About Knowles Farm CottageThis rural escape has an open fire, exposed beams and views of a Victorian lighthouse to love.
Perching on the most-southern tip of the island is this two-bedroom rural hideaway. In your own oasis of calm, you’ll be encompassed by green fields, far reaching sea views and lighthouse. You’ll be pleased to know that the foghorn is no longer in use, so nothing will come between you and the soothing sounds of the sea.
Inside hosts a cosy abode for up to four people. Adding to its charm, an open fire warms the lounge and rustic exposed beams and barn doors run throughout the cottage.
The nearby coastline is a wild and rocky with jutting cliffs, windswept downs and sheltered valleys. But nestling amongst this, you’ll find golden sandy beaches such as Rocken End and Castle Haven.
And for a classic pub lunch, head to the nearby village of Niton which is within walking distance and the seaside resort, Ventnor, can be driven to within 15 mins.
