A tastefully appointed countryside lodge surrounded by lush oak trees and tropical foliage. Situated on the fringes of historic Whippingham, this tranquil escape is ideal for couples or solo travellers. Embark on a scenic saunter along the glistening water edge on the Medina Estuary Circular Walk (within 1 mile), before digging into an al fresco afternoon tea in the private garden.
This perfectly proportioned property features a contemporary interior with vibrant artwork, crisp neutral hues, and earthy green accent tones. Shrug off outer layers and ease out of shoes in the hallway. Stepping inside, enjoy the easy sentiment that flows throughout the open-plan space. Portion out some locally caught seafood takeaway in the sleek kitchen and peep through the quirky porthole window. Crack open a bottle of the good stuff then settle at the intimate dining table for a special supper. Retire to the lounge and snuggle beneath the plush throw with a book or flick through the TV for an easy watch. In summer months, let the balmy breeze drift inside from the patio door. As the night draws in, rest up in the peaceful double with exposed beams and ambient mood lighting. Completing the home is a charming garden space with outdoor furniture, as well as a shared outdoor heated pool.
Peruse the opulent flower-peppered gardens of Osborne House (1.5 miles) then admire the sweeping ocean vistas from the sandy shoreline of Osborne Beach (2 miles). Soak in the seaside charm as you wander the harbourfront of Cowes (8 miles) then toast with a sundowner perched on a waterfront wine bar terrace.
