With just a handful of character houses, fishermen, rock-pools, deck chairs and a safe friendly feeling, it is the perfect place for families to build sand castles, go rock pooling, or for couples to just relax. There are no noisy arcades or kiss-me-quick hats, just good old-fashioned seaside bliss. It’s even got a donkey.

Right on the door step is The Boathouse Restaurant which has become very popular with both locals and holiday makers alike. The restaurant is renowned for its fresh crab and lobster with crisp salads and fresh bread. A little further afield in Ventnor is the Hambrough a Michelin star restaurant. Currently at number 20 in The Good Food Guide The Hambrough offers breathtaking views over the English Channel in this sub-tropical part of the Island.

The cottage has a wonderful airy seaside feel, the bedrooms are decorated in hues of ivory and blue and has a great woodburner for cosy winter weekends.
