A charming cottage which nestles in the quaint village of Havenstreet, on the outskirts of Ryde, provides the perfect getaway for friends and family to explore the island.
Sitting in the picturesque village of Havenstreet, this beautiful semi-detached home sleeps four people over two bedrooms – making it the perfect island retreat for small families or groups of friends who want to enjoy a little peace and quiet on holiday. Spend happy days hiking through the forest at Firestone Copse or strolling along the beach at Ryde, and relaxed evenings admiring the horses as you sip a glass of wine on the property’s terrace.
Step inside and you’ll be greeted by a large open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner – the hub of the home. Take a moment to make yourself at home in front of the wood burner before heading to the kitchen area to cook up a storm for your loved ones and then get everyone together to eat at the dining table. Alternatively, head out into the garden, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco. This property is blessed with some outstanding outdoor space, so you can spend the rest of your evening admiring the horses in the paddocks that back onto garden, or watching the sun sink behind the towers of Queen Victoria’s Osbourne House. At the end of the day you’ll find two lovely bedrooms to choose from.
