Thoughtfully maintained Grade II listed cottage sleeping four guests with attractive period features and a pretty, enclosed garden.
This beautiful period property sleeps four guests and three dogs. Set in a small rural hamlet, alongside five other cottages, it’s the ideal location to fully switch off from the outside world and bask in peace and tranquillity. Having said that, you are still only 2 miles from the bustling seaside resort of Shanklin and there are some great dog-friendly attractions nearby, such as Ventnor Botanic Garden, guaranteed to get tails wagging.
The single-storey cottage is warm and inviting, thanks to the tasteful decor, soft furnishings and fabulous original features. In the spacious lounge/diner you’ll find a gorgeous stone fireplace with a wood burner – the perfect spot for the woofers to doze after a trip to the beach. There are also hard floors, making it easy to clean up muddy/sandy pawprints! From here, French doors open out onto the pretty cottage garden. On a warm day, you can leave them open and let the dogs potter in and out, safe in the knowledge that the garden is fully enclosed.
Shanklin Chine (3 miles away) really is a must, especially on a hot day. The shady tree-lined gorge is truly breathtaking, and the hounds will really appreciate the cool mist from the falling water. Although the beach at Shanklin has a seasonal dog ban, the picturesque town is lovely and has some great dog-friendly pubs. Yaverland Beach (4.5 miles away), however, is dog friendly all year. At low tide, there is an enormous stretch of sand for them to charge about, whilst you enjoy the views of the white cliffs of Culver Down. If you like your plants, head to Ventnor Botanic Garden (5 miles away). The unique microclimate means you can see over 30,000 rare and subtropical plants growing outdoors. Dogs are welcome on leads and water bowls are provided.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
