Further details

Please note that the cottage is situated in a very secluded location about 1 mile down an unmade uneven farm track. The state of this track varies with the season and amount of farm activity. Nevertheless it is passable by ordinary cars (not low slung sports cars) it just has to be taken slowly (5mph) and with patience. Our VW Golf / Honda Jazz handles it without a problem. There is access either north to the Yarmouth road (A3054) or South to the Calbourne road (B3401).

The England region

Situated just off the South coast within 2 hours of London the Isle of Wight is a perfect location for families and walkers alike. The island is often referred to as a 'Little England' with it's stunning countryside and beautiful beaches, which form the backdrop for it's many and varied attractions. From castles and manor houses to adventure parks and piers. It is renowned as one of the sunniest places in the country.


Upper Watchingwell cottage is located in a rural location approximately 2 miles west of Carisbrooke / Newport. This central location means both West and East of the island are easily accessible. The West is generally quieter and less touristy with attractions like the Newtown nature reserve, Carisbrooke Castle, the Needles park, and Blackgang Chine and quieter beaches such as Compton bay, Colwell bay, and Totland bay. The East is generally more touristy with attractions like Osbourne house, Ryde, and Ventnor, and the blue flag beaches at Sandown, Shanklin, and Ventnor. In addition, there is excellent potential for walkers along the Tennyson way or the Isle of Wight coastal path.
