The Blue Beach House
From £21 per person per night
Sleeps 4 people dogs allowed
Cabin on the Isle of Wight: Quirky and charming, this unique retreat is just yards from the ocean, and the ideal destination for a beachy, boaty getaway.
'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…' May we present the ideal spot for a coastal vacation? The Blue Beach house is perfectly situated (as its name suggests) just a few hundred yards from the beach, and has space outside to park a small boat or a couple of kayaks, so a life on the ocean waves is super-easy for anyone staying here. Alternatively, if your jam is more along the lines of 'I'm on holiday and I'm planning on doing precisely nothing', you'll find everything you need in this well-equipped holiday home - and can put relaxing down as number one on your to-do list. You may even bring your canine companion to enjoy your luxury break here, too.
Intriguingly, the weather-boarded house was built as troop accommodation during the First World War and, since then, has undergone many transformations, until being carefully renovated to the highest standards and becoming the gorgeous destination it is today. Enter through the welcoming double doors at the rear and you'll see that many original features have been retained, including the atmospheric timber panelling, which is made from Canadian cedar. The open plan sitting/dining-room is light, bright and airy, with plenty of space for a couple of comfortable sofas, a smart TV and a four-seater dining table, from where you can revel in the view of the pretty, private garden. On sunny days you can enjoy al fresco meals on the patio, sheltered by a large canopy. This is where you'll also find two cute, mini 'beach huts', which provide extra storage - for your suitcases and shoes, for example. Inside there's a galley kitchen, kitted out with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine and dishwasher, plus plenty of worktop space and cupboards - include wine storage! There are two bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed that can be transformed into a pair of 'zip and link' small singles, with its own en suite WC and wash-basin, the other with a double bed, while at the end of the hallway is the handy shower-room, with shower, WC and wash-basin. Electric heaters keep the whole house warm and cosy, and there's WiFi for when you feel the need to keep in touch with the outside world. Quiet days in or exciting days out, this is a great little place that you're bound to want to keep coming back to.
Out and About
The Blue Beach House is so handily placed, with Lane End beach - a combination of pebbles, sand and rock pools, with a slipway for launching your boat - just a few yards from your front door. Here you'll also find the striking Bembridge lifeboat station, which runs from a long pier, completely redeveloped in 2009 and constructed around the previous historic building. It's an easy stroll (or a few minutes in the car) to Bembridge village, where you'll find cafes, a bakery, fishmongers, butchers and a farm shop selling local produce. The harbour is a pleasure, lined with quirky houseboats, one of which has been converted into a floating seafood cafe, and there are many other gorgeous beaches nearby to explore, including Forelands Beach, a hidden gem with jewel-coloured beach huts and which also has a beach café and also a pub that overlooks the sea.
