Since 2006 OceanBlue Coastal Retreats have specialised in presenting unique coastal cottages for your perfect Isle of Wight holiday.

Follow the lane through the woods, besides the old strawberry field and roll down towards the sea.

Our Coastal Retreats


Beautifully restored cottages in a stunning coast meets country setting.
Our cottages are set down a private lane on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The Undercliff is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is famous for its unique microclimate, offering year round temperatures milder than anywhere else in the UK.

Follow the path down the cliff to Monks Bay, a beautiful sheltered sandy beach, safe for bathing. The offshore breakwater to the west is the perfect place to cast a fishing line out to sea. At low tide hundreds of rock-pools are exposed, home to many small fish, prawns and crabs. When the tide comes in float over the rocks with a mask and snorkel – you will be amazed at what you see.

Explore the wooded area to the east of Carmel known as The Landslip. As with the rest of the Undercliff, the Landslip has been sculpted over the last 10’000 years by erosion and landslides giving rise to a distinctive landscape onto itself. The unique coastal path will lead you from rugged cliff top through enchanting woodland and open glades with views far out to sea. Climb the steps cut into the cliffs known as ‘The Devils Chimney’ where smugglers stashed their hauls from wrecked ships hundreds of years ago.
