Morse Cottage is set in a unique location, off the beaten track, surrounded by open countryside with gated access to the coastal path where there are panoramic views along this spectacular coastline including St Catherines Lighthouse and Oratory. Set within ten acres of private meadowlands, adjoining National Trust Land, Morse Cottage is ideal for walkers, photographers, bird watchers or those just looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle. Originally the local telephone exchange, known as 'Niton Radio', this interesting property has been converted to offer spacious accommodation arranged on one level, with an open plan living area, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Good disabled access.
Larger groups can rent the adjoining 'Old Signal House' which sleeps 9, ideal for families or friends who wish to holiday together - the connecting door makes it a larger property to sleep 13 in total.
Niton village is about half a mile distant with a variety of local shops including convenience store, post office with tea rooms, butchers and pharmacy. The White Lion is a traditional family pub offering a selection of home made dishes. At the nearby Niton Undercliff, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is the Buddle Inn with splendid views overlooking the sea. Opposite are steps leading to Castle Cove with its history of smugglers and ghosts. One mile along the coastal road to the west is the popular Blackgang Chine theme park, a fun day out for all the family. A trip along the Military Road to Freshwater Bay offers magnificent views over the English Channel and the sandy beaches of Whale Chine, Brook and Compton Bays. The nearby Victorian resort town of Ventnor offers interesting architecture, shops, bars and cafes. Wander down through the Cascades to the Esplanade and crescent shaped beach, stylish tapas bar at The Metropole, family pub The Spyglass Inn and 'New England' style Haven where you can purchase the catch of the day.
