Picture postcard cottage. The village is very good with a nearby pub (and restauraurants) local shop, Post Office and car repair garage. It has an active Football and Cricket pitch on the green outside. It's a short walk to Bembridge Bay and the Duvet is ideal for dogs. I would recommend a holiday in this friendly village.
