The Cottage has been sympathetically restored to retain historical features without compromising on comfort.

The building is of unusual and distinct structure with hexagonal front elevations. The living room and double bedroom are particulary light rooms with double aspects.

The front windows are prettily framed in small hexagonals which complement the overall structure. The back windows are original casement windows with stained glass panels.

Most of the fireplace are original and there are gas-lights in all the downstairs rooms although sadly they are no longer working. In the living room there is an attractive mantlepiece made from local marble which contains many fossils such as ammonites.

The accommodation consists of :

Sitting Room - TV, DVD, HiFi, Books and Games

Dining Room - Table and Chairs

Kitchen - Shaker Style Units, Washing Machine, Dishwasher

Bathroom - White Victorian Style Suite

Double Bedroom - Wardrobe, Chest of Drawers, Iron Bedstead, White Linen

The Isle Of Wight

The Isle of Wight offers the opportunity of many outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, and golf.

The Island is one of the richest wildlife counties in Britain. It has a large colony of red squirrels which although rare on the mainland are regularly seen on the island.

The island has 13 award winning beaches. Some of these provide the best places for finding dinosaur fossils in Europe.

For a different guide to eating out on the Isle Of Wight see Mat and Cat's website.
