This beautiful property located behind walled gardens, is in a wonderful position for exploring all the Isle of Wight has to offer, with wonderful history and heritage on the Island.

Set a quarter of a mile from holy Monks Bay Beach and three quarters from cliff-sheltered Ventnor Beach, this exquisite period cottage is the perfect base for families and friends seeking an island sanctuary. It has a rich history with links back to Charles Dickens. One of England’s sunniest spots with its own microclimate, Ventnor boasts a beautiful Botanic Garden, Heritage and Longshoreman’s Museums, art galleries and wonderful independent shops, pubs and restaurants serving delicious locally-caught crab and lobster. Bask on beaches at idyllic Steephill Cove (2 miles), pretty Orchard Bay (2.5 miles) and Mount Bay (2 miles), hugged by the balmy undercliff of Ventnor Botanic Garden.

 

Inside this elegant abode you’ll find an interior lavished with much love and care. From the Italian limestone flooring to the plantation shutters, underfloor heating in the kitchen and dog bedroom in the snug, the owner has really thought about their guests, be they two or four pawed. Gather round the glowing wood burner in the cosy lounge to reminisce with a glass of wine and plan tomorrow’s adventures. Prepare scrumptious feasts from fine local fare in the kitchen/diner, with its marble-topped table and Rangemaster oven. Unwind in the snug, with its own en-suite shower/WC and access to both front and rear gardens. Soak in a steaming tub in the blissful bathroom, before finding your bedroom for a dreamy island sleep; the ground-floor single and first-floor double, king-size and four-poster master each have their unique charms. Savour sweet al fresco sunset soirees in the front or rear garden, planted with love.

 

Learn to sail, canoe and jet ski at the water sports zone at Welcome Beach in Shanklin (4.5 miles), unwind in the family resort of Sandown (6 miles), and explore secluded Binnel Bay (8 miles) and fossil-rich Brightstone Bay (10.5 miles).

We have just reluctantly returned from a fantastic week at Haviland Cottage. The location is perfect both picturesque and secluded. The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped and the hot tub is just the icing on the cake. The gardens are very well kept and peaceful. Can't wait to return next year.

What a fabulous week we had at Haviland Cottage, it is lovely, they have thought of everything. Although the weather was mixed there are plenty of games for children and adults.
