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.

 

Step through the front door and into the modern, cosy apartment. Relax in the spacious open-plan living room, which has double doors which open onto the private balcony. There’s also a comfortable sofa and TV/DVD, as well as an attractive dining area with incredible views. 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 king size 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 glimpses of the sea and downs and breathe in the 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 side of the property you’ll find a private parking space for one car and access to the apartment from the parking area is without steps.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We had a good holiday helped by good weather and lots of nice walks. The appartment was light and airy and very well situated looking out towards Freshwater Bay. We have suggested a topper on the bed and a better TV though we didn't want to watch it much and used my husbands laptop instead. We are both in our 70s so0 found the bed and sofa a bit unRead morecomfortable but otherwise the accomadation was well appointed and it suited us well. Hide

We loved the property: it was clean, airy, and decorated to a high standard. It's all on ground level with a parking place and is ideally sited for getting around the island - either on foot, by car or bus (bus stops are nearby). It is also reassuring to have a helpful contact number should any issue arise. We had a wonderful holiday and look forwaRead morerd to staying there again and would recommend it to other holidaymakers. Hide

Clean and comfortable property for two, ideally situated for exploring the Island. The Bay can get busy at peak times so expect activity outside, but it is quiet at night. There has been a recent upgrade to the bedroom. No wi-fi connection.

Comfortable, spacious, clean apartment providing everything we needed for a relaxing break in beautiful Freshwater Bay. Although not the most private balcony, there was a lovely view of Tennyson Down and glimpse of the sea. Fantastic location, steps from the beach, walks from the door and short drive to the supermarket. Look forward to returning!

The apt is excellent , our only niggle was that from dawn til dusk its not peaceful due to the road noise so if you want peace the balcony is not for you . The location in freshwater is stunning and if you want water sports then you have hit gold . Road noise aside we would return

My wife and I found this to be an excellent holiday apartment. On arrival we found it immaculate. The level of decor and furnishings is very good. The bed could be larger, maybe a king size as I am quite large and it was a bit tight. The TV signal is very poor and maybe satellite should be considered.

A cosy and comfortable apartment for two in a good position with sea views from the balcony. It is furnished in a contemporary style and well equipped with all mod cons. Well appointed for enjoying the beach and sea sports, local walks and eating places, and is a great base for exploring all the Island has to offer.

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.

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!

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
