About Beachside Cottage

"Go rock-pooling on the beach a few metres from the deck fronting this characterful cottage on Steephill Cove. The three bedrooms have lovely sea views. The Shaker-style kitchen is well equipped with a double oven, espresso machine and sea views from the rear window. Eat on the deck or try the nearby Boathouse restaurant, renowned for its fresh crab." - The Times (March, 2018)

This enchanting Isle of Wight holiday cottage is situated on the sands in the quintessential coastal Isle of Wight address of Steephill Cove, as featured on Channel 4's Penelope Keith's Coastal Villages . You will be able to supervise the family's rock pooling or keep an eye on the BBQ, from your own expansive private decking raised just meters from the beach.

Inside the cottage has been renovated to a high standard with a modern kitchen complete with double oven and gas hobs, as well as your own espresso machine, perfect for a morning pick me up. The sitting room welcomes you with a relaxing sofa and snug armchairs huddled around the wood burner, all the windows from the sitting room are lucky to enjoy remarkable views south across the channel. The dining room is the perfect place to enjoy a family meal at the end of a day spent on the beach with it's exposed wood floors and thick walls at the heart of the room is a smart dining table with seating for 8. The southern aspect of the property is bordered by a large deck perched over the rocks, a prime location for alfresco dining or even just to catch the last of the evening rays on the sun loungers.
