The property

A pretty, semi-detached cottage in the peaceful hamlet of Yafford, at the southern end of the Isle of Wight. This Yafford holiday cottage has been sympathetically converted from a charming, 18th century stone barn, set beside an attractive large pond, in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse, in a rural setting only a mile from the sea. This Yafford cottage offers original character, including stone walls, exposed beams and trusses, and wooden floors throughout. The area has a great choice of lovely walks, and the Round-the-Island cycle route is also close by. The beach at Atherfield is a mile away from this Yafford cottage, and the picturesque village of Brighstone is only 2 miles. Within a short drive is Blackgang Chine, whilst the beaches of Ventnor, Shanklin, Sandown and Compton are all easily accessible. A great Yafford cottage, and a super, rural holiday base. Note: This Yafford cottage can be booked with Ref. 3811 to accommodate up to 8.


Two bedrooms: 1 x eaves king-size double, 1 x eaves twin, additional single folding bed available on request. Bathroom with bath, basin & WC. Ground floor shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen with exposed stone walls and dining area. Sitting room with exposed stone walls.

Note: As the folding bed, travel cot and highchair are shared between both properties, these items are available on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your own bedding and linen for the folding bed and cot.
