Delightful Grade II listed cottage dating from the 15th century, offering attractive period-style accommodation for three guests, located in the quiet hamlet of St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight’s south coast.
This pretty stone cottage is attractively situated in a quiet lane in the coastal hamlet of St Lawrence, on the South East coast of the Island. There are several idyllic coves nearby - Steephill Cove is perhaps the favourite. The beach and coastal resort of Ventnor is within a five-minute drive. Here, swimming, paddling, fishing and a variety of entertainments can be enjoyed. There are a number of shops, public houses and great places to eat including a Michelin Star restaurant. The larger beaches of Shanklin and Sandown are within a 10 to 15 minute drive, and there is also easy access to the south west side of the island - another area of dramatic coastline and also a wonderful walking area. The rocky beach of Woody Bay is within an eight-minute walk of the cottage.
