The Orchards is a lovely little B&B, only a few minutes walk from both Totland Bay and Colwell Bay. It's ideally placed for walking in West Wight, and right on the bus route if you decide not to take the car. It's spotlessly clean, and Paula is a lovely host. It immediately felt like home, and I'm certain I'll be... More

The Home is made very special by cleanliness and down to earth Paula who made our stay very welcome and comfortable. Paula has thought of everything and it made our stay that much more special. The overwhelming feeling when you walk in is welcome !

Lovely host, immaculate rooms, we would stay again. We stayed for two nights as part of the Isle of Wight coastal walk, and this was the nicest place that we stayed by far. The location is good for both Yarmouth and Freshwater.

Another lovely visit to the island and stay at the Orchards, and with a lovely week’s weather thrown in! As per our previous stays, everything was again just perfect, with Paula as friendly, helpful and welcoming as always. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the breakfasts fabulous as usual, with the usual addition of home made jams. We’re already looking... More

The B&B is located in a convenient location, near the centre of freshwater town. I travelled by foot to Lymington then took the ferry to Yarmouth. From there it's a straight and quick bus ride down to Freshwater and a 3 minute walk to the B&B. The town is near Colwell Bay and Freshwater Bay, all within walking distance. It... More
