This terraced holiday cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation and an opportunity to experience the best combination of being close to the waterfront as well as open countryside, with lovely views, birds and wildlife. Located in the popular island harbour of Newport, the house sits close to the water’s edge and marina, with views across the River Medina and has nearby large communal gardens with a children’s play area, restaurant and bar. You are able to take advantage of this unique location with a 12 metre mooring available to rent (at cost, on request). The Needles, with chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay are a short distance away. Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK is nearby, and island attractions include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle, the donkey sanctuary and Calbourne Water Mill, which has a 17th-century working watermill. Osborne House and Gardens (Queen Victoria’s holiday residence), Carisbrooke Castle and the sailing town of Yarmouth are worthy of a visit. Cowes in the north west of the island is renowned for its sailing. Also within easy reach are vineyards and quaint villages, some with thatched roofs such as Godshill, Old Shanklin and Brighstone. Outdoor pursuits include scenic walking, riding, fishing, cycling, water sports and golf. The island can be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points.
