Just a stone’s throw from the quiet beach at Freshwater Bay, this self-contained apartment is perfect for a relaxing and romantic coastal getaway on the Isle of Wight.

Tennyson's View stands within a two-minute walk of the beach at Freshwater Bay - a tranquil bay where swimming, paddling, fishing and boating can be enjoyed. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are spectacular views of Tennyson Down from the balcony which extends along the length of the property. Visitors are also welcome to relax in the communal garden which sits above The Esplanade, with panoramic views across the bay. Tennyson's View is immediately adjacent to the coastal path and miles of scenic footpaths, with awe-inspiring coastal views and can be walked directly from the front door. The trails extend westwards across Tennyson Down to the Needles or eastward to St Catherine's Lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. This area of coastline is protected by the National Trust and is one of the most picturesque areas on the Island. An 18-hole golf course where visitors are welcome, enjoys stunning views over the Solent and English Channel and is within a five-minute walk. The sandy bays of Totland and Colwell are within a five-minute drive and fossil hunting, surfing and paragliding can be enjoyed nearby. Cycling is also a major activity here with rides over the downs, and links with a network of cycle paths.

Tennyson's View, built in 2000 on the site of a small hotel, is the wing of a larger property divided into self-contained apartments with communal gardens on the seaward side. It has its own front door and balcony gateway and the accommodation is all on one level. The property has been furnished and equipped with care to provide an attractive and comfortable place to stay for two people. It is centrally heated and double glazed. There is a spacious open-plan living room with a comfortable sofa, television with DVD player and double doors opening on to the balcony; an attractive dining area with open views through the double doors: a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washer/dryer; a bedroom with a double bed and fitted wardrobes; a shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC. Central heating and electricity is at no extra charge.

A stunning balcony extends along the length of the property, where visitors can unwind and eat meals whilst enjoying the view and hear the relaxing sounds of the sea which is so close. Garden furniture is provided for dining out on the balcony and in addition, deck chairs are available for use in the communal garden. There is a private parking space for one car at the rear of the property - access is without steps. A public house, cafe and tea shop are within five minutes walk; a general store and restaurant are within ten minutes walk. The small town of Freshwater is only a few minutes drive away and here there are a variety of shops, two small supermarkets and a great selection of public houses.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Had this property book marked for ages and really enjoyed our stay. Excellent location for bracing (late October!) walks across Tennison Down to the Needles and in the opposite direction across Afton Down. Superb clean, well appointed accommodation for a couple. Freshwater is a couple of minutes drive away with a good range of shops and a new largeRead more Coop for provisions if you want to eat in or there are 2 local pubs within a 20 or so minute walk. Would not hesitate to return - Thank you. Hide

A very lovely cottage, ideal for two people. No noise from other apartments. Quiet at night, freshwater bay is beautiful with plenty to do. Good food at the piano and red lion in freshwater. Great walking. An ideal get away.

A well designed property in a very good location. Ideal for two people. Very well appointed for self catering. A perfect place for tourists and walkers alike. Freshwater suits people who like the quieter part of the LOW.

A lovely relaxing week, helped by some fabulous weather! Very comfortable apartment, tastefully decorated with a classy nautical theme, and very well equipped. Fantastic to be so close to the beach and to see the sea from the balcony; loved watching the sun setting. Hope to return again!
