Thatched holiday cottages and accommodation on the Isle of Wight
A number of towns on the Isle of Wight are famous for their charming thatched cottages. The historic villages of Godshill, Brighstone, Shorwell and Shanklin Old Town are the perfect place to stay if you are looking for somewhere with original character – with lovely traditional thatched roofs, you really feel that you have taken a step back in time.
There is nothing more romantic than a traditional cottage with a thatched roof, often with exposed beams and stone inside, and typically surrounded with summer flowers and pretty gardens. As they are generally situated in pretty villages overlooking gorgeous greens and duck ponds, they make perfect little love nests, far away from the crowds.
