One-Off Feature

A former Shire horse farm on the Isle of Wight, this is a lovely barn conversion set in the hamlet of Chessell, right in the heart of the beautiful West Wight countryside.  Nestled at the foot of Brook Down, the Old Stables is just minutes from the walking and cycling paradise of the famous Tennyson Trail over the Downs, and a mile from some of the Island’s most beautiful beaches.  Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and in a Dark Skies area, guests can delight in viewing the millions of stars revealed on a clear night, as well as enjoying the stunning surroundings during the daytime!

General Info

The Old Stables sleeps seven guests in four bedrooms. Fresh flowers and a delicious home baked cake are ready to greet our guests on their arrival.  This home from home is furnished to a four-star standard, complete with beautiful Emma Bridgewater crockery in the large open plan, spacious Italian style kitchen.  For guests visiting in the winter months, there is a delightful wood burning stove with logs provided, perfect for warming up after a bracing walk over the Downs.  The cottage is wonderfully child friendly with a baby changing station, stair gates, cots, melamine crockery and a basket of toys to keep the little ones entertained.  

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The West Wight countryside is a perfect base for walking, cycling and sightseeing. Over half of the Isle of Wight is an area of outstanding natural beauty, including the immediate area surrounding Chessell, so the walking and cycling in this area is fabulous. You can walk/cycle all the way to the Needles along the Tennyson trail, taking in the stunning Freshwater Bay on the way. The Isle of Wight is home to many rare plants, animals and birds and is a bird watching haven. The lovely ancient harbour town of Yarmouth is just four miles away where you can watch the boats, explore arts and crafts shops and visit the castle. There are 13 award winning beaches on the Isle of Wight. The nearest to Chessell are Brook, and the more popular Compton Bay (both about 2 miles away). Compton is a beautiful sweeping sandy beach by the coast road where you can enjoy watching (or taking part in!) some exciting water sports.  Also, within easy reach, are the sheltered bays of Totland and Colwell, both very popular for families with small children, providing easy beach access, ice cream shops and eateries, and good swimming conditions.
