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.

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.

St Catherine's is in a beautiful location with stunning views and a lovely garden and despite the wet weather we experienced we still enjoyed some great walks from the house - and of course a drink by the fire in the pub a few metres away! A thriving village with a handy shop - and post office that doubled up as a bar in the evening! Very comfy bedRead mores and well equipped, although not a luxury feel as some of the decor did feel a little dated. I would be happy to stay there again. Hide

A comfortable cottage in a wonderful setting. The village shop in Niton is very well stocked. No need to travel to big supermarkets.

St Catherine's Cottage is in a perfect location for us to visit all of the island. The cottage is so spacious and has a fantastic garden with just a short walk down to the beach front caf and little fishing harbour. We have been visiting this island for years and this was one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
