Property code: 91606

This charming cottage in Freshwater village, with shops, restaurants, tearooms, and pubs, is a real gem. From here, you can easily access Tennyson Down: head across to The Needles and Headon Warren while admiring the island's stunning coastline along the way (2.5 miles). For a day at the seaside, Totland and Colwell have sandy bays within 1.5 miles, or you can take a short drive across the island to the more traditional seaside resorts of Shanklin, Ventnor, or Sandown (all within 21 miles). Compton Bay, with its dinosaur footprints and fossils, is nearby and a must for history lovers as well as those who like to be in the water (4 miles). Nature lovers will also enjoy the variety of plants and animals at Afton Marsh, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (1.5 miles).

Enter through the front gate and proceed down the pretty garden path to the front door. Upon entering, you'll find yourself in the dining room of this beautiful cottage. Make your way through to the comfortable lounge, which is ideal for snuggling up in front of the Smart TV on one of the comfortable sofas. Return to the open-plan kitchen/diner, and you'll discover a well-equipped space with everything you could possibly need to prepare some delicious meals for your stay, as well as a dining table with seating for four where you can sit and enjoy your meals together. Completing this floor is the bathroom with shower over the bath and WC. Climb the stairs after a long day of exploring to find two comfortable bedrooms, one of which is a double room with plenty of storage, and the other with bunk beds. There is a convenient upstairs WC with hand basin that is accessible from both bedrooms.

Stepping outside, you'll discover an enclosed rear garden with a grassed area, and a patio with outdoor furniture where you can unwind and relax in the sun. This property is a must for avid birdwatchers, as the owner has crafted bird boxes and renovated the exterior eaves of the house to encourage birds to nest, which has proved especially popular with swifts. Those guests staying in June - July may be in for a real treat, as they will get the chance to see and hear the swifts depart the UK for warmer climes from the garden of this great property.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double, 1 bunk bed
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC down stairs, plus 1 additional WC with hand basin upstairs
  • Electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and Tassimo coffee machine

  • Enclosed rear garden with patio and garden furniture
  • Free on-street parking nearby (subject to availability)
  • Pub and shop 200 metres, beach 2 miles

  • Please note, in the double bedroom you may be able to hear some nesting noise in June and July from the bird boxes outside

The cottage was ideally located for shops, swimming pool, beach walking distance from the property and the bus stop very near the property. Lots of things to do with children nearby.

Great base for a week on the island. Shops a stones throw away. Garden was great for our dogs and loads of public footpaths to explore. Parking is for a limited time near the house, ok for dropping off and pick ups. Plenty of nearby side streets to leave car safely. Photos on website don't do this property justice.

Cottage is excellent. Clean, comfortable and in a good location. And the treats found in the fridge were most appreciated!

The cottage is located in a nice area, not a centre for tourists which was very relaxing. It is very close to the needles. There is a co-up right opposite to the cottage and that was super convenient. Has a pretty garden. Clean and fully equipped.
