Close to two charming seaside resorts, his lovely rural cottage offers delightful views and nestles in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just a few minutes’ walk from the glorious coastal path.
Luccombe Cottage is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The small hamlet of Luccombe is nestled in rolling countryside between the seaside resorts of Ventnor and Shanklin - both less than a four-minute drive away. Shanklin is renowned for its sandy beach which gently slopes into the water - ideal for paddling and swimming. Ventnor benefits from a variety of restaurants with fresh fish available from the harbour and a secluded beach. The cottage is also in a beautiful walking area with direct access to paths leading towards the downs and the coastal path is within five minutes walk.

It is centrally heated and is furnished to provide attractive and comfortable accommodation in a peaceful setting. On the ground floor the accommodation is largely open plan giving the cottage a light and spacious feel. There is a sitting room with a sofa, arm chairs and flat screen television with DVD player, with bi-fold doors opening directly into the conservatory so that in warmer weather the rooms seamlessly merge to provide one space in which to relax. French doors open from the conservatory onto the front terrace with open rural views.
