The Sail Loft is positioned in the centre ofSteephill Cove, commanding outstanding views of the sea and coastline. It is a delightful, refurbished and updated property, that has a charm all of its own.

Steephill Cove is situated on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight. Often described as the island's 'best kept secret,' this fishing cove is accessible only by foot. There are no cars or light pollution, making it a great place for star gazing.  Although for some it can be difficult to find at first, of those that do discover this 'mini paradise', many return year after year.
