Converted from an 18th century milking parlour and nestling on the outskirts of a picturesque village, this lovely stone cottage offers a charming holiday home in the heart of the Isle of Wight.

This traditional stone cottage occupies an attractive position in a peaceful country lane on the outskirts of Godshill. It has been converted from the original milking parlour of Lower Yard Farm, and the building is thought to date back to the 1700s. The cottage is within one mile of an Equestrian centre and most of the surrounding fields are home to horses. The centre of the picturesque village of Godshill, with its pretty thatched cottages, restaurants and tea rooms is only three quarters of a mile away. The market town of Newport with its collection of shops and medieval castle is within a five-minute drive. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are all within a 15-minute drive.

The Hayloft has recently been completely renovated. The cottage has been furnished and equipped to a high standard with central heating, fitted carpets and a plentiful supply of hot water. It provides attractive and comfortable accommodation for three people in two bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a well-equipped kitchen with fitted units, an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher; a charming sitting room furnished with comfortable sofas, a wall mounted Smart TV and wood burning stove. WiFi broadband internet is available at this cottage.

Stairs lead up from here to a bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and WC, and two bedrooms - one spacious double room with a king-sized bed, and one single bedroom with a 4ft bed (this is designated as a single bedroom as the bed is accessible from only one side). A travel cot and high chair can be provided if required. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer available in a nearby utility room, use of which is shared with the adjoining Milk Parlour Cottage. Heating and electricity is without extra charge.

The cottage has an beautiful walled courtyard-style garden at the rear, and there is a fenced area of garden at the front with a lawn, bird table and shrubs. Red Squirrels and a variety of birds are frequent visitors. Garden furniture is provided so that meals can be enjoyed outside. There is a parking area for three cars near the cottage and a regular bus service is within five minutes walk.

Well appointed and very cosy, we were particularly relieved to find that the garden and patio areas to the front and rear were enclosed sufficient to prevent our small dog from going where she shouldn't. Great access to footpaths and bridleways and a first class pub The Chequers is a fifteen minute walk away.

Lovely holiday accommodation, comfortable and well equipped and we can warmly recommend. A rural position ideally placed to get to all parts of the island with ease. Our dog loved it too with enclosed garden front and back and there's a public footpath and bridleway just a few yards from the cottage perfect for early morning walks. A short drive awRead moreay on the road to Merstone is a wonderful place for dog walks along the route of the old railway track. There's ample free car parking there too. Hide

Lovely cottage. Enjoyed our stay. Very clean and equipped to a high standard. Very safe front and back garden for dogs. The location is pretty. Local businesses use the Lane at the front ,with occasional traffic. It's not possible to walk into Godshill as there are no footpaths and the road at the top of the lane is busy. Dog walking is generally lRead moreimited in the surrounding area due to private land all around, although there is a wooded area via a bridal path. The helpful owner lives next door Hide
