Set within the owner’s grounds down a privately owned track, The Old Boat Store offers a relaxing retreat for couples and is located in the valley between the West High Downs and Headon Warren. With fantastic coastal walks and beaches along the Heritage Coastline, virtually on your doorstep, this detached property makes a perfect base to explore West Wight and the rest of the island, especially for walkers and cyclists. The Highdown Inn is only a short stroll away offering a selection of beers, wines, spirits and locally sourced seafood and local produce. There is also a convenient farm shop at Stoats Farm along the lane that sells local produce and even ice creams ( very handy after a walk on the downs) or why not try a cup of their island roasted coffee to take away or enjoy on site. There are also four beautiful bays only a short drive away, Totland, Colwell, Alum, and Freshwater Bay. Totland Bay is only about ¾ mile away offering ’The Turf Walk’ and The Waterfront Bar and Restaurant. Here you can enjoy the most stunning scenery, lovely beaches and amazing sunsets, and you can walk from Totland Bay to Colwell Bay along the promenade. Alum Bay with its famous multi-coloured sands is only a short drive and offers The Needles Landmark Attraction and Alum Bay Glass. Freshwater Bay, about 2 miles, is one of the most picturesque beaches in West Wight and lies just to the south of the village of Freshwater. Smugglers once used the caves around the bottom of the chalk cliffs that are exposed at low tide – if you wish to explore them it is best to find a local guide as you can become cut off by the tide. Kayaking is the ideal way to see them and the other small bays, Watcombe and Scratchells. Freshwater beach is popular for surfing and water sports. You will often see boats moor offshore to come ashore here.

The Yar River that runs from Freshwater Bay to Yarmouth has a scenic walk and cycle route along the causeway. Explore, relax and enjoy. Restaurant ¾ miles, shop and pub 200 yards.

Marilyn, August 2021

"Lovely accommodation in a very quiet location. Beautifully clean and comfortable and perfect for exploring further afield although the local bays are so nice to meander along. We definitely would stay at The Old Boat Store again and thoroughly recommend it."

Lynne, July 2021

"A warm welcome from Amanda to this excellent hideaway.We could not have been happier and can only fully endorse the other previous positive comments."

Colin, June 2021

"Had a fantastic time at The Old Boat Store. There’s everything you need in the cottage and it’s absolutely spotless and in such a peaceful location. The local pub is 150 yards away and has a lovely beer garden serving delicious food.Amanda and Julian the owners are really lovely and very helpful. Will definitely be going back."

Dawn, June 2021

"The Old Boat Store is perfect for two. The facilities are first class. Comfortable bed, excellent shower and well equipped kitchen. Peaceful location. Two minutes walk to a pub that serves good meals and a further five minute walk will find you atop Tennyson Down. From there Freshwater and the Needles are both pleasant walks. Would recommend the Waterfront at Totland Bay for a meal overlooking the sea. Amanda was an excellent host. We enjoyed our visit so much we have already booked for next year."

Gary, April 2021

"Scrupulously clean. No concerns at all about staying there during the Covid-19 pandemic. Everything was immaculate and beautifully presented. Had a lovely holiday."

Mary , October 2020

"This place is a little gem and has been meticulously converted from an old boat store by the owners. It was scrupulously clean and the owner's attention to detail in respect of Covid protection was extremely good. It was very comfortable with an excellent en suite shower room. The kitchen may be small but had everything needed and all in very good condition. The local pub is a whole 200 yards away (downhill on the way back) has a good atmosphere and serves good food."

Mike, October 2020

"Beautiful boat shed extremely comfortable and peaceful, owners very kind and friendly very caring."
