This charming, stone cottage was converted from an old blacksmith shop and is set within hundreds of acres of arable farmland. It is the ideal spot for exploring the wonders of the scenic south coast.
This detached farm cottage enjoys breath-taking rural views and is less than a mile from the south coast of the Isle of Wight. It is situated on a 400 acre arable farm which is home to a small number of cows and sheep. The seaside town of Ventnor is within a five-minute drive, as are several small bays including the picturesque Steephill Cove. The larger sandy beaches of Shanklin and Sandown are a 15 minute drive away. This cottage is in a wonderful walking and cycling area. Visitors are welcome to join footpaths and bridleways directly from the cottage, which link to renowned Island walks such as the Stenbury and Worsley Trails, extending from the coast to the centre of the Isle of Wight.
