Byde Cottage is a detached property situated in the heart of Newtown, once the capital of the Island and thriving port, now just a hamlet of approximately 20 properties, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Extended and refurbished throughout this bright and spacious home has been tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard with great attention to detail. The kitchen and living space extend out on to a large deck enjoying a view of the garden and stunning scenery beyond.
