Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming detached stone cottage makes a wonderful holiday home, beautifully situated overlooking the sea on the southern tip of the island.

This is a wonderful walking area with the coastal path leading to Niton Undercliff where you will find St Catherine’s Lighthouse. Heading westwards along the beautiful, dramatic and unspoilt area of coastline will take you all the way to the Needles. Alternatively you can enjoy downland walks or follow the course of the River Yar from Niton to Bembridge. A short stroll will take you to the main village of Niton. The small but popular seaside resort of Ventnor is just a short drive away. Renowned for its sandy beach and the Ventnor Botanic Garden, the town also offers a choice of great shops and places to eat and drink. Also nearby are St Lawrence, Blackgang, Chale and Brighstone.

On entering this beautiful holiday home, which offers fantastic sea views from several rooms, you will find the tastefully furnished lounge, which features plenty of comfortable seating and TV/DVD. You will also find a charming dining room. Going over to the stylishly designed kitchen you will find it fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available in a separate utility area. Heading upstairs you will find three charming bedrooms. There’s a spacious double room with a king-size bed and sea views, a double/twin room with a 6 ft zip-and-link bed which also enjoys sea views, plus a pleasant twin room. You will also find a bathroom complete with a hand-held shower, bath and WC, as well as a separate shower room with a built-in shower and WC.

Stepping outside you will find a wonderful, secluded, peaceful south-facing garden. There is a patio area immediately outside the cottage with garden furniture so you can dine in the sunshine. The garden has areas of lawn, well-established shrubberies and, at the far end, there is a seating area with views across the fields to the sea with the wonderful aspect of St Catherine’s Lighthouse to one side. It is a wonderful location in which to relax, watching the sailing boats pass by and is sensational for such events as the Round the Island Race in June. Cars can be parked in the quiet road outside of the property. Twelve steps lead down to the cottage entrance.

St Catherine's is in a beautiful location with stunning views and a lovely garden and despite the wet weather we experienced we still enjoyed some great walks from the house - and of course a drink by the fire in the pub a few metres away! A thriving village with a handy shop - and post office that doubled up as a bar in the evening! Very comfy bedRead mores and well equipped, although not a luxury feel as some of the decor did feel a little dated. I would be happy to stay there again. Hide

St Catherine's Cottage is in a perfect location for us to visit all of the island. The cottage is so spacious and has a fantastic garden with just a short walk down to the beach front caf and little fishing harbour. We have been visiting this island for years and this was one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

A lovely cottage with a gorgeous garden. We spent three weeks there with six people. Space to spread out: teens on devices in dining room and upstairs seating area, while we watched telly. Kitchen big enough for all to move about. Fantastic area for walks. Glorious sea views!

It is so seldom that a cottage exceeds expectations - but this one certainly did. The three of us, and Jake the dog, had a truly memorable week. And the views from the garden really are stunning.

Reviewed by Nick Shepherd July 2016

We can see why many people return to this wonderful cottage. Comfortable, well equipped and fantastic garden. Feels like a home rather than holiday accommodation. Provision of large dog cage was very thoughtful and useful. Would love to come back.
