Single-storey property offering attractive accommodation for four guests, boasting beautifully designed contemporary-style gardens, located just one mile from the Isle of Wight’s south coast.

This property is located on a tranquil country lane just outside the coastal village of Brighstone on the Isle of Wight’s south coast. This attractive village has a handy shop, a welcoming pub, and even a small museum dedicated to the history of the village and the lifeboat men who have lived there. The local beach is situated one mile from the cottage and is a great place to enjoy waterfront walks, whilst the excellent sandy beach at Compton is located just four miles to the west and is popular with families, swimmers, fishermen, and surfers.

This single-storey property offers plenty of space for guests to enjoy a relaxing holiday, with the heart of the house being the comfortable lounge. This room has a bay window which overlooks the property’s pretty front garden and features a grand piano, cosy wood burner, TV, and Blu-ray player. A step from the lounge leads down to the conservatory dining room, which in turn has another step leading up to the kitchen which is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. The first of the property’s bedrooms is a delightful double room which not only offers an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC, but also patio doors which open onto a charming decked terrace. The second room, meanwhile, is a light-filled twin room, near to which the bathroom has a raised free-standing bath and WC.

The property’s outside space has been particularly well designed to offer several attractive seating areas which have been finished in a sleek, contemporary style. To the front of the property there are steps up to a raised decked terrace, beyond which there is a pretty summerhouse, perfect for relaxing over drinks and a good book. To the rear of the property, a raised decked patio is accessed through both of the bedrooms and is thoughtfully furnished with tables, outdoor sofas, and a swinging chair. There is parking on the driveway and in the garage for two small to medium-sized cars. Please note, that 5 steps lead from the drive up to the front of the bungalow, and there are several internal steps between rooms once inside.

Comfortable, clean, very well equipped and stylish - lovely pictures! Particularly liked the sun deck with sea view and summer house.

This was our second visit to Wagtails and was as good as we remembered if not better. Great location for walks up onto the Downs or down to the coast. Would definitely go back again.

Set in the most picturesque part of the island with stunning views just a short walk up the lane.Plenty of walks for dogs.Very peaceful setting.Would definitely book again.

This was our second visit to the island & we 'discovered' Brighstone last year. The cottage is ideal for a short walk to the adequate village shops & also for a variety of walks. Outside seating was well catered for & on a wet day a large CD collection was available.

Beautiful cottage, lovely furnished and decorated, very spacoius and comfortable. It has everything you could need and much more. A bottle of bubbly and some essentials on arrival are very nice touch. Beautiful views and lovely area but bit remote so a car is a must or get ready for lots of walking.

A great property and holiday, our 2nd visit to Wagtails.
