1 Drayton Villas

1 Drayton Villas, Newlands, consists of an Edwardian property divided into 2 refurbished one bedroom apartments, each with one double bedroom, living room including well-sprung sofa bed, fitted kitchen and bathroom.  The ground floor apartment has an extra single fold-out bed.

The ground floor has a sheltered garden complete with garden furniture and BBQ. The first floor flat has full-size windows which open onto a sea view (almost a balcony). Both flats have the benefit of WIFI.

The major attraction of the apartment is its unique position situated on a quiet residential street which leads from St Helen’s village green via Mill Lane to the sea. From the bottom of the lane one can turn left at the Old Mill and walk across the Duver to the coast and perhaps sample the menu at Baywatch cafe, or to the right to Bembridge Marina and the village, or more beaches and wooded walks.

At the top of the road is one of the two excellent restaurants of the green, and across the green a general store which hardly ever closes and of course the village pub

Newlands is a quiet residential street, which leads (via a footpath connecting to Mill Lane) from St Helens Green down to the sea close to Bembridge Marina and via the Duver across the sea wall to St Helens Beach, a family friendly spot with a lovely cafe. The more adventurous may like to walk along the shore to Priory Bay, an idyllic sandy beach, or further to Sea View and Ryde

The busier resorts of Sandown (UK’s sunniest beach), Shanklin and Ventnor are a short distance away by road, as are the venues for the world famous Cowes week and Pop festival. St Helen’s is an ideal base for exploration of all the island’s beauty spots.

Babies and children are welcome.

See bookings page for more details.

The apartments are non-smoking.

Well-behaved dogs by arrangement .

Perfect for us

It exactly what we were looking for. My husband and I stayed in the ground floor apartment with our 5 month old son for 4 nights. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and well maintained.… Read more “Perfect for us”
