Whistlestop cottage at Whitwell Railway Station which is set in two acres of land and overlooks beautiful views of English hedgerows, rolling hills around the Village of Whitwell. The Ventnor West line originally opened in 1897 and was said to be 'one of the prettiest branch lines in England' with many local inhabitants lovingly talking of childhood memories of a treasured line. The trains and bustle are long gone, but when sitting on the platform you can almost hear the rattle of a train, and recall the bygone days of steam.

Whistle Stop Cottage sits in its own picket fence grounds. The lounge looks opens onto a patio and garden with a retired railway wagon at the settled at the far end.

The master bedroom is south facing sporting a balcony providing excellent views of the Vineyard and village.

The cottage is of a high standard with 4 Star AA rating.

"An excellent holiday stay"

First time me and my husband have ever been to the Isle of White and totally fell in love with the place. We loved it so much even thinking of moving there within few years. Whitwell Station was a lovely accommodation and would highly recommenced staying here. We will defo be returning back at some stage. Mr Carter was so helpful and friendly and made the stay feel more comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
