  • Best price guarantee

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at and we'll refund you the difference.


    Don't forget, we guarantee you won't find a cheaper price elsewhere

    About this property

    This superb period country house is peacefully located along a quiet country lane next to a farm, and stands gracefully within its own lawned gardens. Surrounded by countryside, distant views of St Catherine’s Oratory and the sea can be viewed from the upper level bedrooms, and many scenic walks can be enjoyed in this delightful area. The charming parish of Chale lies at the foot of St Catherine’s Hill, and has a general store, a 14th-century church and a renowned pub/restaurant, about a mile distant, with the sea slightly further. This welcoming detached holiday retreat has been lovingly refurbished, boasting many features such as flagstone floors, window shutters, beams and wood-burning stoves. With families in mind, there is a family room in addition to the main living room, and a spacious dining hall as well as separate dining/breakfast room, which leads to a conservatory. The large lawned garden has a play area for the children. This is an ideal holiday base to explore the area with its fantastic scenic walking, and footpaths can also be followed to join the coastal path leading to breathtaking routes across miles of Heritage Coastline. There are secluded sandy bays within 10 minutes drive, and sailing, fishing, golf, cycling, swimming and water sports can be found locally. Nearby is Blackgang Chine, the UK’s first theme park which dates back to 1843, and on the west side of the island there is another theme park at The Needles, where the rock formations can be seen. The popular Victorian sandy seaside resort of Ventnor is about 15 minutes’ drive, with its pubs, shops and restaurants and promenade/pier where fresh crab and lobster or catch of the day can be purchased. There is plenty to do on this lovely island, including many NT homes and gardens, such as Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, the Pearl Centre and Calbourne Water Mill which has 17th century water and stone mills. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

    "Lovely house, had great time as this was a perfect base for the family, 5 adults and 4 children who loved the freedom torun and play in the garden before breakfast and on our return from days out. I would recommend this lovely farmhouse."

    "A lovely house in a beautiful if rather out of the way location. We were blessed with gorgeous weather - paddling in the sea, cliff walks and crazy golf. A great week had by all."
    "It wasn't very clean upstairs. Looked like it had been empty for months"
    Previous guest
    "Lovely property with plenty of room for kids even when stuck indoors to shelter from the rain! There were 10 of us including 3 young children. Very warm and cosy once you locate the heating controls (1st floor airing cupboard). All very well fitted out to make it a proper home from home. No walkable access to the beach which was a shame (it seems the local chine has been closed). A bit of a car trek to the local town, Ventnor, which is a pleasant enough place apart from over-zealous traffic wardens. May 2012. "
