"If you want to see the tide rise while sitting drinking coffee, if you want to really hear birds sing, if you want to see the stars in a dark sky this is the place for you. Magical rural location on a farm that is also close to great coffee shops and a lovely pub. We thought we got a really good Isle of Wight experience as nowhere was more than 30 mins away and we got to enjoy local facilities and restaurants as well as great walks. Oh there is a swan nesting nearby and a lovely little pony in the paddock outside!" Review from Matthew, April 2023
Estuary Cottage is a pretty one-storey stone farm cottage that’s bright, contemporary and cosy. It is set in a beautiful rural area that looks out onto a natural and biodiverse habitat. The property is a stone’s throw from the river and you can see glimpses of water from the courtyard. The property has access through a grass orchard down to a jetty on the Estuary for fishing at High Tide and the slipway for launching paddleboards or small craft is 30ft from the front door. There is access to the oudoor heated swimming pool in the Orchard from 10am-4pm May until September
The property sleeps up to 4 people in two bedrooms. All accommodation is on the ground floor (with 2 small internal steps) and every room leads directly onto a large enclosed courtyard, which makes for great al fresco dining and outside enjoyment.
An arched doorway leads directly into the lounge. Wooden floors throughout, complement the building and its furnishings. The lounge leads into a small fully functional kitchen with breakfast bar. Both bedrooms also lead off from the lounge.
The cottage has an en-suite master bedroom (king size bed), and a second twin bedroom with en-suite shower-room..
The house is centrally heated and for our winter guests there is a cosy wood-burning stove.
