Located just a short distance from the fantastic beaches at Yaverland, Sandown, Shanklin, Bembridge and St Helens, this delightful holiday home is great for couples, whether they are looking for a full week’s holiday or a short break. The detached apartment consists of a spacious open plan living room, kitchen and dining area. There is also a spacious double bedroom and shower room. Greenwood Cottage is pet friendly (although there are no enclosed garden areas), and is the perfect base from which to explore all that the eastern side of the Isle of Wight has to offer. The cottage is situated within the 11-acre grounds of Greenwood Farm, which are available for guests to enjoy as they wish. There are stables and paddocks available for use (arranged direct with the owner) and a public footpath runs along the farm that connects to Brading High Down and beyond. Peace and quiet flora and fauna abounds. Attractions nearby within easy walking distance include Brading Roman Villa, one of the finest Roman sites in the UK. Its visitor centre and museum offers unique insights into Roman life in Britain, with exhibits ranging from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.
The island has become a real hot spot for cycling enthusiasts with a choice of challenging off-road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks running along former railway lines. You can cycle across the width of the island to the famous Needles landmark or try the full round the island route, which is 66 miles long and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee held over the bank holiday in May. You can also travel along the route at a more leisurely pace, stopping off along the way at one of the many restaurants, pubs and cafés that can be found in the quaint villages and towns.
Other outdoor pursuits on the island include horse riding, fishing, paragliding, golf and water sports. There are numerous attractions across the island to discover for all ages, such as The Needles (with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay), Blackgang Chine, Dinosaur Isle, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park and Carisbrooke Castle - or why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and its gardens? The sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes also make for a great day out. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
