Warders Cottage

The property is situated in a particularly quiet and secluded setting off a rural country lane, midway between downland and the south-western coast of the Island. This is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are great walks and cycle rides directly from the property including to nearby beaches.

The cottage, believed to originate from the late 17th Century, retains a wonderful array of original features ranging from fine fireplaces and impressive beams to flagstone flooring and ancient timber doors.
