Idyllic Country Cottage Ideally Placed to Explore the Isle of Wight

Hedgrow & Fossill Cottage are one bedroom cottages in an idyllic rural location which is quiet and peaceful in the midst of secluded South Isle of Wight countryside, two miles from the coast and 5 minutes walk from The White Horse Inn, a quality Island dining pub. There is also an option to rent another 1 bedroom cottage alongside this, giving 2 bedrooms in total. There are spectacular views of the downs from all around the cottage, with beautiful sunsets. In the fields are dairy cows, a stream, hawthorn hedges and plenty of wildlife. The cottage is excellently situated for walking, cycling and fishing and romantic breaks. There is easy access on to the footpaths directly outside the cottage which join the extensive Stenbury and Worsley trails near Appuldurcombe, or the west wight coastal paths, all providing panoramic views. Close by Nettlecombe Farm (short footpath walk) there are three well-stocked fishing lakes (permits available.

A five-minute walk leads to historic Whitwell village and dining pub. The White Horse pub is very popular for meals and there is an attractive 700-year old church. Close by is Niton village with post office, food shops and beautiful St Catherine’s Lighthouse. Under ten minutes by car is the pretty Victorian seaside town of Ventnor with its own micro-climate offering sandy beaches, sub-tropical botanic gardens and local ale. You can also walk to Ventnor using public footpaths leading straight from the house with spectacular views.


This is an original island stone cottage at the end of three adjoining cottages which are several hundred years old. Restored by National Trust builders, this lovely cottage is tastefully decorated and furnished. You enter into an attractive kitchen with tiled floor, leading on to a pleasant sitting room with a television/DVD and sofa. The kitchen is well-equipped with fitted units, electric oven and hob, microwave, refrigerator with freezer section and washer machine.

Upstairs is an attractive double bedroom and separate bathroom with a bath and excellent overhead shower. At both the rear and the front of the cottage are table and chairs to make most of the early morning and evening sun. Breakfast on the rear patio and a glass of wine at sunset at the front of the property. A car may be parked beside the cottages. Please note access to the cottage is over the fields along a well-maintained gravel farm track. The village may be accessed back along the farm track or by public footpath taking approx 5 minute.
