Self catering holiday cottages at Kings Manor Farm, Freshwater, Isle of Wight
A choice of four spacious and comfortable self-catering holiday cottages in Freshwater, Isle of Wight. Kings Orchard, Estuary Cottage and The Old Farm Shop are located within the rural grounds of Kings Manor Farm and Kings Hill is a 5 minute drive away. We also have a sister company at Kings Manor Farm called Glamping The WIght Way that offers four hand crafted luxury safari lodges.
Kings Manor Farm is situated directly on the beautiful Yar Estuary, between Yarmouth and Freshwater in West Wight. The family owners have preserved the estuary in its natural state for 40 years, treating the tidal area as a wildlife sanctuary and planting trees to encourage red squirrels. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of this stunning location while being only a few minutes’ drive from the bustle of Yarmouth, glorious beaches and numerous holiday activities. We can help with advice and bookings.
We are the only holiday location offering direct access to the River Yar. Sailing, canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing and general 'messing about in boats' is a must on the estuary, which also offers stunning bird watching and peaceful enjoyment. The Yar estuary is one of the most picturesque and safest places to paddleboard on the South Coast and is perfect for beginners as well as seasoned boarders. We can arrange paddleboards and/or a Kayak for suitably qualified guests
Extensive walking, bicycling and horse-riding opportunities are also at your fingertips, as the main Yar Estuary circular footpath runs through the property and connects with tracks that lead to the downs and the renowned Isle of Wight footpath/bridleway network. Maps are provided but we are also happy to make suggestions.
We can provide stabling or turn out for your own horses and ponies. We can provide hay and straw from the farm and arrange delivery of other foodstuffs. Mooring or boat storage can also be arranged and we can help with tidal guidance. Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Kings Orchard, Estuary Cottage and The Old Farm Shop.
KIngs Orchard and The Old Farm Shop have their own private Hot Tubs and Estuary Cottage can arrange use of the Swimming Pool. (Childrens swimming aids can be provided).
All four houses have acess to the astroturf tennis court and we can provide both tennis raquets and balls.
The family live on site and the properties are personally managed by them. They are always on hand for local advice or help, be it restuarant bookings, babysitters, beach access or any other information.
We offer all of our customers discounted ferry crossings.
