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.

Latest news*** we have Barn Owls nesting in our garden!

Perfect long weekend for a family of fossil-hunting beach lovers :-)

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a long weekend at this cottage. We had such a great stay! Chris and Nicky were welcoming and friendly and the annex had everything that we needed.

Our two boys (1 and 5) loved the garden and trampoline.

It's perfectly located- in the deepest countryside but really close to the beaches and local towns.

Our favourite day out was to Compton bay. We happened upon a fossil tour which we soon joined and spent the day collecting various beach treasures and posing on top of dinosaur footprints. Check out 'Island Gems' for other tours in the future as they really were fab.

Top tip for the island in general is to take cash for the parking machines. We are used to using a card to pay and were stuck on a couple of occasions by not having coins.

Would really recommend this cottage to anyone!

We had a great weekend. Cottage is everything we hoped for. Clean, modern and very comfortable. Nicky and Chris were lovely and helpful. Our two girls LOVED their garden and said that was the best bit about our weekend. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

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.

The sandy beaches at Shanklin and Ventnor are just 10 minutes drive away.


There is a local shop that sells essential foods just a 2 minute walk away. The property is also on a main bus route, a mile from the village of Godshill with its pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.
