Get close to the great outdoors in this fabulous Grade II listed cottage in a leafy hamlet, 1.5 miles from the seaside town of Shanklin. Expect a comfortable and enjoyable stay for up to nine guests.

A little pocket of paradise, this manor house is surrounded by glorious secluded gardens and offers the perfect spot for a break on the Isle of Wight. Spacious both inside and out, the property has everything you'll need for getting a couple of families together, including an ideal sleepover bedroom for young kids.

With huge windows and high ceilings throughout, light streams into this property and offers remarkable views of the all-encompassing gardens. Decorated with classic British charm in mind, the house is a home-from-home and you'll no doubt settle right in. An open-plan kitchen/diner provides a fabulous family hub, and a large range oven and fridge/freezer will no doubt excite your family's designated chef. Make time in the evening to sit down and enjoy a family meal whilst taking in the glorious garden views from the dining room window. There's plenty of space for all to relax across two lounge areas, both of which offer TV/DVD players. The larger of the two has a wood burner that warms the room throughout. Head up to bed and you'll find four spacious bedrooms. Two king-size rooms are perfect for the mum and dads of the group, a twin is ideal for older kids and a triple bedroom with bunk bed and single cabin bed is made for a gang of excited young ones! Whilst this property is the perfect bolthole all year around, we must admit it does shine in the summer months. The vast private garden offers a sunny terrace, large grassy areas and even a stream rippling through. Enjoy the BBQ and outdoor furniture and host a wonderful midsummer party.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Set in a secluded spot in the south of the Isle of Wight, the property is 2.5 miles to the nearest family-friendly pub. It's a beautifully rural walk, however, and offers pub grub and a cold pint at the end of it. Pack your walking boots or bikes and get to know the luscious surrounding area. You'll also find yourself a mere 2 miles away from one of the island's most popular holiday destinations, Shanklin. This charming seaside town feels like a step back in time, with its old village full of thatched buildings, independent gift shops and unique tea rooms. As it's just 2.5 miles from the beautiful sandy Shanklin Beach, you'll no doubt find yourself spending a lot of time there. The stunning sandstone cliffs offer a remarkable backdrop, and you can also partake in a bit of sailing, surfing, windsurfing or paddleboarding in the calm Channel waters. All of this is only made better by the island's delicate micro-climate which sees much more sunshine than mainland England. Don't forget your bucket and spade!

A great cottage in a very quiet location, in a central place to all of the attractions on the island. A very spacious cottage with a home from home feel. The cake and milk upon arrival was much appreciated. We also liked the choice of books and dvds as well.

The house was charming: stylish, peaceful and functional. Its garden was a delight at this time of year, being full of rhododendrons and blossom. The kitchen was superb.
