Lovely country stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely converted barn in a perfect rural location. Stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 children age 3 and 7. There is a lovely little garden which is fenced off so the children can play safely or look over the fence at the pigs. The decor is modern and clean. Best nights sleep I've had in ages. Watch out for the smoke alarm though, to say its loud is an understatement. The barn is located a few minutes drive from a lovely pub. Very ideal and peaceful, would definitely stay here again.

The stunning coastline of the Isle of Wight is only 5 mins drive from this rural idle.


To get to the Isle of Wight you need to take a ferry from the South of England, only 67 miles from London! Car ferries: Wightlink (Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth); Red Funnel (Southampton to East Cowes). Other forms of transport include Hovertravel, foot passengers only (Southsea to Ryde), Wightlink catarman, foot passengers only (Portsmouth to Ryde) and Red Jet (Southampton to Cowes). There is a small private airport at Bembridge and Sandown.


Shorwell is very close and is a pretty village with lovely village pub. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs on the Island and things for everyone to do!
