    About this property

    This fantastic coastal property is ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway in western Isle of Wight.
    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.
