Property code: 82973

A lovely pet friendly family holiday home, situated on the southern side of the Island, ideally located to explore the wonderful selection of attractions on offer nearby.

Escape to the southern reaches of the beautiful Isle of Wight and stay in this idyllic village location, enjoying a holiday characterised by long strolls through the countryside and delicious meals crafted with only the finest local ingredients. This cottage is full to the brim with home comforts, so you and your party of four will be able to relax by the wood burner and enjoy cooking in the traditionally styled kitchen. You’ll also be within easy reach of the coast for long days on the beach and bracing cliff top walks.

Attached to the owner’s home yet ensuring privacy, your delightful accommodation will envelop you in a sense of warmth from the moment you step through the threshold into the dining room. With beamed ceilings, wooden floors and large doors allowing natural light to flow through, this room is a sanctuary for mealtimes. Snuggle up on the lounge sofas and light the wood burner on chilly evenings, awaiting a meal prepared with love in the generous kitchen. Steep carpeted stairs lead up to the bedrooms, both of which are elegantly finished complete with en-suites, useful storage and comfortable beds. Outside is a small courtyard garden and a shared driveway with parking for two cars.

Lace up your walking boots and breathe in the crisp country air as you head to the pretty village of Godshill 1.5 miles away for a stroll around the church and a treat in the tearoom. Walking and cycling is a sheer delight throughout the wild and windswept landscape, yet a 3-mile drive will bring you to the Victorian seaside town of Ventnor with its array of eateries and endless coastal charm. Play on the beach and wander along the promenade, rounding off your adventures with a slap-up meal at the popular beach pub.

We had a great week in this well appointed cottage. We are currently exploring many areas of Britain that we have yet to see, but, if we were to come back to the Isle of Wight, our first port of call would be to see if this property was available.

We had a lovely time at the cottage. The cottage was very comfortable, with well-equipped kitchen. Carla was a great hostess, responding to a couple of requests immediately. The scones and milk were great, little touches that made a huge difference when we arrived! The location was perfect and serene. Overall, a great holiday!

This is a very comfortable cottage, perfect for a winter break. The log fire was excellent, and the cottage was very spacious and well situated on the island to reach most places easily.

Very well situated in lovely countryside. Peaceful, light, comfortable, loads of hot water, decent heating and so on.

The drive is shared so be aware of that before booking, also their is wooden floors and no secure garden so not ideal for our large dog. But its a lovely location, lovely cottage and very comfortable.

The cottage is situated in beautiful peaceful countryside and provides a good base for venturing in all directions.

A perfect cottage, central to some beautiful walks and lots to see and do in the local vicinity. Godshill nearby and with walking distance is a little gem with some fantastic places to eat. The Cottage is clean and all areas are very thoughtfully provided for - it was great to have two bathrooms too - a real luxury. Beds were comfy and linen fresh.Read more Great views out of bedroom windows. Rhoda is also central for easy access to the rest of the island. Owner quick to respond when wifi wouldn't work. Hide
