We had a lovely one night stay at the The Bay. The rooms were very nicely furnished and decorated. It is within easy walking distance to the local beach (good for children who love the beach as much as mine do). The beds were comfortable and the shower nice and powerful. We had a delicious, filling breakfast, complete with homemade yoghurt which I'd never tried before (I can recommend).

Attending a friend's wedding, we needed a stay of a couple of nights in the area. Paul and Adam provided us with a convenient base in a spotless room and made us feel at home immediately.
Our room (3) was a tad small but beautifully decorated and presented. The en-
We slept well throughout our two nights, and the breakfasts, freshly cooked, were up to the general excellent standards. Paul tries hard to meet individual requirements.
There are two off-
The Bay is a friendly establishment providing good value for money in a quiet location. We thoroughly recommend it.

A warm welcome and stay, would return
“Paul and Adam are great hosts, offering a warm welcome and relaxed stay.
The rooms are comfortable, well equipped, perfect for a short stay. Breakfast met needs perfectly. Food was fresh, and well cooked. Money certainly not saved on cheaper lower end, lower quality brands.
A few small things stop me marking The Bay as excellent, though wouldn't stop me returning. Larger towels would be good and newspapers to read in the morning.
The Bay is definitely good value for money in a good quiet location, with the perfect hosts.”
Anthony. June 2017
Stayed 2 unplanned nights following a tent emergency! Paul was a great host & really made us feel welcome. The room & whole house was top quality, with excellent refurbishment work done, the shower was superb. Would definitely go back.
Andrew. June 2017
Superfragalistic Boutique B&B -
“Really great 4 night stay in The Bay, easy access with bus routes and links to all of the IOW, located in West IOW. The Bay area is a bit more remote, lovely off the beaten track area of IOW right next to Tennyson Down and Freshwater Bay. Walks were fabulous. Paul is a top host, even preparing a picnic breakfast for me to take with me for an early morning fishing trip. Delicious full English Breakfast cooked by Paul himself, with great coffee. The room was very comfy and modern and bathroom also beautiful and modern. Highly recommended. Lots of restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the B&B.”
Siobhan. May 2017
Modern, stylish, friendly, comfy
“Stayed here for 2 nights in march with my husband and toddler, along with some friends. We had a lovely time. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and fresh. The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable, and the breakfast was amazing. Only 10 minutes from the ferry terminal and on a lovely quiet street. Would totally recommend for families, couples, and friends.”
Kirsty, March 2017
Brilliant boutique B&B!
“We loved our stay at The Bay. Paul & Adam have done an exceptional job renovating this lovely Victorian townhouse. The rooms are beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. They have retained the charm of the old house while giving the rooms a modern and contemporary feel. Our room was lovely and spacious and easily accommodated my wife and I and our son. Breakfast was wonderful, and the location is perfect, in a quiet street just a short walk from the beach at Freshwater Bay and a stones throw from the beautiful Tennyson Down and coastal cliff path, with spectacular views across the island. You couldn't want for more from a small friendly B&B in a stunning location. We will definitely return!”

A breath of fresh air!
A breath of fresh air! I stayed for one night, whilst visiting family on the island. I think what attracted me to The Bay was that it had been tastefully decorated in a modern, and stylish way. The rooms and bathroom were cosy, very clean, and comfortable. Paul made a lovely host -
Emma. January 2017
“Really enjoyed my stay at The Bay Bed and Breakfast! Loved the cleanliness of the rooms, and how thoughtfully arranged the amenities were. Tea and coffee were replenished every morning, and the smart TV was a very nice touch. Breakfast was served to a very high standard, and Paul was fantastically knowledgeable about the island -
Rik, September 2016
Felt like home
“It was my best experience of staying in the Hotel/B&B in the UK. Paul and his partner renovated the house and all rooms and facilities looks just splendid.
I had a room with a double king bed, which was made from two twins and it was huge and super comfortable bed! The pillows, duvet, linen -
Bathroom is so stylish and new. Everything is shiny and works perfectly.
The breakfast was tasty and really fresh and you have a really good choice of cereals, classic English breakfast and so on.
The last, but not the least thing that made my stay great -
I'll definitely go back to this wonderful B&B. But next time I'll bring my husband, so we can both can experience this wonderful stay.
Also, the B&B is in a very good spot for the transport. There's several bus stops around, that can take you to Yarmouth, Needles or Newport etc.”
Olga, September 2016
“What a superb B&B. Fabulously stylish and very comfortable. The owners attention to detail is second to none and the service truly exceptional, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Takingtime to chat to all guests and assist with all needs. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and nothing to much trouble. We were made to feel very welcome by Adam and Paul who are clearly very passionate about what they do. Exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon.”
Kim. August 2016
Good place to stay!
“Modern rooms in a charming old house with a helpful host. We had a comfortable separate bathroom, very nice mattresses on our beds. Paul is very willing to help you to have a good stay. We stayed one night while walking the coastal path; perfect”
Gert. August 2016
A lovely place to stay
“A newly renovated property which was clean and comfortable. The hosts, Paul and Adam, were friendly and helpful, recommending places to visit and places to eat. The breakfasts were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The location is great for people who arrive at the Yarmouth ferry port particularly as it is only about a 10 minute drive and the area around Freshwater is pretty and unspoiled. My daughters and I really enjoyed our stay.”
Sheila. August 2016
Week long stay was brilliant
“Myself,husband and 3 children stayed in two rooms for the week. The place was just amazing! So clean, beautifully decorated with great bathrooms. The location was just up the road from freshwater bay where we spent a couple of days on the beach. On Saturdays a pizza van goes to the beach and bakes fresh pizzas which I would highly recommend. But best of all about our stay were the hosts! They could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The breakfasts were perfect and homemade yogurt should be sampled! Thanks for such a lovely stay Paul and Adam x”
Caroline. August 2016
The fabulous Bay B&B
“We really couldn't have asked for more. Wonderful hospitality, exceptionally clean house, brand new fixtures and fittings, well decorated and generally, just a lovely environment to be in. Not far from Colwell and Totland Bays, so location is good as well. Would recommend without hesitation.”
The Perfect Place to stay
“Beautifully renovated with wonderful taste. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds with
quality bed linen. Perfectly cooked and served breakfast in a bright and cheerful room.
What a gem, everything you need in a perfect B & B. Wonderful friendly and helpful hosts. Freshwater Bay is a lovely place to stay with good links with the rest of the Island.
There were 4 adults in our party and we would all recommend The Bay for a perfect stay.
Well done Paul and Adam and not forgetting little Ronnie.
Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 3 have en-
