Freshwater Bay not particularly commercialised and this fact adds to its "charm". Small bay with kayaks, boards., etc., available to be hired. and the view from the cottages towards the sea is exactly as shown on brochure. We were able to see some of the cruise liners in the distance. Some superb footpath walks. We are returning, this time for an Autumn holiday.

We had a lovely stay in Freshwater, it had everything we needed and it is not that far from anywhere on the island for a day out. We thought Yarmouth, although small, was the better town for a walk round and lunch.
The scenery of Freshwater Bay is superb and the outlook from the apartment is mesmerising. The apartment is in excellent condition and has every modern convenience. We didn't want to leave and will certainly return summer or winter. There are plenty of good places to eat locally and would certainly recommend The Piano Bar and The Red Lion.

Best location we've ever had. The sea view is amazing. Watching the sun set from you own patio is special, or take your wine onto the beach, 20 seconds walk!
Mrs Stevens June 2021
Lovely location. very comfortable beds and well appointed shower and bathrooms
Mr Matthews May 2021
The property exceeded our expectations. It was delightful to receive an early contact text from the housekeeper (Karen) to check that we were in OK and asking if we needed he help. A wonderful 'home from home'. Every detail and need was catered for. 'Getting settled' supplies were more than we dared hope for which meant we were instantly on holiday!
An immaculately turned out apartment, for which the housekeeper must be proud. Karen should be complemented on her 'customer care'.

An absolutely amazing home and location, the view through the patio doors of an ever changing seascape is incredible. Step outside the door and you’re on the costal path walking into the sunrise... if your looking for a luxurious home located in the midst of incredible beauty this place is for you. I would highly recommend rising with the sun at least once.

Your view is lovely to read - thank you so much! You paint a wonderful picture of mornings on the coast path watching the sunrise and afternoons gazing at the view. We hope that future guests watch the sunrise too! Looking forward to welcoming you back or helping to find another Classic Cottage. Sarah, Customer Support

Highly recommended! A very comfy apartment in a fabolous location with an absolutely stunning view. Shame about the broken patio door that couldn';t be opened. Hopefully it will be fixed as we would love to come back one day.
Mr Brown August 2020
Stunning location with views across the bay and superb access to the beach. Also a good base for accessing major roads across the island. We had a wonderful holiday, a really enjoyable week. Would be lovely to return another year.
Mrs Elliott-Moore July 2020
Lovely location for the beach, but take beach shoes as it's very stoney.

All of the above can be mentioned on your review page.
Mr Adams September 2018
Perfect situation for walkers as you can walk from the house along the coast, up Tennyson Down, up through the golf course, and along paths to Freshwater and Yarmouth. It's a great place to stay and very comfortable.
