Old Laundry Cottage offers a fantastic base for a wonderful holiday, with Tennyson Down and the beach at Freshwater Bay both being within a couple of minutes’ walk. This unique cottage, which once served as the laundry house for all the coastguards’ cottages, has been beautifully and stylishly renovated to provide a cosy retreat, benefiting from an enclosed, private garden and private parking. The living room offers a wood burner for colder days, whilst the private garden is the perfect suntrap for those who wish to soak up the sun. This cottage is perfectly situated down a peaceful, gravelled lane and is ideally located to explore this beautiful island. West Wight, famous for it spectacular scenery and walks, is accessible directly from the cottage. Just 4 miles west over Tennyson Down leads to The Needles, whilst the Tennyson Trail to the east takes you to Brook, Mottistone, Shorwell and Carisbrooke, all with great pubs and stunning views. Compton and Totland Bay beaches are just 2 miles along the coast road, where you can hunt for dinosaur fossils or simply just stroll along the promenade. The picturesque sailing town of Yarmouth is worth a visit, as are the many attractions on the Isle of Wight, which can all be reached by an open-top bus. In addition to walking, cycling, golf and surfing on the doorstep, Tapnell Farm is within easy reach. Apart from having a lovely restaurant, gallery, animals and an indoor play area, it hosts the Isle of Wight Activity Centre which can organise canoeing, coasteering and grass surfing at Freshwater Bay. Hired bikes can be delivered to your door, and riding stables are 2 miles away. There is also a stunning golf course overlooking the bay. Shop 700 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile. Old Laundry Cottage can be booked together with Coastguards (W44285) to accommodate up to 6 guests.
