THE BAY is a small, family run boutique bed and breakfast located in a quiet road just a few minutes’ walk from Freshwater Bay in West Wight; an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Having had ties to the Island for several decades, in 2014 the owners found this beautiful Victorian property and decided to move full-time to Freshwater Bay. A loving and complete restoration took over two years, with a desire to be as eco-friendly as possible. Solar panels provide electricity, heating and hot water; lighting is provided by LEDs and sensors turn lights on and off as required. This, combined with retaining and restoring original Victorian period features, make a spectacular property fit for the 21st century and has led to THE BAY being certified as Gold standard GreenLeaders by Trip Advisor.
