Hundreds of miles of footpaths and cycle ways, cliff tops, downlands, woodlands, coves, bays, chines and estuaries, including the National Trust Newtown nature reserve. The Island is also a home to rare red squirrels and a haven for bird watchers and fossil hunters.

The large fenced patio is facing the sea, the communal gardens and the ample, private parking. Access is via a wide, ramped path, suitable for wheelchairs.

The cottage is two hundred and fifty yards from the beach and coastal path, and adjacent to other local footpaths and the panoramic Military Road, which follows the coast from Blackgang to Freshwater Bay. This part of the Island is totally unspoilt, with beautiful coastal and downland scenery, attractive to walkers, golfers, cyclists, fossil hunters, surfers and extreme sports enthusiasts. It is also wonderful for families wanting a traditional, "get away from it all" seaside holiday, having miles of sandy beaches with rockpools and safe swimming.
Although it has a feeling of remoteness the cottage is half a mile from the attractive village of Brighstone, with local amenities, and seven miles from the county town of Newport, which has a wide range of shops and facilities. The amenities of picturesque Brighstone village are pleasant halves a mile walk inland. Brighstone has a grocer, newsagent, Post Office, doctors' surgery, library, two pubs, tea garden, National Trust shop, free village museum and a beautiful Norman church. Nearby Brook and Compton Bays are popular with extreme watersports enthusiasts and paragliders, but also provide safe swimming, sand, rockpools and real dinosaur footprints for younger visitors. Dinosaur Farm Museum, site of recent unique dinosaur finds, is one and a half miles away. The popular Blackgang Chine theme park and The Needles and Alum Bay are all within a 15 minute drive or accessible via a panoramic bus ride. The spectacular cliff-top Freshwater Bay Golf Club is a 5 minute drive away.
Of local historic interest are Mottistone Manor, Neolithic downland burial mounds and "The Longstone" standing stone. On Island Eye we have a history page, where you can find interesting information about the whole Island and while you are there you can also see what our beautiful Isle of Wight offers for everyone. Sport, family attractions, and exciting events are just a small part of all the entertainment you will find on the Island.
We have lived in Brighstone for twenty four years, on the Island for even longer, and would like to introduce you to a very special place. If you choose to book with us we aim to do everything we can to make your holiday a really enjoyable time.
