This charming and characterful coastguard cottage is situated in Fishbourne just a few metres from the sea and The Fishbourne pub, the perfect holiday location! Suitably convenient for the ferry, around the corner, you can be settled in the garden and enjoying a glass of wine within minutes. There is parking for two cars to the front of the cottage.
The ground floor has a spacious entrance hall opening either end to the sitting/dining-room and the kitchen/breakfast-room. A stable-door from the kitchen leads out to the fully enclosed patio at the rear. With outdoor seating and a raised decked area with an additional bistro table, there is plenty of space to make the most of the Island sunshine. Guests should be aware the ferry is within sight and sound of the cottage, although this is unobtrusive.
The sitting/dining-room is at the front of the cottage with a picturesque view out to the Fishbourne Green. A very large tree takes centre stage with a tree seat to take a minute and enjoy the view of the sea. The living-area is cosy and inviting with a wood-burner for extra warmth when needed.
All three bedrooms are on the first floor, two twin bedrooms and a double bedroom with en suite shower-room. There is an additional family bathroom with roll-top bath to enjoy a nice long soak after your day exploring the Island.
The Fishbourne pub is a few minutes’ stroll away, where you can relax and look out across the Solent whilst you dine on the large patio. Alternatively the inside is warm and welcoming, serving quality food and wines in a relaxed pub environment. Opposite the pub a footpath takes you to Quarr Abbey, an ideal cycle route for those wanting to avoid the road which carries on to the nearby town of Ryde. Quarr Abbey is home to a small group of Benedictine monks, situated on a site of outstanding natural beauty between countryside and seaside and has a rich heritage of nine centuries of monastic presence. The tea and farm shop are in an idyllic setting, perfect for tea and cake in the dappled sunshine.
This Classic Cottage can offer a fantastic place to enjoy the Isle of Wight, nowhere is too far away and you can end your days with a hearty meal at the pub before you return to your cosy retreat.
