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.

A comfortable cottage in a quiet location, well equipped for those that like to prepare their own meals. The heaters available kept the cottage warm on the colder evenings and soon warmed it up in the mornings. A lovely weeks holiday.
