Cliffway's peaceful location is ideal for a romantic stay, families, children, the retired and those who are less able, perfect for a three generation holiday experience. The property has 2 bedrooms (sleeps 5), and an open plan kitchen/living space. Cliffway is located 10 mins from Yarmouth ferry and 4/5 mins walk from the beach and The Waterfront Restaurant and Bar. A splendid restaurant called The Hut is a short coastal walk away at Colwell Bay. Local shops & coastal walks are all within walking distance. Cliffway has a large sunny garden throughout the day (with trees for shade) which provides a great place to relax for all the family. Totland Bay is one of 106 beaches in the British Isles to have won a 2018 Quality Coast Award. It also forms a part of the Needles Marine Protected Area. The Headon Warren Walk which starts on the Turf Walk was highlighted by the National Trust as one of the UK's 'Walks with a 'WOW Factor'. THE PROPERTY 'Cliffway' is a single storey property, refurbished in 2016 to provide an open plan living with new lighting and timber flooring throughout. The living room has two double glazed doors that open 180 degrees and fasten, almost flat, against the outside wall to give easy access to the garden. The garden is enclosed by a white timber picket fence at the front and a combination of trees/hedge/fence & gates. Parking is at the rear or in a lay-by opposite to the property. The property has a new shower room with a low profile shower, walled fixed shower seat, wash basin and toilet. Heating and hot water are provided by a new combi boiler. There are two bedrooms, one with a king size and single bed, the other room has two single beds. The covered walkway can be used to provide a safe place to store bikes, surf boards etc and is a dry, sunny area to hang washing. The glazed front porch provides space to hang coats and to store wet shoes etc. ‘Cliffways’ unique character lies in its quiet peaceful location, large attractive garden, great beach access and lovely sea views which are ideal for all the family. This is now combined with a modern renovation to give the comforts of home in all seasons. ‘Cliffway’ enables you to relax and sunbath in the garden, to sit and gaze at the sea watching the boats pass by or to enjoy a romantic supper sitting in the garden as you watch one of Totland's renowned spectacular sunsets. In bad weather you can still gaze out from the warmth and comfort of the living room and enjoy watching the sky change and the white horses on the sea whilst keeping a watchful eye for the boats passing by. Great beach access makes it easy for all the family to enjoy a day on the beach swimming, exploring rock pools, making sandcastles, collecting shells or to try your hand at crabbing, etc before strolling back to ‘Cliffway’ buckets and nets in hand for tea in the garden. It’s lovely to enjoy an early morning or evening relaxing stroll along the seafront and so very easy to go for a swim. 'Cliffway' really offers the opportunity to 'dump' the car and relax. The recent renovation and full length double glazed living room doors means that it is now possible to sit inside and just enjoy gazing out to sea watching the wind, the waves, the ever changing sky and the turbulent seas and dramatic evening sunsets all from the warmth and comfort of your living room.

Only a 10 minute drive from the ferry port at Yarmouth. A 5 minute drive to The Needles. A peaceful place to stay with space to park off road. The bungalow was well equipped and clean and spacious too. The garden was great for the children to play and it was lovely to sit outside at the picnic table to eat. We would certainly return if we visited the Island again.

About the neighbourhood
Totland has a wide sweeping Bay. The beach is sandy and relatively shallow for a good distance and ideal for younger children. The western end of the bay has plenty of rock pools to explore at low tide. The beach can be accessed by car. Totland has something to offer whatever the season. It is popular with the fisherman who often camp out over night at the far end of the bay and with local water sport enthusiasts who also use nearby Freshwater and Compton Bays. You can watch the Round the Island Race (Sat 29 June) from Totland, and Cliffway and in summer passing boats often moor their boats in the bay for lunch at the Waterfront Restaurant. For the dinosaur enthusiast the IOW dinosaur fossils were discovered on the coast at Compton Bay.
Getting around
'Cliffway' provides an ideal base from which to explore West Wight and enjoy some of the UK's most spectacular and dramatic coastline. This can be enjoyed by foot, with a pram, with a wheelchair, by bus and as a cyclist. The rest of the Island is accessible by car or bus. Please see more details in the destination section below.
