At the entrance gate to Great East Standen Manor there is a large pond, so sit here for a while and feed the ducks. A bridle path leads to a network of footpaths and bridle paths that run across the Island. You are welcome to bring your own horse, carriage or horse box and enjoy the superb out riding from the Cottage. Alternatively, you might enjoy metal detecting on this site where there has been a house since the 13th Century. There is an abundance of wildlife - buzzards, owls, red squirrels, herons, badgers, stoats and foxes. The cottage has its own garden and patio area with a barbecue, where you can sit and hear nothing but the birds. The cottage is an ideal holiday haven for bird watchers, photographers, painters as well as walkers and lovers of the peace, beauty and tranquility of the countryside.

The cottage is thought to date back to around 1503 or earlier. A more detailed history of the Manor can be read on our history page. A stone mullion gothic style window and various ancient timbers were found and they have been incorporated in the restoration of the cottage.The cottage was probably originally built as a chapel and converted to a barn in the 18th century when another floor was added.

This interesting thatched cottage was restored during 2006 & 2007 using traditional methods and materials such as thatch, oak joinery, lime plastering to the highest standards, with the accent on character.
We were successful in winning The Isle of Wight Society Conservation Award in February 2007.

The cottage is south facing and very light and airy. It is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter.

The large ground floor is open plan and has a terracotta tiled floor throughout. The sitting area has a fireplace housing an early Victorian cast iron stove. The kitchen has solid wood units with beech worktops, the kitchen has a built in electric oven and hob, a microwave and dishwasher. There is an easy angled cast iron spiral staircase which allows access to the 1st floor.
