|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This lovely, bright and airy, semi-detached holiday cottage, with lovely sea views from many of the rooms, nestles just moments away from the coastal path and is set adjacent to the owner’s home, in the peace and tranquillity of this southern part of the island, with its own micro-climate of good weather. Guests have further access to tiered terraces and sitting-out areas with far reaching sea views, by arrangement with the owner. Although a super bolthole away from any hustle and bustle, this property is a 5-minute drive from the cosmopolitan town of Ventnor, with its popular shingle and sandy beach, where freshly caught fish of the day can be purchased at the marina. Blackgang Chine is nearby, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, and also within easy reach are the Needles and Alum Bay. Other attractions include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle, a donkey sanctuary and Calbourne Water Mill, which has a 17th-century working watermill. Osborne House and Gardens (Queen Victoria’s holiday residence), and Carisbrooke Castle are a short distance away. The sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes, and the popular resorts and Shanklin and Sandown are nearby. The island can be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points. Beach 300 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
