Diamond Cottage is an idyllic, two double bedroom Victorian cottage set on a private lane in a semi-rural location in Freshwater Village and within easy walking distance to Freshwater Bay.

The cottage is in a perfect base to enjoy a fabulous stay on the Isle of Wight, with or without a car.

The cottage is close to various bus routes including the Island Breezer, cycle routes and public footpaths, whilst there are three excellent pubs, cafés, supermarket, shops, a cycle hire shop, golf course and beaches all within walking distance.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and has a fresh, light, and airy feel, and enjoys rural views to the rear.

There is a lawned, rear garden and generous patio area with table and chairs, and there is also space to the front of the property to leave cycles.

A short walk will take you to your nearest pubs and eateries, including The Vine Inn, The Red Lion, The Freshwater Coffee House, and End of the Line Café.

There are also food and coffee vans at Freshwater Bay and Yarmouth.

Nearby landmarks of Golden Hill Country Park and Western Yar Lake are also worth a visit.

For a full day out, head into the heart of the magnificent Isle of Wight AONB, where you and your loved ones can spend time ambling along the National Trust-owned The Needles Headland & Tennyson Down hiking area, brush up on local history and culture at the Dimbola Museum & Galleries, get up close with animals at the Tapnell Farm Park, or enjoy a day strolling along or sunbathing at one of many nearby beaches.

Whether you are wanting a romantic weekend or looking to actively explore the Isle of Wight, Diamond Cottage is perfect.

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.
