Moonbeam House can comfortably accommodate up to six guests across four bedrooms and is one of a row of four elegant terraced villas, commissioned by Queen Victoria as homes for retired admiralty. The sea views from each house are protected to this day. This splendid Victorian villa retains many of its original period details across its three floors and has attractive gardens to the front and rear of the house. Positioned above Freshwater Bay it’s moments from the beach and conveniently located near shops, cafés and local amenities. Access to all parts of the island is made easy by a regular bus service that passes by the property.

Freshwater is situated at the western tip of the Isle of Wight and consists of Freshwater village and Freshwater Bay. Freshwater village offers a good selection of small independent shops, cafés and a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool. The magnificent high chalk cliffs, rolling downs and delightful beaches at Freshwater Bay and nearby Compton Bay attract many visitors and surfers all year round. The Freshwater Bay Golf Club, which overlooks the English Channel has stunning coastal sea views from most tees and offers a superb day out for golfers of all abilities, whilst the area is a haven for birdwatchers, and walkers with many wonderful walks to be enjoyed not only on West Wight but across the entire Isle of Wight criss-crossing over a much varied island landscape. Locally, Afton Down, the location of the famous 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival, and Tennyson Down are the most popular walks.

A further feature of this property is that it’s able to provide storage for bicycles and sports equipment. The island has become a real hot spot for cycling enthusiasts with a choice of challenging off road bridleways, peaceful byways and level, purpose-made tracks running along the former railway line close by. Cycle to the famous Needles landmark at Alum Bay with its coloured sand cliffs and chairlift to the beach or take on the full round the island route which is 66 miles long, and is used for the annual Isle of Wight Randonnee. Travel along the route at a more leisurely pace and along the way, you will find numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés, amongst the quaint villages and towns serving tasty local produce. A little further afield Cowes is well-known by sailors who come from all over the globe for Cowes Week, the Round the Island Yacht Race and many other sailing events. Whatever you decide, one thing is for sure, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach 500 yards. Shop 350 yards, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

Guest Comments

"Fabulous house, beautifully appointed and comfortable, in a lovely location. Gave us a very relaxed and comfortable holiday week."

Doug, August 2021

"Moonbeam House is a real home from home, very clean and comfortable, with all facilities you need on holiday. It is in a beautiful location just a few minutes walk to the beach. Did not want to leave and hope to return in the future for another lovely relaxing holiday in this beautiful house."

Sarah, August 2021

"Moonbeam House is a beautiful property, lovingly cared for by the current owners, decorated and furnished to a high specification; but retains a ‘home from home’ feel; it was a joy to stay here. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes walk from fresh water bay and the coastal path. The local shop just a few minutes walk away sells fresh produce, and the Piano Cafe just up the road is highly recommended. This was our first time staying in Freshwater Bay and at Moonbeam House but we hope very much to be able to return. Carol & Alan Staffordshire"

"Everything was amazing. Location, cleanliness, well equipped. It’s the most well equipped place I have every stayed in. There was a choice of outside space to sit or eat so you could have sun or shade. Whichever you wanted. Amazing welcome basket of goodies on arrival. Can’t praise it enough. Only bad thing was that we had to leave. Really didn’t want to."

Susan, June 2021

"The house is beautiful and is situated in an amazing location. Beach is just few minutes down the road and costal walk is just cross the road. The scenery near the house is stunning. The house does not have a big garden at the back, but both the front and back gardens are well kept. We had lunch at the front garden one day as the sunshine was so gorgeous. The house owner pays attention to detail in the decoration and it is a home to home - holiday house. Annie also communicated promptly in every questions we asked. The welcome pack at the house upon arrival is generous and delicious.We enjoyed very much to stay at this property!"

"A lovely place to stay, close to the coast and lovely walks, a beautifully presented house with great character and comfortable furnishings. We would certainly recommend it and would stay there again."

Yvonne, October 2020

"What an absolutely marvellous place! It is in a gorgeous location with views over Freshwater Bay and a 5 minute walk down to the beach. The place itself is well and insightfully equipped - having enough plates, glasses and the like not to have to put the dishwasher on after every meal feels like home. And lots of hooks and thoughtful additions to make it feel as if one has a place for everything even if only for a few days. And the decor is beautiful with some lovely design quirks that make it a place to hunker down in as well as a base for beautiful walks to the Needles and the like. And the welcome basket was ace too! Great to be able to have a cuppa on arrival and having oils and condiments was another thoughtful touch. The owners have clearly taken great care to make the experience as joyful for tenants as it is for them. I couldn't recommend more:-)"

Lynn, October 2020

"Moonbeam House is an amazing property. The interior has been designed to the highest quality and everything that you need is available. The additional measures due to the pandemic ensure that you feel safe and secure. This is an ideal base for a holiday on the Isle of Wight, whether you wish to travel over the whole island or spend the time in Freshwater."

Nicola, September 2020

"Excellent accomodation."

James, August 2020

"Absolutely loved Moonbeam. Very comfortable & had everything we could have wanted. Spotlessly clean. Short stroll to the bay. Lovely garden to relax in. We hope to return"
