Ideally situated on the temperate south coast, this lovely Victorian-style villa is surrounded by a large, secluded garden and far-reaching sea views.

Woodington is a Victorian Villa with open sea views from upper rooms, surrounded by an extensive, secluded garden. It is one of a small number of individual detached properties in the peaceful coastal area of Niton Undercliff, with little passing traffic. This southerly part of the Isle of Wight is renowned for its mild temperate climate. The sea at Woody Bay is a 20-minute walk away and there are other picturesque bays at Niton. The larger sandy beaches of Ventnor and Shanklin are within a 15 to 20 minute drive. There is a charming 16th century public house at Niton Undercliff - a 30-minute walk. Niton is the nearest village, with a second public house, general stores, pharmacy and library. Visitors can walk westwards to the village of Niton and join a beautiful section of coastal path leading to Freshwater, and on to The Needles on the western tip of the Isle of Wight. Alternatively, visitors can walk eastwards to Ventnor Botanical Garden and the beach at Steephill Cove.

Woodington is a grand, detached south facing house offering attractive accommodation for ten or more people in five bedrooms. It has been renovated and equipped with care to keep the character of the property with Victorian fireplaces, original windows and charming doors being retained. On the ground floor there is a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an American style fridge freezer, an electric cooker and gas hob with five burners, a microwave and dishwasher; a spacious dining room where meals can be enjoyed by the whole family; a cosy sitting room with sofas and a flat screen television with freeview and DVD player; a larger sitting room with two sofas, an armchair and television with DVD player; a second dining area which can double as a games area with a one-armed bandit and a variety of games; a shower room with built in shower, basin and WC. A washing machine and tumble dryer are also provided.

Stairs lead up to five spacious bedrooms. There are two south facing double bedrooms with sea views; a further west facing double bedroom with sea views and a fourth double room with garden views, plus a twin room with sea glimpses. (Two extra mattresses can be provided to enable two children to sleep separately or for additional guests to be accommodated). There is a bathroom with a deep freestanding bath and basin, plus a separate WC. Central heating and electricity are provided without extra charge. A travel cot and high chair can be provided plus two extra mattresses. Wifi internet is available. (We regret it is not possible to use the fire places or wood burning stoves).

The house has a large, sunny garden with a variety of areas where visitors can relax. Garden furniture and a barbecue are provided so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. There is an extensive lawn at the rear where games can be played and also a hot tub can be made available. In addition, in the central garage you will find a games room with table tennis, mini snooker and table top hockey. Parking is available for five cars in the drive. Storage space is available for bikes and outside equipment. Visitors should be aware that you can walk or cycle eastwards into St. Lawrence and Ventor, but the undercliff is now a no-through road so to travel eastwards, the road needs to be followed via Niton to Whitwell and onwards to Ventnor, Shanklin and Sandown. The fact that the undercliff is a no-through road has resulted in it being wonderfully peaceful.

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

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

This was great for a large family holiday. Games room not attached to house so no noise level to affect the quieter members of the group. Beds comfy, spacious inside house. Fine for wet days. This is situated in a very quiet area, quite a long walk to get to a shop or pub.

The overall cleanliness of kitchen,toilets and bathrooms could have been a lot better and the outside areas needed a bit of a tidy up.

We loved this house as it felt homely, like going to stay at a friends house. It is ideal for a family gathering. We went as a group of 5 adults and 5 very young children/babies. Three generations.

Great trip, house had everything you could wish for. However, clearer instructions on how to find it would be great, 3 parties arrived separately all having the same issues. Got there in the end. Amazing place, amazing views. Love the man cave......

Amazing location and amazing price! All in all a lovely holiday home. Stayed with 8 adults and 3 small children and there was plenty of space for everyone.

It is a lovely house, and accommodated 11 of us very comfortably! Great games shed for the kids! It does feel a bit isolated as the road is permentanly closed..but we quite liked that!

Lovely house, super location. We all had a fabulous and relaxing NYE visit for the week. The kids loved the games room and garden to explore. The house is very spacious, well kitted out (even had head torches for the dark roads!) and very homely. We wil definately return, thanks for a great stay!

If you are looking for a quiet place to escape and relax the location is perfect, the scenery is stunning and the house has plenty of space for a big group, the general areas and bedding was lovely and clean but some of the decorative items and kitchen areas were grubby and dusty which was a shame as it let the house down a little...that said wouldRead more happily recommend.

The cottage was very dirty - including the toilet.
