If you want to be in a gorgeous spot on the far western tip of the Isle of Wight choose luxury cottages in Freshwater. Boasting one of the most picturesque beaches on the island this is a great holiday destination for families and water sport enthusiasts who can enjoy crystal clear water and white cliffs surrounding this idyllic cove. In Freshwater village, you’ll find all the local facilities you could wish for in within a bustling shopping centre, perfect if you’re self-catering. Quirky independent shops sit alongside popular high street names and there are plenty of places to eat and drink to enjoy the fresh local food and drink.
The unique flint and chalk pebble beach provides a spectacular back drop for the dramatic waves breaking on the famous Stag and Mermaid Rocks that have sheared off and tumbled into the sea over time. At low tide a rock ledge is revealed which is perfect for rock pooling and to the east of the bay sand is revealed to practise your sand castle building skills. From the pebbly beach you can wander along a coastal path up to Tennyson Down. Here 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 stand amongst the dramatic white water.
Take the children down to the Needles Meteorite at Compton Bay and search for dinosaur footprints at low tide 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.
