Woodington is a large and very unique house in a spectacular setting on the southern side of the Island. Sitting in its own large grounds with the dramatic Niton cliff to the rear, guests can lounge in the hot tub in total privacy. The sea views are breathtaking from the front of the house and gardens, with several different areas and outdoor furniture to sit and relax in these wonderful surroundings, making this an ideal choice for larger family groups.
The interior has a style of its own, filled with quirky pieces of furniture and some original ornamental fireplaces. There is also a separate games-room with its own fruit machine! The kitchen is to the rear of the property and overlooks the garden, it has a breakfast-bar for four and plenty of space to cook up a storm. There are two sitting-rooms, both with a television so no fighting over the choice of films. The dining-room is a grand and spacious room, everyone can come together and plan the day ahead.
All the bedrooms are on the first floor, some of the stairs are steeper than normal so care is needed at all times, stair-gates are provided. There are four double bedrooms and a twin, the two doubles to the front benefit from the stunning sea views. There is a family bathroom on the first floor with a bath and shower attachment, and a shower-room on the ground floor.
There is access from the kitchen out to the extensive garden at the rear of Woodington, mainly laid to lawn this makes for a fantastic place for the kids to play or afternoon tea on the lawn perhaps? A gravel pathway leads you to the hot tub set back from the house, you can sit under the stars with a glass of wine and while away the evening in this Island idyll.
When you can tear yourself away from your holiday heaven take a fifteen minute stroll to the nearest beach of Woody Bay. Wonderful for a brisk walk or if the sun is shining, take a picnic and enjoy a spot of beachcombing. For a more sandy beach and ideal swimming conditions Shanklin beach is a short drive away, backed by a traditional English seafront promenade there are many pubs and restaurants to choose from for a bite to eat.
The nearest village to Woodington is Niton, a traditional and picturesque village with two great pubs to choose from and a local convenience store. This area is surrounded by some of the best countryside, views and downland walks the Island has to offer.
