Step inside to find the gorgeous kitchen/dining-room, decorated in calming tones, with its double doors opening out onto the patio and the spacious, private garden beyond. With the sea just a few minutes’ walk away from the end of the garden, holiday days can be spent in the best way - with a refreshing dip in the sea, before heading back for breakfast on the sunny patio. The Gate has an open plan layout with plenty of space for the family to spread out and relax; truly getting away from it all for a well-earned break. The sitting-room has two comfortable sofas, perfect for cosying up and watching a film at the end of the day. There are two beautiful bedrooms, one of which is a ’zip and link’ super kingsize or twin beds, you choose! The other is a pretty double bedroom with doors leading straight out to the sunny garden. There is a lovely large shower-room and two separate WCs making it a perfect property for a family or a group of friends to come together. Freshwater Bay is one of the most picturesque beaches in West Wight and lies just to the South of the town of Freshwater. The beach is covered in a mixture of grey flint and chalk pebbles that make a unique sound as the waves rise and fall onto the shore. There is sand below the low water mark and some sandy areas to sit if you walk to the more eastern side of the bay. There is also a rock ledge revealed at low tide at this side, which is great for rock pooling with your kids. Smugglers once used the caves around the bottom of the chalk cliffs that are exposed at low tide – if you wish to explore them it is best to find a local guide as you can become cut off by the tide. Kayaking is the ideal way to see them and the other small bays. This beach is popular for surfing and water sports and boats will moor offshore to come ashore. The Freshwater Independent Lifeboat is launched from this bay when required by those in trouble at sea. Overlooking the bay is the Albion Hotel that houses a public bar or visit the Dimbola Museum and galleries for an afternoon tea.
