    Little Idyll is a grade II listed thatched, stone property, dating back to the 16th century, set in Ningwood, in the beautiful West Wight countryside.  

    The exterior of Little Idyll projects an image of the quintessential 'Old England'. Step inside, and you'll find that the stonework and ancient timbers have been skillfully blended with a few contemporary pieces.

    With only two double bedrooms, the house is ideal for an intimate escape in splendid, rural surroundings. The large garden has a tranquil fish pond, and usually has a flurry of garden birds popping in for their meals. As well as the odd fox, rabbit, pheasant and woodpecker. You may find that you waste a couple of hours just watching all the creatures rush about with their daily business.

    Little Idyll is also home to 2 mischievous and adorable cats, Fergus and Florence.

    Local Information

    Little Idyll is only a short walk from the Horse and Groom pub (winner of the Great British Pub Awards 2009), including the 1st pub crazy golf on the Island. There are numerous country walks nearby, both for beginners, and for reasonably fit walkers.  

    The beautiful town of Yarmouth is 5 miles down the road. The town has grown up as a result of its natural harbour, which is guarded by Yarmouth Castle, a fortification built to protect the Solent from invading forces by Henry VIII in 1547. 

    Calbourne water mill and rural museum is 3 miles away. The mill is known to be approximately 1,000 years old, and was first mentioned in the Domesday Book A.D 1086, which makes it the original Island attraction!
