    Retaining many of its original features the cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated throughout to a high standard. Traditional and contemporary styles combine to offer high quality living for up to 6 people. It is the perfect blend of luxury with family practicality.

    Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the cottage has a tranquil and relaxing location, with the front and back gardens commanding panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

    Scallop Shell Cottage is the perfect retreat for adults and children alike. Little ones will head straight for the toy boxes whilst adults will admire the wood-burner, perfect for crisp winter days or late night relaxation and the Rayburn cooker.

    Inspired by the seasons and surrounding countryside the interior design and furnishings bring natures colour vibrancy inside.

    Many original features remain; stripped floor boards in the living room, stone flags in the kitchen, a cast-iron hearth in the green bedroom and stairs that date back to 1850!

    Location description

    Situated in the quiet village of Niton on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight Scallop Shell Cottage is a rural idyle.
    Surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty there are bridal pathways at the end of the garden.

    The seaside town of Ventnor is only 10 minutes drive from the cottage or drive along the coast 20 minutes to the stunning beach of Compton Bay.

    For adventure Blackgang Chine Adventure Park is just 5 minutes drive from the cottage. The fun packed park is designed to appeal to the child in all of us! Further afield is Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park.

    Several beautiful coves (Steephill Cove, Castle Haven) and beaches (Ventnor, Shanklin, Compton) are just a short distance from the cottage.

    Travelling 4 miles east takes you to the delightful Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor, well known for its mild climate, sandy beaches and Botanic Gardens.

    15 minutes north of Niton is Godshill, a picturesque village renowned for its thatched cottages.

    Within easy reach of Niton is Carisbrooke Castle, where Charles I was held prisoner before his execution or a little further on in Cowes is Osborne House, Queen Victoria's favourite country retreat. For more historical houses visit Appuldurcombe House or Arreton Manor.

    Ultimately this is the Isle of Wight - much to do and nothing is too far away.
