Peacefully located along a quiet rural lane, this spacious detached family home enjoys a lawned garden and superb far reaching views over local countryside. It is only half a mile from the picturesque village of Brighstone with its thatched roof shops and cottages, pub, restaurant and small museum. This welcoming home has a well equipped kitchen, a conservatory and sea views from the master bedroom. This area is fantastic for scenic walking. Footpaths from the house lead to breathtaking routes across miles of Heritage coastline or onto the Downs, joining the popular Tennyson Trail leading to Tennyson Down with its monument and on to the Needles. West High Down and Headon Warren are other popular walks in the area. Quiet lanes and off-road trails make the area ideal for cycling, and the sign-posted 60 mile ’Round the Island’ cycle route passes through the village. The unspoilt west coast beaches, including the secluded, sandy bay of Compton is within a 10-minute drive, and plenty of outdoor pursuits including sailing, fishing, golf, cycling, paragliding and watersports can be found locally. Within easy reach are many tourist attractions, including the Needles, Blackgang Chine, pottery painting at Chessell, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Calbourne Water Mill, Dinosaur Isle, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, The Garlic Farm and many more. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Our second annual stay at Sandrock and our high expectations after our first visit were all we had hoped for from what is clearly a well specified, comfortable family home not a run of the mill holiday let. We have a large, well behaved, friendly German Shepherd and once we closed the front gate we were happy for her to roam free in the enclosed garden and driveway. The rear panoramic views are fantastic and the local village shops are very friendly. National Trust run car parks are within a short drive for beaches. The access road to the cottage is about 300 yards up an unmade country lane but we had no problems navigating our hired Hyundai i800 (approx. transit van sized) either up the lane or up onto Sandrock's L-shaped gravel drive. Once on the drive I could turn it around to face outwards again in about a 7-9 point turn. A tip if returning when it has been raining, you might find the grip/traction easier to turn onto Sandrock's drive if you turn around about 20 yards further up the lane and drive on to Sandrock's drive facing down rather than up the lane. Would highly recommend The Crown Inn at Shorwell and The Wight Mouse Inn at Chale for good pub restaurant food or the Tamarind in Newport for Indian eat-in or takeaway food (special fixed price menu twice weekly).

    The holiday was an escape from hectic day to day lives. My mother, Sister and myself enjoyed it and so did our dogs. The garden was ample space for them to run around in and the local pub was very welcoming to all of us. The only negative was the weather and we couldn't pick that!
