Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Freshwater Bay.
Standing on the River Yar, Freshwater's sandy beaches have made it one of the Isle of Wight's most popular destinations for seaside-seekers. Nearby is Tennyson Down where the poet Tennyson sat for hours each day gazing out to sea for inspiration. A stone cross in his memory stands at the summit.
Tennyson lived at Farringford House from 1853 to 1869 and was given the title Baron Tennyson of Aldworth and Freshwater. The highly-regarded photographer Julia Margaret Cameron also settled here in 1860, making a studio in a chicken coop and a darkroom in her coal bin. She did not take up her 'hobby' until she was given a camera at the age of 48 but still went on to achieve fame with portraits of celebrities such as Tennyson and Darwin. Her home, Dimbola Lodge, is run by a trust and preserves much of her work.
