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.

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.

We have just returned from a week's stay. The cottage is lovely and very well equipped - you have absolutely everything you need. It was spotlessly clean. The owners were very welcoming and they are available should you need them. The location is excellent and the views outstanding. We ate most meals in the garden. You do need to be aware that the Read moretrack to the cottage is unmade so if you have a very low car\ sports car this could be an issue for you. We would definitely stay here again. Hide

Squire Thatcher's barn is ideal for dog walking being close to the Newport/Sandown cycle path. The cottage is very well equipped with plenty of plates/cups and plenty of cooking pans/dishes which was a nice surprise. the whole cottage has a lovely welcoming feel.
