The Stable at Buddle Place

Niton, Isle of Wight

Families and walkers will be happy at this unfussy seaside retreat with beaches down the road and coastal paths right by your door


5 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


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.

We stayed in the Barn at Buddle Place and had the best time on the Isle of Wight. The cottage for four people was cosy, comfortable and the perfect place to relax (particularly by the fire place). It is located in a small town close to the sea. The cottage was well equipped and ideally located to explore the key attractions of the island. Jay and Mark were lovely hosts! We highly recommend!

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 night break within this delightful old fisherman's cottage which has been renovated to the highest of standards, decorated in muted tones and bright whites. Spacious, practical and replete with a superb wood burner, it made for an extremely relaxing stay for a young family of four. The cottage is superbly located just a step away from outstanding coastal paths with the sort of views you can only really enjoy from this spectacular part of the Isle of White. The owner Jay was very friendly and helpful with great comms. We will definitely be back.

Local points of interest from Jay Lowein

  • St Catherines Lighthouse is a few hundred yards away, take a seasonal tour & climb the 94 steps to the lantern at the top. Close by is Castlehaven with its small fishing harbour, beach cafe & the opportunity for a swim from the slipway.
  • Walk up to 'The Pepperpot' on St Catherines Down - Britain's only surviving medieval lighthouse. There are spectacular views from here to the mainland & all around the island. Extend your walk 2 miles further to the Hoy Monument.
  • Visit nearby Ventnor Botanical Gardens nestled in the Undercliff with its unique micro climate. Sub tropical plants, normally under glass, thrive outdoors here. Stop for lunch at the Edulis restaurant or Plantation Room cafe.
  • There are coastal paths within walking distance of the house, part of the island's 500 mile network. The National Trust own the farmland leading down to the lighthouse below & cliff paths take you west towards Freshwater Bay or east towards Ventnor.
  • Enjoy the beach at nearby Steephill Cove, only accessible on foot & have lunch there at the Crab Shack ( try Mandy's famous crab pasties ) In the summer the Boathouse restaurant is open & there are kayaks for hire to paddle around the cove.
  • Explore Ventnor 10 minutes drive away. There is an excellent swimming beach, independant shops, pubs & good restaurants. During August Ventnor has its own Fringe Festival, a week of events including music, theatre & film.
