About the home
This lovely spacious and peaceful house, which is graded four stars by Visit England, is on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the National Trust coastal path adjoins the garden, running down to the beach in one direction and up to Headen Warren with its stunning views and enchanting pathways in the other. The garden is home to red squirrels, rabbits and pheasants.
There are cosy pubs and good restaurants only a short distance away and we can recommend somewhere special for a great meal out. Bring walking shoes for crispy walks across the Warren and Needles headland. For little ones the Needles Pleasure Park is nearby, offering chairlift rides down to the beach and various other amusements.
From Headen Warren you can walk across to Tennyson Down and down to The Needles pleasure park and beach. Headen Warren itself is criss crossed with charming little paths leading amongst the heather to outstanding views over The Needles and beyond to Studland Bay and Bournemouth on a clear day.
Totland and Colwell Bays are lovely sandy beaches, particularly Colwell, with safe bathing and interesting rock pools for the young. The Waterfront Restaurant and bar in Totland Bay is a good place to sit with a drink and perhaps a meal and gaze out over the water - on a clear evening the sunsets are beautiful. Colwell Bay just around the Headland has an excellent waterfront bar/restaurant 'Barefoot on the Beach' which is very child friendly, a beach cafe and a comprehensive beach shop selling all sorts of beach toys and hiring out wetsuits and body boards as well.
There are good shops in Freshwater nearby for groceries, fresh meat and fish, including lobster and crab, and a good farm shop. The charming little town and port of Yarmouth with its ferry links to Lymington is a short ten minute drive away. It has many interesting shops as well as pubs and restaurants and the lovely George Hotel with its seafront garden. You can hire bikes and cycle along the old railway line beside the River Yar to the old part of Freshwater for lunch at The Red Lion.

The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is an ideal holiday destination offering beautiful landscapes, beaches and charming small villages. Made popular by Queen Victoria who had her maritime residence at Osborne close to Cowes, the Island is famous for sailing in the Solent, its beautiful coastline including sandy beaches, spectacular countryside and long sunshine hours.
Many people come to the Island for the spectacular coastal and country walks - the Island has a network of footpaths, many of them up on the Downs offering wonderful views. The West Coast is particularly beautiful with Compton Bay's long sandy beach being popular for swimming, surfing and interesting dinosaur walks and fossil finds. Charming Freshwater Bay is a good starting point for the Tennyson Trail - a dramatic coastal path with far reaching views.
The Totland / Totland Bay area
Totland Bay is a peaceful countryside area yet right by the beach about four miles outside Yarmouth on the way to Alum Bay and The Needles.
Places of interest nearby apart from the beaches are The Needles Pleasure Park, Dimbola Lodge, Tennyson Down, Yarmouth Castle and the River Yar.
Bicycles are available for hire in Yarmouth - the area around Yarmouth offers lots of flat paths and tracks to cycle on.
Totland Bay and Colwell are safe sandy beaches - Colwell is particularly child friendly with lots of beach shops and wetsuits plus bodyboards to hire.

We have just come back from a week at Little Mount. The house is beautiful and located in a lovely part of the Isle of Wight. There are lovely walks straight from the garden with breathtaking... more

We would highly recommend staying at Little Mount. Its a characterful, spacious and well equipped holiday home. The owners are very friendly but don't intrude once you are settled in, and the accommodation provided all we needed and more. The big bonus is being able to get on to the coastal path from the back garden which leads up to the Needles where there are amazing views. There is so much to do on the Island - we did two weeks but would have loved to stay longer, so that says it all.

We stayed in Little Mount over the (rainy) Easter weekend. It's a beautiful house - lovely garden (home to red squirrels and rabbits amongst the flowers) with a view down to the sea.... more
