Blacksmiths Cottage is an 18th Century semi-detached stone cottage, backing onto fields and open countryside. Located in a very peaceful spot in the village of Thorley, yet also near to the picturesque town of Yarmouth with its ferry, harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants.

The cottage is ideally placed to visit some of the Island’s well known landmarks – The Needles, Alum Bay, and the beaches of West Wight, as well as to explore lesser known spots – Newtown Creek (NT), the river Yar, and the nearby villages and towns.

Sleeping 6 comfortably, in 3 spacious bedrooms. It has been refurbished to a very high standard, is stylishly furnished and equipped with everything you will need to help you enjoy your self catering holiday. The cottage has been fully redecorated prior to the 2011 season.

Free WiFi.

Compton Beach

Footpaths and bridle ways are close by, and the round-the-island cycle route passes the end of the driveway. The lovely beach at Compton is a few miles away, and the beaches at Colwell Bay, Totland and Freshwater Bay are also nearby.
