Nestled on the west side of the island, this cottage lies within an excellent walking area. A coastal path leads south to natural local landmark, The Needles, and more walks and cycle trails run northwards to the attractive coastal port at Yarmouth. The sandy bays are popular with islanders and visitors alike, with plenty of swimming, boating, and fishing spots. There’s lots to do inland too, the small market town of Freshwater is within walking distance of the cottage, offering a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and a golf course with gorgeous, panoramic coastal views. 

This charming cottage has stunning garden views throughout. Most rooms are south-west facing, providing a light and sunny environment. The attractive kitchen is equipped with an electric fan oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, a separate freezer and washing machine are available outside in an outhouse. Here you’ll also find a quaint breakfast area with seating for six - a great spot for discussing the day’s plans over your morning coffee. The large open-plan lounge/dining room is the perfect place to unwind, with an open fire that gives a real homely feel. There’s ample seating and a TV/DVD, so the whole family can relax together after a busy day exploring. In the dining area you will also find a woodburner, which is perfect for more formal meals. There’s also a ground floor WC, and a side lobby with washing machine and freezer. Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, as well as a bathroom with rain shower over the bath, and WC.

We've stayed here more than once now, because it's a great location, great for a family that needs 'space' when on holiday, and very well maintained. Thoroughly recommended - except when we want to stay of course!

A beautiful cottage in a quiet location. Well equipped and comfortable. A real home from home. Immaculately presented. An added bonus is the wonderful garden. Well stocked and landscaped. Altogether, a relaxing haven after a day out.

Beautiful cottage in lovely family location. Close to beach and shops. We had excellent weather so sat outside most of the time in the very private and pretty garden that is sunny throughout the day.
