  • Beautiful cottage in the heart of the lovely village of Freshwater, known for its picturesque bay and beautiful scenery

Property code: 91606

A charming country property with a grassy rear garden, perfectly positioned for adventures in Freshwater and the surrounding coastline. This breezy hideaway is ideal for ocean-loving families or couples and their four-pawed companions. Soak in sweeping ocean vistas as you trek through the heather-topped trail of Headon Warren (1.5 miles), then gather for a pre-dinner tipple and snack board in the airy lounge.

This cottage boasts a bright country interior with clean lines, soft terracotta tones, and exposed brickwork. Pad along the leafy pathway and slip off sandy shoes at the front door. Stepping into the dining space, perch at the table to thumb through a local guidebook or sink onto the sofa to up rest weary feet. Venturing further into the property, cook up a simple supper in the bright shaker kitchen with wooden worktops. After dinner, retire to the lounge and snuggle up on the plump seats. Raid the games selection or flick through the Smart TV then crack open the chocolates for a sweet treat. Completing the ground floor is a sleek family bathroom. Ascend the staircase to find two peaceful bedrooms to rest up in, including a tranquil double and a spacious bunk room. Outside, start the day with an al fresco breakfast spread on the garden bench and spot the swifts darting in the summer seasons.

Brave an invigorating wild dip in the waters of Totland Bay (1.5 miles) or simply while away sun-soaked afternoons lounging on the sandy beach. Budding paleontologists can fossil-hunt on the rugged cliff-backed shores of Compton Bay (4 miles) while the wildlife-lovers traverse the reedbeds of Afton Marsh (2 miles) to spot local hares and birds.

  • Enclosed rear garden with patio and garden furniture

  • Please note, in the double bedroom you may be able to hear some nesting noise in June and July from the bird boxes outside
  • Arrival: 16:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details

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.
