The property

This is a marvellous semi-detached eco-house in the village of Freshwater on the Isle of Wight.

Partly powered by solar panels, it has refreshing decor and is located right in the heart of Freshwater, making this an ideal spot for a family holiday.

Step through the splendid porch and enter into the rejuvenating, bright kitchen diner, decorated with calming creams, tans and mint greens, creating a soothing environment in this immaculate room, the perfect place for family meals.

The airy hall leads you towards the large family sitting room, with comfortable sofas sat in front of the TV, complete with Freeview and a DVD player if you fancy a cosy, lazy day.

The downstairs is complete with a cloakroom and storage underneath the stairs.

Heading up the stairs finished with exquisite spiraling handrails, they lead you to an upstairs with three dazzling, pristine bedrooms and a large, classy family bathroom.

To the back of the property through the patio doors is a patio area complete with contemporary furniture, a BBQ and lawned area, perfect to relax in after a long day of exploring all that Freshwater has to offer.

Freshwater sits at the most Western point of the Isle of Wight.

Despite being on a small island, it is a village with a whole lot to offer, including independent shops and cafes, along with more extreme activities such as surfing.

Outside of Freshwater, the Isle of Wight has an whole lot else to offer.

Just 5 miles away sits the oldest town on the island, Yarmouth.

Full of narrow streets and passages, it is a place that holds a lot of culture including Henry VIII's castle along with an array of surrounding beaches.

A stunning house set in an extremely interesting area of the Isle of Wight, most certainly a different place to spend a holiday.

About the location


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.
