Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming detached stone cottage makes a wonderful holiday home, beautifully situated overlooking the sea on the southern tip of the island.

This charming detached stone cottage is beautifully situated overlooking the sea on the southern tip of the Island, within a five-minute walk of St Catherine's Lighthouse. It is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in a peaceful hamlet. This is a fantastic walking area with the coastal path heading westwards along a dramatic and unspoilt area of coastline all the way to the Needles. Alternatively, visitors may enjoy downland walks or following the course of the River Yar from Niton to Bembridge. The seaside resort of Ventnor is within a ten-minute drive and there is easy access to a number of sandy bays on the west side of the island. The renowned Buddle Inn is within a few minutes walk of the cottage and a ten-minute stroll brings you to the main village of Niton where there is a general store, post office and another public house.

St Catherine's Cottage has been in the same family for three generations and enjoys an exceptional position with views across the picturesque garden to the sea. There are sea views from several of the rooms including the sitting room, dining room and two main bedrooms. It is an idyllic location in which to relax watching the sailing boats pass by, and sensational for such events as the Round the Island Race in June. The cottage has been furnished and equipped with care and provides charming accommodation for six people in three bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a fitted kitchen equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available in a separate utility area. There is an attractive sitting room with a comfortable sofa and chairs, television/DVD/Freesat plus a pleasant separate dining room.

Stairs lead up to three bedrooms; a spacious double room with a king-size bed and sea views, a double/twin room with a 6 ft zip and link bed which also enjoys sea views, plus a twin room. There is a bathroom with a bath with hand held shower attachment, basin and W.C. and a separate shower room with a built in shower, basin and W.C. The cottage is warmed with wall mounted electric radiators. Heating and electricity is provided at no extra charge. A travel cot and high chair can be made available. Wifi internet connection is also available.

The cottage has a secluded, peaceful garden which is south facing. There is a patio area immediately outside the cottage with garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. The garden has areas of lawn, well established shrubberies and at the far end there is a seating area with views across the fields to the sea, with the wonderful aspect of St Catherine's lighthouse to one side. Cars can be parked in the quiet road outside of the property. Twelve steps lead down to the cottage entrance. A bus service is within a ten-minute walk.

St Catherines cottage is one of the most wonderful places to be. The house itself is warm and cosy and the view is outstanding. It has a very long steep garden which can be difficult if you are infirm but It is well worth the trip to the bench at the bottom if you can. Can't wait to go there again.
