Enjoy fantastic walks in-land or along the coastline from this modern single-storey property, just 3 miles from Yarmouth.

These single-storey terraced properties and delightful Grade II listed thatched cottage are located in the scenic village of Wellow, less than 3 miles from the quaint harbour town of Yarmouth and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the western side of the Isle of Wight. Rossiter’s Cottage (ref PTTS) dates back in parts to the 1750s, and lies adjacent to the friendly owner’s home. It offers a spacious twin bedroom on the ground floor with a downstairs toilet on the same level for a comfortable stay for guests with restricted mobility. A warm welcome awaits you at this super property which has many personal, thoughtful touches throughout and which has a large lawned enclosed garden. A new development for 2018, each of the other four properties at Rossiter’s Vineyard Barn (refs UKC3208, UKC3209, UKC3210 and UKC3211) take their name from grape varieties once grown in the vineyard here. They have a spacious open plan living area with beautiful wood floors, feature beams and walls against a crisp white painted background. Externally each has a decked courtyard apart from Madeline Angevine, which has a small patio with a hot tub for relaxing in.

There is a part-time post office service within the grounds and nearby is the Alpaca Farm. The sailing town of Yarmouth is just a 5-minute drive or a 15-minute cycle ride, the sailing town of Cowes is just a 20-minute drive. There is a designated cycle route close by, and many scenic walking routes too, including the Dinosaur Trail, Tennyson Trail and Treasure Trail. There is a choice of challenging off-road bridleways, peaceful byways and level, purpose-made tracks running along former railway lines. You can even take on the full 66-mile ‘Round the Island Route’, as used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee.

Close by Colwell Bay offers spectacular views across the Solent to mainland England, with clear, calm waters and gently sloping sand and shingle, an ideal beach for swimming. Or follow the coastline and enjoy a stroll along to Totland Bay, where you can find a bar, restaurant and a café to try the exquisite seafood and experience some of the finest sunsets. For surfers and kite surfing enthusiasts, Compton Bay a short drive away with a 2-mile stretch of contrasting sands, with rolling seas, and a stunning backdrop of multi-coloured sandstone cliffs. It’s also a great place to go fossil hunting at low tide. The Needles is a short distance away to the west, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Why not visit Queen Victoria’s holiday residence, Osborne House, or Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK?
