About the property

Cottage near Godshill, Isle of Wight, England - Peaceful Rural Location, 10 Minutes From Beaches, surrounded by footpaths

The Annex at Barrow Cottage is a single story extension to the cottage, with use of a large garden and paddock. It is situated in one of the loveliest parts of the Isle of Wight set amidst rolling green fields and close to the picturesque village of Godshill in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is great walking country, surrounded by footpaths, yet is still just a ten minute drive to the beaches of Shanklin and Ventnor. It's great for families and for couples who just want to relax.

We had a lovely short break here. The cottage annex was really nice and comfy and had everything we needed. Chris and Nicky were really friendly and welcoming. We would highly recommend.

Brilliant, beautiful cottage for kids and walking.

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Nicky were very friendly and welcoming on our arrival and throughout. The property was beautiful, modern and immaculate and Chris and Nicky added touches like providing tea bags, coffee, soap and washing up liquid, which is not always provided in self catering accommodation - a welcome touch. Our 9 year old boys LOVED it. Plenty of space to play and run around. Chris and Nicky put up some games for them in the garden.

A great place for walks with public footpaths alongside the property. Stunning views during the local walks. Walking distance from Godshill too. Will definitely be back. Thank you so much for a brilliant and memorable weekend Chris and Nicky.

Ideal location for a walking holiday on the Isle of Wight

  • 5 of 5

Great base for getting around the island. There is a bus stop outside the cottage so you can leave the car and take the bus.

Great walking nearby but a good base for an attempt to walk round the island

Excellent property, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay here. Where the cottage is located you can easily explore the other parts of the Island without spending too much time in the car. The property is maintained to a high standard and nicely decorated throughout, with many facilities you might not get at other holiday homes. There was a couple of nice restaurants in Godshill that a worth visiting, so did not have to travel far in the evening. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable of the island. Overall we thought this cottage was well worth the money, and will defiantly be returning.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this lovely property. In particular there is a large outdoor space, and outdoor toys to play with for the children, which they loved. The owners are very hospitable and knowledgable.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the isle of wight and won't be our last. Burrow cottage was an idle place to stay for our family holiday, it's in a good location with a lot of the attractions close by. The owners Chris and Nicky were lovely, very friendly and knowledgable about the area. Could not have found a better accommodation for our holiday.
