The property offers beautiful living space inside and out with a conservatory for the cooler days and a seascape garden for the sunny ones! Relax on the private decking, or sip a glass of wine whilst watching the busy harbour at work. The living space is open plan and a wonderful space to relax in, there is also a modern kitchen and two well appointed bedrooms. Guests have their own car and boat parking with a private slipway to Bembridge Harbour.

The Retreat sits between Bembridge Harbour and St Helens Duver. There are sandy beaches, sand dunes, rock pools and coastal woods all within a small area. The Duver was originally a Victorian golf course with royal patronage, but now it’s a wildlife haven and a lovely place to relax or gently wander. Just a short walk away, the Baywatch cafe overlooks the sea where you can enjoy a glass of wine and a dish of the local seafood. From your doorstep there are many picturesque walks to discover including Brading Marshes. Tackt-Isle Adventures is at the end of your drive which offers kayaking, bike hire and many other activities.
