The town of Freshwater on the Isle of White sits on the western edge of the island and is split into two distinctive areas: the town proper and Freshwater Bay. The Isle of White is a favourite with families living in the South of England, since it has excellent train connections via the London Waterloo to Portsmouth train line and it takes just 15 minutes to hop across on the ferry. The island itself offers clean, fairly cheap accommodation and families with small children are always made to feel welcome.
The quaint and charmingly old-fashioned Victorian style of all Isle of White towns draws visitors all year round and Freshwater is just as busy in winter as in summer and, just like its larger neighbour Yarmouth, it has plenty of cafes, quirky shops, restaurants and attractions to offer. With its white cliffs towering over the coastline, its undulating down land and lovely beaches at Freshwater Bay, the town is an all-round winner as far as holidaymakers are concerned who are looking for a tranquil time and value for money break.
Favoured by Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert, the Isle of White was all the rage in the 19th century. Among its many famous visitors Freshwater can boast the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, who stayed at the Farringford Hotel, which overlooks the Bay and the English Channel. A lovely walk runs along the coast from Freshwater to the Needles, one of Britain’s most famous natural landmarks. Its lighthouse and razor-sharp spires of chalk, shaped that way by the enormous waves that roll in and break at the shore, have been the subject of many aspiring photographer.
Looking after coastal paths or the A-road that circumvents the entire island is the responsibility of the local authority. If you have an accident and are injured in a fall or because road signs were giving incorrect instructions, you can claim compensation for your injuries, provided your accident happened within the last 3 years. You can make a claim with a specialist solicitor, but it may not be that easy finding a no win, no fee accident solicitor in Freshwater.
