Accuracy of the listing

  • "The car parking was approximately 100 metres from the accommodation with 3 steps at various points."

    The description should have mentioned this as one of the party had mobility issues and found it difficult to access the property. Also when unloading at beginning of stay and loading at end of holiday was time consuming and tiring for the elderly driver. Please amend the description to highlight this issue.

  • "It was a fair chalet, wouldn't say cottage at all, It was good as a base, but could have been cleaner, the floor didn't appear to have been brushed when we arrived and we had a problem with tiny flies/midges inside, The dining table leg was broken when we got there , but after a phone call it was sorted quickly ,thankyou."

    I would more than likely use again if we were to visit the IOW again at any point

  • "We had a really great time, Drakes cottage had everything we needed (apart from a parasol) and was in a fabulous location for going to the beach."

    We used the cottage as a base for exploring the island but it was also a perfect place for a lazy day. We especially enjoyed the afternoon sunshine on the decking for a cheeky G&T!

The property

On the delightful shores of the Isle of Wight in the Edwardian resort village of Seaview, Drake Cottage offers a charming escape for a family of four.

Enjoy open-plan living, being within a stone's throw of the sea, and being close to all the amenities you need, Drake Cottage is a charming retreat for a classic seaside stay.

Within the open-plan living space, you can relax on the sofas and easy chairs in front of the Smart TV and watch a film together for a quiet evening, with a dining table and chairs and a breakfast bar perfect for home-cooked meals and pit-stop lunches before continuing your activity-filled day.

The kitchen has all you need to rustle up some tasty treats, but with plenty of restaurants and pubs near by you will be spoilt for choice with where to go.

Spend time on your decked area with a picnic bench to perch on with a refreshing drink, an ideal place to enjoy an aperitif before finding a restaurant.

Enjoy the gorgeous views of the Solent and out to Portsmouth and the Spinnaker Tower from Springvale Beach before enjoying a walk in Puckpool Park, home to gardens as well as tennis courts, a children's play area and mini-golf, you can enjoy sunny days here with a picnic.

Take a dip in the waters at Seagrove beach, with gently sloping sands into the clear water, it is a popular site for swimming and other watersports including sailing.

The town of Ryde has a wider selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as museums and galleries to discover.

Appley Beach is another stunning beach with golden sands, and has some of the warmest waters on the island in summer, and it’s bordered by a lovely green park with a children's playground.

There are many other attractions on the Isle of Wight within reach including Amazon World Zoo, Carisbrooke Castle, Monkey Haven and the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, all well-worth visiting.

Enjoy a holiday at Drake Cottage and discover Isle of Wight.

About the location


Ryde 2.6 miles.

Seaview is a small Edwardian seaside village on the north eastern shores of the Isle of Wight, only a 15 minute drive from the superb transport links of Ryde. Seaview is one of the South of England’s most famous holiday destinations, with a reputation of being an upmarket resort. This lovely seaside resort has stunning views out across the Solent, gorgeous golden sandy beaches, a sailing club, boutique shops and many popular restaurants and pubs, such as The Seaview Hotel and The Old Fort. On the coastal footpath towards Ryde just off Springvale is Puckpool Park, an old Victorian Fortification Battery, now with tennis courts, mini-golf and a children’s play area set within its pretty gardens. In the summer, locals and tourists take part in the famous Seaview Regatta, competing in many traditional activities, with races on the beach at Seagrove Bay, rowing in the village’s own unique boats, tug of war, the greasy pole and diving, all concluded at the end of the week with a magnificent firework display. As well as being a coastal village the nearby countryside at Seaview’s Duver is a nature reserve, with frequent visits from the beautiful red squirrel, as well as having an incredible array of bird life. A wonderful Isle of Wight base.
