Full description

As you approach 'Dunnose Magna' down the mile drive, the sea is framed in front of you by a beautiful rolling landscape. Wildlife abounds and the warm stone and thatch of this great house invites you towards it.
The property enjoys a unique position with direct access to the coastal path and is in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is protected by the National Trust. The town of Shanklin lies to the east and Ventnor to the west, both offering all amenities.
