Positioned above the cliffs looking over the sea. If you are looking for a retreat away from the madness of modern life this is the right place for you. You can of course come alone but it is always more fun with 9 extra people and your dog to enjoy this amazing location! Recently refurbished Coastguard Cottage is awaiting visitors to create wonderful memories together.

As you enter from the lovely refreshed courtyard the homely feel of Coastguard cottages is immediate. with the kitchen on your left and the living dining area on the right, there is an open fire. Please make use of the wood in the store. Further through the house and you have access down one small step into the only ground floor bedroom, perfect for those struggling with stairs. There is also a toilet on the ground floor.

Upstairs is the arrangement of 3 well-proportioned bedrooms. The Master with its own en suite and breath-taking views over the cliffs, then the second bedroom also with an en suite and the same view. The third bedroom upstairs is the kids’ room with 2 bunk beds and accommodation for 4, looking over the courtyard. There is also a family bathroom on this floor.

The outside spaces have been well equipped with modern but rustic furniture. In the sheltered courtyard there is a huge table ready for a banquet and a built in BBQ, which you are welcome to use, please leave it in a respectable state though.

The back garden is an amazing place to be on a sunny day. Sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy this unique space, the comfy pallet sofas and the sound of crashing waves many feet below you is really magical.

Atherfield is a breathtaking location with clifftop views. The perfect get away from it all place. A car is recommended, however if you want to take the sustainable travel choice there is a bus from Ryde bus station called the Island Coaster. Please check times with Southern Vectis the bus operator on the island first.

There is the opportunity to walk, ramble and cycle from Coastguard Cottages but if you just want to relax and enjoy the sound of breaking waves down on the nearby beach there is nothing more relaxing than sitting on our comfy pallet furniture and listening to the sound of nature!

It was a pleasure staying in the coastguard cottage. It was private and secluded. Just what we really wanted for the group that travelled with us. It was absolutely amazing on that side of the island. We will definitely come back and book through your company. It was also a pleasure liaising with Shannon. She was very helpful and had a pleasant personality. See you soon.

Many thanks for a lovely stay at Coastguards cottage. Many positives! The house was in the perfect position on the cliff path with spectacular views. Also steeped in history. It was clean and tidy and the upstairs was especially bright and clean with comfortable beds and bedding. Good amount of equipment in the kitchen, everything could want for a comfortable stay. Loved the touches like the dog blankets in the lounge, beautiful open fire and great outside seating area with comfy cushions. Wonderful place to stay and we'll be back! Plus I should add you were so accommodating and helpful in organising our stay. I will certainly recommend you!

What a fabulous place for a family to stay, very well equipped, really relaxing area away from the 'busy world' within an area so natural & peaceful. All the family were able to enjoy the facilities of the warm cottage, with lots of walks & beaches nearby for the dog in October.

A truly magical holiday home - spectacular views of the southern IOW during the day, and the Milky Way at night. Spacious and comfortable inside and had every facility we could ask for. Many thanks!

This cottage is amazing. The location is fantastic and has breath taking coastal views. Its in a beautiful setting. I was there with my family, 7 adults and 3 children and it was perfect. There was plenty of space for everyone in the living room, dining area, garden or barbecue area. The kitchen is nice and big and has everything you need. The bedrooms are really nice too and with 2 ensuites there was plenty of bathrooms for all of us not to be queing for the shower or toilets. I cant fault it in any way and would highly recommend this property for a relaxing holiday that is a short drive from anywhere!!!!

Really nice cottage, lots of room, superb views from the rear of the property, over the Channel. 150 yards walk out of the back garden to the cliff edge; steps cut into the cliff side (not for the faint hearted) provides access to a practically deserted beach with crystal clear water. For easier access, a short stroll of around half a mile takes you down to the chine and down onto the beach. The front garden (courtyard) has a fabulous bbq area with plenty of seating. The nearest pub (Wight Mouse) serves great food and is about a mile and half from the cottage and most places on the Island are within 30-40 minutes drive from the property. Overall, really nice place to stay and perfect base to discover the island.
