Built in the 1860s this renovated former coastguards’ cottage is near the end of a quiet, tranquil lane only 150 yards from the beach. In the Victorian era the coastguard station formed a front line against smuggling and provided assistance to shipwrecked sailors. Today it is an ideal base for walking, a family holiday, or a peaceful hideaway from hectic lives at any time of the year. For the energetic there’s a hearty walk on nearby Tennyson Down to the Needles, or for those wanting a gentle stroll there’s Freshwater Bay where you can enjoy the sea breeze. West Wight is renowned for its scenic coastline and beaches; Compton, Brook, Alum Bay, Totland and Colwell Bay. Ideal for exploring whether looking for fossils or dinosaur footprints, building castles or enjoying the surf there is something for everyone. Shop 700 yards and pub within 1½ miles.

    Excellent coastal cottage, which was comfortable, warm and well equipped. Very dog friendly too! Couldn’t fault it! There is excellent walking from the doorstep, and friendly local shop which all adds to the pleasure of staying Freshwater Bay!

    We had a lovely two weeks at this cottage. It is situated on the quieter side of the island with lovely walks from it. All the islands dog beaches are is very close proximity and ours enjoyed a beach run every morning. Cottage it's self was very clean and comfortable and we were made very comfortable by Caroline. Two large enclosed gardens were lovely. Only down side for me was the parking. It does have parking but at the end of a small lane. Almost impossible to turn around if there are other cars. My own car was damaged during our stay while parked by someone probably trying to turn, they didn't stop to make my aquitance The only alternative is to reverse in or out and it's a long narrow lane. Great place however and would definitely go back

    Response on behalf of the owner; Great to hear you had a nice two week stay at Coastguard Cottage. Very sorry to hear your car was damaged, the cottages are located down a quiet private lane and we have not been aware of any problems with parked cars previously. Hope to welcome you at Coastguard Cottage again.

    We had a lovely time in Coastguard Cottage. It was well equipped & clean and 3 bedrooms were good for us as a family of four, although the bedrooms are quite small. It was in a good location with the beach just across the road & lovely walks for our dog. The garden front & back were also good to sit in & secure for the dog. We would come back again.
