Sited on the Southern most tip of the Island overlooking the under-cliff and St Catherine's light house, this property - split in to two unit - has lovely views to the North over farm land and South over the sea. Sitting within a 12 acre field of wild flowers, it is beautifully isolated but still close to attractions and activities. 3 good pubs are within easy walking distance along the round the Island coastal path, that borders the property. The two units can be rented singly or as one (internal lock-off) It is ideal for 2 or 3 families sharing a child friendly holiday or for a family with children, parents and grandparents. High chairs available. A No Smoking policy is in place. We allow 2 behaved dogs only - no sleeping to bedrooms or on furniture, please.The property is wheelchair friendly, as it have wide doorways and is on one level. We supply bed linen and towels. The outside areas have ramps for access. The building has been carefully converted from an old B.T. signal station and we believe, used to house Niton radio. We have put a lot of thought and love into the project, which we hope shows. We have added a games room that has a pool table, small table football and table tennis, table which was finished May 2015
About the Owner
About Melita Cooper
We are a family of 5 living near Chichester. We love the outdoors and space.
Melita Cooper purchased this house in 2006
Why Melita Cooper chose Isle of Wight
We love the Isle of Wight and location of this building. We first viewed it in a thick fog but could still see the huge potential to become a lovely holiday home. At the time it had been redundant for sometime and looked rather sorry for itself. Being on the southern coast of the island it is both isolated and near everything. We have put in a massive amount of work and thought into the units. We hope, and think we have achieved our aim of making them both nice places to stay in for ourselves and others.
What makes this house unique
We like the way there is only one house you can see from the property and that is around a mile away. And yet we are so close to Niton village. Location, location, location....
To book please call us. Let us know what you require, numbers in the party etc. We have a booking form, which we can post or email.
Change over day is Friday. If you are thinking of a two week holiday we could consider other days, out of season. Over the Christmas/New Year period the change over will be Wednesday to Wednesday in 2015

Activity and Interests
The Isle of Wight has some very special beaches. Ventnor is about 5 miles away has a lovely beach of tiny stones. Compton bay is about 8 miles away with its wonderful fossils and sands, best accessed at low tide. Sandown, Ryde and Shanklin are about 10 to 15 miles away and have super beaches. There is a small bay near the house down the Cliff path. It is best at low tide and is approximately a 40 minute walk. The Island is noted for its seaside/ holiday facilities/attractions.
One can travel either by Wightlink from Portsmouth or Red Funnel from Southampton on the car ferry. There is a hover craft (from Clarence Pier, Portsmouth) and foot passenger ferry that leaves Portsmouth Harbour station and comes into Ryde. Niton is about 20 -30 minutes across the Island by car from Fishbourne and East Cowes where the car ferries come in. There is a good bus service on the Island but it is much easier by car if travelling with baggage and children.
The property is 1 mile from Niton, 1 mile from Black gang chine
There is so much on offer on the Island, from walking and cycling routes to funfair and ice skating. There is something for everyone.
