Bodwen sleeping up to 14 guests
Set within a 9-acre estate, this holiday property is ideal for exploring the many attractions the Isle of Wight has to offer.
Situated along a private road, this Victorian home was formerly the summer residence of the Countess Cowley, a member of Queen Victoria’s entourage. Located to maximise the sea views it is set within a beautiful 9-acre estate surrounded by woodland and the coast. Here you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings - and you may even spot one of the infamous red squirrels. Bodwen has been designed with large families and groups in mind with carefully co-ordinated interiors and contemporary furnishings. The property also had the added bonus of an outdoor tap, perfect for washing off walking boots and bikes.
