Old Coastguard's is a character cottage that has recently been restored to an extremely high standard and awarded 4 Stars by Visit Britain.
Sumptuous furnishing graces light filled rooms, with breathtaking views to Tennyson Down, the Solent and Headon Warren. The cottage’s location, nestled between the two downs and as one of the most westerly properties on the Isle of Wight, within walking distance of Alum Bay and the Needles, make it a dream location for walking holidays. The cottage is secluded, surrounded by open fields, yet Warren Farm, an award winning tea rooms, and the Highdown Inn, serving delicious local food and ales, are both within walking distance.
The property is rich with history and a stay at Coastguard's can include access to 'the Lookout', a delightful two room cottage with high bunk beds, formerly a lookout cottage where the coastguards would watch for smugglers coming up from Alum Bay.
The old outhouse has been converted to a luxurious wood-burning sauna, complete with heated outdoor shower. The sauna’s porthole window looks out over the fields to Tennyson and the sunset.
The main cottage sleeps 3 in a master bedroom and a single. The capacity can be extended up to five if a double sofa bed in the small reading room is used, and even to seven if the Lookout is hired, for a small extra fee.
