Self-catering Cottage in Whitwell

Sleeps 2 // 1 King-size Bedroom // Ensuite // No Dogs or Children // WiFi // Countryside Views

One of the effects of the pandemic is that we have made certain changes to the usual ways in which we welcome our guests. We hope that these will help you to feel safe and comfortable so that you can enjoy every minute of your holiday.

In normal times, our cleaning regime ensures the highest standards, but we now have to carry out extra sanitising and disinfection procedures. To give us plenty of time for this, we have changed our arrival and departure times slightly, to 15:00 and 09:30.

All bedding, duvets, blankets, pillows and cushions will be rotated for every changeover so that there will be a week for everything to be washed and aired ready for the next guests. However, if you would prefer to bring your own linen/pillows etc., please do.

Perhaps you would let us know in advance if this is the case. It would be greatly appreciated if you would strip the bed before you leave, and place linen plus towels etc., in the black bags that we will provide for the purpose.

Our home is adjacent to Little Granville, and we are always available, whether by email, phone or text, or in person, to help you with any concerns that you might have during your stay.

Little Granville enjoys views across the beautiful countryside and is a wonderful walking and cycling area with footpaths from close to the cottage. Within a 10 minute drive of the sandy beaches of Shanklin & Ventnor, this renovated cottage has been furnished and equipped to a high standard.

Little Granville is situated within the grounds of Ford Farm House. It enjoys views across the beautiful countryside and is within a 10-minute drive of the sandy beaches of Shanklin, Steephill Cove and Ventnor. It is a wonderful walking and cycling area with footpaths and bridleways leading from close to the cottage to nearby downs and there is a renowned walk which follows the course of the nearby River Yar from its source at Niton to the sea at Bembridge via Godshill and Alverstone. The nearby village of Whitwell has the White Horse Inn, for meals, and within a few minutes drive, there is also the village of Niton, where there is an excellent general store, pub, pharmacy and a beautiful church. The thatched village of Godshill lies about two miles north and has two public houses and a restaurant.

Little Granville has been renovated to provide very attractive and comfortable accommodation for two people in one bedroom. It has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard and is centrally heated and double glazed. There is a delightful open plan living area with a fitted kitchen equipped with an electric cooker and gas hob, dishwasher and refrigerator with icebox; a pleasant dining area; a lovely sitting room area with comfortable armchairs, and a flat-screen television/DVD/Freeview. Patio doors open from here on to a pretty decked area with a table and chairs so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine whilst enjoying the views. There is a separate twin bedroom with a super king-size bed, which is very well equipped with fitted wardrobes and a lovely en-suite shower room with a large walk-in shower, basin and w.c. heating, electricity and water which are provided without extra charge. A freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer are also available for visitors’ use.

Please note that due to being in the countryside, our WiFi is currently not on a fibre broadband network so speeds may not be as fast as you are used to.

However, in 2021 we invested in a 4G router meaning you should receive a more than adequate connection.

Please bear this in mind when you are booking to avoid disappointment.
