Downsview is a traditional style detatched farmhouse. It is located in the heart of the Island's beautiful countryside within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet it is only a 5 minute drive from local village shops, farm shops and pub/restaurants. This Victorian property was completely refurbished in 2007 to provide modern facilities, whilst retaining its period and charm and being designed for country living. It has under-floor heating mostly under flagstone floors. A particular feature of the home is the fantastic, large, light and airy farmhouse kitchen opening onto the garden, which is of a good size with lots of space for dining 'al-fresco' and for children to play in.

The spectacular rural beaches of Compton Bay are nearby and the property is ideally located for the Island's network of footpaths and bridlepaths; being close to the Tennyson Trail. The area is popular with walkers, horse riders and mountain-bikers who all enjoy the spectacular views from the downland walks and the trails through Brighstone Forest.

The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year. It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain. For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Island's towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.

Newport, Isle of Wight

Calbourne is a small village approximately situated just over five miles West of the Island's capital town of Newport. The village took its name from the stream that passes through it, the Caul Bourne. The stream used to power five mills and still powers one to this day. Calbourne Mill is now an Island attraction set in 35 acres and dating back to the Domesday Book. It is definitely worth a visit, as you can watch the milling, visit the museum, walk the Ancient Oak woodlands, hire a punt on the mill stream, play golf (putting) or croquet not to mention feeding the peacocks, doves, ducks and fish in the mill ponds. Once you have done all that you can take a well earnt rest in the licensed cafe or enjoy a nice clotted cream tea! Another attraction is Winkle Street, a picturesque row of cottages that overlook the village stream. The cottages often appear on photographs and postcards of the Isle of Wight. In addition the village has a post office, public house and a church that was established in 826.
