Newport, Isle Of Wight, PO30 5LY



The Hobbit House Originally built as a small cottage, the property has been extended over time but retains characterful features including the shingle roof. The house has been modernised in recent years with uPVC double glazed windows throughout (with the exception of a small feature window). Most rooms benefit from views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

Approached over a short shared track the house is set back from the Forest Road and part of the garden backs onto farmland. This provides an attractive and private setting with excellent access to both the facilities of nearby Newport as well as the Island's road network and ferry links. Extensive walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep within Parkhurst Forest.
