  • “Great location to explore the island with the added home from home vibe.”

    Cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Hosts were very helpful with recommendations of what to do and places to eat.

The property

Bugle Cottage is a charming ancient cottage that sits in the village of Carisbrooke, at the heart of the vibrant town of Newport.

This bright and airy dwelling boasting original exposed beams is the ideal location for families or groups of four looking to explore the beautiful Isle of Wight.

Step inside the property and be greeted by the warm and welcoming sitting/dining room, where you relax on the sofas and turn on the TV.

In the well-equipped country kitchen with lovely cream units and immaculate wooden worktops, you will find everything needed to whip together a filling evening meal for the group to enjoy as they gather at the dining table and crack open a bottle of fizz to celebrate a well-deserved break with the family or friends.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and discover two homey single bedrooms boasting marvellous views of the magnificent church and providing the perfect place to escape the excitement and indulge in some quiet time before joining the group later in the evening.

A third bedroom is home to a king-size bed and views of the nearby Carisbrooke Castle, as well as original beams that line the ceilings.

While away the hour with an indulgent soak in the bathtub and admire the contemporary interiors of the bathroom as you grab your toasty towel from the heated rail and make your way back into the bedroom.

Spend quality time in the garden as you dine alfresco and bask in the sunshine before heading out for the day.

Bugle Cottage is conveniently located near to the Tennyson Trail, one of a network of footpaths that cross the Island, which will appeal to ramblers and dog walkers alike.

You can also easily stroll to one of the Island's top tourist attractions, Carisbrooke Castle, where King Charles I was imprisoned during the English Civil War.

Stop by the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and enjoy a scenic stroll along the magnificent Tennyson Heritage Coastline.

It is also on a main bus route if you fancy leaving the car at home and arriving by public transport or just exploring the Island at your leisure from an open-top bus.

Being centrally located, Bugle Cottage is just 20 minutes in any direction from the Island's heritage coastline, sandy beaches and bustling harbours, such as the yachting mecca of Cowes.

About the location


Newport 1.4 miles; Cowes 6.2 miles; Shanklin 10.1 miles

A bustling village resting on the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke can be found settled on the south western outskirts of Newport. Best known for Carisbrooke Castle, a point of interest which has been all of an Elizabethan artillery fortress, a king's prison and a royal summer residence, this village is a wondrous base, with a variety of amenities to cater to all tastes. The village's medieval parish church of St. Mary's is a talking point; once part of a Benedictine priory, established by French monks in around 1150, there's so much to explore here. Within the village there are two pubs; the Victorian-era pub and inn of The Waverley and the Grade II listed The Eight Bells, along with a Turkish Restaurant, Italian restaurant and a local shop. Feed the ducks at the Carisbrooke Millpond, or take a trip into the vibrant county town of Newport where you can take a stroll along the River Medina before exploring its wider range of eateries settled amongst its Museum of Island History and art centre, or explore the outskirts of the town to find the 88 acres of countryside in the form of Robin Hall Country Park, with a plethora of walking routes and a scatter of family-friendly attractions to be discovered. Venture into the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for even more stunning scenery, as well as the wonder of Compton Beach walled by sandstone cliffs and offering a scenic experience like no other. To the north of the village you can also find the coast of Cowes, with even more wonderful beach walks, independent shops, a golf course, various museums and historical landmarks, it's well-worth a visit. Sitting at the centre of the Isle of Wight, the village of Carisbrooke is ideally positioned for exploring the many attractions that the area has to offer, with easy links to Portsmouth for a day out with a difference.
