Tennyson's View stands on the Military Road and within a two-minute walk of the beach at Freshwater Bay - a tranquil bay where swimming, paddling, fishing and kayaking can be enjoyed. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are spectacular views of Tennyson Down from the balcony which extends along the length of the property.  Tennyson's View is immediately adjacent to the coastal path and miles of scenic footpaths, with awe-inspiring coastal views and can be walked directly from the front door. The trails extend westwards across Tennyson Down to the Needles or eastward to St Catherine's Lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. This area of coastline is protected by the National Trust and is one of the most picturesque areas on the Island. An 18-hole links style golf course where visitors are welcome, enjoys stunning views over the Solent and English Channel and is within a five-minute walk. The sandy bays of Totland and Colwell are within a five-minute drive and fossil hunting, surfing and paragliding can be enjoyed nearby. Cycling is also a major activity here with rides over the downs, and links with a network of cycle paths.

Tennyson's View, built in 2000 on the site of a small hotel, is the wing of a larger property divided into self-contained apartments. It has its own front door and balcony gateway and the accommodation is all on one level. The property has been furnished and equipped with care to provide an attractive and comfortable place to stay for two people. It is centrally heated and double glazed. There is a spacious open-plan living room with a comfortable sofa, television with DVD player and double doors opening on to the balcony; an attractive dining area with open views through the double doors: a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer; a bedroom with a king size bed and fitted wardrobes; a shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC.

A stunning balcony extends along the length of the property, where visitors can unwind and eat meals. Here you can catch glimpses of the sea and downs whilst listening to the sounds of the sea which is so close by. Garden furniture is provided for dining out on the balcony. There is a private parking space for one car at the side of the property - access is without steps. A public house, cafe and tea shop are within five minutes walk; a general store and restaurant are within ten minutes walk. The small town of Freshwater is only a few minutes drive away and here there are a variety of shops, two small supermarkets and a great selection of public houses.

Lovely place to stay with plenty of ammenities, balcony (which catches the late afternoon and evening sun) and parking space. It's a few minutes from the beach and access to the rest of the island is ideal. It was our third stay over the last few years so that says a lot about it.

The property was very well presented, comfortable, and we love the location near Freshwater Bay, the Military Road, Tennyson Down, Mottistone Nat Trust, and Dimbola gallery, museum, and Tea Room.

Dont be put off by the travelling tavern double decker bus opposite your balcony. Noise from music and customers was mooted because you are sheltered by the bus. You can also go and join the fun should you so wish. Limited places to eat and the local supermarkets are not as you might be used to either. But adapt and dont fuss and your stay will be Read morerestful and memorable. Hide

Location is good especially if you like sea swimming, down side was a double decker bus that was used as a bar, the top deck being level with the balcony. Plus a potraloo behind the bus, it was however only there for 3 days but comes back every weekend. The shower was very dirty and in urgent need of a deep clean, likewise the dishwasher. The apartRead morement is well equipped and has a lovely side view of the sea. We would recommend the apartment to a friend but point out the above issues Hide

A lovely apartment in a lovely location close to the sea and beach at Freshwater Bay. This apartment was easily accessible with no stairs and is only a short, flat walk from the car parking area. For walkers, it is located next to the coastal path and a stroll onto Tennyson Down.

Maybe a lock on the side gate. It was very hot and we felt some of the windows couldnt be left open because a stranger could come through that gate onto the balcony. Otherwise this was a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!

A very nice flat in a wonderful location. 30 seconds walk from Freshwater Bay beach, its lovely to wake up to the sound of the sea. Added bonus of having the Travelling Tavern bus bar parked right outside when it isnt hired out - means you have a place to have a drink literally in the door step!

The cottage was wonderful. The proximity to the sea was perfect. It had all the necessary equipment for a short stay. A bbq area for the flats would be a good idea. Even if it is just a non-grass segregated area with a brick place for a portable bbq. The internet could be improved. See above. Other than that I would definitely recommend Tennysons aRead morend would stay there again. Being on the west side is a bonus - not as busy as the east. Hide
