Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Ventnor - MACKETTS FARM

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

A great family holiday base, this spacious detached house has a large enclosed garden, a hot tub and is in an ideal location for touring the island.. Located along a farm lane and directly opposite a public footpath with scenic strolls, this extremely spacious, detached, family holiday home offers light and airy accommodation. This is an ideal holiday base as it is so easy to get to all parts of the island from here, yet it still has a rural feel. Adjacent is the owners’ working farm, which was formerly a dairy. This substantial farmhouse has a very large living room as well as a separate kitchen/dining room. Both rooms have French doors out to the large enclosed lawned garden, an ideal spot in which to enjoy dining al fresco on warm summer evenings, or even a spot of breakfast! There is a good family pub/restaurant less than a mile away, as well as a regular bus service for those who prefer not to take the car out for the day. There are also two garden nurseries within walking distance. Many parts of the island are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with plenty of walks, cycle and nature trails where wildlife such as the famous red squirrels, various birds and other wildlife can be seen. Amazon World Zoo Park is nearby, one of the top family attractions in the Good Britain Guide, as well as Robin Hill Adventure Park. Discover The Garlic Farm and Arreton Barns, or slightly further, picturesque Godshill with an excellent model village, gift shops and tea rooms. Within a 5-minute drive, visit the popular tourist resort of Sandown with seaside entertainment, amusements, Tiger Island Zoo, putting, crazy golf, pier leisure centre and waterside dining in one of the many restaurants and cafes. Shanklin is also within easy reach, with the magical Shanklin Chine, a deep wooded gorge with waterfalls and streams, and quaint thatched roofed tea rooms, houses and shops. There is so much to do on this sunny island, plenty of NT homes and gardens including Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s former holiday abode, Carisbrooke Castle, Blackgang Chine, The Needles, Carisbrooke Mill, lavender farm, donkey sanctuary, glass making, dinosaur park and museums. Various outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed on the island, including excellent scenic walking along miles of Heritage coastline, sailing, fishing, hang gliding, surfing, golf, cycling, riding and crabbing.
