Baltija is situated in the semi-rural coastal area of St Lawrence on the south of the Island. St Lawrence is renowned for its mild climate and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lanes and footpaths can be followed directly from the property to the sea at Woody Bay which is a ten to fifteen minute walk away. The picturesque seaside resort of Ventnor is within a ten-minute drive and closer still, is the attractive Ventnor Botanical Garden and Steep Hill Cove - a particularly striking sandy cove with a restaurant and tea shop. The sweeping beaches and resorts of Sandown and Shanklin are within a twenty minute drive. Visitors also have easy access to the small coves and breath-taking countryside on the west side of the Island.

Baltija is a detached south facing property set within its own large, private garden. It is one of four properties in a private close in the extensive grounds of an old rectory. It occupies a peaceful and secluded position with no passing traffic.

A door opens from the kitchen into the garden. The property has two double and two single bedrooms. A travel cot and high chair can be provided if required.

A nice deceptively large 4 bed bungalow with good size rooms, quiet location (if you dont mind the fowl) Youll have to drive to get anywhere. But nothing is really far on the IOW. A bit of TLC and this property would be ace. But in its current condition we would still return :)

Reviewed by Roger 14th June 2019

A well equipped bungalow in a tranquil setting (other then the Cockerel and Guniea fowl next door which make a racket). Comfortable beds and sofas were much appreciated. Very well equipped although some maintenance issues need resolving, particularly plumbing.

Baltija is a lovely bungalow, but a car is definitely needed to get around the area. It is so quiet and the rabbits and chickens in the garden and the guinea fowl on the drive are interesting extras!

Cottage was excellent, very peaceful and spacious. We had wild life around the cottage .which was great to watch, very relaxing.

The cottage was lovely really comfortable and had so many extras in it that we didnt expect. We had 3 generations in our party and one was disabled and there was so much space so was perfect for our needs.

We have enjoyed our stay at Baltija and love the St Lawrence location. One highlight was spotting a red squirrel in the garden, We appreciated the welcoming wine and biscuits - many thanks and found the cottage mostly well equipped, though some oven gloves would be useful. It was very windy during our stay and this gave us some fantastic body boardRead moreing at Ventnor and Sandown. Other highlights included the blackgang chine, The roman villa at Brading, Carisbrooke Castle and the dinosaur footprints at Compton are a must Hide

Lovely week, very, very hot most of the time. Highlight of the week was seeing red squirrels in the garden and badgers every evening in the field down the lane. A week is certainly not long enough to explore the whole island so we shall have to return! We enjoyed sitting out on the verandah in the warm evenings, a great addition.

Botanical Garden nearby, well worth a visit, and useful shops in Ventnor. Spyglass Inn, Buddle Inn, Arreton Barns, Brightstone Church - lovely stay!
