Where we are

Nestled in Totland Bay, nr Freshwater, West Wight is Romany, a delightful three bedroom cottage, built in 1903, totally refurbished in 2010 and maintained to a high standard to give you a comfortable stay.

"We have had a lovely relaxing stay. The cottage is so cosy and the beds are so comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting in the gorgeous garden too."

Located ¼ mile away from Romany are two Blue Flag beaches - Colwell Bay, renowned for its lovely golden sandy beaches and Totland Bay, with its amazing views of The Needles. Freshwater Bay is beautiful and famous for its dramatic coastline. From any of these beaches it is an excellent place to start the famous ‘Round the Island’ coastal path walk.

Freshwater Village is the shopping centre for West Wight, ¼ mile from Romany, with a good range of grocery and specialist shops, as well as a sports centre, indoor swimming pool and library. It is also the place to start a lovely river walk along the River Yar which meets the sea at Yarmouth, the quaint village, which has the Isle of Wight’s largest harbour and hosts the Wightlink ferry terminal for ferries from Lymington.
