Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Lovely 17th century stone cottage in the hamlet of Southford. The cottage stands between Stenbury Down and Niton down and several picturesque walks begin from the farm just behind the cottage.
The Undercliff, Woody Bay, Ventnor, Steephill Cove and St Lawrence are all within 10 minutes drive or 45 minutes walk for the more adventurous!
The Dairy has two double bedrooms, a modern fitted bathroom and a fitted kitchen. Laminate flooring throughout the downstairs and carpet upstairs.
This cottage is also often a home to us, and is therefore well stocked with books, DVDs, videos and essentials in the kitchen.
We are keen collectors of vintage crockery and furniture. There is an original old radiogram in the living room alongside a pretty art deco sofa. The front bedroom contains a beautiful old washstand and bureaux and the back bedroom contains a vintage dressing table.
Overall this gives the cottage a completely unique character.
We have recently restored the fireplace in the living room so you can cosy up to a log fire in the colder months.

The Isle of Wight region

Whitwell, Isle of Wight
Whitwell is a pretty village approximately 5km North West of Ventnor.
It is full of old stone and thatched cottages and its name comes from 'White Well' a place of pilgrimage during mediaeval times. The well can be found down a track opposite the church.
The White Horse, our local pub, claims to be the oldest on the Island with some of its walls dating back to the 15th century.
Up the road in picturesque Godshill, the Michelin rated Taverners serves fantastic local food and for something special, the Michelin starred Hamborough Hotel in Ventnor is wonderful.
