This idyllic cottage housed on a working farm peacefully beckons many a guest seeking isolation and time away from the daily nine to five. Nestled deep in the heart of the Isle of Wight countryside, you could feel a million miles from anywhere here, but hop in your car and you’ll soon realise you’re not quite so off the beaten track as you first thought. The picturesque village of Godshill with bustling cafes, shops, and cosy pubs is just a two-minute drive away (or ten minutes on foot). And with direct access to plenty of public footpaths and tracks from the cottage, you can dive straight into the natural beauty of the island. But you may find you have all the charm and entertainment back on the farm. There are resident pigs and chickens (with fresh eggs aplenty, we hear), a charming duck pond, and red squirrels to feed (who’ll be dutifully waiting for their seeds, which the cottage provides). When the sun shines, take things outside into your private garden to soak in the hot tub as you fire up the barbecue and fire pit and prepare for an evening of stargazing. In winter months, come together around the wood-burning stove for cosy nights in and atmospheric mealtimes with loved ones.
