Apse Manor Forge Pond and Garden 2017

There is a new photo of Apse Manor Forge showing the front courtyard, the hanging baskets and the fish pond. Apse Manor Forge also has a beautiful garden to the rear of the cottage with lawns and beds of lavender but this front courtyard is the view we see when we first arrive at the cottage as part of a holiday on the Isle of Wight.

The grounds and gardens of Apse Manor Forge Cottage are lovingly tended to and are a beautiful place to relax as part of a self catering holiday on the East of the Isle of Wight. Although the cottage is within a short walk or cycle ride of the beach at Shanklin, this rural location is peaceful and calming and seems miles away from the bustle of normal life.

Yaverland and Wildlife Holiday Photos

Sam has sent us some wonderful photographs of their holiday on the Isle of Wight and the wildlife they spotted. The beach shots were photographed at Yaverland which is the beach at the North end of the bay which also holds Sandown and Shanklin. This quiet beach is a beautiful place to walk and take in the morning sunrise but is also popular with kite surfers and kayakers so there is plenty of action on the water if the natural scenery of the towing cliffs ever gets boring.

The wildlife and fox cubs were photographed at Alum Bay on the far West of the Isle of Wight. Alum Bay adjoins The Needles and is the place where small ferry boat rides take visitors to see the impressive natural rock formations.
