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 such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

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.
