    Sanctuary Cottage was built in 1904 and adjoins the former Methodist Church. The cottage was the Sunday School for local children. It benefits from period features combined with a contemporary interior and lies in a lovely quiet location just a stone’s throw from breathtaking views across the Solent. It is a perfect base for families as well as cyclists, walkers and lovers of the outdoors. The Needles, with chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay are a short distance away. Visit 17th-century Calbourne Water Mill, Carisbrooke Castle or Osborne House and Gardens. Historic Yarmouth is also worthy of a visit, and the island can be easily explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points across the whole island. Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK is nearby, and island attractions include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle and a donkey sanctuary. The impressive south coast and Tennyson Down, with its many walks are only minutes away. Beach 1/2 mile. Shop 500 yards, pub 1/2 mile.

    Welcome to the House of Logs, a detached Norwegian-built log house in the peaceful setting of Totland Bay. The house provides a comfortable haven for its guests, whilst the garden is a magnet for wildlife, including red squirrels and badgers (appropriate food is provided). There are glimpses of the Solent and the mainland from the terrace at the front of the house and from some of the first floor rooms. This holiday house is built on a sloping site and most of the accommodation is on the first floor. Opposite the house is the coastal path which runs through Headon Warren, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, to Alum Bay and the Needles, and across to Tennyson Down. The nearest beach is Widdick Chine, which is a short walk away, but there are steps! Totland beach is a little further and is a flat walk with a sandy beach, ideal for bathing. Where possible, local or British products have been used to furnish the house. The wrought iron beds are from the Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Company of Norfolk; Welsh wool blankets have been sourced to make cosy additions to bedding. All the mattresses, sofas, dining furniture and kitchen cabinets are made in England. Original works of art adorn many of the walls. As much re-cycling as possible has been employed, but rest assured that everything is smart, clean and works! The House of Logs is unique. Headon Warren includes bronze age burial mounds, quarries, Hatherwood Battery built in the 1860s, along with precious wildlife, such as Dartford warblers, the small copper butterfly and several unusual insects. The views from the Warren across to the mainland are wonderful. The whole area is an idyllic setting for walking enthusiasts. When you reach the end of Headon Warren, Alum Bay can be seen and a spectacular view of the Needles. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Priory Cottage is a period, thatched, stone cottage with an abundance of character and detail, dating from the 19th century and appearing on maps and censuses of the 1830s. Originally owned by Lord Tennyson and featuring in the Tennyson Trail, the cottage adjoins another property and features beautiful decorative tiles above its windows and doors that were made by Lord Tennyson himself when he chose the property to house his beloved nanny. Priory Cottage has other famous connections as Tennyson’s good friend G.F.Watts lived next door, and Montgomery’s map-maker is also known to have lived in the cottage. The property is set in an area with a strong smuggling history, and at the back of the cottage there are drawings of ships scratched into some of the stones – traditionally the sign of a smugglers’ safe house. Being set within an AONB, most of the surrounding land is National Trust and includes the West High Down, The Tennyson Trail and the stunning Heritage coastline. Tennyson monument and Headon Warren with its breathtaking views of The Needles are nearby. Although in a secluded area, amenities in Totland and Freshwater are only a 5-minute drive, offering shops, library, tearooms, indoor swimming pool and pubs, and Alum Bay with its famous coloured sands, is about 30 minutes’ walk over the Downs. The historic sailing town of Yarmouth, set in the estuary of the River Yar, is about 10 minutes’ drive, and Colwell, Totland and the popular sandy beach at Compton are 5 minutes’ drive away. As well as the excellent walks from the house locally, there are also many tourist attractions to discover, including The Needles Park - one of the most popular attractions on the island, with chairlift, boat rides, coloured sands, lighthouse, amusements and glass making. Also within easy driving distance are Blackgang Chine, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, traditional pottery making, Calbourne water mill, various NT homes/gardens, vineyards, museums, wildlife centres, a zoo, pearl centre, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, Cowes/Yarmouth harbours. Outdoor pursuits include golf (nearby Freshwater), cycling, riding, sailing, fishing and diving. Beach 1 mile. Shop 1 mile, pub 500 yards.
