    About this property

    Apple Tree Cottage is a delightfully cosy, detached chalet, great for couples, it’s pet friendly too, making it the perfect base to explore the south east side of the Isle of Wight.
    All on the ground floor.
    Open plan living space:
    With wooden floor and French doors leading to garden.
    Living area: With 28" Smart TV and CD player.
    Dining area.
    Kitchen area:
    With electric hob, combi microwave/oven/grill and fridge.
    Bedroom: With double bed.
    Shower room: With shower cubicle and toilet.
    Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack and doggy extras. Laundry service available on request. Enclosed lawned garden with patio, sitting-out area, garden furniture and barbecue. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking.
    Located in the village of Lake, between the popular resort beaches of Sandown and Shanklin, the property is set adjacent to the owner’s home. The chalet benefits from a fully enclosed south-facing rear garden and has a rear gate that provides access directly out onto the cliff top coastal path, presenting you with a stunning view over Sandown Bay and its pier.
    The beach at Lake can be accessed from a set of steps from the top of the cliff path, alternatively you can gain access from Shanklin or Sandown Esplanades via a short walk in either direction along the sea wall. Because this beach is tucked away and not as straightforward to reach as its resort neighbours it is very often quieter during the busier months, making it a peaceful alternative for a day on the beach. As the waters are quieter, this is a great beach for surfing and water sports, as the sea is shallow and clear. There is an instructional school which is located nearby that offers a whole range of activities for all ages and abilities, there’s also a café and barbecue area which is always popular during the summer season. There’s also beach huts which you can look to hire and a number of benches to sit on along the sea wall path when the tide is further in. The walk along the sea wall between Sandown and Shanklin along the back of the beach, is highly recommended as it offers a wide, flat path which is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.
    For guests choosing to visit the island without their car, a favourable way to reach the property is to take the Wightlink Fast Cat service to Ryde Pier head and then the train to Lake Station which is only a 3-minute walk from the property. The island has become a real hot spot for cycling enthusiasts, with a choice of challenging off-road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks running along former railway lines. You can cycle across the width of the island to the famous Needles landmark, or try the full round the island route, which is 66 miles long and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee held over the bank holiday in May. You can also travel along the route at a more leisurely pace, stopping off along the way at one of the many restaurants, pubs and cafés that can be found in the quaint villages and towns.
    Sandown is a truly traditional British beach resort with pier, amusements, pitch ’n’ putt, Isle of Wight Zoo, children’s play area and the Dinosaur Isle attraction at the northern end of the esplanade towards Yaverland and Culver Cliff. The town is brimming with attractions to entertain visitors, most of them right on the beach front itself, so you never have to stray too far from the golden sands. At the other end of the path you will reach Shanklin Esplanade which is again packed full of amusements and crazy golf as well as several places to eat. Away from the beach the main town hosts a multitude of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants to enjoy. The old village is world famous with its pretty thatched cottages, cosy tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and craft shops to discover. Outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, paragliding, golf and water sports. There are numerous attractions across the island to discover for all ages, such as The Needles (with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay), Blackgang Chine, Dinosaur Isle, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park and Carisbrooke Castle - or why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens? The sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes also make for a great day out. Beach 500 yards. Shops, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    "The property is small and can best be described as a chalet rather than a cottage. But this is quite obvious from details available when booking. In no way did the size of the property negatively impact our stay. For us the location was ideal as we like walking with our dog, eating out at lunch and chilling in the evening with a bottle or two. A park is right next door which was ideal for us as our dog likes to stretch her legs before she performs her calls of nature. About 5 or 6 miles of pristine sandy beach is within a few minutes walk (as long as you don't mind the cliff stairs). Nothing on the Isle of Wight is far away so you don't have to spend too long in a car (although during our stay there seemed to be traffic-controlled roadworks round every bend)."

    "This is a lovely cottage although it is quite small. We had very inclement weather and when we turned on the radiators they did not come on. Also the trains did wake us up from early in the morning but that was no fault of the cottage, unless you sleep very soundly it can be a problem."

    "Really too small chairs uncomfortable lack of sunshine due to location ok for fit people out walking dogs and owners very nice"
    Sara ‐ 18 Jul 2019
    "Wonderful week at Apple Tree Cottage. Owners couldn't have been better. On hand if needed but not intrusive. Lovely garden, accommodation quite small but as expected from information given. Lots to do nearby and the peace and quiet and fresh sea air we felt in the garden was a delight.Our dog loved the garden as it was completely secure.Would definitely recommend it and would love to go back."

    "Very pleased with the holiday, our hosts were very helpfull and friendly"

    "This tiny wooden "chalet" was six metres long at its widest divided into two main areas. The largest was the lounge, kitchen diner with television & double doors to outside. The slightly smaller area measuring 260 cm square with a further section divided into a shower room with toilet & very small sink. (I measured it all but wont bore you with the details.) We had to move suitcases from the small space around the bed to lounge area, to go to sleep then return the cases in morning to bedroom area to make breakfast. As there is very minimal storage space to use. Due to heavy rain for most of the week that we stayed & my mother's lack of mobility we spent more time in here than was healthy. One of the host's constant daily monitoring from their adjacent home made us leave the blinds down on the double glass doors as the "chalet's" doors opens directly onto their large garden. There was little privacy or space & wooden floors creaked when walked upon. I would not consider this a suitable place for two people & a dog to holiday in anytime maybe one person only, especially when paying customers. Hosts were less than welcoming & mostly indifferent when we spoke to them. The as mentioned on other reviews homemade cakes appeared on Thursday before we left, as a sweetener for a good review. They were left uneaten, train passes every 20 minutes from early in the morning until 10.30pm close to location and rough sparsely tarred road to property with many potholes not great for anyone's car."

    "Very nice host, friendly and very welcoming. The cottage is in an excellent location to the coastal path and beach ideal for dog walkers."
    Nela ‐ 3 Jun 2019
    "The place is a bit small, esp when you come with dogs, but its location compensate everything!"
    Patricia ‐ 17 May 2019
    "Very good location. Very dog friendly. Own garden for dog. Park a few yards away. Chalet very comfortable. Keith and Sarah very friendly and helpful. Lovely homemade cakes by Sarah.Plenty of walks close at hand and further afield. Lovely coastal walks.Highly recommend."

    "Worked very well for me as single person with aged dog!"
    Valerie ‐ 3 May 2019
    "We loved our stay and can't wait to return. The accommodation has lots of thoughtful touches and we really appreciated the gate from the garden to the coast path."

    "Very cosy hosts very friendly Very good location only 10 mins walk from beach our dogs loved it Only downside I have a bad back and easy chairs did not help it"
    Hazel ‐ 2 Nov 2018
    "Lovely hosts. Nothing too much trouble. Nice secure garden which our dog loved together with the park on our doorstep . Cliff walks to Shanklin and Sandown. Kitchen well stocked with cooking equipment. Would highly recommend apple tree cottage."
    Anne ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "The owners were so welcoming and thoughtful. Unfortunately one of our dogs was taken very ill but, they were really good in helping us find a vet and they checked with us every day to see if he was okay. The garden was lovely, opened up onto a perfect park for the dogs. Hopefully we will return and be able to enjoy the whole week without a poorly dog."
