Set within an AONB, most of the surrounding land is National Trust and includes the West High Down, The Tennyson Trail and the stunning Heritage coastline. Tennyson monument and Headon Warren, with its breath-taking views of The Needles, are nearby. Amenities in Totland and Freshwater are only a 5-minute drive, offering shops, library, tearooms, indoor swimming pool and pubs.
