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.

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, the twin resorts of Sandown and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years. Along Culver Parade you'll find tennis, bowls, GoKarting, crazy golf, a pitch and putt course, the Tiger Sanctuary and Dinosaur Isle Museum. At the southern end of town the Heights Health and Leisure Base has indoor swimming pools and further inland is a fine 18 hole golf course.

With its charming thatch-roofed cottages and winding main street lined with tearooms, Godshill is the quintessential English Village. Traveling South to Wroxall there's the Donkey Sanctuary and Appledurcombe 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 with its ancient Pepperpot. Ventnor Botanic Garden provides a lovely walk and then lunch at their very successful café.

Walking
There are coastal paths around the Island and this section features the Isle of Wight's famous chines. Whale Chine is the most spectacular in a series of Chines along this stretch of coastline. Devil's Chimney provides an exciting walk through enchanted woodland down to the beach; Chale Bay is stunning; Wealdon Beds which have yielded fossilized remains of dinosaurs. With features like St Catherine's Lighthouse many feel this section offers the best walking and views of the entire Isle of Wight.

Beach Life
Sandown and Shanklin on the south-east coast share a wide crescent of golden sand, with safe swimming, water sports and a range of bars, pubs and cafés. The southern stretch, below Shanklin Chine, is the quietest and most attractive.

Ventnor has a wonderful Mediterranean light and, like Sandown and Shanklin, an enviable sunshine record. Steephill Cove is its prettiest beach, a peaceful little bay with a good beach café. Reach it via the coastal footpath from the Botanic Gardens, or La Falaise car park in Ventnor.

Places to eat
Try the local seafood, in particular crab, lobster, haddock dishes. 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, two places spring to mind: Ventnor Fresh Crab Beach Hut and a fisherman's house at Steephill Cove next to the café'.
