The property

Bramble Cottage is a charming holiday home at the end of a lane in the peaceful hamlet of Norton Green in West Wight between Freshwater and the historic port town of Yarmouth at the mouth of the River Yar close to beautiful beaches and bays.

The cottage has a large entrance porch-cum-utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer – a good place for your dog if he is on holiday with you.

The hallway leads to cosy snug with TV and feature fireplace through to a fabulous open plan kitchen and living/ dining space with oak parquet flooring throughout.

The property has been extended and renovated to a high standard displaying an effortless blend of traditional and contemporary décor, flooded with natural light.

Sliding patio doors and French windows open out onto the terrace on two sides and the sunny, lawned garden beyond. The well equipped kitchen is beautifully appointed with marble worktops and an impressive array of appliances to enhance your self-catering holiday.

Eat at the rustic farmhouse table or in the warmer weather, alfresco on the terrace.

The patio outside the summer house at the bottom of the garden makes a lovely setting for an evening drink to catch the last of the rays.

The summer house can provide a quiet office space, if needed, with Hi-speed WiFi, or alternatively a ‘cool place’ for older children to retreat with a pool table and ‘chill out’ zone.

Back to the cottage, the downstairs family bathroom also has an overhead shower and is equally versatile for bathing the little kids or enjoying a leisurely bath away from the throng.

The first of three bedrooms is on the ground floor, with a double bed and convenient shower room across the way. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, (one double; one twin). All bedrooms are elegant and traditional with wrought iron beds, top of the range Eve hybrid mattresses and ample storage.

Bramble Cottage is an idyllic base from which to explore the Isle of Wight with its unspoilt countryside, magnificent views and glorious sunsets. It is a walkers’ and cyclists’ paradise in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Golden Hill Country Park is on the doorstep.

Walks lead from the door along the Causeway to either Freshwater or Yarmouth and a good opportunity to spot local birdlife.

Old Freshwater village has a traditional pub with a lovely beer garden, next door to the 11th Century church. Freshwater Bay is a great starting point for walks along Tennyson Downs, with breath taking views across the sea and to the Needles, or for the inland nature trail through Afton Marsh.

Yarmouth has a scenic harbour, a marina full of yachts and people messing about on boats as well as and an original Grade II listed wooden pier for a gentle stroll or a spot of fishing.

Yarmouth is well served with excellent independent shops, cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs.

It has some of the oldest architecture on the Island including a 16th Century castle. There is a road bridge over the river estuary which heads out of the town, and a short distance along is Fort Victoria Country Park and a Victorian gun battery.

It is set in a beautiful country park where you can enjoy a woodland nature trail and admire the spectacular coastline, making it another good spot to explore.

Colwell Bay is a popular family beach, which has an endearing air of the traditional British holiday with beach huts, good for swimming and water sports and the popular The Hut seafood beachfront restaurant.

Totland Bay has a delightful small beach with a short esplanade and recently renovated pier cafe. Nearby is the picturesque Alum Bay, renowned for its coloured sand cliffs and the Needles Pleasure Park.

Bramble Cottage is an awesome holiday cottage to relax and recharge in a wonderful holiday destination all year round.

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.
