Located in idyllic surroundings on the outskirts of a picturesque hamlet, and close to the sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin, this lovely property enjoys beautiful views across open countryside.
Meadow End is situated in beautiful East Wight countryside on the outskirts of the attractive hamlet of Alverstone and within an easy ten-minute drive of the sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin. The property enjoys panoramic views across open countryside towards Culver Cliffs, and the sea can be glimpsed in the distance. This is a wonderful walking area and visitors can stroll directly from the cottage to access a network of footpaths leading to the downs, riverside walks and the sea. There is also a pleasant walk into the nearby village of Newchurch which has a great public house for meals. Visitors are within a few minutes ride of a cycle path which connects with the centre of the Island and the coast. In the surrounding garden and fields of the cottage visitors can enjoy seeing a wide range of birds, plus red squirrels, badgers and foxes. A bird hide is within a ten-minute walk.
This is a spacious self-contained wing of a magnificent cottage built in 2009. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard and provides attractive and comfortable accommodation for a couple or family in two bedrooms. The open-plan design gives a remarkable feeling of light and space. On the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen equipped to the highest standards offering units with a granite style top, a large range style cooker, microwave, dishwasher and an American style fridge freezer. (A washing machine is provided in a separate utility area). There is an adjoining dining area with French doors opening into the garden. Stairs lead up to a pleasant sitting room with a sofa and chairs, plus a television with Sky Q and a DVD player. French doors open from here onto a balcony with open views across the fields to Culver Cliffs. This is wonderful spot to enjoy a morning coffee or an aperitif in the evening.
To access the bedrooms, three stairs lead from the dining area to two bedrooms; a spacious double room with a double bed, large windows and an en-suite bathroom equipped with a bath, overhead shower, basin and W.W. plus an attractive twin room.
