Charming Grade II listed Isle of Wight holiday cottage beside quiet lane on edge of pretty village of Brighstone, 1/2 mile from sea
2 The Granary originally formed part of Brighstone Mill and dates back to 1700. Converted in 1990, the living accommodation is on the first floor where there is a kitchen and open plan living/dining area with views of the surrounding countryside. The ground floor has two bedrooms (one king size and one twin) and a bathroom. The cottage is double-glazed and with gas central heating is ideal for holidays and short breaks all year round. The garden is enclosed, private and a real sun trap – we love having breakfast on the patio!
With its edge of village location this cottage is ideal for star gazing and even the Milky Way is visible on a clear night. With no street lights to disrupt your viewing just bring your telescope!
Guests staying for 4 nights or more are welcomed with a hamper containing local island produce. A typical hamper will include IOW milk, cheese, apple juice, cake, eggs, tomato ketchup, muesli, sun-dried tomatoes – all from the Brighstone Village Shop (items can be swapped on request) plus butter, cookies from Isle of Wight Biscuit Company and Country Market jam. Fairtade coffee, tea & sugar and the local newspaper are also provided in the cottage. The Brighstone Village Shop is well stocked and you should be able to buy most items that you will need during your stay.
Brighstone is one of the most popular and attractive villages on the Isle of Wight. It is situated on the south west coast, around half a mile from the sea. Brighstone has everything that you would hope for in a village – a church, pub, doctor’s surgery, newsagent, grocery shop (including Post Office), card & gift shop and even a hairdresser! The Brighstone Forest is 2 miles away, and you will find some spectacular views around the island high up on the Downs.
