September Cottage is an excellent, family-friendly holiday home with an attractive kitchen and cosy sitting-room. It's easy to imagine curling up on the sofa in front of the wood-burner, or in the summer months, taking your breakfast outside to dine al fresco whilst the little ones play on the lawn. This part of the Island is free from light pollution, offering excellent views on a clear night for budding stargazers. You'll find September Cottage on the south west coast of the island, near to popular surfing spot Compton Bay and a two minute walk away from Brook Beach, which is great for fossil hunting. If you can tear yourself away, head over to Freshwater and take a walk over the glorious Tennyson Down and do make time to call in at the Dimbola Museum - there's usually an exciting exhibition to be found there, after all this was the home of Julia Margaret Cameron, the celebrated Victorian photographer.
