Overview

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 barbecue. 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, a cafe, 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.

About Mr Tim Burton

I'm a retired lawyer, now a 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

Why Mr Tim Burton chose Isle of Wight

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a lovely stay at such a beautiful spot. Enjoyed "ship watching" from the conservatory and "crow's nest" upstairs. A well-equipped cottage in a lovely location.

A Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

On arrival to the property, we approached the front door with a smile. Behind the door this turns to a grin. What a lovely property, well appointed and a complete delight just taking in that view. TV, DVD, PC not required! Seaview is georgous

Beach themed cottage with brilliant views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in High Tide, our family all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and spent most of the stay either in Seaview or Ryde. High Tide has great views of the Solent across to Chichester cathedral and we all spent a lot of time just looking out to sea and watching the boats go by! It was very relaxing and we used the http://www.ship-tracking.co.uk/ website to find out all of their names and cargo. We arrived on the weekend of the round Isle of Wight yacht race and so had an extra 1500 yachts to observe. We loved the garden with the different levels, patio, decking, summer house and grass, and saw a green woodpecker several times during our stay (we only have the Black, White and Red ones in our garden). We made use of the barbecue and were so lucky with the weather. So what could have made it better? Well nothing really hence the five stars. All in all we couldn't fault our stay and had a great time, the conservatory sofa and chairs were really comfy, the location was brilliant and the beach excellent for finding shells and crabbing. Thanks to Tim and Frances for creating such a welcoming home.

Beautiful cottage, warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

High Tide is a lovely, clean and comfortable cottage with gorgeous sea views. It is very well appointed, with everything we needed for our stay. The owners are very thoughtful, providing extra touches such as a telescope to view the Solent and a welcoming bottle of Isle of Wight wine. They left us good information to make our stay easy, from detailed instructions on how to find the cottage, to when to put out the recycling. The cottage is about 5 minutes walk from Seaview and just a few minutes more to its beautiful, clean beach. We stayed with our 3 boys (15, 12, 8) and spent most of our time on the beach here, or crabbing in the rockpools in Bembridge (15 mins drive). We had a great meal at the Old Fort bar and restaurant in Seaview, but the kitchen at High Tide is also very well equipped. We had a great stay and have already booked a return visit to the cottage.

Lovely, well-equipped house with great sea views

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean, well-equipped house and a welcome bottle of local wine.

It was well suited to our 3 generation family holiday age range 12-67. The local shop on the high street had delicious french sticks, croissants and pan au chocolats that we bought every morning for breakfast and ate them in the lovely conservatory watching the boats and ships go past. We visited Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill, The Needles, Isle of Wight steam railway, Godshill Model Village and Waltzing Waters in Ryde when in rained on the Bank Holiday Monday!

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

The photos accurately reflect the house, which was clean, tidy and very comfortable. The house is well equipped with plenty of little extras that make life a lot easier, for example, a roll of cling film. The communication with the owner was excellent and very friendly, which made all aspects of the booking and stay a lot easier. We all enjoyed our time there and would thoroughly recommend this house to anyone.

Excellent location on IOW

  • 5 of 5

High Tide proved to be as good as it looks on the website. It is well-maintained, comfortably furnished and suitably equipped. The conservatory and decking at the back of the property facilitate inside/outside dining and the views of so many different ships/boats moving in and out of Portsmouth/Southampton are a continual source of interest. The garden was also a safe place for the children to play. It is 5 minutes' walk from the waterfront in a quiet cul-de-sac and I would recommend this property. As a three-generational family of 6 (ages 2 to 67) it suited us very well.

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’.
