Our detached stone and chalk cottage is about two hundred years old, and stands in an attractive and sunny
half-acre garden, down a small lane in the centre of the village of Brighstone. The Cottage sleeps six
and has two bathrooms, one en-suite, and the shops and pub are within a minute's walk.
Brighstone is in the more rural western half of the island and is about one mile from the sea. It has many
thatched stone cottages, a medieval church, a pub, cafe/restaurant and several shops. The whole island is very
accessible from the village, with even the longest drive to the eastern end of the island
only about three-quarters of an hour.
There are several walks from The Cottage, for instance down to the sea and the coastal footpath or onto the chalk downs above the village to join the island-wide downs footpath. These are part of a network of over 500 miles of walks on the island.
There are a number of
good beaches for swimming of which National Trust owned
Compton Bay, with its lovely views of Tennyson Down, is only a ten minute drive from Brighstone.
