In a nutshell: Very comfortable property in small, quiet complex on water's edge, two bathrooms, pet friendly. This group of Isle of Wight cottages is situated in the delightful setting of Wooton Creek on the north coast of the island amidst beautiful countryside. The creek has been used as a waterway and port for thousands of years - the Romans landed cargo here, King Canute is said to have come ashore here and the monks from nearby Quarr Abbey had a fishery at the creek mouth. Today, the settlement has crept slowly up either side of the valley away from its origins on the creek and has become a very popular haunt for leisure yachtsmen, with several creek side businesses supporting a variety of maritime activities. A few miles to the west lies Cowes, a major yachting centre, that hosts many national and international events and whose waterfront is a kaleidoscope of colourful sails. To the east is Ryde which has six miles of glorious sandy beaches and shallow coastal waters which are ideal for swimming. A broad seafront promenade runs alongside the Esplanade with the pier at its centre, which at nearly half a mile, is one of the oldest and longest piers in the country.

Nestling beside picturesque Wootton Creek, and within easy reach of the island’s principal attractions, these very comfortable properties are equally appealing for family holidays in the summer or a well earned winter break. A quiet, small and intimate complex of cottages and apartments, with lawns leading down to the water’s edge, Creek Gardens is ideally located close to countryside of outstanding natural beauty midway between Ryde’s golden sands (4.5 miles) and Newport. Creek View is set apart from its neighbouring properties and affords uninterrupted views of the creek both from within and from its own private patio. The village of Wootton Bridge is an eclectic mix of modern and Victorian buildings and also boasts the renowned Sloop Inn on Mill Square. Numerous child friendly sandy beaches are found nearby and for walkers, there are five separate trails to follow from the village, one of which leads to a little used cove, Woodside Bay, and can be reached on foot within 10 minutes or so from Creek Gardens. The creek is a favourite with yachtsmen and boaters and the nearby mill pond is rich in wildlife with resident herons, egrets and kingfishers whilst the rural landscape is home to red squirrels, foxes, badgers and dormice.
Visitors will find places of interest to suit all ages and tastes including the Roman Villa at Brading, a wax museum housed in the island’s oldest domestic building dating from 1499, The Isle of Wight Steam Railway, the Butterfly and Fountain World, interactive dinosaur museums, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, the Botanic Gardens at Ventnor, traditional craft studios and Firestone Copse with its picnic sites and walks. A short drive leads to Cowes, host to regattas every summer as well as the famous Cowes Week, whilst the natural harbour at Bembridge throngs with yachts and pretty houseboats.
A wealth of outdoor activities can be readily accessed – golf, riding, sailing, cycle hire and fishing are all found nearby and windsurfing, jet skiing, sailplane flying and hang gliding are also available. Shops and pubs serving food are about 0.75 miles away in Wootton and Ryde offers more extensive shopping.
