Further details indoors

The living room is cosy with an open fire. The kitchen diner is fully equipped, most of the white goods were installed last year. For long winter lets we could arrange to have the oil-fired range lit. Bedroom one is a spacious double on the ground floor with sea views. The family bathroom is on the ground floor and there is an additional toilet. Bedroom two (twin beds) has sea views, while bedroom three (also twin) is enchanting with it's own staircase and exposed beams. The cottage has been our family's holiday home for over 60 years, but is newly decorated, refurnished and rewired.

Further details outdoors

Large garden mostly laid to grass. Please note that the garden is unfenced so small children need watching. Parking at the side of the property - room for two cars.

Further details

Pets considered -we have a cat flap. There are a lot of sheep on the farm including the field next door so only very well behaved dogs.

While bedroom one and the bathroom are downstairs, there are two interior steps - one to the kitchen/diner and one to the living room, so it is not really suitable for wheelchairs.

The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight offers a plethora of activities. Visit Carisbrooke Castle, where Charles I was imprisoned and donkeys still work the well wheel, and Osborne House where Victoria spent her summers.. Black Chine, Alum Bay and Robin Hill appeal to younger visitors, and also have firework shows throughout the season. while Cowes week and other regattas draw sailing enthusiasts from around the world. Every week in summer there are carnivals, fairs and shows to seek out, including the famous Garlic Fair, the Steam Railway Extravaganza and the County Show. For a gentler pace, many beautiful gardens hold open days or just wander round the enchanting villages.

Brook, Isle of Wight

Brook is a quiet village - the Sun at Hulverstone is the nearest pub (a 20 minute walk)

Brook beach and Compton beach - both a short walk over the fields - are among the most spectacular on the Island. Windsurfing, kite surfing and kayaking are popular activities, and at low tide you can walk on the fossiled forest and search for the famous dinosaur footprints - join one of the organised walks to be sure of finding them!

The lane outside the cottage is classified as a footpath -part of the Hampsted way., excellent for walkers. Climb the Down to Five Barrows and a walk to Freshwater Bay or Mottistone Long Stone.

There are excellent farm-shops in the area - and Dunsbury farm sells it's own lamb. Supermarkets and a swimming pool can be found in Freshwater.

"Lovely spot & house but could have been better maintained"

We enjoyed our stay at Mary's Cottage. There was lots of space and the rooms were spacious and the location was lovely with brilliant views and peaceful. Unfortunately there were points that le… More

Thank you for you review and for the many positive things you said about the cottage overall. I am so sorry you were let down by maintenance issues. Unfortunately I live on the mainland and ill health has prevented me from getting down to the cottage at all this year. I rely on my trusty team of gardener, housekeeper and handyman to ensure things are running smoothly. The stain on the ceiling has been painted now, the grass mown and I am sure future guests will have no cause for complaint.
