The cottage is lovely, in a nice quiet part of Freshwater. Just a short walk to the small but lovely beach down the road. A little overpriced compared to similar sized and similar located cottages but we had a lovely time here.

Neat clean and tidy, Sunny court yard, Nice restaurant / coffee bar about metres away near to a grocery shop with great cheese counter. Beach 200 metres away.

Excellent location in the quieter corner of IOW. Colwell Bay and Totland have good nearby beaches. Great walking on the Downs. Plenty of space and a lovely courtyard to sit out. Enjoyed the upstairs sitting room but can be a bit too warm for sleeping.
