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 lovely beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor can be found within a 10- 20 minute drive. 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.

The Paper. Barn was a gorgeous stone holiday cottage. We loved being in a rural farm location with views across Arreton Downs. Looking out on to the stable yard complete with the resident ducks was a treat too. The barn was cosy and welcoming, tidy and with everything we needed. Comfy beds and room to relax.

A great place to stay. Spacious, well equipped and a good location, with shops and amenities close by. Plenty of interesting places within 20 minute drive. Local pub a great asset, but you need to book. The whole surroundings (except the road) were well maintained. A credit to its owners. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely cottage in great setting. Very peaceful and really enjoyed the garden and the view over the stable yard. The owners George and Clare were very friendly and George gave us a tour of the garden which as keen gardeners we enjoyed. A relaxing stay in a pretty and well-equiped cottage.

Just got back from a wonderful stay at Paperbarn. The owner introduced himself when we arrived and was very helpful and friendly. The place is a great size, very clean and everything you need. Location wise its perfect and took less than half an hour to most of the sites. Would most definitely come back.

We loved finding a Christmas tree in our lounge twinkling to greet us! Lots of great walks from cottage, muddy as expected in winter, and never far to drive for beach walking. It was fun having a family Christmas using two adjacent cottages. It gave space for all, young and old.

This was a lovely cosy cottage. Evenings were getting chilly and the heating worked in minutes. Plenty of everything you need for a relaxing stay. Watching the ducks in the yard was a lovely way to relax. The rear view was stunning and the garden perfect for our very large dog. The road is a little lumpy but manageable if you drive slowly.

We had a great week at Paper Barn Cottage. It's pretty, clean, comfortable, well equipped & in a lovely location, although the access is poor. The state of the lane is so bad in places, it spoils things. It is peaceful, the views are lovely & it's so well placed for exploring.

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.

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.
