Hedgerow Cottage, Fossil Cottage & The Bake House are one bedroom cottages in an idyllic rural location which is quiet and peaceful in the midst of secluded South Isle of Wight countryside, two miles from the coast and 5 minutes walk from The village pub.
There are spectacular views of the downs from all around the cottages, with beautiful sunsets. In the fields are dairy cows, a stream, hawthorn hedges and plenty of wildlife. The cottages are excellently situated for walking, cycling and fishing and romantic breaks. We are also dog friendly & adult only. There is easy access on to the footpaths directly outside the cottages which join the extensive Stenbury and Worsley trails near Appuldurcombe, or the west wight coastal paths, all providing panoramic views. At close by Nettlecombe Farm (short footpath walk) there are three well stocked fishing lakes (permits available).
A five minute walk across fields leads to historic Whitwell village and dining pub. The White Horse pub is very popular for meals and there is an attractive 700-year old church. Close by is Niton village with post office, food shops and beautiful St Catherine’s Lighthouse. Under ten minutes by car is the pretty Victorian seaside town of Ventnor with its own micro climate offering sandy beaches, sub-tropical botanic gardens and local ale. You can also walk to Ventnor using public footpaths leading straight from the house with spectacular views.
At both the rear and the front of the cottages are table and chairs to make most of the early morning and evening sun. You can take breakfast on the rear patio and a glass of wine at sunset at the front of the property.
A car may be parked beside the cottages. Please note access to the cottage is over the fields along a gravel farm track. The village may be accessed back along the farm track or by public footpath taking approx 5 minute.
The adult only cottages are ideally placed to explore the whole Island and are perfect for couples, walkers, cyclists and anyone wishing to have a relaxing, peaceful stay. They sleep 2 in a double bedroom with kingsize bed, and also comprise of a living room, kitchen and bathroom. Hedgerow, Fossil & Rose Cottage both have log burners. Your four legged friend is also most welcome, it is true dog walking heaven straight from your front door. There is a directory that provides details of local hidden beaches, ideal for a swim, stunning countryside and coastal footpaths, the best places for eating out and everything else you need to know to make your stay perfect.

Had the perfect stay at Hedgerow cottage with my dog. Everything was just right - the location is beautiful, peaceful and secluded yet easy to find, and ideal for exploring Ventnor and beyond. We enjoyed stunning walks from the door across the fields to the coast path - all really well explained in the guide book. The bedroom is gorgeous, super comfy bed and lovely bed linen. The kitchen has everything you need, and the cosy sitting room is perfect for relaxing in the evening. All in all a gorgeous place to stay.
