    “The accommodation was great, in a fantastic location, and we had a really good time, there were a few small drawbacks which I wanted the owners to be aware of.”

    The directions were a bit confusing and could easily be made simpler, I'd be happy to help re write if helpful? In the bathroom there were some fairly obvious hairs from previous occupants, and at four am one morning we were woken by persistent scratching which sounded like rodents. Lastly, I wonder whether it might be possible to install a proper shower without too much cost? Having said that it really was a lovely setting, I just wanted to pass on the feedback.

The property

Wroxall 0.7 miles.

The Gate House once served as the ticket office for visitors to the nearby Appuldurcombe House close to the charming Isle of Wight village of Wroxall.

Providing snug accommodation for two people, this property could be the perfect romantic getaway for you and your loved one.

Engulfed by 300 acres of soothing parkland, this stone-built cottage rests all on the ground floor.

Be welcomed in by the homely living/dining room, graced with a TV and a cosy sofa to curl up on with the enticing woodburner ablaze.

The king-size bedroom lies adjacent, immaculately finished with refreshing white décor and splendid views of the surrounding park.

The compact kitchen is uplifted by stunning metro tiles and leads towards a classy, white family bathroom which concludes the accommodation.

To the front of The Gate House sits a wonderful bench in full view of the pleasant scenery around this home-from-home.

Take your dog for a stroll around the 300 acres of woodland where you can admire the baroque-style Appuldurcombe House.

Wroxall village is a lovely walk away where you can find a highly-rated food pub and a handy shop for your daily essentials.

Some of the island's most popular spots are nearby; Ventnor and Shanklin both sit on the coast and provide wonderful days out with their range of amenities and fabulously sandy beaches.

A fantastic base for your well-deserved relaxing getaway.

About the location


Ventnor 1.5 miles; Shanklin 3 miles

This pretty village sits just two miles from the south coast of the Isle of Wight, Wroxall itself along with the surrounding area offers something to suit every taste. In the village there is a well-respected gastropub, The Star Inn, as well as a convenience store. Here you can also find a Donkey Sanctuary to experience something different. Hidden away in acres of stunning woodland is the Appuldurcombe House, a historical landmark well worth a look. The seaside resort of Ventnor is just a short drive away and offers everything that you could ask for from a range of fabulous amenities, stunning botanical gardens and a sandy beach for you to enjoy. You can reach here, and nearby Shanklin by bus from Wroxall itself. The whole of the island is easily accessible by car as it is only around 25 miles wide, meaning that you can visit the Isle of Wight AONB and the Hamstead Heritage Coast with ease for your dose of fresh country air.
