Beautifully renovated to a high standard, this charming two hundred-year-old cottage offers a stunning blend of old and new.

One of two traditional cottages, this property is surrounded by beautiful island countryside with views across fields to the coast. Set out on foot or bike to follow the many footpaths and tracks that extend in a variety of directions including to the coast at Wootton Creek, the woods of Briddlesford Copse and Arreton Downs. The local farm shop and restaurant are also within easy walking distance, perfect for stocking up on supplies or enjoying a meal out. Rich in history and nature, there is plenty to see and do in the local area, from visiting the island home of Queen Victoria to enjoying a ride on Havenstreet Steam Railway.


Renovated with great care, this cottage offers a stylish blend of period charm and modern comfort. Prepare meals in the sunny and spacious kitchen area, which features an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and small freezer. The kitchen is open plan to the fantastic lounge/dining area, which has been beautifully presented with stylish armchairs, a cosy rug and occasional lighting. This is a serene and welcoming space in which to relax in front of the TV/DVD while the wood burner roars away in the large inglenook fireplace. Upstairs there is a light and airy king-size bedroom with wonderful open views across fields to the sea, together with a well-equipped bathroom with shower over the bath and WC


Outside, there is a large enclosed garden with table and chairs, beautifully stocked flower beds and a pretty well, which once provided water for the cottages. There is parking for one car in the parking area near the cottage.

Stayed three weeks in January 2020. Very comfortable. Cosy in the evenings in front of log fire. Very secluded away from main roads. Positioned to reach most places easily. Woodmans Arms (has web site) three minutes drive away serving fantastic home made food. Owners Ann & John are fantastic people who went the extra mile to make our stay perfect.

1 Dores cottage was a great place to stay. It really was a cottage in the true sense of the word. The only negative thing about our stay was that the temperatures did not warrant us firing up the wood burning stove in the large fireplace which would have been terrific !
