Description from owner
The Mill House is a beautiful detached Georgian farmhouse situated in a quiet country lane. It has spectacular views across fields to the downs and is a ten-minute walk from the sea at Brighstone Bay. Across the lane is a pleasant ten-minute walk beside the stream, which leads to the picturesque village of Brighstone with its village shops, family friendly pub, gift shop, library, children’s play park and National Trust Museum. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is a marvellous walking and cycling area and footpaths can be followed from The Mill House to join coastal and inland paths leading to nearby beaches, the Tennyson Trail and the Needles. The sandy bays of Compton, Totland and Colwell are a short drive away as are the small towns of Freshwater and Yarmouth offering a choice of restaurants and shops. Children of all ages are welcome, as are well behaved pets (by arrangement).
The Mill House has been renovated to a very high standard with many original features retained and has been awarded the VisitEngland five star Gold award since 2009.

“We couldn't have found a better property on the island”
We were expecting a welcome pack based on the reviews we read before our arrival but it exceeded our expectations - the hot cross buns were great and the selection of Easter chocolate was a lovely surprise. We felt very much at home straight away. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bedrooms are all a very good size with comfortable beds. The bathrooms upstairs are very large and for us the main shower was the one we all wanted to use - excellent water pressure and loads of hot water. Outside the house the garden is large and orchard had masses of room for parking. It was a great place to run the dogs in the morning. The local shop in the centre of Brighstone is a gem. Great selection of fresh veg and other foods and very friendly staff that helped us locate the best walking in the area. The downs are spectacular once you reach the top of the hill. Cycle rides and runs are easy to find on the doorstep. It was a perfect location to celebrate our sons 21st although he did suggest that the piano could do with tuning!
A beautiful house in a peaceful setting with great countryside views. The house is immaculate well equipped and presented and the beds so comfortable.This is my fourth visit to the Mill House and I hope not my last.
“Brilliant House, Perfect for our weekend away!”
The Mill House was a brilliant house to stay in with 9 adults! The house was warm and clean when we arrived and the added touches of breakfast in the fridge was much appreciated on Saturday morning. I would highly recommend this house if you are looking for a place to rent on the isle of wight. The Three Bishops pub in the village is good for food and the local village shop is a little treasure trove!
“Fantastic Location for our family Christmas”
Our extended family and 2 dogs spent a wonderful week over Christmas at The Mill House and nobody wanted to leave! The layout of the house is excellent and lends itself perfectly to large groups, with a great lounge with an open fire and a snug/games room to keep the teenagers (& big kids!) in the party duly occupied. The location is great too, within walking distance of a small beach, where some of the braver members of our party took a Christmas Day dip! Within easy reach of local shops too. As well as some great blustery walks along the beach or up to see the Needles, we all spent a lot of time at the house cooking in the superbly equipped kitchen, eating together (there was a lot of eating) and playing games together - cannot recommend the Mill House highly enough as a place to spend quality family time. 10/10 from us all. Thank you - Nikki & Family, Newbury, Berkshire
We had such a great time for a New Year's Eve break at The Mill House. The house is gorgeous - beautifully decorated, well equipped, spacious and warm. There was a nice welcome pack of goodies on arrival and no issues with just having to leave the house in a tidy condition at the end. Two good walks along the coast and a trip to The Needles. Well recommended.
“Family holiday to celebrate an 80th birthday”
The Mill House is a beautiful property in a lovely setting, in easy reach of walks on the downs, local shops via a pretty footpath, a short drive to the beach, and set in spacious gardens. The rooms are all a good size and very well furnished. The dishwasher, washing machine and drier are all top of the range Miele and work superbly. There is plenty of china and cutlery, and we appreciated the large set of Denby. Two sitting rooms, one having the tv, plus a dining room, meant that our party of twelve were never crowded. There is plenty of room for parking as many cars/trailers as one could need. We ranged from 4 - 80 in ages and the house was perfect for everyone. The downstairs bedroom with shower was ideal for the disabled member of the family. The toys, games and books were much appreciated by the 4-8 year-olds. This is an exceptional house for a memorable holiday, and all our party would strongly recommend it.
“Beautiful location, property provides all amenities you could possibly want”
I have stayed several times at the Mill House and it never disappoints. Last weekend 8 of us (4 couples) had a fabulous time celebrating our friends 50th. The Mill house is in a stunning location, surrounded by countryside, yet only a few minutes car ride from the various attractions the IOW has to offer in particular the Needles. The property is cleaned and looked after to a very high standard but most importantly it also feels very homely and welcoming. On a previous visit there were a party of 14 of us including adults and children, so the Mill House really does cater for different needs and lengths of stay and is an ideal base to explore the stunning Isle of Wight & somewhere I would not hesitate to recommend. Will be going again soon
“Lovely spacious house”
Had a very nice stay in the Mill house. We all found it relaxing with lots of children. Location of the house was good for travelling around Isle of Wight. I would recommend the rental.
“A fantastic house, great location, with style as well as homely touches”
We were a large group with ages ranging from 9 to early 80's plus a dog. The house had ample parking, comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen,cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and the two sitting rooms worked well allowing the adults and children to have time out from each other. Baked potatoes cooked in the Aga were so good we did the same again the next day. We stayed for 5 days and found more than enough to do. We would love to return one day.
“An absolute gem”
We had a wonderful week at Mill House and everybody in our group thought the house was marvellous. It has a real 'family home' feel to it with large bedrooms and living rooms. Plenty of space all round and ideal for a large group or multi-generation extended family (as ours was). Lots of crockery and cutlery and other kitchen utensils makes living very easy (trouble is remembering wher everything goes!).. A lovely large garden ideal for toddlers (and older children) to play freely and safely. On the quieter side of the island but nowhere takes very long to get to. The coastline nearby is very picturesque and the beaches there are almost empty, away from the main island resorts.Close to a lovely village with good pub, bistro and very well stocked village shop (good fresh fruit/veg and bread etc). All very relaxing. We had wonderful weather all week, which always helps of course! Highly recommended.
