Located a stone's throw from Freshwater Bay, The Gate is a superb newly renovated ground floor apartment by the sea. This simply wonderful retreat has been designed and decorated to create a blissful coastal vibe, with plenty of original touches throughout.
Step inside to find the gorgeous kitchen/dining-room, decorated in calming tones, with its double doors opening out onto the patio and the spacious, private garden beyond. With the sea just a few minutes' walk away from the end of the garden, holiday days can be spent in the best way - with a refreshing dip in the sea, before heading back for breakfast on the sunny patio.
The Gate has an open plan layout with plenty of space for the family to spread out and relax; truly getting away from it all for a well-earned break. The sitting-room has two comfortable sofas, perfect for cosying up and watching a film at the end of the day. There are two beautiful bedrooms, one of which is a 'zip and link' super-king size or twin beds, you choose! The other is a pretty double bedroom with doors leading straight out to the sunny garden. There is a lovely large shower-room and two separate WCs making it a perfect property for a family or group of friends alike.
Freshwater Bay is one of the most picturesque beaches in west Wight, a mixture of flint and pebbles with sand below the water mark, making it ideal for swimming - don't forget your swimsuit! A rocky ledge is revealed at low tide making it a great place for rock pooling for the younger ones. Trust us, it will keep them entertained for hours! Hop in a kayak and discover the series of caves in the chalk cliffs to the right-hand side of the bay which were once used by smugglers. Kayak hire is available, and we recommend a guided kayak tour which is an excellent way to explore safely and take advantage of the local knowledge. If you enjoy catching a wave or two, many surfers frequent the beaches on this stretch of coast, along with nearby Compton Bay. You are quite simply spoilt for choice on which beach to explore. The coastline on this side of the Island is stunning, with a vast choice of walks to choose from; both inland and coastal. You can pick up the Tennyson Trail from Freshwater Bay which will take you to Alum Bay and The Needles. The sea views along the way are breathtaking; you will not be disappointed. Our Freshwater webcam overlooks beautiful Freshwater Bay - take a peek before your holiday to get you excited!
There are also several cafes and restaurants within walking distance of The Gate, The Piano being one of them. Serving great food, coffee and delicious home-made cakes, this is the perfect place to stop off for a bite to eat before you head off to the beach. They sometimes have live music playing in the evenings, a piano player of course! The town of Yarmouth is a short drive from The Gate and also has a great choice of cafes, restaurants and independent shops. The Terrace and The George both have outdoor seating areas overlooking the sea - a fantastic place to dine whilst watching the busy boating activity on this stretch of the Solent. The ferry from Lymington arrives into Yarmouth, which is approximately a 10 minute drive to The Gate. This Classic Cottage is a real treat and the perfect base to discover the delights of the Isle of Wight.
