Lavender Barn is an 18th century converted barn situated down a quiet farm lane in a rural spot but only a short distance from Newport. The town has a good shopping centre, many pubs and restaurants and quite a few historical buildings. (Ghost walks are popular in the summer!) Beautiful Carisbrooke Castle is situated within walking distance, as is Carisbrooke High Street, (10/15 minutes) which has two pubs and two excellent restaurants.
I do have a cat, and for this reason do not allow dogs.

The space
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER I CAN ONLY HOST A SINGLE PERSON WHO NEEDS ACCOMODATION FOR WORK PURPOSES.
The double bedroom on the first floor has an ensuite shower and a six foot bed and the single room (situated on the ground floor off the kitchen) has an ensuite with bath and shower overhead. Both rooms have tea/coffee making facilities. Neither room has a TV.
There is plenty of parking in the drive and guests are free to use the garden but please bear in mind the back garden is an ongoing project. If the weather is nice however, the summer house at the front is an ideal place to relax and unwind and enjoy the view.

Guest access
The dining/kitchen area is available for guest use, as is the front garden, and the summer house. Garden chairs are provided.
It is possible to arrive earlier than the check in time of 2pm to leave cases and your car if you are going walking, and please advise me of this.
Guests should be aware that all shared spaces are also used by myself.

Other things to note
COVID-19
To assist guests during this time, there are reminder notices in bedrooms and shared spaces. Stringent cleaning methods are in operation, which involve both cleaning and sanitising. There are extra cleaning materials available in bedroom and shared spaces. I have a key safe if guests prefer not to be received personally.
I have some 25% off RedFunnel ferry discount codes when you come over to the island for 2 nights or more.
I have a large shed where bikes can be safely locked away at night.
There is a resident cat on the premises.
You can enjoy lovely walks from the front door, either to nearby Parkhurst Forest, or upto Tennyson Down. Or you can simply relax in the front garden or in the summer house and enjoy the view.

Location

Newport, United Kingdom

Please be aware that my 200m approach lane is a little rough as it's a farm lane.
If you are on foot, there are food shops a 10 minute walk away, along a farm track which then emerges onto a road. In Gunville there is small supermarket, with Home Bargains across the road. A little further down Carisbrooke High Street there is a small Co-op. There is also a pharmacy (which has parking) in the High Street, attached to a surgery. If you have a car, Morrisons, Lidl, Asda and Sainsburys are in Newport.
200m up the lane is a bus stop. From here you can travel towards West Wight, or into Newport Bus Station where you can change to reach many other places on the island. If you are driving, Cowes is 15/20 minutes away, and Ryde about 25 minutes, depending on the traffic.
