Toad Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight
Town house with gas wood burning stove, electric showers and wi-fi, just 50 yards from water’s edge with bistro and sailing nearby.
Toad Hall is a two bedroom, mid-terraced holiday cottage located in the Island Harbour marina, on the east bank of the River Medina near the village of Binfield. From the house, there are walks (wellies needed!) south to Newport and north to a renowned inn and Queen Victoria’s church at Whippingham. There are a number of other pubs nearby serving food. There is a bistro in the marina looking out over the water and also serving drinks and meals. Also within the marina, there is a chandlery which sells basics such as bread, milk and eggs. Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle are very near and the cottage is an ideal base to explore the rest of the island. The ferry from Portsmouth arrives at Fishbourne, which is only a 10-minute drive away. Shops 2 miles and pub 1 mile.
