Only forty-six spots across the country have achieved the ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ label, and the Isle of Wight plays host to one of them. As your home is set within this highly prized region, the landscapes around you are incredible. Five minutes on foot from Brook’s rugged coastal path and beach, fill your lungs with fresh air from the sea and relax in your country retreat. In a former farmhouse, complete with a rustic stone exterior and original timber beams inside, this apartment mixes traditional elements with modern flair and well-thought-out facilities. Families will love the playground – with swings and a trampoline – as well as the board game collection for rainy days. While the kids keep busy, you can relax in the vast lounge on a plush sofa, with a warm Earl Grey in hand. And with French doors in the master bedroom, you can open up the curtains to the lush lawn on a sunny morning, or make the most of stargazing opportunities at night. Feel free to pour a tumbler of whisky after the kids have gone to bed.
Home truths: *The home is set on the ground floor, so you don't have to worry about climbing stairs
*Your host kindly provides all the barbecue equipment and utensils you'll need
*Furry friends are welcome, but well-behaved pets are preferred
*There's a parking space in the drive (we recommend bringing a car to explore the rural area)
*Your home is one of a few in the farmhouse building – it's not a detached cottage, but more like an apartment, and you'll share the garden with other guests
*If you're bringing the whole family, your host can provide a cot, high chair, children's tableware, books and toys, plus babysitter recommendations
*At full capacity, one guest will sleep on a pull-out single bed and one on a sofa bed in the lounge
