Welcome to Solent Peek, a lovely comfortable home in Totland on the West Coast of the Island. As the name suggests, there is sea view from the first floor master bedroom and it is just a short walk to the picturesque Totland Bay where there are far reaching views over to the mainland. Solent Peek has a good sized open plan kitchen/dining-room with doors out to a superb garden, a large decked area with outdoor sofas and table and chairs makes the outdoor space a fantastic extension to the living space, weather permitting of course! There is a separate sitting-room which has a cosy feel to it, as the island is a great place to holiday any time of the year. On the first floor there is a bunk-bed room, a double and the master suite with a king sized bed and en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom with bath and fitted shower over also on the first floor. In addition on the ground floor there is a ‘bonus’ room, with table tennis table for family competitions and plenty of space to store bikes if you bought them along or hired them. There is parking for up two cars on the front drive.
Totland Bay is a picturesque sandy beach, ideal for swimming or a beach barbecue with some of the finest sunsets you will see. The Waterfront Restaurant with a new mediterranean kitchen is located at the eastern end of the bay, large picture windows look out to sea where you can dine and watch the sun sink below the horizon. Solent Peek welcomes dogs and with a wealth of walks to choose from your four-legged friend will be very happy indeed. The Headon Warren is one we recommend, a breathtaking walk with splendid views of the mainland and a Bronze Age burial ground, this is an ideal one to choose with younger children as it can be shortened to three miles missing out Alum Bay. The coast line on this western coast of the island is simply breathtaking, take a drive along the military road which is littered with viewpoints to stop and soak up the scenery or take a picnic and explore some of the amazing beaches. Compton Bay along here offers the best surf and facilities in the south of England, so pull on your wetsuit and have a go! Hunting for fossils along this stretch of coast will keep the younger ones happy for hours, a high chance of finding something will add to the excitement. Solent Peek can offer you a fantastic base for your Island’s adventure.
