The Old Stable description

In a peaceful setting, with scenic walks from the door, this charming, detached, 17th-century, character holiday cottage is conveniently located within the quaint village of Shorwell, only a 2-minute walk from the historic 14th century church, shop and pub. This period home is suitable for families and dog-lovers, and offers comfortable accommodation with features such as beams, tiled floors and feature fire surrounds. The large living room, on the first floor, enjoys an open fire set within an inglenook and wooden flooring with rugs. Leading from the farmhouse-style kitchen is a large utility room which is ideal for drying, as a boot store or for dogs to sleep in, and has a stable door leading to the garden. On two levels, the lawned garden is accessed by steep steps or a sloping path, which surrounds the garden for access, and has a table and bench seating for dining al fresco. This is a great place for spotting various wildlife such as red squirrels and many birds such as buzzards. The Isle of Wight has a wealth of footpaths and bridleways. Discover an amazing variety of scenery and many award-winning beaches, many of them with golden sands, as well as coves and bays to explore. Enjoy a cream tea at one of the various tea rooms located in historic villages such as Brighstone, which is less than a 15-minute drive, or Godshill and Olde Shanklin.
