Lovingly kept, this cosy, comfortable mid-terrace cottage is ideal for families or friends seeking an island holiday.
Pretty front gardens welcome you to Faithfull Cottage and once inside you will find a charming sitting room with a coal effect electric fire.

Outside, the rear garden lawn is the perfect place for the family dog and children to let off steam. The patio has outdoor furniture so you can sit and enjoy al fresco dining from dawn until dusk. Faithfull Cottage has all you need for a relaxing island break.
St Helens is a pretty village on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight with a selection of places to eat, a popular pub The Vine, and a village store for all your holiday essentials. The fabulous beach is a twenty-minute stroll away through pretty woodlands leading to St Helens Duver and the Baywatch café provides all your holiday beach treats such as ice creams and freshly brewed coffee. Indeed, you may decide to have a car free holiday here and not use your car at all! Should you decide to explore further afield, the gorgeous village of Seaview is just a five-minute drive away. There are plenty of options for beaches and families will enjoy Seagrove Bay, a sheltered cove of sand and shingle at low tide, ideal for sandcastle building and rock pooling. A walk along the promenade from Seaview will take you to the eclectic town of Ryde with a good selection of shops and restaurants. A hovercraft runs from Ryde and can take you for a day out on the mainland, or perhaps catch the island train to explore further.
Bembridge is another pretty village just a five-minute drive away. Home to the last surviving windmill on the island, you will also find some fabulous local shops including a fishmonger, bakery and florist. The butchers, Woodfords is renowned island wide for the best meats and there's a good selection of cafes and restaurants should you choose to dine out.
Travel along Military Road for stunning views along the coast and head for West Wight. Freshwater bay has crystal clear waters, coves and inlets, perfect for exploring by kayak or paddle board. The iconic Needles should also be on your list of things to do in the area, and you can take a chairlift to the beach and pick up a speed boat for an up and close view. Totland Bay is another beautiful part of the island and lunch at The Hut is the perfect seaside treat.
