With its thatched roof, exposed beams and beautiful garden, this Grade II listed property is the quintessential English cottage - and the perfect base to explore this stunning part of island.
Ready to explore? The charming village of Brighstone is a short stroll away. Here there’s a bistro, a general store for tasty island produce and a pub selling hearty food. Or how about visiting the golden sands of Brighstone Beach? Yours within a fifteen-minute walk, it’s a wonderful spot for a sandy stroll. Something more energetic? This area is fantastic for walking and cycling. Footpaths from Brighstone lead up to the Down, where the hilltop walk to Freshwater Bay offers jaw-dropping views. Alternatively take the coast path along the dramatic coastline towards Alum Bay. Oh and bring your camera. It’s just a short drive to The Needles, one of the UK’s most spectacular coastal sights.
As for the cottage itself, it’s worth getting excited about: a 300-year old Grade II listed cottage that blends traditional features with spectacular modern furnishings. A stable door leads you in to the property and the spacious lounge area. Make yourself at home with ample comfortable seating, a TV/DVD and French doors that can be opened to the garden. The kitchen has all you need to rustle up something tasty: an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer as well as a dishwasher and washing machine. After which you and your guests can eat together in the dining area with oak table and chairs. The ground floor also features a shower room with shower and WC as well as a spacious double bedroom. The rope-handrailed stairs lead up to two more bedrooms - a charming double and a twin with views out across the garden. (An extra single bed can be added to the twin by request.) Also upstairs is a bathroom with WC.
Outside the property there’s a beautiful, expansive garden with small rockeries and a lawn. Again the views across the neighbouring fields add to the quintessential English cottage feel. There’s plenty of garden furniture if you’d like to dine alfresco and a barbecue for those balmy summer evenings. Bringing your car to the Isle of Wight? There’s private off-road parking for two cars beyond the neighbouring property as well as plenty of room to park in the quiet close outside the cottage.
