About the location

Freshwater

Yarmouth 3 miles; Cowes 16 miles; Fishbourne 16 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

Freshwater is situated at the western tip of the Isle of Wight and consists of Freshwater Village and Freshwater Bay. Freshwater village offers a good selection of small independent shops, cafes and the West Wight Sports Centre and Indoor Swimming Pool. The magnificent high chalk cliffs, rolling downs and delightful beaches at Freshwater Bay and nearby Compton Bay attract many visitors and surfers all year round. The renowned Freshwater Bay Golf Club, which overlooks the English Channel has stunning coastal sea views from most tees and offers a superb day out for golfers of all abilities, whilst the area is a haven for birdwatchers, cyclists and walkers with many wonderful walks to be enjoyed not only on West Wight but across the entire Isle of Wight criss-crossing over a much varied island landscape. Locally, Afton Down (the location of the famous 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival), and Tennyson Down are the most popular walks. At the foot of Tennyson Down is the Dimbola Museum and Photographic Galleries. The Needles Pleasure Park at Alum Bay with its coloured sand cliffs and chairlift to the beach is just south west of Freshwater plus a little further afield on the north coast of the Isle of Wight is the premier yachting centre of Cowes. Osborne House (the former home of Queen Victoria) is located at East Cowes. The nearby Farringford Hotel on the edge of Freshwater Bay was once the home of the British Poet Laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and many notable poets, authors and painters have been attracted to the area of West Wight over the years. With the seaside town of Yarmouth close by with its busy harbour and pier, shops, inns, eateries and impressive Tudor castle, this is an ideal base for an enjoyable holiday.

This was the perfect getaway. A really cosy and comfortable cottage set in an idyllic part of the Isle of Wight. The owner had gone to the trouble of putting up and decorating a Christmas tree for us, and there was a generous welcome pack on our arrival. The cottage has bags of character and has been tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend it to any of our friends, and look forward to returning.

Mrs Aston, Godalming, December 2013

The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and cosy.

Mrs Jones, Dolgellau, October 2013

The cottage was one of the best equipped that we have stayed in, and extremely comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly when we spoke to them.

Mr Langton, Leicester, September 2013

The cottage was absolutely fantastic, and the welcome pack a lovely surprise. We cannot praise the owner and her family enough. All were friendly and welcoming, took time to show us around their stables, but did not interfere at all. We would all highly recommend this cottage as a holiday home, and would definitely go again. Well situated, very very pretty, comfortable, homely and welcoming. Thank you all for a wonderful holiday.

Mrs Wilders, Wisbech, June 2013
