Our refurbished Victorian property, in the heart of Freshwater Bay, is located just a few minutes walk from the beach and borders footpaths and cycle routes in an area of outstanding natural beauty. St Agnes, the Island's only thatched church, Dimbola Lodge photography museum and Tennyson Downs are located at the end of the road.
The entire property underwent complete renovation during 2014/16. Original period features have been restored but the house is now fit for the 21st century; rooms are equipped with USB charging points and Smart TVs connected to high speed Wi-Fi.
The Bay has been certified as a Gold standard Green Leaders from TripAdvisor. Solar panels provide much of the building's electricity, heating and hot water, whilst lighting is provided by the latest energy saving LEDs and sensors turn lights on and off as required.
We've teamed up with Jenny Andrews-Smith, one of the Island's best and most in demand yoga teachers, to offer a perfect package of relaxation, mindfulness, stimulation and general wellness in West Wight.
With over 11 years yoga experience Jenny will run bespoke yoga sessions to meet individual abilities, whether you practise yoga on a regular basis, or want to experience it for the first time. These will take place in the stunning setting of Freshwater Bay (wet weather options also available).
You will get to practise your new mindfulness techniques whilst exploring the breathtaking landscape of West Wight in some carefully planned walks in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Not forgetting to reward the whole body, we're also including a champagne afternoon tea at Jireh House, the oldest and most popular tearoom in West Wight: you are on holiday after all!
Available Mondays to Thursdays throughout the year except July and August.
