This quaint and cosy barn conversion is an ideal retreat for a couple or small family, sleeping up to three in one bedroom. A semi detached conversion of an 18th Century barn, this cottage lies in the small hamlet of Yafford, in the south of the lovely Isle of Wight, and makes a superb romantic base. There is character throughout the cottage, with unusual exposed stone walls, wooden flooring and exposed beams, while the actual accommodation is well-equipped, comfortable and set in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse. The bedroom has a 5' double bed and also an option folding single. There is also a small, private garden to the property. Bea...ches at Atherfield and Ventnor are within easy reach, as is cycling, walking, Blackgang Chine and picturesque Brighstone village.
Amenities: Electric heating system. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV/DVD, selection of books/games. Electricity inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Travel cot & highchair on request. Off road parking for one car. Small private, enclosed lawned garden with furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Village shop & pub 1.5 miles. Note: There is a large pond close to the cottage. Note: As the folding bed, travel cot and highchair are shared between both properties, these items are available on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your own bedding and linen for the folding bed and cot.
Region: The Isle of Wight, with its beaches, unspoiled scenery, rich heritage and over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths is a walker's paradise, or if sailing is your thing, the renowned annual Cowes Week is not to be missed.
Town: Yafford is a hamlet at the southern end of the Isle of Wight, which is well known for its watermill, dating from the 18th Century. Yafford makes a great spot for birdwatchers and walkers, and the 'Round the Island' cycle route, on which Yafford is a stop, makes the hamlet popular with cyclists too. For beach bunnies, the sands at Atherfield are a mile away, and Ventnor is close by too, as is the family attraction Blackgang Chine, while the lovely Shanklin Chine and popular resorts of Ryde and Sandown are just over the other side of the Island (easily reached in under an hour). The village of Brighstone is 2 miles away, and Brightone Bay is also just down the road.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

A welcome escape from the Olympic madness.

Living so near the olympic stadium we'd planned for months to get away from the crowds, road closures and hype. This getaway was perfect. A lovely spot, very quiet and isolated, near the sea and clifftop walks. And some very good eating places nearby. A plain but comfortable cottage, perfect for 2 people or a small family. An extra is the little sunny garden at the back. The owner, who is on site, is friendly, welcoming and helpful but also very discreet. We would definitely go there again.
