Full descriptionProperties do not come any more quintessentially English that this...!! Church Hill Cottage is a pretty, detached three bedroom Grade II listed cottage, located in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty in one of the most picturesque, idyllic, and renowned corners of the Isle of Wight. The cottage is of 16th century origin and forms part of the original group of thatched cottages adjacent to the well-known Godshill church. It has been fully refurbished to a high standard and benefits from a secluded gravel/lawned rear garden with seating area and outstanding and far-reaching countryside views. A haven of tranquillity all year round to watch the changing seasons and abundance of natural wild-life, and fauna, or to just watch the sunset!
Please note that the landlords are able to offer the cottage on a furnished/part-furnished or unfurnished basis, by prior negotiation.
Walking in to this charming property you immediately feel part of the property's rich past, steeped in history, and retaining so many original period features, but complemented by a modern kitchen and bathroom so as to ensure you are still able to enjoy comfortable modern day living with life's little essentials and home comforts. This delightful and exquisite cottage is the perfect and ultimate retreat for anyone looking for a peaceful and quiet rural or village lifestyle. The hidden gem of Godshill village is arguably the prettiest village on the island, yet only ten minutes from Newport town centre.
The accommodation comprises:
Entrance hall with exposed brick and stone wall, flagstone floor leading to beamed kitchen/breakfast room - fully fitted with beech units, gas cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and microwave. Stable door to garden.
Utility room with both washing machine and tumble dryer

Three bedrooms with sloping ceilings and arranged as follows: - double bedded room complete with hand-basin which looks onto local church, with additional single bed; 1 twin-bedded room with magnificent views to the Worsley Obelisk on Stenbury Down; 1 twin-bedded room (walk through) but part-curtained for privacy.
Upstairs shower-room with shower, bidet, basin and toilet
Lawned and gravelled rear garden with breath-taking and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Barbecue and seating area. Allocated Parking. Please note that there is pedestrian only access to the rear of the cottage.
The Isle of Wight caters for all interests and nowhere is more than a half hour drive from Godshill. The village of Godshill, with its thatched tea rooms, eateries and model village is a short stroll away, but the cottage itself has beautiful views over the local countryside. Riding is available nearby and the surrounding countryside has an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways for both walking, mountain biking or horse riding; not to mention the numerous beaches, attractive coastline and the wealth of historical and geographical attractions.
Godshill has a small post office and village shop whilst supermarket shopping is available at Sainsbury's and Morrisons which are both located within five miles. Meals can be taken in the village itself at either The Taverners, The Essex Restaurant or The Griffin Pub (which is particularly child-friendly) and there is also The Chequers within a couple of miles, which has won many awards for its facilities for children - as well as its excellent beer and food!
This is a rare opportunity to rent a stunning and picturesque Grade II listed cottage in one of the most idyllic and famous locations on the Isle of Wight!
