Lovely bungalow. Very well equipped and excellent for our dog in the enclosed garden. Walking distance to the pub and village shop. Brighstone is very quiet and there are lots of lovely walks. You have to be prepared to drive out if you want to see some life. A bit too quiet for us but would suit cyclists and walkers.
