Find cottages in Freshwater

Freshwater is located in the far western tip of the island and has a picturesque bay and characteristic chalk white cliffs; perfect for dramatic cliff-top walks and exploration of this lovely corner of the Isle of Wight.

Freshwater Bay is an idyllic cove with a pebbled beach and beautiful clear waters. Sitting on the English Channel, it also provides a spectacular backdrop to the dramatic crashing waves around the famous Stag and Mermaid Rocks, two imposing chalk slabs that have tumbled to the sea from the nearby white cliffs.

From the pebbly beach you can wander along a coastal path up to Tennyson Down, where you will discover the Tennyson monument and appreciate the amazing views across the island and out to sea, taking in the iconic ‘Needles’ chalk stacks and lighthouse that sit amongst the dramatic waves.

Up in Freshwater village, you’ll find all the local facilities you could wish for in a cottage holiday destination. There is a bustling shopping centre with quirky, independent shops alongside popular high street names and there are plenty of places to eat and drink to enjoy the fresh local produce.

Take the children down to the Needles Meteorite at Compton Bay and search at low tide for dinosaur footprints or join one of the boats that take visitors out to the Needles from Yarmouth and Alum Bay. The chairlift at Needles Park offers visitors a spectacular view of the coloured sands and spiky cliffs.

    This single storey property is located on a holiday site, accessed via an unmade track in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Most of the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust, meaning that the countryside is left unspoilt. Scenic walks of particular note include West High Down, Tennyson Down and Monument, and Headon Warren, which offers some breath-taking views of The Needles.

    Within the holiday site, there is a shop, a launderette, pitch and putt, an outside play area with football posts, and the property itself boasts some fantastic vistas over the downs and the sea. There is direct access from the cliff down onto an unspoilt, traditional sand/shingle beach. Just a couple of minutes’ drive is Freshwater, which features shops, a library, tea rooms, an indoor swimming pool and a number of friendly pubs. The multi-coloured cliffs of Alum Bay are about a 5-minute drive, and 10 minutes in the other direction is the historic sailing town of Yarmouth, fittingly named due to its position at the mouth of the River Yar.

    As well as some splendid walks locally, there are also many tourist attractions to discover. One of the most popular attractions on the island is The Needles Park, which features a chairlift, boat rides, coloured sands, a lighthouse, amusements and glass-blowing demonstrations. Other attractions that lie in close proximity to the property include the UK’s oldest amusement park Blackgang Chine, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Calbourne Water Mill, various National Trust-owned homes and gardens, vineyards, museums, wildlife centres, The Isle of Wight Zoo, Isle of Wight Pearl, Carisbrooke Castle, Osbourne House, and one of the longest-running sailing regattas in the world, Cowes Week. Outdoor pursuits include golf, cycling, riding, sailing, fishing and diving. Beach 800 yards. Shop on site, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Step to entrance. All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with laminate floor. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin (4 steps to second bed). Shower room with toilet.
