  • “Beautiful cottage, very well equipped, clean and comfortable.”

    Quiet location but very access to other parts of the island and local area. My family and I had a great holiday and it was lovely to 'come home' each night.

The property

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

ST HELENS

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.
