Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this well-placed cottage is ideal for relaxed holidays spent touring the many local attractions including The Needles, Blackgang Chine and Alum Bay.

Surrounded by rolling countryside and peaceful tranquillity, this property offers the most homely of welcomes. Families and two dogs can enjoy the large enclosed garden, spectacular views and wonderful walks from the doorstep. Nearby, there's a family and hound-friendly village pub with a children's menu, and a well-stocked village shop (both 1.5 miles). At the front of the property, you'll also find parking for three cars.

A set of stone steps with a handrail leads up to the property entrance and its spacious interiors. The bright open-plan kitchen, utility, and dining area look out across the garden, and there's a handy shower room, plus bunk bedroom with TV downstairs. Plan cosy nights in by the wood burner in the lounge where there's a games console, TV, and DVD. Stairs lead upstairs from the lounge to two further bedrooms, plus a family bathroom with a WC. With the cottage being so characterful, there are some quirky features, including level changes and slanted ceilings so your four-legged friend will need to save his lofty enthusiasm for the garden, accessible from the dining room area.

The popular Shepherds Trail is a short stroll from your doorstep, a 7-mile family-friendly walking route which runs from historic Carisbrooke Castle with its Elizabethan fortress, Norman keep and friendly donkeys (6 miles) to coastal Shepherd's Chine with its dog-friendly beach (4 miles). For scrumptious tearoom treats and pretty thatched cottage views, visit Brighstone (3.5 miles), or explore history at Calbourne Water Mill and Rural Museum (7 miles), while further afield, you can discover Queen Victoria's holiday home, Osborne House (13.5 miles), full of coastal garden inspiration and a fascinating insight into the daily life of the Victorian royal family.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Gorgeous little cottage in a great location for travelling round the island. Brilliant garden for the kids to run around in. Unfortunately the cottage lacks any comfortable seating and had a very strong smell of dog in the master bedroom.

We loved it here its super rural. Too far to walk to the beach for a lot of people, at least 2 miles. But a great location for the whole island, its easy to go literally everywhere! The cottage is perfect for dogs, enclosed garden and field walks every evening if they have any energy left. Property is done to a high level, we found everything we neRead moreeded, downstairs shower is the only weak link. I would absolutely recommend it but did feel its quite expensive. Hide

The cottage was in a lovely setting, very peaceful and was furnished with everything you could need whilst on holiday. The beds were all very comfortable, with nice linen. Some nice touches too, like some milk left for us when we arrived and hand soap. Its a very comfortable place to relax with plenty of room and easy to get to most places on the iRead moresland. Hide

Rose Cottage was ideal for our retriever with a large flat enclosed garden for him to run in and walks from the doorstep. The cottage is nicely proportioned with a large kitchen & dining area and comfortable lounge. The bedrooms are also spacious and very comfortable. Everything was in very nice condition and we had a very enjoyable stay.
