On the southern-most tip of the island with huge sea views is your 19th-century stone coach house. In a small group of listed former farm buildings with one other holiday property next door, it has been thoughtfully converted into a bright, comfy and sociable space, with high sloping ceilings and those views out to sea through the big picture window. Filled with natural light, the open-plan living and kitchen space has plenty of room to rustle up a meal, dine and relax, with a wood-burner to keep things cosy on winter nights. On the same level bedrooms are fresh, airy and uncluttered and bathrooms are modern and practical. You are welcomed by friendly Jay and Mark who live on-site and having been there for many years love the area – and quite rightly so. This is a spectacular place for walking, with dramatic plunging cliffs and lush vegetation, Castle Haven harbour is a 15-minute walk for a quick dip and big family beaches Ventnor, Sandown and Shanklin are a short drive away. Your private south-facing garden is peaceful and you can pop round the corner to the famous Buddle Inn for good food and real ales.
