This charming two hundred year old cottage is situated in beautiful countryside and enjoys open views across fields to the Solent - a variety of sailing boats and cruise liners can often be seen. It is in a lovely walking and cycling area with footpaths and tracks extending in a variety of directions, including the coast at Wootton Creek, the woods of Briddlesford Copse and Arreton Downs. The cottage is in an excellent location for exploring the island with many places to visit within an easy ten-minute drive. These include the wonderful island home of Queen Victoria - Osborne House, Quarr Abbey, Havenstreet Steam Railway, the Butterfly World, a Lavender Farm, and Robin Hill Country Park. The small floating bridge at Cowes offers easy access to the shops of West Cowes and to the countryside and picturesque coves on the west side of the island. The larger east coast sandy beaches of Ryde, Appley and St Helens are also nearby.

One Dores Hill Cottage is one of a pair of cottages which has been in the same family for two generations. It has recently been renovated with great care to provide attractive and comfortable accommodation for two people. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard to provide a stylish and relaxing place to stay. On the ground floor there is a spacious open-plan living room with a Smart TV/Freeview/DVD - a great place to relax in front of the wood burning stove set into an inglenook fireplace.

We stayed at the cottage for a week in the cool winds of April but was perfectly cosy in the cottage. Brilliant to come back to and relax. Everything provided if you want to cook a full meal and plenty of videos and books to curl up with. The position is beautiful on the Downs with fantastic views but close to the Briddlesford Farm shop for supplieRead mores or a good meal. In fact being central we weren't far from anywhere: Osborne House, Steam Railway, The Garlic Farm (with red squirrels), Ventnor etc. Hide

1 Dores Hill Cottage is one that stands out from the crowd. The location is so peaceful and the cottage and garden are most attractive.

A lovely cottage, beautifully restored and maintained by the owners with everything you could want while on holiday. Well located for visiting just about all the islands tourist attractions and even The Needles, the furthest away was less than an hour's drive. We were very impressed by the 'welcome pack' of milk, bread, wine, butter and a deliciousRead more cake, a lovely surprise. The cars coming and going to the Emporium nextdoor were rather annoying on the days it was open but we would return to No. 1 Hide

Second visit in nine months for us, which says it all. If you like a rural setting but easy access to the island's attractions then this is the place. The cottage is 17th century but has all the comforts and facilities we have come to expect in present times and in a peaceful location. A real joy and we will look forward to our next visit.
