This pretty, Grade II listed thatched cottage is nestled amongst beautiful countryside, within 3.5 acres of grounds. Perfect for a cosy retreat for couples or small families.
This pretty thatched cottage with leaded light windows stands in rolling countryside, only a few minutes walk from Calbourne Water Mill. The cottage was designed by John Nash as a lodge for Westover Manor and is a Grade II listed building with magnificent grounds of three and a half acres. This is a spectacular walking area with footpaths very close to the cottage leading to Newbridge Calbourne and to the downs above Brighstone, linking with the renowned Tennyson trail to Freshwater Bay. The golden beaches and tranquil coves of Brighstone Brook and Freshwater are all within a 10 to 15 minute drive. The market town of Newport and Carisbrooke Castle are also within a ten-minute drive.
Sweetwater Lodge provides attractive accommodation, furnished and equipped with care. It has a hexagonal shaped fitted kitchen equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, slim line dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine; a spacious open plan sitting room with comfortable sofas, flat screen television/Freeview/DVD player; a dining area beside a window; a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and two windows overlooking the garden; a twin bedroom; a spacious bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and W.C. Central heating and electricity is without extra charge. A travel cot and high chair can be provided. (Children need to be closely supervised due to the proximity of the stream and pond. Fires, candles or barbecues are not permitted due to the thatched roof).
Immediately beside the cottage is an enclosed, south facing courtyard with garden furniture. Nearby, there is also a summer house for visitors use. The large grounds of the lodge are enchanting with lawns, beautiful woodland, an attractive pond and glittering stream. Two/three cars can be parked in the drive. The Lodge is set back from the road which provides a link between Freshwater and Newport. The public house at Calbourne and the tea shop/pottery at Chessell are both just a two-minute drive away. A bus service is not available nearby.
