6 Coastguard Cottages is formerly the quarters of the Coastguard Station officers, now cosily decorated it makes for a peaceful island retreat. Positioned in a stunning coastal location, the property enjoys uninterrupted views of National Trust countryside and coastline, as well as of Compton Bay (great for surfing) and Freshwater Bay.
Full of character and charm, this semi-detached period property will make you feel at home as soon as you step inside. The sitting/dining-room is warm, relaxed and welcoming; comfortably adorned with cosy furnishings and a beautiful farmhouse table. Here you can tuck into a family meal around the table or sink into a sofa and enjoy some restful reading. In the galley kitchen there are a range of modern, integrated appliances as well as a washing machine and tumble-drier, ideal after muddy walks on the coast path.
On the first floor you'll find the bathroom, with a shower cubicle and bathtub, plus three bedrooms, all tastefully furnished with patchwork bedspreads, wooden furniture and soft furnishings. The main bedroom features a generous king-size double bed, ornate wardrobe and charming dressing table. Here you can wake up and get ready for the day as the sun rises over the sea. Next to the main bedroom is a smaller twin room containing a miniature desk, perfect for taking a moment out of your day to sit down and write a postcard. The third bedroom, also containing twin beds is set to the front of the property. Overlooking the countryside and with sea views in the distance, this is a magical room for the younger ones to wake up in.
To the front, sides and rear of the property you'll find expansive lawns, complete with garden furniture, great for al fresco dinners or a sunny game of bowls. And the generous driveway provides private parking for up to two vehicles.
A short distance from the house is a footpath leading down to Compton Bay, which allows your furry friends on part of the beach. Further along the coast you have Freshwater Bay, Sudmoor Point and the Dinosaur's Footprint. And just short drive away is The Needles Headland, the picturesque port town of Yarmouth and the National Trust's Mottistone Gardens and Estate.
There's also a great local selection of cafes and restaurants, including Thompson's in Newport and Pamela's in Yarmouth. And with coastal and inland footpaths in every direction, 6 Coastguard is in a dream location for keen walkers.
