Sunbeam Cottage is a bright and sunny pet friendly holiday in the Isle of Wight. A home in a beautiful rural location. Set on a leafy lane at the foot of Tennyson Down on the Isle of Wight in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with wonderful views, it is pet friendly - the garden is fully enclosed to a height of 3ft (1m), it is excellent for walking and cycling with lovely beaches and a pub with good food close by.
The interior of the dogs allowed cottage at the Isle of Wight is cosy and comfortable. The bright dining area or the sunny seats by the patio doors allow you to enjoy your meal with a lovely view of the garden or if you prefer to eat outside there is a sheltered patio with table and chairs. If you don't fancy cooking, the pub is just a five minute walk up the lane and has good food. The garden stretches out towards the wooded slopes of the down.
You can sit at the picnic bench with a drink in the evening, watching the sun go down and perhaps see an owl swooping over the field, a badger digging for worms or a red squirrel on the bird feeder. The Isle of Wight has many walks with spectacular views, Sunbeam Cottage is close to the Coastal Footpath and you can walk along the down to Alum Bay and the Needles or to Freshwater Bay and from there to a network of trails that cover the whole Island.
There are several beautiful beaches nearby, Freshwater Bay golf course is just down the road and the cottage is a convenient base for visiting Island attractions such as Blackgang Chine, the Steam Railway, Osborne House or Carisbrooke Castle.
When we first saw Sunbeam Cottage we fell in love with the location, we've been here twelve years and we still find the views breathtaking. It seems our visitors agree - Little Moon Cottage has been so popular that we have decided to let Sunbeam Cottage next door for the summer this year. The cottages sit on a leafy lane at the foot of Tennyson Down with woodland to the front and rolling countryside to the rear. The gardens stretch out towards the wooded slopes of the down in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The downs are owned by the National Trust, so you can walk wherever you like from Alum Bay and the Needles to Freshwater Bay and from there to a network of trails that cover the whole Island.
Dogs are very welcome at Little Moon Cottage and at Sunbeam Cottage too, the gardens are fully enclosed to a height of 3ft (1m) and the area is perfect for those all-important short walks, perhaps ending with a meal at the pub which is a five minute stroll up the lane from the cottage. In the evening we often sit at the picnic bench with a drink, watching the sun go down. Bats flit silently overhead and sometimes we see an owl swooping over the field (while we're on the subject of wildlife; rabbits, foxes and badgers dig up the lawn and red squirrels plunder the bird feeders!)
