1 bedroom cottage, second in the row, with double doors that open out from the living room and private rear courtyard
Hedgrow & Fossill Cottage are one bedroom cottages in an idyllic rural location which is quiet and peaceful in the midst of secluded South Isle of Wight countryside, two miles from the coast and 5 minutes walk from The White Horse Inn, a quality Island dining pub. There is also an option to rent another 1 bedroom cottage alongside this, giving 2 bedrooms in total. There are spectacular views of the downs from all around the cottage, with beautiful sunsets. In the fields are dairy cows, a stream, hawthorn hedges and plenty of wildlife. The cottage is excellently situated for walking, cycling and fishing and romantic breaks. There is easy access on to the footpaths directly outside the cottage which join the extensive Stenbury and Worsley trails near Appuldurcombe, or the west wight coastal paths, all providing panoramic views. At close by Nettlecombe Farm (short footpath walk) there are three well stocked fishing lakes (permits available).
A five minute walk leads to historic Whitwell village and dining pub. The White Horse pub is very popular for meals and there is an attractive 700-year old church. Close by is Niton village with post office, food shops and beautiful St Catherine’s Lighthouse. Under ten minutes by car is the pretty Victorian seaside town of Ventnor with its own micro climate offering sandy beaches, sub-tropical botanic gardens and local ale. You can also walk to Ventnor using public footpaths leading straight from the house with spectacular views.
This is an original island stone cottage at the end of three adjoining cottages which are several hundred years old. Restored by National Trust builders, this lovely cottage is tastefully decorated and furnished. You enter into an attractive kitchen with tiled floor, leading on to a pleasant sitting room with a television/DVD and sofa. The kitchen is well-equipped with fitted units, electric oven and hob, microwave, refrigerator with freezer section and washer machine.
Upstairs is an attractive double bedroom and separate bathroom with a bath and excellent overhead shower. At both the rear and the front of the cottage are table and chairs to make most of the early morning and evening sun. Breakfast on the rear patio and a glass of wine at sunset at the front of the property. A car may be parked beside the cottages. Please note access to the cottage is over the fields along a well maintained gravel farm track. The village may be accessed back along the farm track or by public footpath taking approx 5 minute.

"Beautiful relaxing location”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018
Hedgerow Cottage is a sweet little cottage which has been beautifully fitted out by Sarah and Ross. It had everything we needed for a comfortable short break and over a tropically hot weekend, we were able to relax and enjoy the sounds of birds, laugh at the antics of the cows and walk to a super pub in the evenings. There are some lovely walks in the area and Niton and Ventnor are very close. Sarah and Ross are perfect hosts - helpful and friendly but discrete as well. We didn't want to leave and hope one day to return.

Lovely cottage, ideal for two and a dog. Lovely walks from cottage, interesting island to explore. Loved Newport shops and Bembridge beach for dog walking. Would recommend.
Lovely cottage and location
We had a great stay. The cottage has been lovingly renovated to a high standard with lots of thoughtful touches. The weather was wonderful so we were able to sit outside each night enjoying the fresh air and were pleasantly suprised by the good phone signal, netflix and strong WiFi too. Thanks!
Adorable cottage - quiet, private and peaceful - a little haven away from it all!
A wonderful 3 days even though the weather wasn't brilliant - it didn't matter! Just perfect for what we wanted which was getting away from people and life in general and having some quality time together. Beautifully appointed, everything tastefully done and thought out. Loved having the cows come past the door each evening and felt very private. The owners were incredibly friendly and kind and accommodating. A little oasis of calm!
It was lovely to have you staying, glad you enjoyed it so much. You are welcome back anytime.
A wonderful stay in this beautiful get away from it all cottage. Everything you want for a relaxing
The property is beautifully decorated and everything is well maintained. Seating areas to the front and rear are a real bonus. Whitwell is conveniently located for travel around the Island
