The property

Found in the peaceful rural hamlet of Yafford on the southern end of the Isle of Wight is this attractive, semi-detached 18th century stone barn conversion. Sympathetically converted, this Yafford cottage retains much original character, with stone walls, exposed beams, and wooden floors throughout. Quietly situated in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse only a mile from the sea at Atherfield, 2 miles from the picturesque village of Brighstone, this Yafford cottage is close to great walks, as well as the Round-the-Island cycle route. All the attractions of Blackgang Chine are a short drive from this Yafford cottage, and the superb beaches of Ventnor, Shanklin, Sandown and Compton are all easily accessible. This Yafford cottage makes a great base, any time of the year. Note: This Yafford cottage can be booked with Ref. 3812 to accommodate up to 8.

    • “A welcome escape from the Olympic madness.”

    • “Living so near the olympic stadium we'd planned for months to get away from the crowds, road closures and hype. This getaway was perfect. A lovely spot, very quiet and isolated, near the sea and clifftop walks. And some very good eating places nearby. A plain but comfortable cottage, perfect for 2 people or a small family. An extra is the little sunny garden at the back. The owner, who is on site, is friendly, welcoming and helpful but also very discreet. We would definitely go there again.”

Situated at the southern end of the Isle of Wight, near Brighstone Bay, and 2 miles from the picturesque village of Brighstone, the hamlet of Yafford, well known for its 18th century watermill, can be found in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, abounding in wildlife. Yafford is an ideal base for birdwatchers and walkers, while cyclists are well catered for, as Yafford is on the 'Round-The-Island’ Cycle Route. The beach at Atherfield is just a mile away, and within a short drive are the attractions at Blackgang Chine, and the lovely beaches of Ventnor, making this a great ‘year round’ holiday base.
