About Old Church LodgeA pretty Victorian cottage in its own walled garden, within walking distance to the beach.
This delightful two-bedroom Victorian stone cottage is perfect for a stay close to the beach. The living room is centred towards an open fire and the newly refurbished kitchen offers a bright space for cooking.
It sits within its own walled garden with a shady patio area to the rear and is within walking distance to the beach and village of St Helens Duver. Here you’ll be able to explore its sand dunes, rock pools and coastal woods.
A 10 minute drive to the south will take you to the island’s only surviving windmill, Bembridge and a little further still will see you at Culver Downs, a chalk down with magnificent seascapes.
