Middle Lodge is a beautiful 1860s, stone-built, Victorian holiday home set in a mature enclosed garden on the edge of Ryde on the near-east side of the Island. It would be ideal for a large family or a group of friends traveling together.
While the outside of the house is pure period, the inside offers modern minimalism with a generous dash of contemporary comfort. The leafy private garden and spacious shaded patio make this a lovely place for a family with children to relax and enjoy nature without going far afield. However, just beyond the grounds of Middle Lodge is Appley Beach; famous for its golden sands, it really is the perfect coastal playground for both young and old alike.
On the ground floor of this spacious holiday home you will find a large kitchen and a bright, inviting dining room just beyond. There is also a good-sized sitting room and a smaller snug room, both with plenty of comfortable furnishings and large televisions.
The bedrooms are found on the first and lower ground floors. On the first floor there are three bedrooms; one with a super king bed and another with a king bed, both with ornamental fireplaces, as well as a twin room. This floor also has a large bathroom with a corner bath and fitted shower. On the lower ground floor where the sleeping quarters continue, there is a bright spacious bedroom with a king-sized bed and another with twin beds. There is shower room with a walk-in electric shower, as well as a utility rom on this floor.
Middle Lodge is situated between Ryde and the village of Seaview. The Dell Café, a popular beachfront eatery is just moments from your doorstep. We recommend that you get there early so you can claim a table on the sea wall and enjoy the sweeping views across the Solent, along with your coffee and croissant. If you are in the mood for fine dining, then look no further than Three Buoys, again just minutes from Middle Lodge. Expect beautifully prepared seafood and stunning views across the sea. The larger town of Ryde, a 15-minute walk away, has everything you are likely to need while visiting the Island. Along with lots of independent retailers, you will also find a Co-op, Boots, and WH Smiths. Not far in the other direction is the picture postcard village of Seaview. Here you can enjoy a small number of cafes, a seafront pub and the award-winning restaurant inside the Seaview Hotel. Watching the sailboats that pepper the water in and around Seaview is a delightfully relaxing way to spend part of an afternoon. The old saying "location, location, location" certainly applies when it comes to lovely Middle Lodge.
