Introduction

Mokolodi Wight is a grade 2 listed building which is part of a classic Isle of Wight farmyard of great charm and historic interest. The stone barn next to Mokolodi Wight was built in 1790.

It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms leading off a large living area with stunning views of Arreton and Mersley Downs. Why the name?...
