Seaview, Ryde, Isle of Wight
You enter the cottage through a stable door into a comfortable living room with open log fire place. The small but well equipped kitchen with a round dining table has French windows leading out to the pretty enclosed garden with a terrace and outside table and chairs. A narrow stair case takes you up to the first floor where you will find a single bed room, a shower room and a double room overlooking the garden.
On the top floor is a twin room, the single beds can be pushed together if necessary. The cottage is only a few metres from the beach and a slip way for launching boats. The beach is dog friendly all year, so ideal if you want to bring your pet. There are wonderful sunsets to be enjoyed from the beach in the summer months and the sea wall provides not only seating to enjoy the views but also a popular walk for those who do not wish to get sandy feet!
Sweet Pea is just a few minutes walk from the Sea View Yacht Club, the village shops and local restaurants. Although small, the cottage is popular with families or friends all year. It is a very charming cottage, full of character, and for those wishing to visit Seaview on the east of the island it is a perfect retreat.
The Island is diamond shape and is easily defined therefore with North, South, East, West and the Centre of the Island. It is approx 14miles x 27 miles so you can drive round it in a day - we often do!! You can only get to the Island by boat, hover craft, plane or helicopter, we can organise anything! Also, it is tidal which means that the views of the tide coming in and out means a constantly changing coastline. The Island is a constant inspiration to those who live here and we are sure to those who visit.
The Island was a Victorian play ground, even good enough for Queen Victoria herself and she built her own magnificent residence, Osbourne House. Dickens and Tennyson both were also inspired by the Island. The Island therefore has some splendid Victorian homes and a wealth of pretty cottages for us to live in and for you to holiday in. Some command fabulous views, be them in land looking over the rolling downs, or around the coast giving them the views of the sea and the air.
The activities therefore appeal to all. A fabulous coast line for stunning beach walks, horse riding and links golf courses. Fabulous walks can be enjoyed inland too with a plethora of wildlife and birdlife to enjoy. Being surrounded by the sea comes with its own activities with sailing, fishing, kayaking, or just lying on your lilo on offer.
