This unique caponier apartment is set within the moat of Fort Redoubt, located on the cliffs of Freshwater Bay. Originally served as army barracks it has now been converted into holiday accommodation.

Sat above Freshwater Bay this distinctive caponier apartment linked to Fort Redoubt, a Palmerston Fort built under Prime Minister Lord Palmerton during the Victorian period in 1856, is steeped in history. The fort was originally constructed to provide defence against the French who might land at Freshwater Bay in order to attack the Needles battery. The caponier was constructed to enable the soldiers to shoot along the moat if the enemy should attack the Redoubt in this way. It makes for a fantastic base to explore the many activities and attractions nearby, from the water sports available on its doorstep at Freshwater Bay to The Needles park close by. With over 70 miles of Coastline, there are plenty of beaches to choose from. This former derelict building has been transformed into comfortable and spacious holiday accommodation, ideal for families to come and enjoy this rare offering.
