  • "St Michaels House is so welcoming and cosy."

    Sally the owner was there to greet us on arrival. She had made us the most amazing cake. There was also milk and tea and coffee so we could sit and relax with a slice and a cuppa after our journey The cottage is a bit smaller than it looks on the photos but so homely and comfortable.The dog proof garden was great for our little houdini aka Ted. The weather was not brilliant but it was nice to settle back in the comfort of the cottage after a day out. St Helens is a good base for seeing the island and The Vine pub serves some lovely pub grub. We would certainly recommend St Michaels House and look forward to staying there again in the future.

    Thank you so much, Sue, for your kind review and it was a pleasure meeting all three of you and, of course, Ted. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. I shall look forward to greeting you again and hope that the weather will be a great deal kinder to you. Property Owner

    The garden is lovely and safe for dogs (and children if you have them) and I imagine it is a wonderful place to sit with a glass of something on a summers evening although we were unable to sample that, it being October! St Helens itself makes a good base from which to explore the Isle of Wight. We had a superb holiday despite the stormy weather at times and will most definitely be back - we still have walks to complete!

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Philippa. It was a pleasure meeting you both and Poppy, of course. I hope your friends enjoyed their few days. We will very much look forward to greeting you again at some point in the future, hopefully in less inclement weather! Property Owner

    Honestly cannot fault it at all. Sally was there to welcome us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the cottage and told us some history of the property. She had even baked us a cake and put a pint of milk in the fridge so we could have a cup of tea whilst we settled in. All bed linen, towels, etc were included. Also little things like hairdryers, soap, and washing up liquid which most places always overlook. The house was lovely and clean and very cosy. The garden is a great size if you have inquisitive dogs and/or children. Very pet-friendly. Dog beds, towels, blankets, water bowls, and treats were all provided which was a nice touch. I managed to break my ankle on the first day of the holiday by falling down a pothole on the causeway. Sally was lovely and offered us aids such as a wheelchair, shower seat, and bath seat in order to make our stay more comfortable. She also gave us some ideas of places to visit which were accessible. I honestly cannot think of a single bad thing to say about the whole week. Even the weather was good for Halloween/Bonfire Night week. Lovely host and lovely accommodation. We ventured out to Appley park which is a must-do for anyone who wants a walk along the coast and also through woodland etc. And also the walk that Sally recommends when you check-in (Just watch out for potholes ;) ). Also busy bees garden centre is right opposite the big Tesco and a must-do. Especially if you visit when their Christmas shop is there. It is a beautiful place to go and visit. We will definitely be coming back next year once we have booked annual leave. Thank you so much!!! <3 x

We loved our stay here and will be back as it was our first time on the isle of wight, I think we struck gold and even though we fully explored the whole island we fell in love with Bembridge, from the lovely seafood at both the floating seafood cafe restaurant (no dogs inside but allowed on the deck) in the harbour, and the Baywatch Cafe which was dog friendly inside and out.

Bembridge 2.3 miles.

Located with the old English village of St Helens is this punchy pink property; St Michael’s House, a wonderful detached property ideal for families or a group of friends looking for a tranquil treat on the Isle of Wight, you can even bring the dog along for a coastal adventure!

The house features a lovely large sitting area, fit with a gas fire that looks like a woodburner, it adds to the quirky character that runs throughout the property, with ample seating and large bay windows overlooking the back garden, it’s the perfect place to watch woodland nature no matter the time of year.

Head up the staircase within the sitting area and into the three bedrooms; a double, a twin and a single, all providing ample wardrobe space, so you can be prepared for all of the indecisive weather choices of the Isle of Wight.

In the mornings, be sure to head to the kitchen to prepare a wonderful breakfast to keep you going through your day of exploration, in the summer months head to the back garden with your coffee and sit amongst the beautiful flower beds while the dog gets his morning exercise.

St Helens is a lovely residential area, scattered with places to eat and extremely close to the coast, take a walk across the beachfront before heading to the Hungry Bear for a bite to eat.

If you’re after coastal cuisine, we recommend The Best Dressed Crab, right on the seafront, it offers wonderful seafood for you to take away whilst you explore your surroundings.

To get a closer experience of the seas, be sure to head to Bembridge Marine or Harbour Office, where you can hire boats to take to sea, or for the more advanced water lover, check out the yacht and sailing clubs.

Shanklin Chine is a must see whilst in the area, just a short drive away, this wonderful tourist attraction offers glorious waterfalls, walkways, and a heritage centre where you can find out about the history of the area.

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.

  • Off-season
