This beautifully presented, period Victorian house, adjoining a small property at the rear and set in a semi-rural location close to Newport, Ryde and East Cowes, is ideally situated for exploring all the island has to offer. The popular Isle of Wight Steam Railway and Museum at Havenstreet is just a short drive from this holiday property, as is the town of Ryde, with its good selection of individual shops, restaurants, bars and tea shops, whilst the beautiful beach is approximately 5 miles away. Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, and the Needles, with chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and the coloured sands of Alum Bay, are approximately 10 miles away. Attractions in the area include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle, a donkey sanctuary and Calbourne Water Mill, which has a 17th-century working watermill. Slightly further afield, Osborne House and Gardens (Queen Victoria’s holiday residence), Carisbrooke Castle and the sailing town of Yarmouth are worthy of a visit. Cowes in the north west of the island is renowned for its sailing. Also within easy reach are vineyards and quaint villages, some with thatched roofs, such as Godshill, Old Shanklin and Brighstone. Popular sandy beaches such as Ventnor, Bembridge, Compton and Steephill Cove are a short drive away. Outdoor pursuits include scenic walking, horse riding, fishing, cycling, watersports and golf. The island can be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points. Beach 5 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile.
