  • Charming cottage situated on the cliff top above Freshwater Bay
  • Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with wonderful walks from the doorstep
  • Relax in the garden and appreciate the stunning sea views of the bay, south coast and Tennyson Down
Property code: IC088

Set in an enviable position overlooking Freshwater Bay, this property is ideally located for a coastal escape. It’s the perfect secluded spot for a couples’ escape, although there’s plenty of space for your beloved hound to join in the adventure. The cliff-top location will certainly get tails wagging; from here, explore the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or venture down to the bay for a morning swim.

 

The airy single-storey property is modern and bright, with plenty of original features retained to give it a real cosy charm. Prepare a romantic meal in the contemporary kitchen, where through the open door you can watch as Fido enjoys the fresh coastal air in the large private gardens. Outside, you’ll find a wooden table and chairs that offers a delightful spot for an evening drink as you soak up the simply breathtaking view. On cool evenings, snuggle up in front of the wood burner, set into a charming brick fireplace. Retire to the homely and inviting bedroom, where in the morning you can throw open a door to the garden and let the outside in as you sip your morning coffee from the comfort of your bed.

 

Discover a new leash of life as you explore the walking and stick-chasing routes the Isle of Wight has to offer. Follow the coastal path towards The Needles at the western tip of the island (4 miles) or venture southeast towards St. Catherine’s Lighthouse (14 miles). Discover miles of unspoilt beaches and important wildlife habitats on the Tennyson Heritage Coast, including the well-known dinosaur footprints at Brook Bay (3.5 miles). To the north, visit the Hamstead Heritage Coast which runs from Thorness (12.5 miles) to Bouldnor (4 miles); a tranquil coastline with secret inlets and creeks, plus the National Nature Reserve at Newtown (7 miles).

The cottage is ideal for a couple on a break to the aisle of Wight. If you like being away from others but close enough to the amenities this place is ideal. We chose it for these reasons! Everything is supplied and easy car parking is a big advantage. We very much enjoyed our stay and will certainly consider again when we return.

Our stay at Moonfleet Cottage was just perfect, such a quaint little place in a wonderful setting. Waking up to the sound of the sea followed by a brisk walk up and down Tennyson Down with Winston ( our Black Lab ) and a coffee sat at the Seaview table in the garden... what's not to like. The Cottage itself has been cleverley restored with lovely fRead moreeatures and so practical. Our week on the IOW went so smoothly and returning every day to Moonfleet just felt like coming home..just so lovely. Hide
