    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.
    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.

    "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."

    "It's a perfect place to stay with a dog. The hosts are welcoming and helpful.Well equipped kitchen but no iron or ironing board."
    Marie ‐ 6 Aug 2018
    "The cottage is tiny, but very cosy with your own garden. Very suitable for 2 adults with or without a dog. The beach is very nearby, which was lovely."
    Karen ‐ 22 Jul 2018
    "Lovely place to stay, the garden gate leads straight into the coastal path and can take you into Sandown or shanklin within a 30 minutes walk. Very close to local supermarket and amenities. Cottage itself is very cosy, it also has a big secured garden so very safe if you have a dog. It is close to a local train station so the train does go past every so often but only between 6am to 10:30pm, we never found this an issue at all. Lovely place to be and would definitely recommend. Hosts were also very welcoming and friendly."
    Richard ‐ 15 Jul 2018
    "A friendly welcome from helpful hosts. Comfortable accommodation with access to the coastal path, three bus routes and the station a short walk away."
    Victoria ‐ 13 May 2018
    "This little cottage is perfect for a solo traveller with a dog or two. The location is ideal for a dog-friendly holiday. The back gate opens straight onto the cliff path, with a mostly-enclosed park next door and dog-friendly beaches just down the cliff. The local cafes and restaurants are almost all dog-friendly, so no need to cook. The area feels very safe, which is important when traveling alone.The cottage is cosy. It's perfectly big enough for one person, or for two petite people who really like each other! There are simple kitchen facilities ideal for snacks, although eating main meals out is easier (who wants to cook on holiday anyway!). The bed's comfortable, but don't bring your entire wardrobe, as storage space for clothes is very limited. The enclosed garden is ideal for fur babies.The local train does go past the front gate every so often, but even my noise-sensitive dog stopped barking at it after the third train went past, so nothing to worry about there.Everything was nice and clean, and the milk, teabags, wine, biscuits and cakes were a lovely personal touch that you don't get from a self-catering resort. Keith and Sarah were very attentive hosts, always nearby if they were needed."

    "The cottage was small but was very adequate . The ensuite lovely, very good shower. The garden was secure, so no worries about the dog. Lovely position on the Coastal Path with lovely views across Sandown Bay. I would stay here again."
    Roger ‐ 20 Feb 2018
    "Delightful ownership couple. Exceptionally amicable and considerate. Cottage is in fact a wood cabin attached to the main house, but with its own separate small garden. The back gate leads directly on to the coastal path from which it's a short walk down to the beach below. Location ideal for pets and humans alike!! Only downside is bathroom / bedroom slightly cramped."
