3 bedrooms
2 bathrooms
6 guests


“Badgers Oak ” is one of three lodges available to holiday let, set adjacent to the grounds of Calbourne Water Mill on the Isle of Wight, constructed from cedar and larch with wooden floors, these holiday homes are superbly located, overlooking woodland, a stream and the rural countryside.
Each lodge can sleep up to six people across three upstairs bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and two twin rooms, perfect for families, and small groups, they also allow you to bring your pets on holiday with you too.
The Water Mill has always been a popular Island tourist attraction and beautiful place to visit, set in 35 acres of stunning rural landscape with doves, ducks and waterfowl and of course the famous friendly peacocks that you’ll find wandering freely around the grounds.
When you stay as guests at Badgers Oak or any of the holiday accommodation on site , you will also have free access, when open (please check for opening times to avoid disappointment when booking) to the Water Mill’s attractions which are just a stone’s throw away from your accommodation, enjoy looking around the working mill, play the 18-hole adventure golf course, visit the small war museum and explore the many exhibits. When the attraction is closed the owners are very happy for you to still stretch, your legs and wander the grounds whilst you enjoy your break. Wildlife abounds here with badgers, various birds and famous red squirrels highly likely to be seen during your stay, take a leisurely stroll up towards the barns and view the large portable steam engine and other old farming equipment. Visit the small windmill on the hill, and enjoy a walk by the river
The Mill has existed for over a thousand years and was first mentioned in the doomsday book A.D 1086 making it an original Isle of Wight destination. Still working the mill has supplied flour and animal feeds to the people of the Island over many years. Flour, muesli, and oats are still produced today, which you can purchase on site.
Sit and relax with a lovely cream tea purchased from the cafe or maybe an ice cream for the young ones. The cafe is a converted 17th century cattle barn and you can still see the marks where the cows rubbed against the pillars!

The picturesque rural village of Calbourne takes its name from the stream that passes through town, the Caul Bourne. Arguably one of the prettiest west Wight villages it is not surprising that much of Calbourne is designated a conservation area. Winkle Street or as its alternatively known Barrington Row, is a picturesque row of cottages dating from the 18th-century which looks out on the village stream accessible via local footpaths and bridleways to miles of downland and country walks. The village of Freshwater to the West and the Island's capital town of Newport are both around a fifteen to twenty minute drive

This was a very nice place to stay. The cottage was nice, the location excellent, and the staff friendly. We particularly appreciated being able to use the facilities at the mill without charge both during open hours and out of hours.
