Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Located just a short walk from the picturesque beach at Freshwater Bay, this Victorian holiday home is great for couples, small groups and families alike.

This end-terrace property can comfortably sleep up to six people, whilst its location in the west of the island provides the ideal base to enjoy fantastic coastal walks, beautiful bays and some of the UK’s very best beaches. The Isle of Wight has become a real hot spot for cycling enthusiasts, with a choice of challenging off-road bridleways, peaceful byways and level, purpose-made tracks running along its former railway lines. You can take a leisurely cycle to the famous Needles, or take on the full 66-mile Round the Island Route, as used for the Annual Isle of Wight Randonnee held over the May bank holiday. Travel along the route at a slightly more leisurely pace, and you will find numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes amongst the quaint villages and towns serving tasty local produce to give you a real flavour of the Isle of Wight.
A spacious three bedroom property, Selbourne is decorated and furnished to a very good standard and has a boot room entrance so that you can remove your walking boots, beach wear or cycling gear, depending on your days activities. There is also a large open-plan kitchen and dining area for being social and enjoying your meals, as well as a sitting room and a further living room with wood burner, perfect to stretch out and relax in front of after a busy day.

    Lovely place to stay, clean and well-equipped. The owners were very helpful in response to some extra requirements of ours, and also when we left something behind! Freshwater Bay is also a lovely place to stay, less touristy than other parts of the island but beautiful.

    A beautifully presented little house, very well equipped. Everything is good quality and the house is spotlessly clean. It is well situated, with Tennyson Down a short walk away in one direction (footpath to the left of the thatched church at the top of the road) & Freshwater Bay in the other. There is a large Co-Op a short drive away which is handy. We had a very good week there and can heartily recommend it.

    Selbourne is a wonderfully well-appointed, clean and comfortable house located in a very quiet street close to a lovely quiet bay. It's within a 15-20 minute drive of lots and lots of things to keep a young family happy and occupied. We had a very relaxing holiday there and our hosts made us feel very at home.
