A contemporary wood-panelled chalet enveloped by rolling fields, situated in the sleepy hamlet of Roud on the southern end of the island. This romantic bolthole is perfect for couples seeking an escape in nature with their waggy-tailed third wheel. Soak in the quintessential English charm of Godshill (2 miles) and admire the medieval architecture and quaint thatched-roof cottages. Back at base, throw a log on the crackling firepit and pop a celebratory bottle of fizz on the raised deck.
This tastefully designed lodge is brimming with sophisticated country flair. Picture French grey and creamy neutral hues, polished leather textures, and breezy open-plan living. Drop beach bags and slip off outer layers at the door then step into the spacious lounge/kitchen/diner. Potter in the matt kitchen to make supper or shake up some pre-dinner drinks on the wooden worktops. Adorn the dark wood dining table with a tempting spread and slide onto the bench seats for a leisurely evening feast. After dinner, stretch out on the sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV. In warmer months, throw open the patio doors to relax in the balmy Isle of Wight climate. Enjoy a relaxing rinse in the shower room before turning in for the night. Slip into the crisp sheets of the plump king-size bed with plump throw pillows. Outside, feast al fresco on the outdoor furniture or snuggle beneath the twinkling night sky from the wooden deck.
Fill your days with beach-based activities such as ambling along the sandy swoop of coastline at Sandown or paddling in the warm waters of Shanklin (each within 8 miles). Admire the imposing medieval castle in Newport (6.5 miles) then tuck into a picnic perched in the shade of an oak tree at the Ventor Botanic Garden (10 miles).
