Property code: IC099

Approached via a long driveway from the quaint village of Niton Undercliff on the south coast of the island, this cottage is located on one side of a large courtyard, detached from the main house. This peaceful property, built of Island stone, dates back to the 1800's and is surrounded by several acres of private garden, with lush lawns rolling down towards the sea, offering spectacular views. This area is a haven for keen walkers, with a short walk to the coastal path which extends to The Needles. It’s great for spotting wildlife as there’s an abundance on this part of the island. There are wonderful welcoming pubs in Niton which serve home cooked meals. A short car drive away is the sandy beach of Ventnor, and many smaller beaches and coves within easy reach.

This cottage has been decorated and furnished with care and attention to detail throughout, offering an aesthetic that cleverly fuses countryside and coastal styles. Many original features have been retained, including the flagstone floor in the hall, which you’ll notice as you step into the house. There’s a large lounge with windows overlooking the courtyard and TV/DVD - a perfect spot to unwind after a busy day exploring. We regret it is not possible to use the wood burner in the lounge. The open-plan kitchen/diner is equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The Aga is only for use in the colder winter months. There’s also a large dining table with ample space for the whole party. It has three charming bedrooms for a good night’s sleep, plus there’s a bathroom with a shower, and a separate WC. 

Step out onto the terrace from the main bedroom and enjoy the views across the courtyard to the gardens and sea. Guests can also follow a path through the gorgeous larger gardens of the main house to secluded spots, including a place where children can run around and play games. (Please be aware that there are two ponds in the gardens, so children need close supervision). Off-road parking is available for two cars - one in the garage and another in the adjoining courtyard.

The cottage was general exactly as we expected for a property of that age.and it was a lovely place to stay in. There were tradesmen in every day we were there carrying out work in the main house and on the odd days we stayed in the constant saws and tool noise was a little disappointing but we also understand that these things need to be done and Read morethe tradesmen only carried the work out during respectful hours. No noise before 9am and none after 5pm. Hide

The location is quiet and peaceful yet there are two pubs, a seaside restaurant and a grocers within walking distance. The grounds are a special feature of this property. Our grandchildren loved playing in and exploring the extensive gardens. The owner was friendly and helpful.

Not suitable for children as could fall through broken walls and half finished building to ground 20 feet below. Beware uneven steps. Kitchen very poorly equipped. Beds excellent, location great and gardens are superb. An idiosyncratic property with interesting heritage bur really does need some updating. Owner very jolly and pleasant lady.

We had a lovely stay here, beautiful house and grounds. Unfortunately upon arrival the third bedroom wasnt ready, there were 5 of us and the house was only made up for 2. We contacted the owner who unlocked the bedroom for us but the beds were not made up. We also paid extra for towels which were not supplied. The owner did rectify this for us.

Lovely location, very quiet and secluded. A good base for exploring the IOW. It would very much benefit from a second W.C especially if it were at full capacity (sleeps 6). The main bedroom would also benefit from a king size bed rather than the small double it currently has as this is a lovely spacious room and the kitchen suffers from damp, whichRead more is such a shame as the cottage is in a great location and has a wonderful pub within walking distance which we would highly recommend.

Excellent week at Puckaster Cottage, superb location that is secluded, quiet and relaxing. Walk around gardens was beautiful and relaxing. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable with the exception of kitchen which was damp and cold during a very warm and sunny week.

Beautiful old cottage with lots of character and charm. Not at all small with its high ceilings and large rooms. Its set in large picturesque grounds. Lots of lovely walks to explore on your door step although it is hilly. You'll find a light house, beach cafe and some tunnels too. There is well stocked shop in the village along with a post office Read moreand pharmacy. Hide
