In a nutshell: Listed building, walk to beach, pub and shops, king size bed. Our featured Isle of Wight cottages include this thatched cottage which is full of character. It shelters under the great heights of Brighstone Down, a delightful place. Brighstone is one of the prettiest villages on the island. Once notorious as the home of smugglers and wreckers it lies on the sunny side of the chalk downs that march east-west across the centre of the island.
