The
Experience

This converted granary and calf shed is set in a hollow across from Steve and Agnieszka’s house but feels totally secluded, with only the sound of birdsong and views of horses, fields and scattered farm buildings in the distance.

The large, bright and well-equipped kitchen/diner has plenty of room to both cook and hang out, and French doors lead out onto a courtyard with a swimming pool. Steve will leave you a welcome hamper with local produce, plus logs for the wood-burner. He’ll even curate a collection of vinyl records and books according to preference. There’s a huge window seat overlooking the garden in the sitting room and a projector screen for watching movies cinema-style.

Walking and cycling tracks from the house link to the coast and are great for wildlife and bird-spotting. The nearest pub is a 10-minute walk and serves food and a good pint. A longer walk or a seven-minute drive takes you to quirky Ventnor with its great beach, antique shops and interesting pubs and restaurants.

Reviews

A place to truly get away to the country - secluded, peaceful, comfortable. Relax and just read a book - sit by the pool or in the hammock on the garden terrace and soak in the views across the valley. Catch glimpses of the local wildlife from the garden - rabbits, bats, badgers, owls and much more, or ramble further afield through local woods and fields. Great helpful, knowledgeable hosts.

Our family of 4 had a wonderful holiday at The Granary and can’t wait to go back!

This is a quality property, well managed by the owners who live next door. The Granary has been carefully and stylishly renovated to a very high standard, with loads of character and individual touches that make it feel a special and unique place to stay. Spacious and light, well equipped, all mod cons, comfy beds, absolutely gorgeous - and private - outside space with a terraced garden, patio and pool, all set in the most perfect location. An absolute gem – such a relaxing place to be on holiday.

Location

The neighbourhood

The immediate area surrounding The Granary is soft, undulating countryside teeming with wildlife and nature trails. There's a lovely walk to Ventnor over the downs that takes around an hour, and Steve recommends Stripped for gourmet burgers, including vegan options, and the Spyglass Inn, a famous pub with glorious views over the bay. The Smoking Lobster is a seafood restaurant with a good reputation and the Volunteer is a tiny old pub full of character.

Local points of interest from Steve

  • You can turn your time here into a rejuvenating (or invigorating) retreat by booking yoga sessions and a massage or two, maybe even a facial, as you check out from our website.
  • Manor Bottom is a haven for wildlife. Whilst here you will probably see badgers, owls, bats, and many kinds of birds from Sparrowhawks to wrens, from woodpeckers to song thrushes.
  • Many great rides and walks start at The Granary. You can cycle the red squirrel train from almost the from door, join the round Island route and head off all the way to the Needles, or walk up to the downs to see the exquisite sunsets.
  • The Island has so many wonderful beaches, from the foodie cove at Steephill, the deserted sands of Atherfield, or the surfer beach at Compton Bay. Whatever your personality, there is a beach for you!
  • The Island had many great festivals, from the indie Ventnor Fringe, to the global Isle of Wight Festival. Check out more on our website.
  • There are many great food and drink producers on The Island - we have a gin distillery, two vineyards, great bread and cheese makers and well as producing delicious fruits and veg such as garlic, asparagus, tomatoes, better than on the mainland

Introducing

Steve

Steve and Agnieszka live just across the bridleway with their two young children and moved here from London as they wanted the kids to grow up in the countryside. Steve used to work for a publisher and now freelances, and Agnieszka is a business psychologist and a career coach who works remotely and travels into London once a week. They are always on hand to help, whether for practicalities or recommendations – ask about yoga, kickboxing in their studio or even a career coaching session.
