The property

Sandown 3 miles.

This Adult Only detached luxury log cabin, lies near the village of Alverstone, with views towards the fishing lake, and woodland which surrounds the lovely location.

Perfect for outdoor pursuits, this cottage is a breath of fresh air, somewhere peaceful for couples to escape from it all, and relax away from the hustle and bustle and perhaps see Red squirrels in the trees around the cabin.

Take a second to appreciate the tranquil setting before wandering inside to the wonderful open-plan living area.

Relax on the sumptuous sofa in front of the woodburner, and feel right at home, with the addition of exposed beams to set the scene for a cosy night in.

There is a sofa bed should you wish to enjoy a restful night's sleep amongst the warm ambience, and doors open out to the beautiful decked area, perfect for a refreshing drink.

The well-equipped kitchen is finished in a grey effect, and the shower room features an immaculate spacious walk-in shower, overlooked by ceiling spotlights.

For a snug end to the day, the double bedroom is tied together by views of the water, and is nicely accessorised, matching the feel of the cottage wholeheartedly.

With your own private decked area, you will want to relax outdoors, perhaps engaging in some birdwatching, or simply taking a moment to embrace the scenery. The main Island Cycle route from Sandown to Cowes passes the property only 150yds away so is ideally situated to use your bikes. For the Walking enthusiasts Alverstone has many interesting footpaths to explore.

Sandown is a fantastic coastal town, it offers a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafés to enjoy, along with a large beach and a stunning pier.

The Isle of Wight is full of pleasant towns and places to visit, with Ventnor and Cowes in easy driving distance, they are fantastic places well worth a go.

The Shanklin Chine is also well worth a visit, with its dramatic waterfalls and deeply shaded paths.

A unique cottage in a memorable location.

Guests Comments

“Best, holiday let yet”

We are the first to stay at Hobbits Landing. It is the sister lodge to Willows End which is a very similar lodge but had been used since July 2018. We were greeted by Paul and Chris, a very friendly couple who have spent an enormous amount of thought, attention to detail, effort and money to provide, what we consider, to be the best holiday let to date and will take some beating! Perched on the edge of a beautiful lake, part of a few in the village, the view from the lodge lounge, bedroom and decked patio is perfect. The large Windows in the lounge and bedroom allow you to appreciate it all day. There is very good fishing apparently but we are happy to just watch the fish, ducks, Moorhens, Dragon flies and many species of birds. There are wonderful walks, cycle tracks and bridleways all around the area with some great pubs and restaurants within a short drive. The lodge has been very tastefully designed with every amenity available. It is wonderfully laid out with excellent kitchen and bathroom, no substandard equipment or decor here! Within 2 or 3 miles of Sandown and Shanklin it is an absolutely perfect get-away for couples and base for the whole Isle of Wight. We will be coming back!

“Everything was perfect.The unit / ...”

Everything was perfect.The unit / cabin has been fitted out with the utmost care and quality of fixtures and fittings. The outlook and ambience of the area far exceeded our expectations. Magnificent fish in the ponds if you are a fisherman but wonderful to just watch for others. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Hobbits Landing is a delightful lakeside lodge in a tranquil setting. The lodge is furnished to a very high standard and with a log burner will be a delight in the autumn/winter months. Paul and Chris couldn't have done more to make us welcome.
