This gorgeous period property is nestled in the heart of Niton. With plenty of local charm, a popular pub just a few minutes’ walk away and the local greengrocers just seconds away (both within 200 metres), this village is idyllic. The famous seaside town of Ventnor is just a short drive away too (4.5 miles); here you’ll find a local pub with stunning coastal views and many beachside restaurants. Heading further afield, you’ve got plenty of attractions such as Osborne House (13.5 miles) and Carisbrooke Castle (11.5 miles), a perfect day out for history lovers. For those in search of an adventure, why not try the Isle of Wight Aqua Park (17 miles) or perhaps try a surf lesson on Compton Beach (14.5 miles)? Coastal path walks are within easy reach, offering incredible panoramic views of the coast and countryside - perfect for stretching your legs and taking in the island air.

This impressive historical building, built of stone from the island, was once the Niton Rectory and it was recorded that in 1675, King Charles II stayed here. This stylish apartment within the building oozes character and is on the ground floor with just a few steps leading down to the door. There is a small, covered porch area, the ideal place to kick off walking boots or beach shoes. Upon entering, you’ll find yourself in the well-dressed hallway leading to the large kitchen. This room is well equipped and with the wood burner-effect electric fire, cosy decor and a breakfast table for four, it’s the perfect spot to debrief your day of adventure over breakfast or a coffee. Heading out through the hallway, you’ll take note of the interesting horseshoe-style layout of this gorgeous apartment. First, you’ll be met with a king-size bedroom; with the same chic decor, it’s hard not to totally relax in this room. Just next door, you’ll find the single room which has a cosy feel and offers a trundle bed allowing you to sleep an additional person upon request. Moving back through the property, you’ll find the beautifully large but cosy lounge/diner with oak beams, ample comfortable furniture and a dining table set for six, so why not curl up in front of the Smart TV and watch a family film at the end of a long day exploring the coastal path? There is a wood burner-effect electric fire in this room too, perfect for warming your toes. Heading through to the second arm of the property, you’ll be met with the main family bathroom, again with stylish decor making it the ideal spot to unwind and soak in the tub. The next room you’ll find is another king-size bedroom, similar in style to the other king-size, however, this room has a garden view. There is also a small separate WC at the end of the corridor.

Finally, as we head back out to the rear of the property via the living room, there is a lovely south-facing, enclosed garden with ample seating and a charcoal BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining in the summer sunshine.

The apartment has many thoughtful additions to make your stay very warm and comfortable. A dog walk a few steps away, as is a good, local supermarket with fresh bread daily and stocks the Islands Mermaid Gin. A great location for touring the island, and Ventnor town is well worth a visit. Osborne House is about a 30 minute drive with easy admissionRead mores and ample parking. Hide

A very comfortable accommodation with a very hospitable host. The village Niton has an excellent, well-stocked local shop so travelling to a supermarket is not really necessary. And theres a nice pub as well, if you do want to eat out!
