Comfortable single-storey property set in impressively large gardens and offering spacious accommodation for two guests, situated in the village of Whitwell on the south coast of the Isle of Wight.

This property enjoys a quiet village location in the village of Whitwell, just two miles from the Isle of Wight’s beautiful south coast with its abundance of beaches and warm microclimate. The village itself is home to a family-run pub which is located a ten-minute walk from the property, whilst just three miles down the road in Ventnor there is a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, and cafes to choose from, many of which can be found on the town’s esplanade. The beach at Ventnor has a fantastic sandy beach, whilst the neighbouring beach at Steephill Cove can only be accessed by foot, and offers a quiet secluded beach with a seafront restaurant and even a resident donkey.

There is one shallow step which leads up to the front door of this detached single-storey cottage, and directly into the open-plan lounge/diner. This comfortable room has a choice of seating from which to enjoy the TV/DVD at the end of a busy day, whilst the dining table sits between the lounge area and the doorway which leads through to the kitchen. This well-equipped room has everything that guests will need to prepare all their favourite dishes including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom meanwhile is a peaceful double room which benefits from its own TV making it perfect for enjoying some late-night television. The bathroom offers not only a bath, but also a separate shower cubicle and WC.

Patio doors from the lounge lead directly out to the wonderfully spacious garden, where guests will find a relaxing patio area complete with chairs and sun loungers, overlooking the generously-sized lawns which are bordered by mature shrubs and fruit trees. It is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels and a variety of birds often seen, aswell as clear and twinkly night skies if the weather is right. There is off-road parking for one car.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
