Property code: IC163

Delightful Grade II listed cottage dating from the 15th century, offering attractive period-style accommodation for three guests, located in the quiet hamlet of St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight’s south coast.

This beautiful Grade II listed period cottage dates to the 15th century and lies in the peaceful seaside hamlet of St Lawrence, on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Providing a tranquil and secluded retreat, this is the ideal property for couples and small families looking for that rustic country getaway with their faithful furry companions. With an abundance of countryside and coastline right on the doorstep, be sure to leave no stick unturned whilst you explore the breathtaking scenery, glorious sandy beaches, and fantastic walks this region has to offer.

 

Situated all on one level, this charming cottage blends stylish furnishings with original features to provide a cosy home-from-home atmosphere. The pretty lounge is chic in design with a wood burner to cuddle up in front of after a day of tail-wagging adventures. Wooden flooring throughout means that muddy boots and paws can be easily wiped clean without worry or fuss. The two bedrooms continue the shabby-chic style of the property and provide a tranquil space to rest, ready for the next day ahead. Outside, the attractive patio garden is secluded for those nights where you prefer to dine alfresco.

 

The quiet little hamlet of St Lawrence is between countryside and coast and situated only 2 miles from the seaside town of Ventnor. With fantastic walks and local amenities available for you and your pup from your front door, what more could you ask for to get tails wagging? Positioned beneath St Boniface Down, the highest point on the Isle of Wight, Ventnor has a unique micro-climate and is a popular seaside resort. Offering a great selection of shops and dog-friendly eateries, this pretty town is a delight to visit for a refreshment or two.

Terrific little cottage just on the edge of Ventnor (5 mins drive or you can use the coastal path if you have the energy). Clean, really well appointed, very generous welcome package (don't do any shopping before you arrive!), with a snug parking spot which was very handy. Nice outside area too with a place to hang washing if needed. Freshwater bayRead more is approx half an hour away, Shanklin and Sandown convenient in the other direction. If eating out book before you leave, the island is busy! Hide

Vestry Cottage was amazing. It was so clean on arrival and the welcome pack that the owners provided as outstanding, the best I've ever seen. It was the perfect location to explore the island, nothing was more that a 40 minute drive away and when at the cottage it was really quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to unwind after a full day out.

A wonderful cosy cottage with all that you need. A welcome pack second to none - more than in any other cottage weve stayed in (and weve been self catering for over 30 years!). Wonderful little garden - with some lovely visitors (fox, field mouse etc). Nice peaceful area to stay.
