The Experience

Buddle Place is on the southern-most tip of the Island with huge sea views. The walking here is fantastic, and your converted Victorian cow barn has a hall with heaps of space to store boots and things.

Open the French doors to the terrace for al fresco meals, sit out in the south facing garden with the sea peeping through the trees. Underfloor air source heating and wood-burner (logs supplied) keep everything toasty, the kitchen has all you need and there are music/TV gadgets for downtimes. You’ll find a loo upstairs by the two bedrooms, and the bathroom is back downstairs.

It’s an AONB and you’re on the coast path. Families will be happy with Blackgang Chine, trails and expeditions at Ventnor Botanic Garden and the trio of tip-top beaches (Ventnor, Sandown and Shanklin) all within easy reach.

This is a well designed property, honestly presented, which is impossible to fault. Jay is the perfect host, on the case but never intrusive. The location is perfect with easy access to delightful walks and the village is well served for essentials. We had the perfect short week here, as did the dog, and can recommend it unreservedly.

The Barn at Buddle Place was everything we could have wished for and more! So cosy and ample space for the two of us plus our miniature schnauzer who was very pleased to meet Ruby, the fellow ms belonging to Jay and Mark. It was spotlessly clean and tidy on our arrival with an extremely well-fitted out little kitchen, with every utensil/tool we could have needed. The views over the sea from upstairs were a joy to get up to every morning. We undertook several walks most days straight from the door, with the run down to St Catherine’s Lighthouse a particular favourite. Thank you!

Susan, Wallingford

We loved our stay at The Barn. It had everything we needed, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a lovely enclosed garden, brilliant for us and our dog. The sea was a ten minute walk away and there was a good pub just around the corner.The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and had left provisions of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits.

Pamela, Dudley

We absolutely loved The Barn at Buddle Place. They have done an amazing job on restoring it from a cowshed. It was perfect for our 2.5 year old son. The interiors and design of the rooms are very well done. We loved the location, a very pretty Village and near the sea. We will definitely be back and already have friends who are going to book.

The neighbourhood

Spectacular scenic walking area here with dramatic plunging cliffs, lush vegetation in a warm microclimate and smart marine villas. Join the coastal path, pop down to Castlehaven harbour for a dip (15-minute walk). Drive the five miles to atmospheric Steephill Cove for paddling and local crab and lobster. Blackgang Chine is three miles away, Ventnor five; Sandown and Shanklin beaches are 10 miles. Just a two-minute walk to the famous Buddle Inn – an old smugglers’ haunt dating from 1550, serving good food (Sunday roasts, locally reared beef, local bread and sausages, Isle of Wight tomato bruschetta, vegetarian options) and real ales.

Local points of interest from Jay Lowein

  • St Catherines Lighthouse is a few hundred yards away, close by is Castlehaven with its small fishing harbour, beach cafe & the opportunity for a swim from the slipway
  • Walk up to 'The Pepperpot' on St Catherines Down - Britain's only surviving medieval lighthouse. There are spectacular views from here to the mainland & all around the island. Extend your walk 2 miles further to the Hoy Monument.
  • Visit nearby Ventnor Botanical Gardens nestled in the Undercliff with its unique micro climate. Sub tropical plants, normally under glass, thrive outdoors here. Stop for a coffee or lunch at the Plantation Room cafe.
  • There are coastal paths within walking distance of the house, part of the island's 500 mile network. The National Trust own the farmland leading down to the lighthouse below & cliff paths take you west towards Freshwater Bay or east towards Ventnor.
  • Enjoy the beach at nearby Steephill Cove, only accessible on foot & have lunch there at the Crab Shack ( try Mandy's famous crab pasties ) In the summer the Boathouse restaurant is open & there are kayaks for hire to paddle around the cove.
  • Explore Ventnor 10 minutes drive away. There is an excellent swimming beach, independant shops, pubs & good restaurants. During August Ventnor has its own Fringe Festival, a week of events including music, theatre & film.

Jay and Mark live on site in the farmhouse so are on hand to welcome visitors and deal with any problems. They managed the conversions of The Barn and The Stable and they’re retired now so can focus on looking after their self-catering spaces. They’re friendly and helpful and know and love the area having lived here for many years.
