This lovely cottage is in a prime location for those wishing to explore the whole of the Isle of Wight. Enter the property via the lower ground level, either by the steps or use the path that leads you around the patio area to the front door. You will find three bedrooms which are full of charm with their exposed beams. The master bedroom offers an en-suite shower room, while the twin and another double bedroom are positioned either side of the spacious family bathroom.

The open plan space oozes character with sloping ceilings and beams and also includes a dining area and an excellently equipped fitted kitchen.

Freshwater Bay has magnificent views out towards the English Channel, and is nestled under steep chalk cliffs, with its slate and chalk pebbles, and soft sand below low water, it’s a real children’s paradise.
