This picturesque, Island Stone cottage is hidden away on The Undercliff between St Lawrence and Ventnor, on the south coast of the Isle of Wight.
As you step out of your car, you will feel a sense of calm at the sheer beauty and utter tranquillity of your surroundings.
Inside, Lisle Combe Cottage is full of original character and charm, with beamed ceilings throughout the ground floor and stunning views from the spacious dining room, sitting room and kitchen.
The kitchen is contemporary and has been cleverly designed to complement the many features of the original cottage.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both with stunning coastal views.
The larger bedroom has a super king-size bed, with the zip/link function of becoming two singles, while the other houses one adult single bed and one suitable for a child.
The garden is private and extremely pretty, with mature shrubs and trees all around.
Look out towards the horizon and you will see the green pastureland giving way to the bluest of seas, where shoals of fish glisten in the sun.
The cottage is a short walk from the wonderful Ventnor Botanic Garden, which benefits from The Undercliff’s Mediterranean climate, enabling many varieties of worldwide subtropical and temperate plants to thrive here.
As well as having a very popular café/restaurant, the gardens hold many exhibitions and events throughout the year.
Just a 15-minute walk along the coastal path will bring you to the island’s hidden treasure, Steephill Cove, where you can swim safely and stroll along its sand and shingle beach.
Watch the fisherman launch their boats, or sit on the beach enjoying a crab sandwich, while watching some of the islands most spectacular sunsets.
A wonderful cottage, perfect for families exploring the Isle of Wight, all year round.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area.

A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight.
