The Dairyman’s Cottage
Sitting among several carefully renovated barns, the Dairyman’s Cottage is a beautiful Isle of Wight retreat.
The Dairyman’s Cottage has four bedrooms: three doubles en suite (can be turned into twins) and a twin room. There is also disabled access and a wet room. Downstairs there is an open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room. Outside there is a patio with BBQ, large garden and parking.
Big enough to sleep the largest of families but equally cosy and welcoming; Tapnell Manor has recently undergone a major refurbishment bringing the interior into the 21st century while maintaining the rustic appeal of an old farmhouse.
Inside the house there are plenty of rooms for guests to spread out: a games room for the more active, and plenty of open fires for the more relaxed. The farmhouse has 10 bedrooms: 6 doubles, 1 triple, 1 twin, 1 family room with a double and twin and 1 nursery with cot and put up single. There is also 4 sofa beds- one in the lounge, 1 in a double room, 1 on a second floor landing and 1 in a downstairs walkway next to the wet room.
Other features include a welcoming kitchen with an Aga and a relaxed eating area, a conservatory with breathtaking views and a beautiful beamed dining room. Outside, in the enchanting garden there’s room to roam, with ponds, ornaments and a wide assortment of flora and fauna to entertain the greenest of fingers!

Undergoing major refurbishment, due to open Spring 2020.
The newly extended property will have 6 bedrooms (2 double, 3 king and 1 superking/twin) and 5 bathrooms, as well as a spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast dining room perfect for entertaining, and a large living area with log burner. Two of the bedrooms will be on the ground floor of the property, one providing full wheelchair access with a wet room and the other suitable for those that require ground floor access.
On the outskirts of the farm, and accessed from the main road, this property provides plenty of space for groups of up to 12, both inside and out. Boasting a large garden and generous BBQ patio area, there are lots of spots to admire the countryside views and watch the sun go down. The cottage has free wi fi and private parking for 4 cars.
