A handsome coastal retreat with a sunny west-facing garden, ideally situated just 500 metres from the iconic shores of Freshwater Bay. This elegant abode is ideal for a family escape or reunion with friends plus up to four waggy-tailed companions. Embark on a scenic coastal saunter along the clifftop of Tennyson Down (2 miles) and drink in glistening vistas across the English Channel. Back at base, pop a bottle of fizz and graze through a snack board perched in the sun-trap patio garden.

This tastefully appointed property features a thoughtfully styled interior with clean lines, eclectic artwork, and striking original features. Towel off soggy paws and unlace sandy shoes on the porch before venturing inside. Pad along the Victorian tiled hallway. Be lulled into the lounge by the crackling wood burner nestled in an intricate fireplace, then curl up on the polished leather armchairs with a tipple. Browse the Smart TV to enjoy an array of entertainment options. For a formal dining affair, congregate in the airy dining room and portion out a selection of tempting dishes. Amateur chefs can potter in the shaker kitchen styled in soothing eggshell blue tones. In warmer months, throw open the French doors to create a breezy indoor-outdoor social space. When night falls, ascend the grand staircase to the sleeping areas. Choose between two tranquil doubles and a cosy bunk for the little ones. Outside, bask in the morning sun from the paved patio, enjoy ball-throwing antics in the enclosed garden, or fire up the BBQ.

Art lovers of the group can admire the original works on display at the Dimbola Museum and Galleries (500 metres) while the foodies sample seasonal produce and fine wines in the heart of Freshwater (1 mile). For a breathtaking beach experience, don't miss the white cliff-backed shores of Freshwater Bay (500 metres).

Thus is a truly lovely property in a wonderful location. Every amenity in kitchen provided...a real home from home. We were welcomed with a baked tea loaf on arrival. High fenced garden so our pups were very safe. Superb walks nearby
