Couthy Butts is a delightful 16th century cottage set amongst some of the most breath taking scenery on the Isle of Wight.

Couthy Butts can be found very much off the beaten track, hidden amid magnificent countryside made up of sprawling downland and rolling hills.

The Old World village of Godshill is only a short drive from the cottage and is probably one of the prettiest villages on the Island.

There really is something for all the family to explore including model village, museums, gift shops, pubs and restaurants.

What the South Wight has to offer:

The South of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most exciting coastline from long stretches of beach with hidden fossils and exposed dinosaur footprints, to rugged cliff tops with exhilarating views and historical monuments and pretty villages steeped in history, the inspiration for artists and authors old and new.

You must visit Blackgang Chine is a must for all the family with a fantastic variety of activities for all the family to spend a great day out. Themed areas like Frontierland where you can play Cowboys and Indians in a full sized Cowboy Town, and rides like Waterforce where you can choose the fast 'overflows', or the scary 'plug-hole' - you'll have to see it and experience it to believe it!

Attractions superbly situated beside the sparkling waters of Sandown Bay and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years. Along Culver Parade at Sandown you'll find tennis, bowls, crazy golf, a pitch and putt course, the Tiger Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle Museum. At the southern end of the town is the Heights Health and Leisure Base with its indoor swimming pools and further inland is a fine 18 hole golf course.

Godshill with its charming thatch-roofed cottages and winding main street lined with tearooms, is the quintessential English Village. Travelling South to Wroxall you will find the Donkey Sanctuary and Appuldurcombe House now offering Owl and Falconry displays. Visit Chale Green Deli and Coffee shop and on to the Southern most tip of the Island St Catherine's is the ancient 'Pepperpot'.

Ventnor Botanic Gardens is a must visit, providing a lovely walk and then lunch at their Planation cafe. Below the gardens is one the prettiest hidden beaches - Steephill Cove, a peaceful little bay with a characterful beach cafes from where one can walk the coastal path to Ventnor and Bonchurch beyond and to the Devil's Chimney providing an exciting walk through enchanted woodland down to the beach.

To the west the coastline features the Isle of Wight's famous chines. Whale Chine is the most spectacular in a series of Chines along this stretch of coastline al of which have yielded fossilized remains of dinosaurs. With features like St Catherine's Lighthouse many feel this region offers the best walking and views of the entire Isle of Wight.

Beach Life can be enjoyed around the Island, some of the most popular beaches being at Sandown and Shanklin on the south-east coast sharing a wide crescent of golden sand, with safe swimming, water sports and a range of bars, pubs and cafes. The southern stretch, below Shanklin Chine, is the quietest and one of the most attractive. Ventnor has a wonderful Mediterranean light and, like Sandown and Shanklin, boasts an enviable sunshine record. The soft sandy beach at Ryde stretches for miles to Appley and Puckpool dotted along which are cafes and ice cream kiosks.

The choice of places to eat is varied and plentiful most of which serve fresh seafood locally caught on the coast of the Island - in particular crab, lobster & cod. The vast majority of pubs are highly geared up for food and usually the portions are on the large side. Fresh crab in particular can be tasty from beachside cafe's and can also be purchased from the fisherman at seafood huts selling direct - Ventnor Fresh Crab Beach Hut and a fisherman's house at Steephill Cove next to the cafe'.
