WOOTTON CREEK Wootton Creek is one of the lovelier creeks in the Solent, with wooded valleys sweeping down to a winding creek. Midway between Cowes and Ryde, it was once used by trading sailing vessels visiting the brickworks at Ash Lake, and the tide mill at the head of the creek where the Sloop Inn now stands.
The village of Wootton Bridge offers a full range of facilities; Post Office, take-aways, tea room, launderette, doctor and vet, supermarket and wine warehouse; just outside the village is a garage.
Since 1993 Wootton Creek and the adjacent Ryde Sands have been designated as SSSI due to their wide range of intertidal sand flats.
THE LOFT is located just behind a small marina on the banks of Wootton Creek and offers gorgeous views of the creek from the rear rooms and decked terrace. The property is conveniently situated close to the ferry port of Fishbourne giving great access across the Solent.
The property itself offers spacious and bright accommodation over two floors ;a large driveway off Barge Lane provides access to the house with steps down to a front door opening to the open plan kitchen/dining area.
