Stunning beachfront bungalow within a delightful walking area, a nearby coastal path leads to the stunning Tennyson Down and a sandy beach is right on the doorstep.

Bayside is a charming detached bungalow within a three minute walk of the sea at Colwell Bay on the west side of the Isle of Wight. This is a brilliant walking area with the coastal path offering easy access via Totland Bay and Alum Bay to The Needles on the western tip of the Isle of Wight, and the beautiful Tennyson Down which drops down into Freshwater Bay. Colwell Bay is a quiet coastal spot with a sandy beach at low tide where visitors can swim and paddle. There is an attractive cafe, bar and restaurant with views across the bay, plus a small shop. The promenade can be followed around to Totland Bay. Nearby is the attractive harbour and sailing centre of Yarmouth with its various restaurants, cafes and small shops. Boat trips and fishing can also be enjoyed here. The pretty town of Freshwater with its shops, fresh fish, public houses, sports centre with swimming pool and a golf club is also within a few minutes drive.
