Description

This single-storey barn conversion is surrounded by meadows and countryside, yet lies just 5 miles from the beach and a short drive from Newport.

Located in the beautiful Bowcombe Valley these former stables adjacent to the owners’ own home have been converted to provide an extremely well-presented, single-storey holiday home. Flint Cottage can sleep up to 4 people and offers it guests stylish and comfortable accommodation which further benefits from allocated off road parking, private garden and patio area. Surrounded by countryside views, Flint Cottage really is the perfect retreat. The quaint village of Shorwell with its characterful thatched cottages, local shop and excellent family public house is close by. Whilst within a 10-minute drive in the other direction is the larger town of Newport, with its array of restaurants, shops and multiplex cinema, there is a bus stop just a short distance from the property where you can catch a bus in either direction.
The island has become a real hot spot for cycling and walking enthusiasts with a choice of challenging off road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks running along former railway lines. You can choose to take on the full round the island route, which is 66 miles long and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee, travel along the route at a more leisurely pace, and along the way you will find numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés, amongst the quaint villages and towns serving tasty local produce. Seashore and cliff walks showcasing stunning scenery can be found along the coastal paths and outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf.
There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages on this beautiful sunny island. The Needles landmark attraction is a must see and is a short distance away to the west, with its chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and gardens, or perhaps Blackgang Chine which is the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle or the world renowned sailing town of Cowes. Whatever you decide, one things for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer for everyone. Beach 5 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    A lovely, clean and well furnished cottage! We were made to feel most welcome by the owners and they were most helpful when needed.

    The hot water should have been on a timer using overnight electric. the double bed was THE most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in. The outside light stayed on for approx. 30 seconds, so constantly plunging you into darkness. The electric shower was not very powerful The shelf below the bathroom mirror, above the wash basin, was too close to the basin to be able to have a wash. We constantly banged our heads on the shelf.

    Far too small for 4, otherwise all fine. The owner next door could not have been more friendly and helpful. Not noisy though next to a road, wonderful thick walls.

    My mother and I received a very warm welcome from the owners of Flint cottage including a bottle of chilled wine in the fridge. We had a wonderful week in the very cosy single storey barn conversion surrounded by hills. Parking facilities were excellent as were the local road networks. Nothing is very far away on the Island. There are good pubs/ restaurants locally and some amazing scenery. The decor and cleanliness in the cottage were of a very high standard. The kitchen was well equipped. A mini dishwasher might be a useful addition. There was an iron and a hairdryer if needed. Although we normally choose a different cottage every year we will definitely return to Flint cottage.
