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.

    Welcome to the House of Logs, a detached Norwegian-built log house in the peaceful setting of Totland Bay. The house provides a comfortable haven for its guests, whilst the garden is a magnet for wildlife, including red squirrels and badgers (appropriate food is provided). There are glimpses of the Solent and the mainland from the terrace at the front of the house and from some of the first floor rooms. This holiday house is built on a sloping site and most of the accommodation is on the first floor. Opposite the house is the coastal path which runs through Headon Warren, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, to Alum Bay and the Needles, and across to Tennyson Down. The nearest beach is Widdick Chine, which is a short walk away, but there are steps! Totland beach is a little further and is a flat walk with a sandy beach, ideal for bathing. Where possible, local or British products have been used to furnish the house. The wrought iron beds are from the Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Company of Norfolk; Welsh wool blankets have been sourced to make cosy additions to bedding. All the mattresses, sofas, dining furniture and kitchen cabinets are made in England. Original works of art adorn many of the walls. As much re-cycling as possible has been employed, but rest assured that everything is smart, clean and works! The House of Logs is unique. Headon Warren includes bronze age burial mounds, quarries, Hatherwood Battery built in the 1860s, along with precious wildlife, such as Dartford warblers, the small copper butterfly and several unusual insects. The views from the Warren across to the mainland are wonderful. The whole area is an idyllic setting for walking enthusiasts. When you reach the end of Headon Warren, Alum Bay can be seen and a spectacular view of the Needles. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
