This delightful holiday cottage has extensive, direct sea views. The front garden terrace looks directly out to sea, and the splendid sea views can also be seen from the living room and double bedroom. Bonchurch beach is a short but steep walk from the property, and the cottage is ideally situated for visiting the town of Ventnor, with its good selection of individual shops, restaurants, bars and tea shops and the beautiful beach approximately 1 mile away. The cottage offers a great base for exploring all the attractions the island has to offer and backs onto National Trust land. Blackgang Chine is nearby, the oldest themed attraction in the UK. Within easy reach are the Needles, with chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Attractions include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Bonchurch beach, Pearl Centre, Dinosaur Museum, Donkey Sanctuary and Calbourne Water Mill which has a 17th-century working watermill. Slightly further afield, 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. Popular sandy beaches such as Compton and Steephill Cove are a short drive away. 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. Beach 1 mile. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant ¼ mile.
