Flackstead - Brook, Isle of Wight
4 Star Gold

Stunning house with one of Europe’s top coastal views
This eco-friendly house is so utterly unique with its totally breath-taking, undisturbed coastal views across the World-famous Compton Bay towards the Needles. Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the fossil finders’ and surfers’ paradise beach at Compton, Flaxstead combines the very best of contemporary design with New England-style beach house character. Its extremely efficient biomass boiler and solar panels make this an ideal choice for eco-friendly guests

One of the most striking features is the natural light which floods into the whole house, angled to maximise the benefit from the South-facing sea views throughout the entire day, and offering amazing sunsets, all of which can be enjoyed from the beautiful garden, master bedroom and balcony or even from the en-suite bath tub!

Perfect for families and small groups, located in the heart of the Island’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the area offers a varied choice for walkers, cyclists and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts with a great range of water sport activities available locally (please see VIP Guest Experiences)
