About the property

The Old Barn - a barn that sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms

The Old Barn is the largest of four beautifully restored barn conversions located within Moor Farm, set in idyllic countryside only half a mile away from the village of Godshill arguably one of the most picturesque villages on the Island. With its historic church, thatched cottages and tea rooms it enjoys a wealth of character and charm all of which are within walking distance. There really is something for all the family to explore including model village, museums, gift shops, pubs and restaurants. For couples and families wanting a more relaxing walking holiday there are many miles of public footpaths and countryside to explore on your door step. The resort town of Shanklin with its beaches, seaside attractions and thatched cottages is only a short drive away.

The Red Squirrel footpath/cycle trail runs from Cowes to Sandown, passes through the courtyard of Moors Farm taking in some stunning wildlife habitats from woodlands to wetlands. .

You may also spot visiting ducks in the farmyard pond, which has been recently created for enjoyment of guests.

You can also access a local footpath (GL27) close to the barn, leading to Godshill Village (approx 15 mins walk.)

Wonderful property !!

  • 5 of 5

The Old Barn is a wonderful property especially for a larger group . We stayed here for Christmas and to arrive to a wonderful lit fire and some welcoming goodies was a lovely touch . The Barn is very clean and well maintained with modern bathrooms and towels provided . There is a stable shop next door in case you needed anything . Logs were provided . We had the use of a Christmas tree which saved a panic to rush and find one . The area was great as a local pub was within walking distance as were many walks . We ate at the Taverners which was good . We didn't really have time to explore too far as we were there at Christmas however nearby are plenty of attractions . We should have booked the steam railway as it was a special santa addition but unfortunately fully booked . We would definitely recommend this property and wonderful find !!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Old Barn for almost 3 months, it was perfect for our extended stay - great walks right from the back door, close to Godshill village but also far enough away from the tourist scene! The Old Barn was warm, and had everything needed to self cater. A perfect stay!

Location

What the South Wight has to offer:

The South of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most exciting coastline from long stretches of beach with hidden fossils and exposed dinosaur footprints, to rugged cliff tops with exhilarating views and historical monuments and pretty villages steeped in history, the inspiration for artists and authors old and new.

You must visit

BlackGang Chine is a must for all the family with a fantastic variety of activities for all the family to spend a great day out. Themed areas like Frontierland where you can play Cowboys and Indians in a full sized Cowboy Town, and rides like Waterforce where you can choose the fast 'overflows', or the scary 'plug-hole' - you'll have to see it and experience it to believe it!

Attractions

Superbly situated beside the sparkling waters of Sandown Bay, the twin resorts of Sandown and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years. Along Culver Parade you'll find tennis, bowls, GoKarting, crazy golf, a pitch and putt course, the Tiger Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle Museum. At the southern end of town the Heights Health and Leisure Base has indoor swimming pools and further inland is a fine 18 hole golf course.

With its charming thatch-roofed cottages and winding main street lined with tearooms, Godshill is the quintessential English Village. Traveling South to Wroxall there's the Donkey Sanctuary and Appledurcombe House now offering Owl and Falconry displays. Visit Chale Green Deli and Coffee shop and on to the Southern most tip of the Island St Catherine's with its ancient Pepperpot. Ventnor Botanic Garden provides a lovely walk and then lunch at their very successful café.

Walking

There are coastal paths around the Island and this section features the Isle of Wight's famous chines. Whale Chine is the most spectacular in a series of Chines along this stretch of coastline. Devil's Chimney provides an exciting walk through enchanted woodland down to the beach; Chale Bay is stunning; Wealdon Beds which have yielded fossilized remains of dinosaurs. With features like St Catherine's Lighthouse many feel this section offers the best walking and views of the entire Isle of Wight.

Beach Life

Sandown and Shanklin on the south-east coast share a wide crescent of golden sand, with safe swimming, water sports and a range of bars, pubs and cafés. The southern stretch, below Shanklin Chine, is the quietest and most attractive.

Ventnor has a wonderful Mediterranean light and, like Sandown and Shanklin, an enviable sunshine record. Steephill Cove is its prettiest beach, a peaceful little bay with a good beach café. Reach it via the coastal footpath from the Botanic Gardens, or La Falaise car park in Ventnor.

Places to eat

Try the local seafood, in particular crab, lobster, haddock dishes. The vast majority of pubs are highly geared up for food and usually the portions are on the large side. Fresh crab in particular can be tasty from beachside cafe's and can also be purchased from the fisherman at seafood huts selling direct, two places spring to mind: Ventnor Fresh Crab Beach Hut and a fisherman's house at Steephill Cove next to the café'.
