As part of Blue Chip’s quality team, I love the fact that my role takes me to some of the UK’s most beautiful destinations, and when I popped over to the Isle of Wight with my teammate Leanne, I was lucky enough to stay at Seagrass for a night.
The weather was lovely and I was enjoying my first experience of the island. When we arrived at the property, we couldn’t wait to get out of the car to admire the fantastic view of the sea from the property’s elevated position. It really does have the wow factor and from this height the sea is sure to look amazing in all weathers.
We had had a long day, and it was already evening when we arrived at Seagrass. Eager to explore inside and settle ourselves to cook dinner, we located the key safe, let ourselves in and unloaded the car.
The wow factor continues inside the property too. Stepping into the hallway the living room - which has a couple of steps leading down to it and an incredible high curved ceiling - drew us into its amazing light space, furnished with stylish contemporary pieces. The day had been hot, and wanting to let some air into the room and step out to the balcony, we opened the bifold doors that run the width of the living room.
Bringing our bags into our home from home and exploring further, we discovered a cosy twin room filled with light from a corner window and a lovely master bedroom, again with corner windows looking out to the stunning sea views. This room had the benefit of an en suite shower room. A further shower room was located off the hallway.
A thoughtfully put together welcome hamper sat on the breakfast bar to welcome us at the end of the kitchen and included some sweets, fresh coffee and a bottle of white wine which we placed in the fridge to chill. Dinner ready, we settled down at the dining table to eat and chat over our day.
This contemporary building’s spacious open plan living and dining area makes a fantastic social space. Guests will be able to soak in the views and mingle together from a variety of positions including the large sofa, a pair of armchairs, a leather recliner positioned in front of the windows, a pair of stools at the breakfast bar and the circular dining table with four chairs.
Tired from the day and with another early start the following morning we headed to bed before it got too late. Lovely comfortable beds offered us a good night’s sleep ready for the next day. The provision of Aussie shampoo, conditioner and a shower gel meant I needn’t have packed mine and we were pleased to find hairdryers in both of the bedrooms.
Sadly there was no leisurely holiday breakfast for us, but an eat on the go one while we logged on to our laptops, got ourselves ready, packed our things and cleared up. We loaded the bags into the car, took in the wonderful view for one last time and headed off. Driving down we had a look at the Victorian seafront with its traditional beach huts, cafes, ice cream parlours, restaurants and shops all sure to be enjoyed by guests at Seagrass.
I would definitely recommend Seagrass as a peaceful relaxing base from which to explore the island. Click here to find out more about Seagrass.
