This attractive cottage stands near one of the Isle of Wight’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby is a picturesque pond with an abundance of wildlife, plus two large trout lakes which abound with a variety of birds making them a wonderful location for keen birdwatchers. This is also a superb cycling and walking area with the nearby Stenbury Trail which extends from Cowes to Ventnor, and the Tennyson Trail from Carisbrooke Castle to the Needles, on the western tip of the island. The sandy beaches of Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor are a short drive away, or you could visit Osborne House, the island home of Queen Victoria. The market town of Newport has a variety of shops and restaurants.
On entering this tasteful barn conversion, which offers stunning rural views from all the main rooms, you will find yourself in the pretty and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner.
