    “We had a super week in this excellent cottage.”

    First and foremost is its location: not only is it a ten minute walk down to Alum Bay; not only does it have amazing views of the Needles, but you can walk in several directions directly from the door. I would recommend the stroll up Headon Heath behind the cottage for the sunsets and, if you feel up to it, along the ridge to the coastguard house or to the Tennyson Monument. We also loved the wildlife nearby, watching young foxes in their vain attempts to chase magpies and large rabbits ...

    First and foremost is its location: not only is it a ten minute walk down to Alum Bay; not only does it have amazing views of the Needles, but you can walk in several directions directly from the door. I would recommend the stroll up Headon Heath behind the cottage for the sunsets and, if you feel up to it, along the ridge to the coastguard house or to the Tennyson Monument. We also loved the wildlife nearby, watching young foxes in their vain attempts to chase magpies and large rabbits unconcerned by them too. Skylarks and kittiwakes were plentiful also. In the cottage was everything we needed and we were grateful for the welcome pack of milk, wine etc. Super showers, efficient dishwasher … and many more features made our stay comfortable and pleasant. Yes, it could have done with more thorough cleaning in places and the lack of recycling collection was a pity, but these were minor quibbles in an otherwise wonderful cottage.

About the location

TOTLAND

Freshwater 1 mile; Yarmouth 3 miles.

The village of Totland rests in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the west side of the Isle of Wight's beautiful coast, offering visitors local shops and pubs and spectacular unspoilt coastal scenery. The award-winning beaches of both Totland and Colwell Bay offer a range of activities, whilst a pretty footpath will take you to Freshwater in ten minutes where you will find its golf course and public swimming pool. It is also an excellent starting point for walks along the Tennyson Trail. Take a chair lift from Alum Bay and enjoy some of the wonderful views across the sand cliffs to the famous 'Needles' chalk stacks and lighthouse beyond, or explore the quaint narrow streets, ancient castle and busy harbour at Yarmouth. A great destination with plenty to see and do!
