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.

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 a stable door 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 fixed handrailed stairs lead up to two more bedrooms - a charming double and a twin with views out to the garden. Also upstairs is a bathroom with bath, handheld shower and 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.

Very picturesque cottage with lovely garden. Situated in a chocolate box village. The owners have thought of everything you may need and it it tastefully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the view from the bottom of the garden is spectacular. You can just glimpse the sea which is only a 20 minute walk away

Although a bit out of the way for me as an old Cowes boy, the Cottage is perfect for exploring the South and West of the Island, you can be in Sandown, Shanklin and Newport all within 20 minutes drive.

From the moment we saw Appletree Cottage, we knew we would be coming back ... and we never return to the same place! Perfectly situated - nowhere is too far away.

Beautiful cottage, very well appointed and extremely comfortable. We spent a great two weeks here. The location is excellent for exploring the west side of the island, with beaches close and terrific walks on the downs easily accessible. Not ideal if you want total quiet as there is some road noise but in all other respects a great choice.
