  • “This was a clean and comfortable house to stay in with a wonderful large peaceful garden full of unexpected nooks and crannies.”

    Everything we needed was there and we were nicely placed to visit the island. A large cooking apple tree was a bonus and meant we could make Blackberry and apple crumbles galore with the the windfalls and blackberries from the hedgerows.

The property

A wonderful coast and country family home with spectacular nurtured gardens in the village of Chale on the South West coast of the Isle of Wight.

Traditionally laid out with a lovely country kitchen fitted with all required appliances, with a back door into the garden.

Walk through the snug with its comfortable seating and woodburner into the main spacious sitting room which comes complete with an open fire with large comfortable sofas to help you unwind whilst taking in the breathtaking views.

Adjoining the sitting room is a cosy dining room which comfortably seats eight around a large table and with the original Georgian fireplace and even more great views there is plenty to talk about over dinner.

The utility room comes with a washing machine, a hand basin and drying facilities and has plenty of room to hang coats and dry boots!

There is also an adjoining downstairs cloakroom near to the back door, which opens up on to the garden.

Don’t leave Sweet Briars without taking advantage of the south west views from the conservatory and watch one of the sunsets on this beautiful island.

Upstairs are four generous bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower and all are beautifully decorated to a high standard, with pretty crisp linen and matching soft furnishings.

The family bathroom has superb views of the garden, beautifully fitted with a delightful claw foot bath.

Outside there is a stunning lawn and planted cottage garden with furniture, BBQ and summerhouse.

Chale offers some amazing downland and coastal walks, all within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which can be directly accessed from your front door.

Just down the road from Sweet Briars is the award-winning pub/restaurant The Wight Mouse, sit outside and enjoy a cool drink after your busy day exploring the island and experience some of the most stunning colourful skies as the sun sets over the horizon.

For the more adventurous why not try your hand at some paragliding, or take a short drive along the coast to Brook Beach for some exhilarating kite surfing.

Sweet Briars is perfect all year round for friends and family wishing to relax in the heart of the countryside while being moments from the most picturesque coastline and beaches on the island.

About the location


Ventnor 6.5 miles; Newport 9.5 miles; Yarmouth 13.5 miles; Fishbourne 14.2 miles; Cowes 14.5 miles.

Ideal for those seeking a mix of coast and country, Chale is a picturesque farming village, nestled at the foot of St Catherine’s Down on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The village itself offers an award-winning pub/restaurant with an excellent children’s play area, and breathtaking coastal and downland walks, especially to the 35ft-tall octagonal tower ‘St Catherine's Oratory’, locally known as the Pepper Pot. This medieval lighthouse was built in 1312 and is believed to be one of the oldest in Britain. The area of National Trust land around the Pepper Pot is a walker's and birdwatcher’s paradise, as the birds can be observed at eye level. Outstanding sunsets looking towards The Needles are quite a sight. Nearby you'll discover some of the island’s best sandy beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing and of course fossil collecting, where you might even discover the odd dinosaur footprint or two. Close by is Blackgang Chine, the island's premier family attraction and to the north is Osborne House, the former royal residence of Queen Victoria. Experience royal family life as you tour the nursery and private rooms of Victoria and Albert and their children. Wonder at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments including the sumptuous drawing and dining rooms, and the Indian-inspired Dubar Room. Stunning grounds looking out onto The Solent can be explored via a horse-drawn carriage or on foot.
