    About this property

    This is an ideal central base giving easy access to all corners of the island and its many attractions.
    Enjoying a picturesque and rural setting away from the bright lights, Dean Croft Holiday Cottage offers the perfect location for a walking or cycling holiday, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning countryside and the night stars. The property can accommodate up to four guests, provides spacious and comfortable accommodation for families or couples, has off road parking and its own enclosed garden with a storage shed for bicycles. The garden also has an observatory with telescopes for stargazing, making it perfect for astronomy lovers, and the property is also aptly known as Stargazing Cottage.

    On the ground floor the property has a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, offering facilities all on the ground floor for less mobile guests. There is also a large open plan living room/kitchen and conservatory/dining room. On the first floor there is a spacious twin bedroom and a bathroom.

    Located around a mile and a half from Godshill, a traditional Isle of Wight village with a number of stone built, thatched cottages and shops. This pretty village has become a popular destination with visitors and is home to some of the oldest architecture on the island. With a medieval church and lots of traditional tea rooms serving delicious cream teas, it is well worth a visit. The popular seaside resorts of Ventnor and Shanklin are approximately 15 minutes away, with fantastic parks, gardens and glorious beaches. The Island’s Capital, Newport, with it’s many amenities, including a leisure centre and theatre, is also only approximately 15 minutes away.

    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. Cycle on the full ’round the island route’, which is 66 miles long and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee held over the May Bank Holiday. You can also travel along the route at a more leisurely pace, and along the way amongst the quaint villages and towns, you will find numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés serving tasty local produce.

    Further outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for including horse riding, fishing, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages, such as The Needles with its chairlift down to the coloured sands of Alum Bay, amusement park, boat rides and lighthouse. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens, Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer for everyone. Shop 2 miles, pub 1 mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
