Coastguard Cottage description

Built in the 1860s this renovated former coastguards’ cottage is near the end of a quiet, tranquil lane only 150 yards from the beach. 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.
