SEASIDE RETREAT WITH STUNNING SEA VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Seaview - 'High Tide'

3 bedroomed cottage to sleep 6 in the charming seaside village of Seaview

'High Tide' is a delightful three bedroomed seaside home with loggia and decked terrace, overlooking the Solent. Located in the charming seaside village of Seaview, on the Island's east coast, the cottage is an ideal retreat for a family beach holiday, and for everyone who loves sailing, walking or just relaxing in 'a gentler world' (The Daily Telegraph). High Tide is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of Seaview village. At the end of this short road is the former Seagrove Manor House; and there is a recreational area where children can let off any remaining steam after their day on the beach. A footpath from the Manor House leads down to Seagrove Bay and onto Priory Bay, perhaps the best beach on the Island.

‘High Tide’ has been extended and refurbished into a delightful, ‘New England’ style, seaside home. Its rooms are fresh and light, and it is finished to a high standard. The ground floor comprises a large sitting room with a solid-fuel fire, opening into the loggia. Here one can either watch the freesat TV or all the activity on the busy Solent. Extensive sea views are also offered by the conservatory/dining area, where six can eat and then relax in comfort, overlooking the large enclosed garden with two paved terraces and a barbeque. The conservatory opens onto a decked terrace, where al fresco meals can be enjoyed whilst watching ocean shipping pass to and from Southampton.

There is a spacious and well equipped kitchen; and a utility area, with its own entrance for those returning damp and sandy from the beach. A shower-room is handily situated off the utility area; and on the ground floor there is also a twin bedroom and a bathroom.

Upstairs, either side of a third loo, there is a large twin bedroom and double bedroom, each with a washbasin and stunning sea views.

The centre of the village, which retains all of its Victorian charm, is only a short stroll away, as are sandy beaches, crabbing rocks and public slipways for sailing. The village centre has some useful shops (including one selling fresh croissants), an award-winning restaurant and an excellent sea-front pub.

The Isle of Wight is an all year round destination, with some of the best weather in the country. This makes it not only a favourite for beach and sailing holidays, but also those who like to walk, ride, cycle, bird-watch or visit attractions for children or places of historic interest. Much of the Island is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; and it hosts the UK’s largest walking festival.

I'm a retired lawyer, now writer, who has been coming to Seaview since the early 1960s. My parents met when they were on holiday in Shanklin and my wife, Frances, went to school in Ryde. So the Island has always been a special place for us.

Mr Tim Burton purchased this cottage in 2001

When our children were growing up, High Tide was perfect: it's a short, safe walk to the beach, the rec and the village. It is equally attractive now it is just Frances and me. From our peaceful terrace, with a cool glass of local white wine, we watch the yachts and ships go by on the Solent - and look forward to introducing grandchildren to High Tide and the Island.

A wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 out of 5
High Tide was a fabulous property, spacious and yet still warm and welcoming, very well kept and fully equipped. Our two girls, 6 & 8 loved playing in the house and garden so much we had to drag them out each day. The short walk to the beach meant we could pop down there early evening with nets (to fish in the rock pools) or the cricket bat etc and get some refreshing sea air even on days we'd been out sightseeing. Before you set off to the beach with your picnic check the tide times as the sea comes right up to the walls. The views from the elevated property over the sea are spectacular and it is so relaxing watching the ships going back and forth. The village has all the essentials, including a good restaurant at the Seaview Hotel just a few minutes walk away.

Great place with a great view

  • 4 out of 5
The house looks exactly like the photo's on the website. We really enjoyed our stay on the Isle of Wight. It's a great Island, lots of things to do. We went with our child, he likes his own bedroom and the living room to play in. The garden is in fact even bigger than they appeare to be in the photo's. We had a great holiday!

Wonderfully clean, contempory welcoming house!

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived to a very welcome bottle of local wine in a beatifully presented house with superb views! The boys (10 & 13 yrs) loved their room upstairs with their own TV and sofa ( No adults hogging the remote!) Grandma could read in the sunroom while Dad sat on the terrace with his paper...more than enough space to escape each other when required and very comfy lounge to gather in the evening in!!! Excellent acces to the beach via the main village and the path past footy field!! Loved waking up to watch the 'traffic' from my bed,( Some of those cruise ships are ENORMOUS!!) We would highly recommend High Tide for both those who wish for a peacful retreat or active families! It caters more than adequately for all.

The Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at High Tide and appreciated the spacious accommodation, excellent amenities, stylish decor and fabulous views, particularly watching the cruise ships and yachts passing by from the conservatory and terrace. The location was great - ten minutes walk along a footpath, past a field with donkeys and geese, to a lovely beach and five minutes to the centre of Seaview with the Post Office, grocery shop, etc. High Tide was especially convenient for our family group of three generations. We have already booked for next year!

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We had a beautiful bank holiday weekend at High Tide. The weather was lovely and the cottage was the icing on the cake. High Tide is clean, welcoming and very comfortable. The conservatory and the views were a real bonus. There was everything we needed and It felt like home away from home. We will definitely be booking a return visit.

Seaview is renowned for sailing. As well as a leading yacht club, the village has a number of public slipways, which makes it an ideal location for messing about in boats. The village is also a centre for other water sports including windsurfing, water skiing and fishing.

The beaches at Seaview are perfect for a traditional seaside holiday. There is sand for building castles, rocks from which to go crabbing and, at low tide, rock pools for shrimping. Priory Bay, possibly the best beach on the Island, is just a 15 minute walk away from ‘High Tide’, along a peaceful footpath.

In recent years, the Island has attracted avid foodies. It has everything from fine dining to beach cafes, many featuring locally produced meat, fish, vegetables, cheeses and wines. The nearest award winning establishment, The Seaview Hotel and Restaurant, is just a short stroll away from ‘High Tide’.
