A quirky bolthole hidden in the walled garden of a large house with two wings: bedrooms and bathrooms are in a converted 1920s engineer’s workshop, featuring original brick walls and quarry tiled floors. Above you the loft has been turned into a play space for children with a sleeping area.
A short, glassed-in corridor brings you to the newly-built second wing. This living area duplicates the lines of the workshop, with space to eat, drink and spread out. You’re free to roam the garden and pick seasonal veg and salads; on warm evenings you can barbecue on the patio.
Exploring the island is easy. Osborne House is within walking distance and a ten-minute stroll will take you to a riverside pub – the Folly. Pack up a picnic and all your beach gear for a day out at Ryde with its miles and miles of sand.
