St Helens, Isle Of Wight, PO33 1XS



Constructed in circa 1892, Little Orchard is a substantial period house. The house retains much of the original character including high ceilings, picture rails, skirting boards and door furnishings, yet with a degree of modernisation to include UPVC sash windows, a modern boiler and pressurised water cylinder. The house has plenty of generous well-proportioned accommodation, well suited to a family. The long garden to the rear has out-buildings, mature trees and there is off road parking for two cars.

Little Orchard is ideally situated close to the village centre and only a short walk down to the harbour quay and the causeway leading to the sand dunes of the Duver and family friendly beach. The small but vibrant village of St Helens has two village shops, two restaurants, a pub and a coffee shop, together with an antiquarian bookshop and excellent access to nearby Bembridge Harbour, with extensive mooring facilities and sailing clubs at Bembridge and Brading Haven. There is easy access to a range of more extensive facilities and mainland transport links at Ryde (approximately 3 miles away) as well as a number of good beaches, including Bembridge and around Priory Bay.
