Located within walking distance of Freshwater Bay, stopping en route at the charming Piano Cafe for a spot of lunch or coffee and home-made cake, Benhams is an ideal base. The breathtaking views from the bay, taking in the Needles, are truly something to be admired. The beach at Freshwater Bay is a mixture of grey flint and chalk pebbles creating a unique sound as the waves hit the shore. Superb for swimming when the tide is in with sand underfoot as you brave it out to deeper waters. Smugglers used the caves around the bottom of the chalk cliffs and the best way to see these are in kayaks which can be hired from Adventure Activities based at Freshwater Bay who offer a guided tour, a fantastic experience for the whole family.
Benhams is a spacious, light and comfortable house with a mature and enclosed rear garden. There are several seating areas to enjoy the outdoor space and soak up the Island sunshine. The ground floor has an open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas, and doors leading out to a conservatory. The conservatory has additional soft seating to put your feet up with a good book and glass of wine. There is a separate snug with television on the ground floor, for the kids to have their own space and you yours! The house has plenty of space for the whole family to spread out and enjoy a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Wight.
All of the four bedrooms are on the first floor, three doubles and a twin. The main bedroom has an en suite shower-room and there is an additional family bathroom with bath and shower attachment. All four of the bedrooms are a good size and tastefully furnished, and two of the doubles to the rear have a lovely aspect over the garden.
Freshwater is on the west coast of the Island and has an abundance of stunning beaches and coastal walks to choose from. The Tennyson Trail, for the accomplished walkers, is a fourteen mile walk from the Needles to Carisbrooke. It passes through some of the most wonderful scenery the Island can offer including Brighstone Forest, Afton Down and Tennyson Down. As this Classic Cottage is dog-friendly, your four-legged friend will be over the moon to be part of the adventure. Benhams is a great base to explore the Island and all the wonderful things we have to offer. There is private parking for up to three cars.
