From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This Grade II listed property, with beautiful gardens, is the perfect property for groups to enjoy the Isle of Wight.

This beautifully appointed and elegant house forms part of Apse Manor, a Grade II listed building dating from the late 16th or early 17th century, with this wing being added in the late 18th or 19th century. Apsewood Cottage is located in a peaceful hamlet in a semi-rural location, nestled between woodland, farmland and the Ventnor Downs. Guests can enjoy a large garden which offers a stunning combination of a south-east facing terrace, rolling lawns, tended mature flower beds and planting, as well as beautiful natural planting and woodland surrounding it. There is open access to a small stream, waterfall and pond, with footbridge, at the bottom of the garden. The holiday property offers a perfect base for walkers and cyclists who want to explore the coastal paths, National Trust land and the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby Shanklin, known for its sandy beach and clear waters, has a pretty Old Village with thatched cottages, tea rooms and restaurants. The Needles, with its chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay, is worthy of a visit. Carisbrooke Castle and Osborne House and Gardens are a short drive away. Blackgang Chine and island attractions such as Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle and a donkey sanctuary are all easily accessible. Beach 2½ miles. Shop and pub 1½ miles.
