Just a stone’s throw from the quiet beach at Freshwater Bay, this self-contained apartment is perfect for a relaxing and romantic coastal getaway on the Isle of Wight.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this apartment enjoys close proximity to the swimming, paddling, fishing and boating on offer at Freshwater Bay. The apartment lies next to a small hotel, in a wing of apartments that have a shared communal garden. From here you have access to the coastal path and other delightful footpaths, all offering spectacular views of the National Trust protected coastline. Walk west across Tennyson Down to the Needles, or east towards St Catherine’s Lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. An 18-hole golf course is within walking distance, while the sandy bays of Totland and Colwell are also close by.

The kitchen is well-equipped with an electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, while there’s also a washer/dryer should you need one during your stay. Call it a night in the charming bedroom, which has a double bed and fitted wardrobes. There is a shower room with WC.


The balcony extends along the length of the property and has its own garden furniture, making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the view and fresh sea air. Why not enjoy your morning coffee and listen to the sea birds, or perhaps dine al fresco?There are also deck chairs in the communal garden. At the rear of the property you’ll find a private parking space for one car.

The property is in a quiet position right on the beach. There is a small shop and nice cafe ( Pipers) about five minute walk away. The property was very comfortable and well equipped - no wi-fi but we learnt to live without it for a week. We would certainly visit again.

Light, airy and clean, backs on to cliff path and easy steps down to beach. Balcony at front faces west (sunsets) and overlooks local community and road, Tennyson down in middle distance. Sea roars to sharp sharp left of balcony (we arrived in a gale!) with a peepo view. Spacious and tasteful in creams and whites with highly individual carpet/rug.

This is an ideal getaway for just two people to enjoy a twin-aspect balcony with stunning views overlooking Freshwater Bay looking towards Tennyson Down. It features a roomy entrance hall with generous rooms off and bathroom with walk-in shower. Well equipped throughout and simply loads of storage space!

Reviewed by Elizabeth, 19th July 2019

The cottage is clean, spacious and well equipped. It does have a view of Tennyson Down but the sea view is partially blocked by an adjoining property and the lifeboat station. Freshwater Bay is very quiet and has few facilities besides a good cafe and general store near Dimbola Lodge, which itself has a good tea room. The beach is stony and steeplyRead more shelving but lots of people were swimming or kayaking. Hide

A wonderful, spacious apartment in the perfect location. It was immaculate and had every item of equipment you could possibly need! So quiet- all you can hear is the sound of the sea with the balcony doors open. This is by far the best holiday home we have rented on the IOW. Have found a new love of walking after staying here - the coastal paths, wRead morehich run right beside the apartment block, and a walk up to the Tennyson monument are a must. We will definitely be booking this apartment again. Hide

The apartment was at the best spot. A 15 min drive to the nearest supermarket, only 30 mins from Queen Victoria 's Palace. The beach was a stone threw from the apartment. It was beautiful, relaxing and I had the best stay EVER. I would highly recommend this apartment and I will be returning.

Had this property book marked for ages and really enjoyed our stay. Excellent location for bracing (late October!) walks across Tennison Down to the Needles and in the opposite direction across Afton Down. Superb clean, well appointed accommodation for a couple.
