  • “Fovant Cottage was perfect in every way and Bembridge was full of interesting shops, cafes and a lovely beach too.”

    - Allison, September 2021

The property

This delightful cottage rests in the village of Bembridge, on the east coast of the Isle of Wight.

Internally, the cottage boasts a cosy feel with a traditional interior, offering a real home from home vibe.

The kitchen comes well-equipped with a range of modern appliances at hand, inspiring you to whip up a delicious feast.

Gather round the dining table to enjoy these meals, before relaxing in the sitting room with the electric fire.

Ideal for those with limited mobility, there is a double bedroom and bathroom positioned on the ground floor, while the remaining two bedrooms can be found upstairs.

Each bedroom has a range of furniture and lovely views across the surrounding village.

Externally, the property has access to an enclosed courtyard with barbecue and picnic bench, ideal for sitting out in the evening sun.

Less than a mile away is the magnificent Bembridge beach where you can walk along the shore and watch the boats make their way in and out of the harbour.

For the more daring, why not have a go at windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking or deep-sea fishing?

Bembridge has a lively community and offers several independent shops, including a butcher, baker, greengrocer and a fishmonger.

When travelling by car, the whole island can be explored within an hour, meaning that guests of all tastes have something to enjoy with popular attractions such as Ryde, Newport, Cowes and Yarmouth all within 20 miles.

An all-year-round holiday home for families and friends.

About the location


Ryde 7 miles; Newport 11 miles; Cowes 16 miles; Yarmouth 20 miles.

Bembridge sits on the most eastern point of the Isle of Wight, and it is claimed to be the biggest village in England. Bembridge used to be an island in its own right, and until the Victorian era, was a collection of wooden huts and farmhouses, hence Bembridge remains somewhat detached from the rest of the island even today, which adds to its charm. Bembridge is considered to be one of the most upmarket areas on the island and offers a surprisingly busy intertidal sheltered harbour, which is always full of pleasure crafts and fishing boats providing a constant flow of traffic to and from The Solent. From the harbour you will find quiet beaches consisting of sand and pebbles, perfect for swimming, beachcombing and crabbing and in high winds you will see plenty of kite surfing activity. As you walk along Bembridge beach, you will discover the lifeboat station, cafes and the famous Crab & Lobster Inn, as well as the magnificent Culver Cliffs as your backdrop. The village centre offers a good range of small shops, with its award-winning butcher's and 'The Best Dressed Crab in Town' which is situated in Bembridge harbour, you can also sample local produce from the greengrocer's, visit the art gallery and much more; in fact everything you should need while holidaying here.
