2 Old Park Cottages is the original coastal retreat, a haven of tranquillity living alongside nature. Peacefully tucked away in St Lawrence, and only 2 miles from Ventnor on the South side of the Isle of Wight. Built circa 1855 and once part of the Twinings Tea Family Estate. This quaint 2 bed semi-detached coastal cottage takes you back to more simpler times, having been lovingly restored back to its original condition. The gardens are particularly special being designed and planted by the current owners to match the period of the cottage. Though a few thoughtful modern touches have been sympathetically added for additional enjoyment and comfort, like WiFi and a Smart TV.
A typical Victorian cottage layout, with a cosy and comfortable sitting room, a wonderful open log fire and a large Smart TV, the perfect space to curly up and enjoy a movie after a bracing cliff walk. The kitchen has been influenced by the children’s kitchen at The Swiss Cottage in the grounds of Osborne House, with the dining area situated in the conservatory next door. There is a glamorous downstairs bathroom, with a stunning free-standing roll top bath and shower. Up the steep stairs there are two bedrooms, the master king bedroom with garden views and the back 4’ double bedroom benefiting from some stunning seasonal sea views out across the English Chanel.
The gardens are set over two levels, showcasing some beautiful old English roses all pre1860, and have be sourced from all around the world.
