  • Located in the pretty village of Freshwater, close to the beach at Colwell
Property code: 85321

Enjoy a romantic break away or an active weekend at this wonderful one-bedroom ground floor apartment, located on the west of the Isle of Wight.

Studded at the heart of Freshwater, this charming apartment is a wonderful base for couples keen to explore the Isle of Wight’s windswept countryside and rugged coastline. Choose your route and set off in search of sea vistas and sleepy villages, refuelling with slap-up lunches at welcoming country pubs washed down with local ale.

Simply styled yet cosy throughout, your accommodation may be small but it doesn’t scrimp on comfort. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare all your favourite meals, best enjoyed in the lounge/diner at the bijou-style table. There are deep sofas for evening TV viewing, and when it is time for bed the king-size bedroom is a welcome retreat after a leisurely soak in the bathroom. The true gem of the property is the garden with its ample lawn space and patio with garden furniture. Please note that there are steps up to the grassed area and the patio. Share a bottle of wine and sit back to appreciate the mild microclimate of the island in style. There is off-road parking for one car.

Grab your walking boots and set out to explore, navigating the beautiful landscape to reach the summit of Tennyson Down above Freshwater Bay. This 2.5-mile walk will reward you with awe-inspiring views of The Needles, the perfect backdrop for a picnic lunch. Freshwater also boasts a scenic 4-mile route along the old railway line to Yarmouth where you can wander through the pretty streets admiring the shops and watching the ferries before grabbing a bite to eat at the pub. Freshwater Bay is surrounded by chalk cliffs and has a fascinating history of smuggling 2 miles away, and further along the coastline pretty Totland Bay 1 mile away is popular for swimming and fishing.

Great place to stay. The flat was spotless and very well equipped. Having a fenced in garden for the dog was much appreciated as was the off street parking! And the location was perfect though dangerous for our waists with the Co Op being so close for late night chocolate supplies.

Not customer ready. The cottage was functional. There was a heating issue that WE had to sort on arrival. We booked that cottage as per the photos online. No cushions on very uncomfortable sofa. Outside patio furniture was being used to protect a flattened metal something. Nowhere to hang washing. Shower height not adjustable. I am 5'2 & struggled.Read more Non smoking but persons from other flat did outside & the smell wafted through. I had to shut the door. Property was was white with no character. Hide
