Whitwell, Isle of Wight – Brook Lodge

This lovely one-bedroom single-storey cottage in Whitwell, on the Isle of Wight’s south coast, is nestled amid impressively large gardens and offers sufficient accommodation for two guests.

There is one shallow step which leads up to the front door of this detached single-storey cottage, and directly into the open-plan lounge/diner. This comfortable room has a choice of seating from which to enjoy the TV/DVD at the end of a busy day, whilst the dining table sits between the lounge area and the doorway which leads through to the kitchen. This well-equipped room has everything that guests will need to prepare all their favourite dishes including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

Meanwhile, the bedroom is a calm double room with its own TV, making it ideal for watching late-night television. On request, an extra guest can be accommodated on the couch bed in the lounge for an additional fee. The bathroom includes a bath, as well as a separate shower cubicle and a WC.

The lounge’s patio doors open immediately into the garden, where guests will find a pleasant patio area with chairs and sun loungers overlooking the generously-sized lawns bordered by mature shrubs and fruit trees. One vehicle can be parked off-road.

Sorry, no dogs
