Property code: IC092

This Grade II-listed 18th century barn has been beautifully converted to offer home-from-home ground floor accommodation in a peaceful rural setting.

The Paper Barn occupies an idyllic position on a 12-acre farm where horses are kept. The farm is surrounded by mesmerising open countryside. It is a delightful walking area and visitors can follow footpaths over the Downs from close to the cottage. The Paper Barn adjoins Squire Thatchers Barn and sits at the edge of a grassy courtyard which is often adorned by ducks. On the other sides of the courtyard, are the 18th century farmhouse, threshing barn and six stables where horses are kept.

The cottage has been sensitively converted from an 18th century Grade II Listed stone barn. It has been furnished and equipped with care and has attractive open views at the rear across fields to the Downs. The accommodation is all on the ground floor and follows an open-plan design which gives the feeling of space. There is a light and pleasant sitting room with comfortable sofas, television, DVD and a hi-fi system. The floor in this area is furnished with rugs over the original flagstones. There is a welcoming dining area and newly fitted kitchen with electric cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washer/dryer.

The cottage has two bedrooms - one double, and one twin room, plus a bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. A travel cot and highchair can be provided. Electric heaters keep the cottage warm in colder weather. Heating and electricity are provided free of charge. The cottage has a wireless broadband internet (WiFi) connection available at a small extra charge.

There is a lovely terrace at the rear of Paper Barn with open views across the lawn and fields towards the downs. Garden furniture is provided. A barbecue is available on request, free of charge. The lawned garden has a small pear tree and is a relaxing place to unwind. It is only a ten-minute walk from the rural village of Newchurch, which has a great public house for meals. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are a ten-minute drive away. The market town of Newport is within a 15-minute drive. Parking spaces for two cars are adjacent to the garden. Access to the cottage is along a private lane which is bumpy in places. A rural bus service is within a quarter of a mile.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a lovely stay recently. The location is great for a quiet, relaxing base with amazing views from the garden. The cottage itself had eveything we needed for a comfortable stay and the owner was just lovely with great local knowledge.

Gorgeous location and a wonderful view. Definitely recommended, and with two adjacent cottages very good for larger parties . New church is convenient for the North and east of the Island and the owner is very friendly and helpful. The access road to the cottage prior to the Private Road has deteriorated and is very bumpy as is the road leading to Read morethe parking for Sauire Thatchers Barn but overall definitely recommended Hide

Nice cottage, garden was lovely although not quite dog proof as a neighbours dog kept getting through the wire fencing! Would suggest to owners that a larger sofa might be advisable as rather cosy for 4 adults.

On the plus side the cottage is in a great location and has all the basic functionality and equipment you would expect in a SC cottage. On the downside it doesn't have a homely/comfortable feel. This was exacerbated by a strong smell of damp which made all of us wheezy with asthma. The road to the car park was too bumpy/overgrown. The interior is aRead more little tired and didn't have some additional extras e.g. blanket that would have gone a long way. No welcome pack so bring all you need. No BBQ. Hide

Paper Barn was an ideal place to get away from it all, with the ducks and horses in the yard, it's an animal lovers delight. Approximately a mile to the village pub, which is worth a visit and a pleasant walk. The cottage is comfortable and the views from the garden are fantastic, we had a great stay there and will be returning.

Nice cottage in a great location. Road is a bit bumpy but just means you have to go slow. The cottage has.everything you need although is a little basic. There was no bbq so you will need to.bring your own. Definitely recommend staying here as it is really close to all the major family attractions e.g. robin hill, black gang chine, shanklin etc.

The property and view was nice but there was build work going on next door which we were not aware of and we could not stay in the lodge in the morning or late after noon or enjoy the garden or views due to the distraction of the noise.

Fabulous location for this small cottage. I think the pictures are a little deceptive regarding the size. . Ventilation for the bathroom is poor and on arrival the cottage smelt damp. Cleanliness was ok but I would have preferred to have a Hoover so I could keep the floors clean. A little on the pricey side but I guess this was due to Covid 19 and Read morepeak holiday season. Having said all this we enjoyed our time in the Isle of Wight Hide

This is a truly dog friendly cottage. Weve stayed in many that say they are but when you arrive there are rules about where the dogs can and cant go ie no dogs upstairs no dogs on furniture. There was none of that here. Truly a holiday for all your family
