Merstone Cottages

Centrally located, Merstone is a quaint hamlet at the heart of the Isle of Wight. Staying centrally offers a wealth of benefits as you can get pretty much anywhere on the island in a short space of time. Merstone is four miles from Newport, the largest town on the island, so you’re not far from anything you might need throughout your stay. 

The hamlet plays host to one of the oldest brick structures on the island and the name Merstone appears as far back as the Domesday book, making this spot the oldest named place on the island.

Whilst staying in a holiday cottage here, head out to visit the chocolate box village of Godshill, two miles south, or pack a picnic and visit the golden beaches of Shanklin just four miles south. Shanklin Chine is a great day out for families and there’s a wonderful arts scene to explore in Ventnor along with Ventnor Botanical Gardens.
