This lovely thatched, stone cottage dates back to 1780 and is situated on the west side of the island within a 10 minute walk of the sea and within a 20 minute walk of the centre of the delightful coastal town of Yarmouth – a small port renowned for sailing. Yarmouth has a variety of small shops, public houses, tea shops and restaurants. The sandy coves of Totland and Colwell Bay are only a few minutes drive away. This is a wonderful walking area within a 10 minute stroll of the sea.

There is also the nearby Freshwater Way – a pleasant walk across fields to the ‘old’ part of Freshwater where there is a lovely church, a farm shop, a good public house for meals and a beautiful area with much bird life around the River Yar.
