Right in the heart of the Isle of Wight, hemmed in by it's high Downs and half hidden by woods lies the picturesque village of Gatcombe.  The road into Gatcombe on route to Freewaters, seems almost like a private drive, on your left at the top of a rise is an ancient church.  It is a mellow and quaint building set among tall trees.  It is a real village church, founded in the 13th century & both the interior and the exterior exude an air of tranquillity. Once past the church you proceed into the village, past stone cottages and quite a fair amount of thatch on a lane, which leads to one of the most secluded and unspoilt parts of the island.  Nestled near to the end of the lane 'a dead end', well for motorists anyway lies Freewaters our recently renovated dairy farm. Centrally positioned on the island it is ideally placed for visiting the island in general. Wish to find more about Isle of Wight and the picturesque village of Gatcombe you can have a look at Island Eye. 

Freewaters is ideally situated for walkers, bikers and cyclists with numerous footpaths and bridleways radiating from the village; to Carisbrooke Castle in one direction, Bowcombe and Brighstone Forest in another and finally up onto Newbarn Down, ' a climb of almost 600ft ', but well worth the effort on account of the spectacular views which are hard to better. 

The central location of the property makes Freewaters the ideal stepping stone for exploring the wealth of attractions to be found on this idyllic island.
