||Brookside Cottage is in Shorwell, Isle of Wight, 2 miles from the sea. The village has many thatched and stone built picturesque cottages and a great pub, The Crown Inn, which dates back to the 16th century.
Whilst recently modernised, the cottage dates back to 1700 and has a delightful garden with a little brook. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and with double-glazing and central heating, the cottage is ideal for holidays and short breaks all year round.
