No smoking.\nThis quaint holiday home as its name suggests was the former blacksmiths shop which resides beside the village green. The green is a lovely place to sit relax take a breath and admire the beautiful surroundings of the unspoilt village of Shorwell pronounced ’shorrel’ by many resident islander’s which was named after the local spring - The Shor Well. This was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite places to visit when she was on the island holidaying at her residence Osborne House. The village is centred around its historic church St Peters which dates back to the 12th century. \n\nThe surrounding parish is also home to a trio of impressive manor houses - Northcourt Westcourt and Wolverton Manor. Today the village stands in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is at the centre of a network of footpaths bridleways and cycle routes to explore and enjoy. The routes are scattered with lovely thatched cottages and the village also has an 18th-century country pub and a small local shop and post office.\n\nThere are plenty of activities to keep you busy on the island including walking cycling and swimming at any of the glorious beaches are plentiful. You can even try your hand at paragliding if you are feeling adventurous There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages including The Needles with its amusement park boat rides lighthouse and famous chairlift down to the coloured sands of Alum Bay. Blackgang Chine the oldest themed attraction in the UK Ventnor Botanical Gardens Tapnell Farm Park and Carisbrooke Castle are all worth a visit. Alternatively why not visit Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence Osborne House and its gardens or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes?

    This is the second time I have stayed here. First time was 5 years ago. Lovely place to stay but kitchen, bathroom and en suite toilet all need updating. The Sun Room is forgotten about when it comes to cleaning so we did that ourselves and there are lots of needless dust gatherers dotted about the place but with that said we still had a lovely 2 weeks holiday. It was cleaner than the first time we stayed but things are still forgotten I.e the water pipes in the bathroom and skirting also under the beds.( thick dust and cobwebs).

    Lovely cottage in a great location, and plenty of room for the five of us. The furnishings and kitchen are a little tired, but since we intended to be out most of the time (and actually were) this wasn't important. Very nice conservatory which made a natural 'quiet room' for reading & relaxing. Shorwell is a good place to base yourself for exploring south & west Wight, and is worthy of a visit in itself, together with the excellent Crown pub within a short walk. Would very happily stay again.

    out of 10

    Good location but cottage was generally not up to the standard of other similarly priced accommodation. Felt on the surface the accommodation looked tidy but there were too many cobwebs lurking and the shower was positively below standard . The wine and milk was a nice gesture and the owner did visit to enquire whether everything was okay but we did not feel it was appropriate to point out the deficiencies.

    Excellent will definitely be booking this cottage again

    out of 10

    Owner very welcoming with flowers, wine and milk. Great location. Cottage is a little dated but we were grateful of being able to have our dogs with us.



    out of 10

    Really pleasant accommodation, had all that was needed for a self catering break. Flowers in the sun room were fab, lovely smell. Nearby pub is great for a really good meal. Could use a stair gate between lounge and kitchen if you have a toddler like us. Otherwise using the oven is not safe, as easily accessed by a wandering tot.



    out of 10

    We had a lovely weekend the village is lovely and the local pub the crown in 10 out of 10. The cottage was comfortable a little dated but we really enjoyed our stay as did our two dogs. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back in the summertime.



    out of 10

    Felt at home immediately. Very comfortable for our family of 5 and 2 dogs. The only downfall was the bed was too firm for us but that was a personal preference. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
