This pretty stone cottage is a delightful 18th century Grade II listed barn conversion situated on a lovely 12 acre farm surrounded by beautiful countryside and ideal for enjoying the idyllic coast.

This pretty stone cottage is situated on a 12-acre farm with horses, surrounded by beautiful open countryside. Scenic walks can be enjoyed directly from the cottage and footpaths can be followed to join the Bembridge Trail over the downs. The rural village of Newchurch which has a great public house for meals, is only a 10 to 15 minute walk away. The sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are within a ten-minute drive.

Squire Thatchers Barn which adjoins Paper Barn, has been carefully converted from an 18th Century Grade II Listed stone barn. It overlooks an open grassy courtyard which is often adorned by ducks. Stables are on two sides of the courtyard, and an 18th Century threshing barn and farmhouse are on the other side. The cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms with two bath/shower rooms. It has a spacious open-plan sitting room with comfortable sofas, television/Freeview/DVD/ video recorder and a hi-fi system. There is a pleasant dining area by a window with stunning views across fields towards the downs. The fitted kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. A washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer are also provided.

The cottage has three pretty bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a twin and a double room; a bathroom with a bath and a separate shower, WC and sink. A spiral staircase leads up to an additional double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with sink and WC. The cottage is warmed by storage heaters and additional electric heaters can be provided. Heating and electricity are free of charge. A travel cot and high chair can be made available. The cottage also has a wireless broadband internet (WiFi) connection available.

At the rear of the cottage there is a fenced garden with mesmerising open views across fields to Arreton and Mersley Downs.

The pretty cottage is very comfortably fitted out and has wonderful views from the back garden. Lovely walking countryside. Excellent pub in village offering good food.

Reviewed by Sheelagh 5th April 2019

A really lovely cottage with lovely views to match. The rooms were all a good size and comfortable. The garden was mainly lawn and the terrace had a good size table and chairs which we were lucky enough to make use of in April. We were delighted with the property and probably the biggest compliment we could pay is that none of us wanted to leave. WRead moree are planning to book again as it is well situated to explore the IoW. Hide
