Property code: IC105

This delightful cottage is within walking distance of the sandy beaches of Colwell Bay and Totland Bay, providing an ideal base for enjoying everything the Isle of Wight has to offer.

Nestled on the west side of the island, this cottage lies within an excellent walking area. A coastal path leads south to natural local landmark, The Needles, and more walks and cycle trails run northwards to the attractive coastal port at Yarmouth. The sandy bays are popular with islanders and visitors alike, with plenty of swimming, boating, and fishing spots. There’s lots to do inland too, the small market town of Freshwater is within walking distance of the cottage, offering a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and a golf course with gorgeous, panoramic coastal views. 

This charming cottage has stunning garden views throughout. Most rooms are south-west facing, providing a light and sunny environment. The attractive kitchen is equipped with an electric fan oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, and dishwasher, a separate freezer and washing machine are available outside in an outhouse. Here you’ll also find a quaint breakfast area with seating for six - a great spot for discussing the day’s plans over your morning coffee. The large open-plan lounge/dining room is the perfect place to unwind, with an open fire that gives a real homely feel. There’s ample seating and a TV/DVD, so the whole family can relax together after a busy day exploring. In the dining area you will also find a woodburner, which is perfect for more formal meals. There’s also a ground floor WC, and a side lobby with washing machine and freezer. Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, as well as a bathroom with rain shower over the bath, and WC. 

Enjoy the sun in the cottage’s south-west facing garden, offering an enclosed space to relax. There’s a large sunken garden in the centre, and garden furniture on the terrace so you can make the most of any good weather with a spot of al fresco dining. The cottage is approached via a fairly narrow driveway where up to four cars can be parked; entrance to the driveway from the road is narrowest point. It is suitable for larger cars with a turn around space at its widest point, at the top of the drive by reversing into the garage which can also be used for storing small boats and bicycles.

Loved the cottage and garden! The cottage was clean, comfortable, very well equipped and in a great location for easy access from the Yarmouth ferry and for car access to the rest of the IOW. Really peaceful setting, despite being in a residential area, and the garden was a lovely bonus when the weather was kind. The narrow driveway was a bit dauntRead moreing, but there was plenty of parking in the road outside so we used the drive only for unloading / loading. Hide

Excellent accommodation in a secluded spot which is ideally located for exploration of the quietest part of the IOW. Being a group of 3 couples we found plenty of space for both socialising and areas to be on your own.

We had a great holiday at Romany, the setting was ideal with just a short walk from two beautiful beaches and the local shops. West IOW was beautiful with so many things to do and see and none of it too far away! The driveway to the house was very tricky even for experienced drivers but apart from that everything was great!
