Set within the owner’s grounds down a privately owned track, The Old Boat Store offers a relaxing retreat for couples and is located in the valley between the West High Downs and Headon Warren. With fantastic coastal walks and beaches along the Heritage Coastline, virtually on your doorstep, this detached property makes a perfect base to explore West Wight and the rest of the island, especially for walkers and cyclists. The Highdown Inn is only a short stroll away offering a selection of beers, wines, spirits and locally sourced seafood and local produce. The open top bus stops outside the pub, which is another great way to explore the island. There are also four beautiful bays only a short drive away, Totland, Colwell, Alum, and Freshwater Bay. Totland Bay is only about ¾ mile away offering ’The Turf Walk’ and The Waterfront Bar and Restaurant. Here you can enjoy the most stunning scenery, lovely beaches and amazing sunsets, and you can walk from Totland Bay to Colwell Bay along the promenade. Alum Bay with its famous multi-coloured sands is only a short drive and offers The Needles Landmark Attraction and Alum Bay Glass. Freshwater Bay, about 2 miles, is one of the most picturesque beaches in West Wight and lies just to the south of the village of Freshwater. 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, Watcombe and Scratchells. Freshwater beach is popular for surfing and water sports. You will often see boats moor offshore to come ashore here.
The Yar River that runs from Freshwater Bay to Yarmouth has a scenic walk and cycle route along the causeway. Explore, relax and enjoy. Shop and restaurant ¾ miles, pub 200 yards.

    The old boat house had every We could need! Very comfortable exceptionally clean and a little gem if you want quiet privacy. Amanda is a fantastic host there if you need her but leaves you alone to enjoy your stay. Thank you so much xx

    extremely well equipped accommodation. Lovely quiet location. Lovely hosts. Left to own devices,but hosts always available if needed. Although weather left a bit to be desired this did not stop us from getting about as we walked everywhere. The pub which is 200 yards away comes highly recommended,the food is superb and staff lovely and helpful. The whole experience was joyous.

    The house is comfortable, and in a quiet location, well placed for holidaying in the west of the island. Amanda and her husband gave us a very warm welcome and were very helpful.

    We stayed from 28th June 2019 for one week. When we arrived we had a warm welcome from Amanda who was kind and thoughtful realising we had been travelling for some time. The Old Boatstore has everything you could wish for and every detail has been thought of. Julian has very cleverly restored this special building to the highest of standards. We had gifts waiting for us with biscuits cake wine and even a bottle of milk in the fridge. Tea and coffee were also supplied in fact you did not need to bring anything other than your clothes! Whilst there we walked to the Tennyson monument and had a picnic amazing views and the Needles one evening stunning sunsets. We had a wonderful Sunday roast at the Waterfront. It's an idyllic place to stay and we would recommend this outstanding spot and The Old Boatstore. Thank you Amanda and Julian for making this holiday so special.

    Very nice people, very welcoming. The place itself however is very small. The bedroom is a good size but the lounge is tiny. I have compared it to where we stayed last week which was much larger and less money.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. We are sorry you found the lounge area smaller than the previous property you had stayed at. People have only ever commented on what a lovely space the conversion of The Old Boat Store is. We do thank you for personally commenting to us on how impressed you were with how the conversion has been done and thank you for your nice comments in the visitors book.

    We have just spent a very enjoyable week in the Old Boat Store. The cottage was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Everything you could possible need was provided. The owners, Amanda and Julian were very friendly and eager to make sure you had everything you wanted. There are lots of lovely walks straight from the cottage on the coastal paths and lots of places to visit. If we return to the Isle of Wight the Old Boat Store will definitely be our first choice.
