This lovingly renovated former Victorian stable block boasts stylish and bright open-plan accommodation for memorable family holidays by the sea.

Milton Stables is situated on the south west of the Isle of Wight within a five-minute walk of Freshwater Bay and Tennyson Down. This is a wonderful walking and cycling area with easy access to the coastal path - a particularly beautiful route westwards to the Needles, or eastwards to St Catherine's lighthouse on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight. It is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a variety of small coves where swimming, surfing, paddling and boating can be enjoyed, as well as a two-mile long sandy beach at nearby Compton Bay. There are general stores, tea shops and restaurants within a five-minute walk of the cottage. A two-minute drive also takes you to the town of Freshwater with supermarkets and a variety of shops, inns and restaurants, plus a sports centre with gym and swimming pool.

This is a detached property situated in a quiet crescent. As its name suggests, it has been converted and extended from a Victorian stable block. The skilfully renovated building provides spacious accommodation with a light and airy feel. French doors open from the courtyard into a central hallway, with stairs leading up to a double room containing a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, basin and WC, plus a cosy sitting room with attic style sloping ceilings, two sofas and a wall mounted TV with Freeview and a DVD player.

On the ground floor there is a spacious open-plan living room with a comfortable sofa and a central dining area beside French doors opening into the courtyard. The interconnected fitted kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, sink, dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator and freezer. There is also a twin bedroom with flat screen television with Freeview, and wet room with shower, basin and WC on the ground floor. A travel cot and high chair are available. Central heating and electricity are provided without extra charge. The cottage has a tiled courtyard style garden at the front of the property which is gated and fenced. Garden furniture is provided. There is space inside the gated courtyard to park one small car but this does involve a fairly tight manoeuvre. If you have a large car you may need to park in the road beside the stables. The courtyard is also more spacious without a car. A golf course within a ten-minute walk.

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.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 ground floor twin and 1king-size
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer
  • TV/DVD
  • Central heating and electric included
  • Enclosed courtyard garden with furniture
  • Bed linen included 1 dog welcome

Would definitely recommend this cottage, a lovely location being only a short stroll to the bay. The cottage itself is very well equipped and made our first trip to the island a very enjoyable one.
