Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Priory Barn is a detached property perfect for families. It boasts a spacious, modern, open plan living space overlooking the delightful surrounding grounds of the owner’s own residence, Priory Cottage, which is a period thatched stone cottage, originally owned by Lord Tennyson and features in the Tennyson Trail. It displays beautiful decorative tiles above its windows, and doors that were made by Lord Tennyson himself when he chose the property to house his beloved nanny. Priory Cottage has other famous connections, since Tennyson’s good friend G.F. Watts lived next door, and Montgomery’s map-maker is also known to have lived in the cottage.
This holiday cottage, Priory Barn, is dog friendly and is situated in the scenic village of Totland, where most of the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust, and the Tennyson Monument and Headon Warren (with its breathtaking views of The Needles) are nearby.
Fantastic Totland Bay is just over a mile away, where you can find a restaurant, pub and café to try the locally sourced seafood, experience some of the finest sunsets or enjoy a stroll along to neighbouring Colwell Bay. There are spectacular views across the Solent to mainland England, with clear, calm waters and gently sloping sand and shingle, making it an ideal beach for swimming. For surfers and kite surfing enthusiasts, Compton Bay is nearby on the south coast and is just a short drive away.
One of the Isle of Wight’s best kept secrets, Compton, offers a 2-mile stretch of contrasting dark and golden sands, with rolling seas, and a stunning backdrop of multi-coloured sandstone cliffs. It’s also a great place to go fossil hunting, and you can book tours on the beach to see dinosaur footprintsthat are exposed at low tide. The island has become a hot spot for cycling enthusiasts, with a choice of routes suitable for all.
If you are bringing your own bikes, there is secure storage facility on site.
Whether you want to explore or just unwind, this fantastic property offers everything you need for the perfect holiday. There are numerous attractions for all ages. The Needles landmark attraction is a must see, and is just a short distance away, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, or Blackgang Chine which is the oldest themed attraction in the UK? Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle or the world renowned sailing town of Cowes are other places to visit. Whatever you decide to do, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile
