                                                                                                      The Granary is a cosy, warm cottage even in the worst weather, which makes it a good wintertime holiday home. The kitchen is well equipped (though one really good chef’s knife would have been appreciated); it was a pleasure to prepare meals there with the abundance of super local vegetables, meats and wines available at the excellent village shop. The owner is a great supporter of IOW producers and businesses, as evidenced by the thoughtful welcome basket, flowers, and even a local artisan’s Christmas card greeting me upon arrival—such a nice touch. The location is good for cyclists, and walkers who like either the coast or the downs—though be sure to bring a torch because if you are out late it’s impossible to negotiate your way “home” in the pitch blackness. (On the flip side, it’s a stargazer’s paradise and I wish I’d brought my tripod for some night shots.) The private car park is a bonus, but if you’re on foot, as I was, there is a reliable bus service to Newport and Freshwater. Why a less-than-five-star review? These are personal tastes: I was staying alone, to write, enticed mainly by the promised “views of the surrounding countryside”, which in fact the cottage lacks. Sitting to work, I had only a view of the stone wall across the road (not that stone walls in England aren’t pretty). Also, because of the cottage’s location on a sloping roadside, it is in fishbowl on both floors, which I don’t find very relaxing. It’s a quiet location but, even in December/January, there is a lot of foot and bicycle traffic. If you’re romantically inclined, be aware! Also, the beds are very squashy, which might be a consideration for some (I had to sleep on the sofa). I think the cottage is ideal for friends who want to walk or bicycle by day and hang out together in the evenings. It is robustly but tastefully furnished, with safe windows and an enclosed garden that must be pretty in the warmer seasons, so it would also be great for a family with a couple of young children.
