Why we've chosen Brookside Cottage, Isle of Wight, UK

This Isle of Wight holiday cottage is located in the centre of the picturesque village of Shorwell, approximately 2 miles from the sea. As the name suggests, Brookside Cottage has a delightful little brook running alongside the garden. Whilst recently modernised, the property dates back to 1700. On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room. The fully fitted kitchen comes complete with range cooker, washing machine / tumble dryer and microwave. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (one kingsize with ensuite, one twin and one bunkbed room) and a family bathroom. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and with double-glazing, gas central heating and a wood burner, is ideal for holidays and short breaks all year round. Wood and smokeless fuel are provided in the winter months.

Guests are welcomed with a hamper from Brighstone Village Shop containing local island produce. A typical hamper will include milk, cheese, butter, biscuits, apple juice, honey, jam, marmalade, cake, eggs, tomato ketchup, muesli, sun-dried tomatoes (items can be swapped on request). Fair trade tea, coffee and sugar is also available in the cottage.

Shorwell nestles in a wooded valley, encircled by hills. The village has three manor houses and many thatched and stone built picturesque cottages. The village has a great pub, The Crown Inn, which dates back to the 16th century. The pub has a lovely trout filled brook running through its garden (the same one as Brookside Cottage, which is directly opposite).

The oldest part of the village is known as Westview and is close to the church of St Peter. The church itself dates back to the 12th century. The village also boasts a post office, refronted in Georgian style. At the steep shute leading out of Shorwell a rustic bridge crosses over the road – perfect for photographs! You will find access to many lovely downland walks in every direction from the cottage.
