Positioned just above Freshwater Bay with plenty of off road parking on the gravel drive, it is moments from the beach and conveniently located near shops, cafés and local amenities. Once you have arrived, why not leave the car and tour the island by bus as a regular bus service passes the property.
Inside the property, there is an open plan living room and dining area, perfect for socialising, and features a large TV with Freeview and entertainment on demand, and a baby grand piano. The bay fronted window floods the room with natural light and provides an excellent view onto the starting point of the footpaths that lead on to Tennyson Down, passing the Tennyson Monument and eventually finishing at the iconic Needles rock formations. All the bedrooms offer excellent views to the sea, reminding you that you are on holiday!
The local area consists of Freshwater village and Freshwater Bay.
The village has a selection of small independent shops, cafés and a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool. Freshwater Bay and nearby, Compton Bay attract many visitors and surfers all year round. The Freshwater Bay Golf Club, which overlooks the English Channel, provides stunning coastal sea views from most of its tees and offers a superb day out for golfers of all abilities and is only ½ mile away. The area is also a haven for birdwatchers and walkers with many wonderful walks to be enjoyed not only on West Wight but across the entire island.
The Isle of Wight has become a hot spot for cycling enthusiasts with a choice of challenging off road bridleways, peaceful byways and level, purpose-made tracks running along the former railway line close by. You can choose to cycle to The Needles landmark at Alum Bay, with its coloured sand cliffs and chair lift to the beach, or perhaps take on the full round the island route.
Along the way, amongst the quaint villages and towns, you will find numerous restaurants, pubs, cafés serving tasty local produce and a wine bar to try.
Outdoor pursuits on the island are extremely well catered for and include horse riding, fishing, cycling, paragliding, water sports and golf. There are numerous attractions to discover for all ages. Why not pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and Gardens, Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK, Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Tapnell Farm Park, Carisbrooke Castle, Shanklin Chine, or the sailing towns of Yarmouth and Cowes? Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach ¼ mile. Shop and restaurant ½ mile, pub 1¼ miles
