This stylish and well-equipped character cottage is set in a peaceful hamlet, perfect for family walks through stunning countryside, playing in the garden or simply relaxing beside the open fire.
What could be finer than an Isle of Wight getaway to this charming country cottage, half a mile from the village of Wroxall and 3 miles north of Ventnor. With a network of wonderful walking and cycling routes all around, and sublime beaches at Ventnor Bay (3 miles), Monks Bay and Steephill Cove (both 3.5 miles), as well as Orchard Bay and Mount Bay (both 4 miles), you’re spoilt for wild green adventures and exhilarating seaside excursions. Ventnor is one of England’s sunniest spots, with terraces zig-zagging down to the sea, a Heritage Museum, exotic gardens, art exhibitions and festivals and superb independent shops, pubs and eateries serving mouthwatering local seafood. Inside this delightful detached stone cottage you’ll find a spacious and vibrant interior, overflowing with character, style and bright island style. After sparkling days of sea and sand, sightseeing and shopping, gather with a bottle of red wine around the lounge’s crackling fire. Prepare delicious feasts of fine local fare in the sleek, bright kitchen. Enjoy meals around the long table in the dining room and spill into the spacious garden for BBQs, morning coffee and al fresco sunset suppers. Kids will love the fun-filled play room and garden trampoline, swings and slide. Upstairs, soak weary limbs in a hot slipper tub, before finding your sumptuous king-size and bunk bedrooms, each with their own dreamy island ambience and feature furnishings. Find more exquisite coves at the water sports haven of Welcome Beach in Shanklin (5 miles), the family resort of Sandown (6 miles), pretty but rocky Binnel Bay (7.5 miles) and fossil-rich Brightstone Bay (12 miles). Discover historic and haunted Carisbrooke Castle (10 miles), find tranquillity at the National Trust’s Mottistone Gardens and Elizabethan manor (13.5 miles) and wander the mazy streets of Yarmouth; its 16th-century castle, Grade II listed pier and Sites of Special Scientific Interest are unforgettable.
