A stylish wooden lodge that opens into a blissful woodland garden and is located near the scenic village of Whippingham. This hidden gem is a wonderful stay for young families or couples seeking a secluded retreat in nature. Stroll through stately rooms and admire blooming tulip displays at Osbourne House (1.5 miles), then stretch out on the deck to scoff supper with a wonderfully leafy backdrop.
This inviting property features a thoughtfully designed interior with an airy neutral colour palette, plush soft furnishings, and rustic country decor details. Shrug off outer layers at the door then be lulled into the light-flooded lounge/kitchen/diner. Slide open the striking bifold doors to create a breezy indoor-outdoor space then sink onto the soft corner sofa with a post-adventure tipple. Unwind with a film on the TV or browse the bookshelf for some evening entertainment. Padding into the crisp shaker kitchen, cook up a storm with local produce then gather for a leisurely evening feast at the polished wooden dining table. In warmer months, grab a bottle and soak up the mild Isle of Wight climate from the deck before turning in for the night. Choose from a tranquil double with private deck access or a cosy single with an additional trundle bed. When morning breaks, sip your coffee from the patio, throw down the yoga mat for a flow on the lawn, or saunter through the wildlife garden. There is also a shared heated outdoor pool for keen swimmers.
Blow away the cobwebs with an amble along the Medina Estuary Circular Walk (within 1 mile) then refuel with fresh bakes and brews at a local tea room in Whippingham (1 mile). Venture to Cowes (8 miles) to enjoy a fresh seafood platter while spotting the boats gliding through the harbour.
