lovely seaside holiday accommodation

Apartment beautifully presented and ideal for a couple looking for peaceful setting with nearby amenities! Would have no hesitation in re-booking on future visit to the Isle of Wight

Fantastic short stay

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a few days away and a base to explore the island. This was perfect, a small apartment but everything we needed , well thought out, spotlessly clean. Perfect view of Freshwater Bay and a short walk to get there. Easy to go all over the island and lovely coming back to at the end of the day . Relaxing in the eve before a lovely sleep in a very comfy bed.So quiet and peaceful. Hot water all the time and heating if needed though luckily we didn't. So much info on the island and a TV and DVD plus digital radio. A carton of fresh milk,biscuits and a bottle of wine awaited us when we arrived , that was a lovely touch.Regular E Mails from the owners were great with all the info we needed. We are already planning our next trip! Absolutely perfect for a couple to recharge and see the beautiful island.

Lovely apartment, lovely balcony with view

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Bay Close and we were very impressed with the standard of the apartment, which was very clean and well presented. It is located just a short stroll up from the promenade at Freshwater Bay, and very quiet and peaceful: along a private cul-de-sac so there was very little passing traffic and no noise disturbance at all - really just people walking their dogs on their way up Tennyson Down. There is an old fashioned grocery store called Orchard Brothers a short way further up the road, passing a lovely piano café on the way to it. We went there several times for morning coffee.

If you want to explore West Wight this is a perfect base. If you don't want to go far, you can leave the car in the designated parking space and walk everywhere - into Freshwater itself, and up Tennyson Down for spectacular views back to the bay, over to Alum Bay and the Needles and even views towards the mainland.

One of the nicest features of the apartment is the balcony, with a view over the bay and the outlying rocks and also inland, to where the hill climbs up along the coast to Afton Down.

We would recommend this apartment and would definitely book again if coming back to this part of the island.
