A homely redbrick cottage boasting blissful country views and set amidst three nature reserves on the Isle of Wight. With wildlife spotting opportunities aplenty, this abode is a wonderful stay for outdoorsy families or couples. Keen archaeologists can admire the beautifully preserved Brading Roman Villa (2 miles) with striking mosaic floors, before tucking into a sizzling BBQ feast with a lush countryside backdrop.

This inviting property features a cosy cottage interior with warm earthy tones, wooden furnishings, and open-plan living. Step inside and unravel outer layers then sink onto the sofas with a post-adventure brew. Flick through the Smart TV for an easy watch or while away the evening planning out the perfect Isle of Wight itinerary. Settle in for a hearty evening meal gathered around the wooden dining table with views across the outdoor landscape. Rustle up dessert in the stylish wooden-topped shaker kitchen. Later, retire to the comfort of two well-presented bedrooms. Slip into the soft sheets of the double with coordinating furniture or discover an airy twin perfect for little travellers. Drink in crisp mornings as you scoff flakey pastries and sip coffee from the deck. Birdwatchers are sure to delight in spotting the native woodpeckers from the terrace.

Swirl fruity blends and peruse the subterranean cellars during a guided tour of the Agestone Vineyard (1 mile) before stocking up on goodies from the farm shop. Tee off on the sprawling green of Sandown Shanklin Golf Course (400 metres) or satisfy big kids and budding palaeontologists alike with a visit to the interactive Dinosaur Isle Museum (3 miles).
