Freshwater vacation rentals

When nature calls, Freshwater has the answer

When nature calls, head to Freshwater. A guided tour with an island specialist is a must, offering a glance at everything from sightseeing standouts to homey shopping options in the cozy town center. If you fancy marine life, keep a close watch for the dolphins that occasionally splash through the bay. The outskirts are dotted with pristine campsites with brilliant views, while the shadows of Freshwater's iconic cliffs are prime picnicking spots. If you're more about romance, a wedding on a breathtaking apple orchard would be an exceptional way to start married life.

Literal perfection from land to sea

Do you sense a literary theme here? Tennyson Down is one of Freshwater's most beloved attractions. Named for poet Alfred Tennyson, the haunting chalk ridge provides exceptional sea views. The Tennyson Monument towers dramatically over the area. Equally humbling is the medieval All Saints' Church, whose highlights are a magnificent organ and a stone pulpit. Delve into history at the Ferguson Family Museum, which celebrates one of Ireland's most recognized pioneers. Striking Dimbola Lodge, meanwhile, is home to a museum that honors Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron.
