  • “A wonderful little cottage in a super location.”

    Managed to do so much in the few days we were there. Unfortunately couldn’t get into the two nearby restaurants so make sure you book ahead.

About the property

Nestled in the beautiful village of St Helens on the Isle of Wight is this cheerful yellow, semi-detached dwelling, Linda Cottage, offering a wonderful coastal escape for five.

Perfect for a couples' getaway or a family of five, Linda Cottage boasts two bedrooms and is within easy reach of shops, pubs and the beach.

After finding a parking spot on the roadside or in the nearby free car park, head through the pretty, enclosed, front patio and into the property.

Discover the lovely kitchen where you can rustle up tasty dishes for the group making use of the excellent appliances, with cream shaker style units and wooden worktops, you can expect to find a charming country style.

Serve up delicious dishes at the dining table in the living/dining room, with bench seating, a sofa and armchair in here to relax on afterwards, and a classic coal-effect electric stove adding further character.

On warm days, open up the patio door from the sitting area out onto the front garden area, with a bistro set here perfect for dinner or drinks alfresco in the sun.

Completing the ground floor is the pretty bathroom where a roll-top bath presents somewhere to delight in a hot soak or enjoy a refreshing shower with the overhead shower.

Head up the steep cottage stairs, holding the rope rail for balance, and discover a romantic sleeping spot within the first bedroom, home to a pretty four-poster double bed and light and airy decoration.

The second bedroom boasts a triple bunk bed, with a double below and a single on top, perfect for accommodating either a couple or two friends.

The village's local shop with a café inside too is just around the corner from Linda Cottage, so any essentials, sweet treats or coffee fixes you need can be found a stone's throw away.

The same can be said of the nearby pub, with St Helens also home to a lovely village green, said to be the second largest in England, and host to cricket and football matches, along with a children's playground.

Walk down to the National Trust's St Helens Duver beach for a lovely day on the shores swimming, hiring paddleboards and kayaks, making sandcastles or even booking a horse ride along the beach.

Book an exciting sea angling excursion with one of the charters down at Bembridge Harbour, or simply delight in admiring the picturesque scenery of the boats bobbing on the water.

Plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops can be found in Bembridge, along with the two National Trust sites of Bembridge Windmill and Bembridge Fort and Downs, both well worth visiting.

The Isle of Wight has many attractions that are within reach including several zoos, perfect for any animal lover, including Isle of Wight Zoo, South Coast Falconry, Monkey Zoo, Amazon World Zoo and Haven Falconry Bird of Prey Centre.

Explore the beautiful Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with plenty of walking, with the island being popular for cycling thanks to the relatively flat terrain, so you can delight in leisurely outings with your loved ones admiring the tranquil scenery.

About the location


Bembridge 2 miles; Ryde 5 miles.

The village of St Helens lies in a coastal position on high ground, on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight, between Bembridge and Seaview. St Helens is a traditional English village, with the village green at the centre of village life, providing cricket and football pitches, a children’s playground and superb views right across Bembridge Harbour and Culver Down. The village also offers superb restaurants, pub, newsagent, Post Office and grocery store. A short walk takes you to The Duver, an NT area of shingle and sand, and once the site of a Royal links golf course. The beach here is very family friendly, with sand and shingle, perfect for making sandcastles and collecting seashells as well as crabbing off the Bembridge Harbour Causeway. There is the popular Baywatch Café, with all the amenities you need for the perfect day at the beach, and stunning views of the Solent and St Helens Fort. The fort was built to protect Portsmouth from a French invasion between 1867 and 1880, and at the lowest tide of the summer, there is a mass walk of up to 2000 people from the beach out to the fort and back again, with driftwood fires and barbecues.
