek, bright kitchen, and enjoy your culinary delights on the wide decking. The first-floor king-size bedrooms share the mezzanine with style and tranquillity; it’s a spectacular platform for viewing the wonders beyond.

 

Find more fabulous beaches at peaceful Thorness Bay (8 miles), a Site of Special Scientific Interest; Ryde (5.5 miles) has vast stretches of sand at low tide – the west beach is quieter; Spring Vale (7 miles) is superb for water sports; Seaview and Seagrove Beaches (8 miles) fringe a charming Edwardian sailing resort. Discover the haunted history of Carisbrooke Castle (4.5 miles) and the myriad independent shops, pubs, galleries, museums and eateries of this remarkable island.

Middle Barn is a lovely place, well equipped, great kitchen and lounge and very comfy beds! The only way it could be improved if it was picked up and plonked down off a country lane rather than off the East Cowes road, which is fairly busy.you cant hear the road from the barn but some patience is needed when pulling out in a car. All in all, a loveRead morely place for a relaxed holiday Hide

Property was ideal for us as we had two elderly guests in our party. The two downstairs bedrooms were a godsend as they could move around the property without aid. Kitchen area was spacious and communal eating area worked really well

Lovely spot to commute from in the car (roadworks in Newport mean using side roads which mean you see more of the island anyway).

Good size property in quiet location and generally well presented. We have raised some minor issues that the owner could easily resolve. However, people in the downstairs bedrooms found it difficult to fully relax as there was a problem with a lots of beetles running around.

This is a beautiful barn conversion in a great location with easy access to the ferry and gorgeous walks / beaches. It was clean and well decorated / equipped. If you're going with a dog, the garden is not secure and the dog can get out on to open farmland which can't be accessed by people as there is no gate. If you're going with children, the bedRead mores are all double and cannot be split into singles. There adjoining home on both sides of the barn. Hide

We stayed for a week and our only regret was not booking for two! The house was amazing, perfect for families and would be great for adults too. The location was ideal for touring the island. We will most definitely be returning next year.

Great house and location- we loved it! Just got back from 4 nights at middle barn with my husband and 2 kids. My parents joined us for a night too. House is gorgeous. 4 double bedrooms and en-suites in 2. All the facilities you would expect - they have thought of everything. Even have Bluetooth speakers and Netflix on tap! Not to mention the cupboaRead morerd full of games and DVDs - we all had such a great time as did we. Location amazing and their recommendations perfect. We would definitely go again Hide
