Each has off street parking and a private garden. Dogs are welcome (other pets on a discretionary basis). There is parking adjacent to the cottage and lots of outside space, ideal for children to run around, in safety.

From the barns there is extensive access to footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways and it is only five minutes drive from the sea. There are great walks to the picturesque villages of Shorwell and Godshill. The idyllic village of Shorwell has old thatched cottages and a lovely church that dates back to the reign of Edward III.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Pig Sty for one week 4-11 July 2015 and absolutely loved it. It is very well equipped and furnished and would highly recommend it. The location is in a really beautiful area of the island and as it was our first visit we were lucky to have landed there. A very relaxing place to stay.
