Lovely bungalow, well equipped and set on the quiet and picturesque west side of the Island. Great walks available from the front door and excellent beaches just down the road. Clean and well presented throughout. The separate cloakroom is real bonus for a family of four.

This is a beautiful bungalow, in a superb spot, with views of the downs. Very spacious. We have a large German Shepherd and some cottages can seem small, but not a problem here. Some wonderful walks in the area, and a very well-stocked and friendly village shop. We liked it so much we have already booked to go again next year.

The drive is on a slope and there are 8ish steps to get into the bungalow both front and rear entrance. The shower entrance is not very wide! So if you have some mobility issues sadly it's not the place for you otherwise it's fine. Garden enclosed enough for dogs. Lovely and warm. Fabulous walks.
