At one end is a cosy lounge area with ample soft seating for all guests, a cosy rug, an open fire and TV/DVD. In the centre of this room is a large farmhouse table for enjoying group meals together.

Here you will find a range oven with gas hob and electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The king-size and double bedrooms benefit from en-suite shower rooms and TVs, while the small single sits adjacent to a family bathroom with shower over the bath and a WC. A further delightful double bedroom with additional single bed can be accessed via a quirky spiral staircase from the lounge area and boasts fantastic rural views.

The cottage is comfortable and very clean. The kitchen is equipped with all that you would need to make a meal or bake a cake. The beds are comfortable and 2 of them look into the garden with doors opening out to the garden lovely I should imagine in the summer. We enjoyed using the pool table and we used this everyday.

The cottage had everything you could want for a week away. It was a shame the upstairs bedroom has so far to go to the bathroom and was open to the main room. But I guess thats what you have to accept in a barn conversion. Lovely welcome pack and flowers too. Thank you owners x

We had a fabulous time in a very well equipped barn. The main room was large enough to cope with all the twins bits and pieces and leave room for the rest of us! Close to a good eating pub and short walk to beach

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Stanwell Barn. The pictures do not do the property justice, such a fantastic place. The children throughly enjoyed the garden and the games that were at the property. The adults loved the pool table! Lots of equipment in the kitchen for meals in or alternatively we would recommend The Propeller Inn. The foRead moreod was delicious and good size portions. The barn is in a fantastic location, very peaceful and a 5 minute drive to Sandown beach. Hide

Nice cottage in a good location.

An amazing cottage in a lovely area of the island. We went for my mum's 60th birthday, so having the pub a 4 min walk away and the beach 10 mins away was perfect. The cottage was better than we expected with all the little touches, such as a spice rack and fully stocked kitchen. We plan to go back!

Quite simply the best place we have stayed in. It was high spec high quality throughout the property, and very well presented. All bedrooms were large with loads of storage space. Lovely garden to the front which caught the end of day sun perfectly. 10 minute stroll to beach and pubs. Perfect.

Reviewed by Merion, 19th April 2019

We had a really lovely holiday. Its a well equipped kitchen, spacious comfortable sitting/dining room and we all enjoyed the snooker. Lovely walks from the front door and a short drive to a surprisingly good range of shops in Bembridge (short high street which includes a small but high end farm shop to a Co-op plus a bakery, butcher and fabulous fiRead moreshmonger). The owners were very supportive when a member of our party was unwell. Thank you! Hide

Fabulous cottage, bigger in real life than it looked in the pictures. We had family staying at the nearby holiday park but the barn was great for us all to get together in the evenings as the table is so huge! And close enough for them to walk back after. The pool and billiards were great fun too.

Very comfortable and extremely spacious barn conversion. Interesting and beautiful beaches with rock pools within walking distance or a short drive away. The dog liked it too!
