Anchor Down Cottage the perfect seaside retreat, sleeps 4, beach 2 mins

Holiday home in Ryde with kitchen and fireplace
Anchor Down Cottage is a wonderful dog welcoming semi-detached three bed home by the sea, sleeping up to four adult guests comfortably, situated in old Ryde, on the Isle of Wight. Tucked away in a peaceful road, steeped in history with link's to Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, and moments from Ryde’ golden sandy beach as well as all the superb international restaurants, café and boutiques that Ryde has to offer.

The Cottage was built in 1937 and is a welcoming traditional home, set over two floors, with a sitting room to the front with a large smart TV and warming log burner for those colder evenings. Heading to the heart of the house you will find a well-equipped fitted kitchen with a multi fuel range oven. The light dining area is just off of the kitchen, with bi-folding doors out into the immaculate lockable walled garden with table, chairs and a small gas bbq. There is also a covered area for bikes. Upstairs you will find three double bedrooms all with TV’s. A master king double with an en-suite shower room and sea views, and two standard doubles. The family bathroom offers a bath with rain shower over the bath, with plenty of hot water for all.
The bustling historical town centre of Ryde has lots to offer for the whole family, with its marina, boating lake, children’s rides, indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, bowling Greens, as well as having many international restaurants, pubs, cafés, boutiques, and antique shops, definitely something to do for everyone. Not forgetting the 6 miles of golden, gently sloping sandy beaches, which are ideal for bathing in the summer and breath-taking embracing walks in the winter. There is no better way to start your day, than taking a brisk walk from Ryde to Seaview while watching the sun rise, then pop into a café in Seaview and walk home.
