Property code: IC128

This charming thatched cottage is located on the coast, close to the centre of Brighstone, and has been decorated with fresh colours following a classic, nautical theme.

This pretty thatched cottage is attractively situated in the grounds of Gillmans House, a listed property close to the centre of Brighstone - a village with many thatched cottages, an ancient church, general stores, a public house, newsagents and hairdressers. The village is surrounded by picture-postcard West Wight countryside and is less than a mile from the beach and National Trust coastline. Behind the village are the Brighstone Downs. Footpaths can be followed from here to the renowned Tennyson Downs and The Needles. The spectacular coastal views from these downs are breath-taking. Paths in the opposite direction lead to the medieval castle of Carisbrooke and the market town of Newport, close to the centre of the Island.

Stable Cottage has been converted from a barn that dates back to the 17th Century. It is a Grade II listed building that is built of stone and wood. The cottage has been furnished and equipped in a traditional style to a high standard. It provides comfortable and attractive accommodation for two people. There is a large double bedroom with a king-size bed, flat screen television/Freeview/DVD and an en-suite bathroom with bath, hand shower, basin and WC; an open plan sitting room with a sofa, television with Freesat and DVD, plus radio and iPod dock; a pleasant dining area and a fitted kitchen with an electric hob with two hot plates, a combination microwave with convection oven/grill, refrigerator and freezer (washing machine and tumble drying service available). Oil filled radiators keep the cottage warm in colder weather and all heating and electricity are provided free of charge. (Please be aware that there are two steps between the bedroom door and the sitting room. WiFi internet connection available.

Stable Cottage has its own secluded garden where visitors can relax in the sunshine. Garden furniture and a parasol are provided. A car can be parked alongside the cottage. A rural bus service and village shops are within three minutes walk. We regret that it is not possible to have a barbecue, candles or naked flames in the vicinity of the cottage because of the thatched roof. The secluded sandy bays of Brighstone Brook and Compton are within a short drive of the cottage. The small towns of Freshwater and Yarmouth are also nearby and they offer a choice of restaurants and shops. Mottistone Manor House, a National Trust property is only a mile from Brighstone, and Queen Victoria's Island home - Osborne House is within a 30-minute drive.

The cottage is exactly as described, hosts are friendly and helpful and very generous. The garden is large and private and everything has been thought of indoors. There is even a heated airer to dry towels! The village is in our opinion one of the best on the island with fantastic village shop, wonderful little museum, easy access to the coast pathRead more and other paths for walkers; pub has mixed reviews but we found it to be good standard pub fare at a reasonable price, but lacking in atmosphere.

Perfect for a single visitor or couple to West Wight. Excellent welcome gifts to help settle in quickly. Warm and cosy when the weather is less than perfect. So close to shops and walks and beach that a car is only required to visit further afield across the island.

A lovely cottage and lovely hosts. Well thought out welcome pack. Lovely private garden with table, chairs and loungers. Due to height in the bathroom there's no full shower, so be prepared to take a bath. Or as we did, take a kneeling / sitting shower using the combination taps / mixer shower head if you're able.

Your description was perfectly adequate; I think its the personal, caring touches by the owners that made this cottage 'out of the ordinary'. Brighstone though; an odd little(well, not so little) village on an island dependant on tourism; no cafe, + a very poor pub; I'm sure theres a market for these 'essentials' to holidaymakers+locals alike.
