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. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/918/840/918610.jpg W43661

    We greatly enjoyed a return to West Wight after an absence of twenty-seven years. Coastguard Cottage was very well presented and fitted out and it suited all our needs. Well provided with maps and local information as well as the history of the coastguard service. There was a welcome pack for us on arrival.

    You really have to read the instructions on how to get to the cottage, once your in the area. The picture shown is not the way in. You have to enter a private unmade road full of potholes. The signage showing you where to park is old and weathered and the same colour as the fence it sits on, difficult to see, same as the sign on the fence to show you the gate to enter. I do think the furniture needs an upgrade. Upon arrival as we had difficulty getting in we phoned the contact, she wasn't available and we left a message. Surly when you are expecting new guests, you are available. We never heard back, and my wife phoned when we eventually gained entry. On the Sunday having arrived back in the afternoon, the TV didn't have any signal, I went outside to see what was wrong and the aerial was on the floor, not on the wall. I phoned again and left a message. It wasn't till Monday afternoon that I received a message to say that they were going to contact an aerial man to fix the problem. Tuesday I received a message to say that he couldn't arrive till Friday. Now I know this can't be helped, but an no point was a little compensation offered. I think that didn't help the PR. So all in all I think I can say that we didn't enjoy the experience.
