Enclosed lawned garden with patio and garden furniture. On road parking. No smoking. Please note: There are 3 steps in the garden.. Heath Villa is a good sized detached bungalow, ideal for families and is able to accommodate up to six people. It’s dog friendly too and benefits from a fully enclosed south-facing rear garden. This bright and modern home can be found in the village of Lake located between the popular resort beaches of Sandown and Shanklin, and the beach at Lake is moments from the property and shares the same gently sloping golden sands and clear swimming waters of its neighbours.

At the rear of Lake Beach the cliff rises steeply creating a dramatic looking natural screen and shelter for the beach at the foot of which runs the sea wall, path and cycleway. The beach can be accessed from a set of steps from the top of the cliff path which is close to the property and Lake’s Island-line train station, alternatively you can gain access from Shanklin or Sandown Esplanades via a short walk in either direction along the sea wall. Because this beach is tucked away and not as straightforward to reach as its resort neighbours it is very often quieter during the busier months, making it a peaceful alternative for a day on the beach. As the waters are quieter this is a great beach for surfing and water sport’s, as the sea is shallow and clear. There is an instructional school which is located at the back of the beach that offers a whole range of activities for all ages and abilities, there’s also a café and barbeque area which is always popular during the summer season. There are beach huts which you can look to hire and also a number of benches to sit on along the sea wall path when the tide is further in. The walk along the sea wall between Sandown and Shanklin along the back of the beach, is highly recommended as it offers a wide, flat path which is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.

Sandown is a truly traditional British beach resort with pier, amusements, pitch ’n’ putt, Isle of Wight Zoo, children’s play area and the Dinosaur Isle attraction at the northern end of the esplanade towards Yaverland and Culver Cliff. The town is brimming with attractions to entertain visitors, most of them right on the beach front itself, so you never have to stray too far from the golden sands. At the other end of the path you will reach Shanklin Esplanade which is again packed full of amusements and crazy golf as well as several places to eat. Away from the beach the main town hosts a multitude of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants to enjoy. The old village is world famous with its pretty thatched cottages, cosy tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and craft shops to discover. There’s also Shanklin Chine to explore, carved by Mother Nature’s own hands over thousands of years. The stunning tree lined gorge cuts its mark from the old village down to the sandy beach and esplanade below. In the evening, the waterfalls and woodland are illuminated, giving the gardens a totally different aspect and atmosphere.

Outdoor pursuits on the island are well catered for and include riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages on this beautiful sunny island. The Needles landmark attraction is a must see and is a short distance away to the west, with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and Gardens, or perhaps Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle and the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes. Beach ½ mile. Shop and restaurant ½ mile, pub ¾ mile.

“Our stay at the Heath Villa was wonderful. The garden is the perfect size for children to play and the dog couldnt escape haha! So close to the supermarket and local shops yet far enough away that it was so so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful locations all around and the cottage is very accommodating. It has everything in it you will need for your break away!”

“House was well equipped and clean. Location was superb, very close to amenities and both Sandown and Shanklin few minutes drive away.Fantastic Garden. We wish we were there during better weather as we werent able to enjoy it much this time. I can imagine just sitting out in it on summer days soaking up the sun while kids play on grass land above patio.Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for reasonably priced base to come back to during your visit to the Island.”

“Had a fantastic stay at heath villa. The bungalow was lovely, well equipped and clean. The garden was perfect for us & the dog. The beach was only a few minutes away on foot. Loved every minute of our first trip to the isle of wight and will defo be back”

“A generous welcome pack was waiting for us. The bungalow is spacious with plenty of storage. The kitchen is well supplied with crockery and cutlery, the gas range is huge and there is a large fridgefreezer. Also a washing machine and tumble dryer in a separate room. There was a strange smell in the master bedroom and the bedding could perhaps do with a deep clean and air fresheners in the chest of drawers would be welcome. The pretty garden was south facing and not overlooked and although the trains ran at the bottom of the property the noise wasn't impinging. The location was great, supermarkets close by, the zoo within half an hour's walking distance, good beaches nearby and a lot of attractions within easy distance. It would be useful to be told that the keys don't open the door by the key safe but are for the door on the opposite side of the bungalow. In fact one of the keys doesn't open either door so there's no point in having it.”

“We enjoy alots there house is clean n soo nice beach is soo close to that”

“We wanted a cottage for us and our dog and Heath Villa was perfect. It was a really short walk to the dog beach in Lake, which made enjoying the beach easy. The house was very clean and comfortable. Only issue was the size of the bath towels. Lovely size kitchen and the outdoor space is delightful and the dog loved running around the garden. For a train geek, it was amazing to have the Island Line trains rumbling along past the bottom of the garden. The owners were really responsive to communication and so welcoming. Would definitely recommend Heath Villa to anyone looking for a dog friendly cottage in a quiet area.”
