Comfortable and peaceful stay. Walks for the dog, activities for the children, all nearby. Thank-you for the welcome and high standard of house care throughout.

Rocklyn Cottage is attractively situated at Appuldurcombe, on the outskirts of Wroxhall and within 2 miles of the south coast of the island. The cottage is within a 10 minute walk of Appuldurcombe House - this was once the grandest house on the Isle of Wight and it is still an important example of English Baroque Architecture: the 1701 east front has been restored and it is now a beautiful shell set in grounds designed by ‘Capability Brown’. This is a wonderful walking and cycling area with footpaths leading directly from the cottage to Stenbury Downs, the donkey sanctuary and the nearby picturesque village of Godshill with its thatched cottages, teashops and public houses. Footpaths can also be followed to the beautiful coastal area of St. Lawrence. The small seaside resort of Ventnor is within a 5 minute drive; the larger sandy beach of Shanklin is a 10 minute drive away. The market town of Newport, with its variety of shops and medieval castle, is also nearby.

Rocklyn is an attractive semi detached property which enjoys glimpses of the nearby downs and beautiful countryside from several of the rooms. It is in a pleasant semi rural area. The cottage has been furnished and equipped with great care to provide very attractive and comfortable accommodation of a high standard for 5 people in 3 bedrooms. It is centrally heated and double glazed with fitted carpets throughout most of the property. On the ground floor there is a lovely open plan sitting room with two sofas, an arm chair, flat screen television with Freesat/DVD/CD player; a very attractive dining area, a modern fitted kitchen with a ceramic sink, electric double oven/grill and ceramic hob; microwave, washing machine and refrigerator. (A tumble dryer and freezer are also provided). There is also a cloakroom with a W.C. and basin. Stairs lead up to three delightful bedrooms – a spacious double room, a twin room and a lovely single room; plus a tiled bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and w.c. A folding bed, travel cot/high chair can be provided if required. Heating and electricity at no extra charge.

The cottage has an attractive open plan garden at the front of the property and a courtyard style garden at the rear with garden furniture, lighting and a small water feature with water falling over stones. This garden is fully fenced and a gate opens on to a path which provides access to a private garage and shared parking area. Visitors may wish to use the garage to park their car or for the storage of bikes or a small boat. Additional parking is available in a small lane at the side of the cottages. It is not possible to park immediately in front of the cottage as it is on raised ground with a pedestrian access. Public house and small general stores within 5 minutes walk. Nearby places to visit include the Falconry Centre at Appuldurcombe, the Donkey Sanctuary, Ventnor Botancical Gardens, Blackgang Chine Adventure Park, Amazan Adventure and Carisbrooke Castle. Ventnor golf course can be seen in the distance from the cottage and is always welcoming to visitors who wish to play golf.
