About Chert

A chilled-out, light-filled 70s styled home with impressive sea views from its large balcony.

This sleek south island stay will leave you feeling 70s cool. It’s symmetrically sophisticated with laid-back interiors and large glass windows that stream in light from the open seascape. High on a wooded cliff in the quiet residential area of St Lawrence, it’s hard to resist its chilled-out vibe. 

Kick back on its balcony to views of the sea and sounds of the 70s from its record player. Or head to the hottest place on the island, quite literally, Ventnor. The seaside resort has its own microclimate which produces some of the warmest temperatures on the island. 

If surfing is your thing, the south coast is littered with surfing spots, so you’ll be close to the waves. And if you want to venture a little further, you can drive from one end of the island to the other in under an hour and discover its stunning beaches, dinosaur history and natural spectacle, The Needles.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
