The Beach Retreat - Gold Award
About the home
With spectacular views across the Solent channel, as you watch the boats go by you will know you are in Seaview! New on the market, this delightful, cute, property looks on the inside as though it has stepped out of Coast magazine! With white tongue and groove walls, ship deck style flooring it is pretty and charming. Ideal for self-catering as it has a lovely new kitchen with cooker and microwave and the Seaview village grocers and newsagent are only a few minutes stroll along the waterfront. There are 2 bedrooms - a double bedroom and twin room all on the ground floor. There is a sitting room, dining area and also a breakfast bar, a TV with Freeview and DVD. Sitting or dining on the private outside deck you may not want to go far but restaurants/cafes such as The Boathouse, The Old Fort Cafe and The Seaview Hotel are a few minutes stroll away for an evening out. A parking space for one car is available in the car park behind the property.
The property awarded in 2013 a Visit Britain Gold Award. This award reflects a very high level of quality. Properties achieving the Gold Award have exceptional levels of quality, comfort and cleanliness in bedrooms and bathrooms, and outstanding levels of customer care.

Lydia said in 2012-
"We had a wonderful week at The Beach Retreat. We were lucky enough to be there for the Seaview Regatta which was wonderful. We were blessed with warm weather and we loved swimming in the sea right outside. The cottage was very comfortable and just what we needed"

The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is just across the English Channel from the UK south coast, separated from the mainland by a strait called the Solent channel. There are many holiday destinations on the island that have been popular since Victorian times.
Exploring is easy as the lanes are pretty quiet and the countryside is largely unspoiled - nearly half of the island is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cycle hire is available in many places - Wight Cycle Hire will deliver bikes. Cowes is famous as a yachting centre and world renowned for Cowes Week.
There are many award-winning beaches, with three of them being Blue Flag winners. Many beaches are close to excellent dining places - cafés, pubs and restaurants.
Some interesting places to visit include The Adgestone Vineyard, Bembridge for lunch at the Crab and Lobster, Yarmouth for shops and lunch at Fishies. The Isle of Wight is a food lover’s paradise. The island boasts wonderful sea food, farm grown garlic, Minghella’s ice cream right through to superb wines from the local vineyards. I just keep finding more on every visit and will keep updating this page for you with my latest discovery! - My latest find is the gorgeous creamy cheese 'Isle of Wight soft' for sale at the Seaview village grocery.
There are several farm shops strewn across the island - Godshill Organic Farm shop, Farmer Jacks at Arreton Barns, Horringford Gardens Farm shop, Briddlesford Farm shop , etc to serve the best produce from the island.
More information to follow as I do some more exploring....
New find the is the gorgeous, hidden gem, Steephill Cove (next to Ventnor Cricket Ground) with 3 lovely cafes selling fresh crab pasties and other delights. Also if your are heading to Bembridge Beach pop in the new Beach Hut Cafe and say hello to Emma the owner.
The Seaview Village area
The beach is a great place for swimming, crabbing and shrimping as it is full of rockpools.
Seaview is a small, delightful village of unspoilt charm on the east coast of the Isle of Wight.
The village consists largely of Victorian and Edwardian houses and cottages and is a favourite holiday place for families, couples and yachtsmen alike, who can't get enough of the old-fashioned pace of life and atmosphere in Seaview. Seaview is a great base from where you can explore the many coastal and countryside walks. People come to Seaview for holidays and weekend breaks year after year, and generation after generation.
The picturesque High Street is home to some pleasant shops - the village greengrocer/bakery (croissants, rockcakes etc. baked on site), newsagent/post office, sailing gear, clothes, art and seaside home bits and pieces. The famous Seaview Hotel leads straight down to the Old Fort cafe/bar and the Seaview Yacht club overlooking the sea. There are beaches for swimming, and rock pools to give children and older seaside lovers hours of fun, as well as a promenade walk. You can walk along the seafront to Ryde in under one hour. The Sailing Club hosts yacht races most weekends and evenings in the summer and it has its own own regatta in August.
The Isle of Wight and Seaview enjoy some of the best weather in the UK and it is popular with families, sailors, couples and those seeking a restful out-of-season break.
Here's a quote from Debby who used to visit Seaview as a child and is returning this year to stay at The Beach Retreat and show the delights to her partner.....her favourite childhood things included
"Walking along the Duver with my granny, going to Puckpool, playing cricket with my cousins at the top of Nettlestone and being allowed to go down to the beach on my own...."

Small and perfectly formed accomodation, would be ideal for couples wanting to escape and also for children. Equipped with everything you could need.
The location is second to none, allowing instant access to the beach. Easy to find and a great base for exploring a lovely island.
We would highly recommend the Beach Retreat as a perfect holiday base.
