About the property

Peaceful location

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 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 James & Melita Cooper

We are a family of 5 living near Chichester. We love the outdoors and space.

James & Melita Cooper purchased this house in 2006

Why James & Melita Cooper chose Niton

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....

Herrliche idyllische Lage, großzügige Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Juni 2017 für 11 Tage im Morse Cottage. Besonders gut hat uns die absolut ruhige und idyllische Lage gefallen. Im Spielezimmer kann man Billiard, Tischtennis und Kicker spielen. Die Wohnung ist sehr groß - Kinder haben hier auch bei schlechtem Wetter genug Platz zum spielen.

Von dem Costal Path, der direkt an das Grundstück angrenzt, kann man die herrliche Aussicht genießen und direkt oberhalb der Klippen spazieren gehen. Niton ist zu Fuß in 20 Minuten erreichbar. Hier hat man auch Gelegenheit Lebensmittel einzukaufen.

Niton ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt um die umliegende Gegend zu erkunden, da es sehr zentral gelegen ist. Toll ist auch die gute Beschilderung der Wanderwege (Path).

Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

Car: necessary


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 30-40 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

Further Details:

There is so much on offer on the Island, from walking and cycling routes to funfair and ice skating. There is something for everyone.
