Freshwater is on the westerly tip of the Isle of Wight and is very popular with self catering visitors. The west side of the Isle of Wight is one of the quietest area of the Island and allows for those keen of walking to explore miles of unspoilt coastline. The Tennyson Trail is one such walk and is named after Alfred Lord Tennyson who built Farringford and made Freshwater his home. Golfers also enjoy the stunning scenery from the 18 hole golf course on Afton Down.
Just a walk from Freshwater Bay and at the most westerly tip are the famous Needles at Alum Bay. There you will find a pleasure park with rides and stalls and the chairlift that takes you over the cliff from where the experience and views are just breathtaking.
