Quiet location near the centre of the island so easy to get about (though bring a good road map). Plenty of space for two but can sleep four. Lots of equipment and stuff to keep a family amused on a wet day. Short drive to an excellent farm shop where most types of produce are sold.
Mrs Herman August 2023
We really enjoyed our stay. It was a fabulous central location to access the different attractions yet so peaceful and quiet. The cottage was fairly modern and felt lovely and cosy. It was very close to Black Gang Chine (only 12 mins drive away) which was a hit with our 6 year old. Booking was very easy and communication was quick and effective.
Mr Rowsell July 2023
Delightful barn. Very well presented in excellent grounds. Easy walk to the local pub or into Godshill across the fields. Happy to recommend.
Mrs Marshall-Broom June 2023
Excellent , Not large property, but a reasonable space and cosy for 4. Lovely views, secluded and space for dog. We would rebook if we ever return to the island.
Ms Prime May 2023
You will love it there for the peace and tranquility, the dog will love the freedom and is central for most amenities
Mr Butt September 2022
Great location for exploring the Island.
Quiet, scenic location.
Well equipped and very comfortable.
Miss Keating July 2022
An idyllic rural location. Very relaxing and all comforts were catered for. I'd highly recommend staying.
Mr Wells June 2022
Very clean and well equipped on excellent walking routes. Dog friendly and a very quiet location within easy walking distance of Godshill pubs and restaurants including a very good Vegan.
Ms Prime April 2022
What a lovely place to stay, if your after peace and tranquility then Grafton Cottage is your place. You will need a car as it's a drive to amenities. There are lovely walks but I wouldn't recommend the road as it's a bit narrow for walkers and cars. Good place to take the dog as they have lovely grounds to run in a safe place. Good place to visit all the place IOW has to offer. Definitely going to revisit here it's lovely
Mrs Lawrence April 2022
Grafton Cottage is a lovely property in a glorious location, perfectly situated with easy access to local pubs and Godshill village, as well as nearby beaches. The area is rural and incredibly peaceful; we slept well each night. The host was welcoming and friendly and answered any queries we had immediately. Rooms are small but cosy and comfortable. The property is fitted with all mod- cons, as well as extra touches such as books for children and a great DVD collection, which was greatly appreciated.
Mr Weibel November 2021
Grafton Cottage is a delightful place to stay, a beautiful, peaceful location set in lovely grounds and with footpaths right outside. The barn is warm, homely and very comfortable, the shower is superb and the kitchen lovely to use with all mod cons. Parking is convenient, right in front of the accommodation. Grafton Cottage is set in a quiet country lane, very little traffic, more horses then cars!

Beautiful barn in gorgeous setting. Great for walking and dogs are made very welcome.
Mrs MacDonald September 2021
We had a wonderful stay. The barn was perfect for us, very comfortable and clean. Adults, toddler and dog all loved it. We would recommend Grafton Cottage and would love to visit again.
Mr Bownes September 2021
We returned for a second year ! A lovely cottage barn in a great location. Will definitely be going back again.
Mrs Lewis August 2021
Really comfy beds and pillows. Wonderful location
Mrs Roberts June 2021
Kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed for self catering. Beautiful enclosed grounds.
Mrs Morsley June 2021
Very quiet location. Very well equipped. Wonderful shared outdoor space for dogs or relaxing in.
Mr Sercombe May 2021
Excellent quiet location about 3/4 hour to anywhere. Large expanse of enclosed well kept lawned area for dogs to run. We had 2 and found the I of W very do friendly Lots of local cafes. We used the Taverners and Whites for evening meals both very good , but you need to book as well attended. Suitable for family with two young children but maybe a bit compact for four adults. Lounge has two small windows and main bedroom a ceiling window that would be better if fitted with a black out blind. Overall the cottage is nice, well kitted out, has a friendly owner who we met once and I would describe it as cosy rather than spacious suitable for a young family. There is no reason not to recommend and I would be happy to stay there again.
ms Jarvis April 2021
Lovely comfortable barn in beautiful peaceful surroundings. 21st birthday getaway was lovely.
Mr Bownes October 2020
A lovely stay at Grafton Cottage.
It was clean and tidy and very well laid out.
The Barn itself is situated in a great quiet location just outside Godshill.
The rooms are nicely spec’d out and comfortable. Perfect for our mini break.
In the lead up to our visit the Classic Cottages team (Tracy & Jade) were very helpful and easily contactable at all times.
Will definitely be coming again.

Mrs Mason September 2020
A beautiful place in lovely grounds. We had a super relaxing week's stay and hope to return. Lots to do and stunning scenery. Perfect spot for peace and quiet. Our dalmatian loved it too. Isle of Wight really are very welcoming of dogs and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend a holiday here.
Mrs Weber August 2020
We liked the remoteness and quietness of the location and all the outside space available to us. It was the ideal property in COVID-19 times, away from everything. The property was extremely well equipped and the owners very friendly and helpful. We couldn’t have wished for a better holiday this year.
Mrs Linley July 2020
A gorgeous cottage in beautiful grounds in the perfect location. We would happily stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the Isle of Wight.
Ms Green July 2020
Really great little cottage, really comfortable with plenty of amenities and well located just a short walk from Godshill across farm land. Good for dog walks straight out the door and 20 minutes drive to a number of great beaches.
Mr Hughes September 2019
Is a beautiful place to relax and was perfect for us and our Dog to explore the island. Would recommend
Mr Donoven September 2019
I am reluctant to because I don't want to find it fully booked next year! It really is a wonderful cottage set in excellent grounds and in a prefect location. It s superbly fitted, spacious and we feel "at home" immediately on arrival. The only possible problem for us is should my wife's disability deteriorate in which case she would not be able to get up the stairs. She has already refused my offer to give her a piggy back. We try not to "bother" the owners but they are very welcoming, friendly and, as I mentioned, with both of us not getting younger we feel as though if we did have any serious problems there is someone there we could turn to.
Mr Butt June 2019
A really well presented property in a lovely setting. Everything one might need for an enjoyable stay. The best level of entertainment equipment I have experienced. Vinyl , CDs and DVDs galore and multiple machines to play them on.
Well located in the centre of the Island.
Mrs Scott June 2019
Lovely, well equipped barn conversion set in immaculate grounds. Quiet position, centrally located for exploring the island. Another Classic Cottages success!

Grafton Cottage certainly deserves its gold star award. Fantastic accommodation set in beautiful grounds. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, we had everything we needed and more. Our hosts were on hand should we had needed them and we would highly recommend staying at this beautiful barn conversion. We look forward to retuning.
