  • Charming cottage nestled in the stunning Isle of Wight countryside with views towards Culver Cliffs
  • Explore more than three acres of expansive garden and private woodland adjoining National Trust woodland
  • Close to Sandown Beach with its miles of soft golden sands
Property code: IC015

An enchanting cottage on the east-side of the island, where you can relax and enjoy tranquil countryside surroundings and gaze out at the wonderful views, towards the spectacular Culver Cliffs and dramatic Ventnor Downs.

One of two adjoining cottages, this accommodation offers a peaceful location to relax and unwind. Located on a bridleway there is no passing traffic, only wild rabbits, red squirrels and woodpeckers as frequent garden visitors. The adjoining cottage is used only as an occasional retreat by the cottage owner. Beautiful walks can be enjoyed from the front door, through woodland, to the villages of Alverstone and Newchurch, or towards the coast at Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor. Cyclists can join the nearby Alverstone cycle path which links with Sandown, Newport and Cowes, and keen fishermen can arrange to fish in the local lake. The Isle of Wight is best known for its sandy beaches and traditional seaside holiday resorts offering plenty of swimming, paddling and beachside relaxation. Further inland sits Borthwood Copse, renowned for its ancient oaks and sweet chestnuts. Enjoy the short woodland walk whilst spotting red squirrels, and at certain times of year, a gorgeous carpet of bluebells.

On entering the cottage you’ll find the kitchen/diner with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and a dining table for relaxed meals. A freezer and washing machine are also provided. There is an attractive and comfortable lounge area with Smart TV and DVD player and a bathroom with hand held shower over the bath and a WC. At each end of the cottage there is a sunny conservatory for relaxing and taking in the views. There are three pretty bedrooms up the cottage style stairs  - one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and one single bedroom - the latter is reached by passing through the twin bedroom and down a couple of steps.

Outside the cottage is an abundance of land. Set in over three acres of garden and woodland, there’s really no reason to leave, particularly with outdoor furniture available for delightful al fresco dining. Off-road parking for two cars is available close to the cottage. Access to the cottage is along a single track lane which leads to the bridleway and so is not suitable for low slung vehicles.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Lovely cottage located in rural countryside. We enjoyed being able to do different walks directly accessed from the cottage itself without the use of the car.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was ideal - quiet and peaceful, in charming rural surroundings. Access is via an unmade lane, but we were able to use it in a Golf with no problem. The cottage is cosy, but has a lovely garden and extensive woodland to explore. We thoroughly recommend a stay here.

The location and view was good. The track to the cottage was very rough, and the sides not cut back enough and scratched the sides of our car, the place smelt musty and damp, the condensation on the windows was very bad, the beds were hard. We will not be going back.

The location is very bucolic albeit that everything in the Isle Of Wight is never a very long drive away. The track that leads to the cottage is narrow & the final 100 yards or so might present a challenge to non four wheel drive cars if the weather is inclement.

Lovely characterful cottage in an isolated spot amongst the fields and meadows of south-east Isle of Wight. Cottage was clean, well presented and full of all the facilities youd need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Property is positioned at the end of a lane directly facing a meadow of horses and cows. Short walk to nearest supermarket. Easy Read moredriving distance to Sandown and Shanklin. Really friendly hosts. Hide
