Direct access to public foot and cycle paths leading to the highest points and best views on the island. Maps provided will help guide you along the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, miles of sandy beaches and nearby local gourmet pubs.
The outdoor undercover seating and BBQ area (inc starter charcoal) has a worktop and sink. We provide basic cupboard essentials, tea, coffee etc. In the kitchen. A welcome pack of fresh bread (please request), jam, milk, butter, bottled water and treats are provided and extras can be ordered ready for your arrival!
The double wall bed will have all the bed linen required for your arrival and can be left down with access and cupboards both sides, rather than scrabble over your partner!
Indoors there's a two seater sofa looking out over the valley towards Whitwell Village and the White Horse Inn, the oldest public house in the country. The bed can be left down or folded up to reveal extra seating and table too for cosy days indoors in front of the FreeSat TV and log burner with complimentary logs throughout your holiday.
Enjoy the abundant foot and cycle paths, book an onsite massage or reflexology treatment, go horse riding on the beach... There's so much to see and do, we have a few suggestions online and feel free to ask for any help. Discounted ferry crossings available too!
