Afton Thatch and Afton Thatch Lodge

England: South of England: Isle of Wight: Freshwater

4 Enjoy England Stars

Afton Thatch & Lodge are in a tranquil rural location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but still within walking distance to the small village of Old Freshwater

Afton Thatch is a large, detached thatched cottage located at the head of the River Yar, which extends from Yarmouth Harbour, one of England's most unspoilt seaside villages. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cottage has been restored to a very high standard. Tasteful and yet understated, this lovely cottage has been interior designed and features antiques, handmade curtains and upholstered furniture throughout. With oak beams, fireplaces and an eat-in kitchen, the cottage has an authentic style and atmosphere that is rare among rental properties. From the cottage one can walk to Afton and Tennyson Downs and Compton Bay, a beautiful National Trust beach is a short drive or bicycle ride away. The cottage sleeps 6 to 11 and has three large bedrooms (sleeping 2 or more) and two bathrooms. A second downstairs sitting room with a sofabed and attached cloakroom can be used as a fourth bedroom to accommodate a group of up to 11. Afton Thatch Lodge (sleeps 2-6) is a detached thatched cottage located within the grounds of Afton Thatch, a traditional thatched cottage built in 1697. This small cottage has been delightfully restored to a high standard with antiques and shaker style matchboarding. The Lodge offers accommodation for a couple or family with small children. A large master bedroom on the first floor has an ensuite double-ended roll top bath. Two “over and under” occasional day beds on the ground floor can sleep up to four more. A simple kitchen with iroko counters, gas hobs and a microwave/oven sits in the “L” formed by the sitting room and kitchen on the ground floor.
