    Located just a 10-15 minute walk from the picturesque beach at Freshwater Bay, this delightful semi-detached holiday home is great for couples, whether it be for a full weeks holiday or a short break. The Shieling is pet friendly making it the perfect base to explore all that the western side of the Isle of Wight has to offer with your four-legged friend. Visit Tennyson Down where you can enjoy panoramic views over the Solent, as well as mile after mile of magnificent coastal paths. Situated in Freshwater, The Shieling is only 3 miles from the quaint harbour town of Yarmouth. The fantastic Totland Bay is also nearby where you will find a bar, restaurant and a café to try the local seafood, experience some of the finest sunsets or enjoy a stroll along to neighbouring Colwell Bay. There are spectacular views across the Solent to mainland England, with clear, calm waters and gently sloping sand and shingle beach. For surfers and kite surfing enthusiasts, there is Compton Bay a short drive away.
    The island has become a real hot spot for cycling enthusiasts with a choice of challenging off road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks running along a former railway line. Cycle to the famous Needles landmark or take on the full round the island route, which is 66 miles long and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee held over the May bank holiday. You can also travel along the route at a more leisurely pace and along the way you will find numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés, amongst the quaint villages and towns serving tasty local produce.
    One of the Isle of Wight’s best kept secrets, Compton, offers a 2 mile stretch of contrasting dark and golden sands, with rolling seas, and a stunning backdrop of multi-coloured sandstone cliffs. It’s also a great place to go fossil hunting, and you can book tours on the beach to see the dinosaur footprints in the sandstone ledge at Hanover Point that are exposed at low tide. Whatever you decide, one things for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach ¾ mile. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

    "One of the best weeks we have ever had, and Hackie and Simon were the perfect hosts😊😊😊😊"
    Thomas ‐ 18 Aug 2019
    "What a lovely find!A very comfortable cottage with its own garden.A well fitted kitchen with everything you could wish for, even a separate freezer & dishwasher, which we didn’t need to use.The bathroom is better than average with lots of hot water.The bedroom being on a mezzanine floor with sloping roof, could be a bit of a hazard with bumped heads....but you soon get used to it.A wonderful cottage with very helpful owners....What more could you ask for?Definitely will be back!"

    "We had a lovely time the cottage was just right for us the hosts were fantastic and very welcoming loved the style of the cottage so much that I have taken ideas for my own property. Went on some lovely walks with the dog and spent time on the beach."

    "Fabulous cottage for 2 (plus dog), very comfortable, excellent amenities throughout, including an enclosed lawned garden. Friendly owners live next door who were very helpful. Large Co-Op just down the road and a great pub, The Red Lion, just a shade further to walk. As for walking, there’s a nature reserve directly behind the cottage, and access to the marshes, coast, The Needles, Yarmouth are all walkable from the cottage."
