Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting. Quiet and secluded, but five minutes from Shanklin. Had a weekend in November, "wintry" outside, but lovely and warm inside. If you fancy a few days (or longer) away over the coming months, I genuinely doubt you could find somewhere nicer to spend them! Cottage rating: 5 Stars

This delightful cottage is very attractively situated in a peaceful rural hamlet in beautiful countryside. The cottage is in a good walking area with nearby footpaths leading to woodland and to the downs above Ventnor. The cottage is only 1.5 miles from the lovely sandy beach of Shanklin, a small coastal town with a variety of restaurants and entertainments. The neighbouring seaside towns of Sandown and Ventnor are within an easy 10 minute drive.
