The only 4 star Self catering Cottage in the Falklands. Coast Ridge Cottage is a family run cottage situated in the tiny settlement of Fox Bay East. Whilst guests can come self catering, most choose to stay full board. The house is surrounded by private gardens and looks out over the sea linking the settlements of Fox Bay East and Fox Bay West. The Cottage is modern, warm and well equipped. It has private sheltered gardens including a kids area with trampoline, Wendy house and sandpit. The mature trees surrounding the garden offer a welcome retreat from the winds common in the Falklands. The cottage business is an extension of the farming activities of farmers Nuala and Keith Knight, the owners of Coast Ridge Farm, a 12,500 acre farm with 3,800 sheep and 120 head of cattle.

The farm is also home to colonies of Gentoo, Rockhopper and Magellanic penguins as well as a myriad of waterfowl which love the many fresh water ponds on the farm. Guests staying at the cottage have full access to the farm. The friendly settlement has a small pub and village hall, a convenience store, a fuel station and a small post office museum. More

As West Falkland isn't a tourist destination for the masses, accommodation is sparse and there really isn't a lot of choice. Coast Ridge Cottage is, however, a gem. Nestled in Fox Bay East, it has a great view over the bay, is spotlessly clean and...More

About the neighbourhood
Fox Bay rests on a small promontory on the east coast of West Falkland. The Bay stretches out to the Falkland Sound on one side and form lots of small creeks and inlets on the other. Despite having a population of only 22, Fox Bay is one of the largest settlements on West Falkland and acts as a central hub with local amenities including a store, a fuel station and a small pub/ village hall open on the weekend. Guests staying at Coast Ridge Cottage have exclusive access to Coast Ridge Farm, a 12,500 acre farm hosting 3,800 sheep and 120 head of cattle. Owners of the cottage are also farmers and offer tours of the farm including the family's favourite spots and fantastic wildlife as well as tours of the settlement and surrounds
Getting around
Fox Bay is a central location for exploring more of West Falkland. For those guests arriving by plane, we can provide airport transfers, tours of the local area, tours of the farm and tours of the local area. Carcass Bay is a long white sandy beach on Coast Ridge Farm and is home to colonies of Gentoo, Magellanic penguins and the largest colony of Rockhoppers on West Falkland. Guests have exclusive access to this private beach and can choose to take a tour with us, or self drive in convoy with us. Coast Ridge Farm is not connected to the road network and all tours therefore offer terrific 4 wheel drive off-road experiences.
