SPOTLIGHT on Newbarn Country Cottages, Gatcombe

An ideal base for you to explore the our beautiful Island Newbarn lies in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty  to the south of the small hamlet of Gatcombe in a secluded valley below the wooded slopes of the chalk downs which form the backbone of the island. Although consisting of only a handful of cottages, Gatcombe once had its own school and watermill (now derelict) and still has a fine 13th century church, originally the private chapel of the Lord of the manor Gatcombe. Sheltered by the woods of Gatcombe Park the church has benefited from many alterations over the centuries, so little of the original remains apart from the front and some intriguing legends.

From this ideal location all parts of the island are easily reached by car. Whether you love sandy beaches, spectacular scenery or the peace of a nature reserve, you can be there within 30 minutes. For those who enjoy walking Carisbrooke Castle is less than 3 miles to the north along the Shepherds Trail and many other walks can be started here, some enjoying spectacular views over the island and south coast of Dorset and Hampshire.

While the island is a walkers paradise with an   extensive, well marked network it is also a Mecca for cyclists and mountain bikers. Many other Activities are catered for locally including horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, sailing, golf and even ghost walks. More extreme sports such as para-gliding and water sports are also available.
