Afton Thatch Lodge is small, detached, thatched cottage set in the grounds of Afton Thatch. It is accessed through a shared drive, yet seperated by hedging. It has its own garden, reached through three french windows facing east towards the downs and the sunrise.

Our guests really put the magic of the place best.

'A red squirrel put in an appearance in the tree which you can see from the bedroom on our final morning. We didn't eat out in the evenings as we couldn't imagine that we would get such a super view in a restaurant as we did from the cottage!' Couple, April 2010

'A final email to express our joy of staying at the Lodge the past 2 weeks. It’s been a real pleasure to see that everything was well equipped and clean. The beautiful garden and tranquility of the place was balm to the soul.' Family of 4, July 2011

The Lodge offers accommodation for a couple and children or guests. The master bedroom on the first floor has views over the downs and estuary plus an ensuite bathroom with deep double ended roll top bath. On the ground floor is the open plan kitchen and living room with two "over and under" occasional day beds which can sleep up to four more, although the cottage is really best suited to a couple.

The Lodge is equipped with central heating. The simple kitchen area has a two burner deluxe gas hob, a microwave with a conventional oven, a toaster and a kettle. The living area has a large television with surround speakers. The garden has its own vegetable patch, where you can feel free to help yourself to seasonal vegetables.

Afton Thatch Lodge is available seperately or with Afton Thatch year round for weeks, short breaks and weekends. Rented together with Afton Thatch, the properties together make an ideal location for a multi-generational family reunion. To see a price list please click here.

'We have just got back and I wanted to let you know that we had a lovely long weekend on the Isle of Wight. We found the cottage delightful, comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed, perfect for walks and cycle rides.  We just brought the bikes with us and cycled from the ferry terminal so we found the situation of the cottage ideal.  We were close to the village and the Red Lion and were an easy cycle ride from the Co-op for all the provisions.'
