This wonderful property occupies a delightful location set amidst the beautiful countryside of the coastal area of south west wight. This is ‘An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. The quiet and unspoilt beaches of Brighstone and Brook are within a 5 minute drive. The main village of Brighstone is set a little inland and is a very picturesque spot with thatched cottages, a public house plus cafe/restaurant, good general stores, post office and small museum. Much of this beautiful coastal region is protected by the National Trust. It is a wonderful walking area with downland and woodland walks and a coastal path with dramatic and panoramic views. There are a variety of small quiet sandy bays nearby.

Yafford Mill Barn has been architecturally designed to provide lovely light and spacious accommodation to the highest standards for 6 people with three lovely bedrooms and three well equipped Travertine tiled bath/shower rooms. The accommodation is all on one level and has sloping entrances, wide doorways and no problems with steps. There are oak and slate floors throughout, with underfloor heating. The main living area has a wonderful Scandinavian feel, achieved through the use of vaulted ceilings, wood panelling oplus an almost complete wall of glass with two sets of French doors opening onto a extensive patio area. There is a stylish wood burning stove, comfortable sofas and chairs, 42" Smart TV, Blu-Ray player, SKY HD and WiFi available throughout the property.

There is a lovely dining area overlooking the garden; a beautiful fitted kitchen area which is exceptionally well equipped with a ceramic hob, built in electric oven and microwave, refrigerator, freezer and washer dryer. The surfaces of the kitchen are at two levels so that visitors can prepare food whether standing or sitting. The bedrooms are all attractively furnished – one ‘king size’ double room with an en-suite shower room, basin and w.c.; one lovely twin bedroom, and a delightful second double bedroom with French doors opening into the garden. (A ‘bed in a bag’ mattress can be provided to enable two children to sleep separately).There is a family bathroom with a bath, built in shower, basin and w.c. plus a separate spacious wet room with an open shower area, basin and w.c. A Baby Bjorn travel cot and wooden high chair. Heating and electricity without extra charge. Yafford Mill Barn operates a no smoking policy.

Yafford Mill Barn has its own lovely spacious garden with patio and lawn, hardwood garden furniture and Weber gas fired barbeque. The rear garden is fully enclosed and secure with a pretty stream flowing just beyond the fence along one side of the garden. Three cars can be parked in the drive immediately to the rear of the barn. Access is via a gravel farm lane. (Due to the proximity of lakes and the stream children do need to be very closely supervised whilst at the property).

We had a great week in this very comfortable and well-maintained house. The situation is lovely, with short walks from the door to the downs and the sea, and the house is a nice place just to lounge in. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Peace and seclusion, beautifully appointed light, bright property, excellent for walkers, short drive to coast. Brighstone's small museum and excellent general stores close. In good weather the south-west facing terrace is a suntrap hard to leave. The welcome hamper was the best we'd ever experienced in a rental property. Overall Rating: 5 Stars
