Relax in nature with a retreat to this exquisite cabin, nestled in the dappled shade of mature trees and home to an abundance of fuzzy rescue animals. Situated within easy reach of Newport, this romantic bolthole is perfect for couples. Stroll beneath the imposing 13th-century ruins of Carisbrooke Castle (4 miles), before popping a celebratory bottle of fizz and feasting perched on your woodland stone-chipped patio.
This rustic cabin boasts a beautifully finished country interior with wall panelling, earthy neutral hues, and polished wooden details. Ease out of muddy hiking boots then ascend the steps to the stable door. Stepping inside, unwind in the perfectly proportioned studio space. Flick on the kettle to brew a well-earned cuppa and raid the kitchen cabinets for some post-adventure snacks. Soak in the peaceful woodland views as you potter by the ceramic Belfast sink. Folding out the dining table to pour over guidebooks or scoff a hearty breakfast. On balmy evenings, prop open the cabin door to let the summer air spill inside. When evening arrives, draw the curtains, and sink into the soft sheets of the double bed. Enjoy an invigorating morning rinse in the sleek shower room. Outside, sip a fresh coffee reclining on the wicker garden furniture, grill up a sizzling feast on the BBQ, or toast a sweet treat on the crackling fire pit. Soak up some rays from the sun loungers in the grassy area beyond.
Indulge in an evening of culture with a theatre performance at the waterfront Quay Arts (2.5 miles) or crunch along the ancient woodland trails of Pankhurt Forest (5 miles) on a crisp autumn morning. Saunter along the sandstone cliff-backed shores of Compton Beach (11.5 miles) then refuel with a scenic picnic lunch with a sweeping coastal backdrop.
