Prepare romantic meals for two in the contemporary kitchen, which includes everything you should need during your stay including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and door that opens onto the garden. Once prepared, continue through to the inviting lounge/diner where you will find a dining table and chairs, sofa for two, Smart TV and a fantastic modern wood burner set into a charming brick fireplace. This impressive brick fireplace is the separation between the lounge and the bedroom. The double bedroom is light and airy with cosy rugs, an occasional chair, plenty of hanging space and a door opening onto the garden, perfect for those summer mornings. One step down you will find the wet room with a shower (narrows to 2ft wide). There is also a separate WC with large wash basin.

The cottage is ideal for a couple on a break to the aisle of Wight. If you like being away from others but close enough to the amenities this place is ideal. We chose it for these reasons! Everything is supplied and easy car parking is a big advantage. We very much enjoyed our stay and will certainly consider again when we return.

Our stay at Moonfleet Cottage was just perfect, such a quaint little place in a wonderful setting. Waking up to the sound of the sea followed by a brisk walk up and down Tennyson Down with Winston ( our Black Lab ) and a coffee sat at the Seaview table in the garden... what's not to like. The Cottage itself has been cleverley restored with lovely fRead moreeatures and so practical. Our week on the IOW went so smoothly and returning every day to Moonfleet just felt like coming home..just so lovely. Hide
