Perfect holiday - even when it rained!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a half-term holiday that would suit 3 generations of one family. From the 3 year old to the 62 year old the house provided everything we had hoped for and more. The Wendy house was a particular favourite with our grand daughter and the Hot Tub was a favourite with all of us. Nigel, the owner, looked after us well and we appreciated all the local information we found in the house, as well as the arrival gifts which were very welcome indeed. We are already talking about when we would like to go again!

Special interest holidays:

Both properties provide incredible natural haven for bird watching.

There is even an Airstream to stay in!


Based right on the water, direct access to the sand dune beach by boat, 400m walk to the closest beach, 200m to the town. Golf 2 mile walk along the old railway track 20 min, or 3 mile drive. Stunning views and bird watching. Sailing right outside! Basically the best location on the IOW!


Wightlink Ferries to Lymington, Fishbourne. Red Funnel ferries to Cowes.


The quaint and beautiful destination harbour town of Yarmouth is just 200m flat walk away. The town has extensive facilities for due to the all year yachting.

Loads of pubs and great places to eat. Lots of beaches nearby to walk or drive. Great fishing and bird watching haven. 15 mins from Cowes.

Further Details:

Breathtaking surrounding views from sunrise to sunset, over one of the loveliest wildlife sanctuaries. Yacht moorings just offshore from the Boat House at River Cottage, Yarmouth harbour (inc Wightlink Ferry terminal)/town center/extra car parking/Island wide bus terminal/public telephone all within 250 meters.

Yarmouth is very well set-up. Small quiet town with 10 places to eat, food shopping, and general shops. located on the western side of the Island and the town has grown up as a result of its natural harbour, which is guarded by Yarmouth Castle, a fortification built to protect the Solent from invading forces by Henry VIII in 1547. The Harbour attracts many yachts and motor cruisers which take advantage of the estuary afforded by the River Yar.

This is a bustling town which has an active community all year round. Wightlink Ferries dock here from Lymington, the crossing taking just half an hour. It is the boats and yachts, however, which attract much of the business and custom. The square has a varied range of shops and delightful eating establishments and if you have not been to Yarmouth before, but feel it looks familiar, it is because much of the TV series “Rocket to the Moon” was filmed here. From Yarmouth you can pick up a boat which will take you fishing in the Solent or perhaps off the Needles. There are also walks along the promenade and the former railway track, called “The Causeway”, which provides a delightful walk through trees and along the banks of the Yar. This will take you towards Freshwater and while you are walking you might see one of the Islands red squirrels, a fox or many species of birds.

The Pier at Yarmouth is also a great place to go fishing. Trips leave from there for various destinations, and in the later summer months, the Waverley, an old paddle steamer, collects people for a round trip of the Island. If you think the Island is beautiful now, wait until you’ve seen it from the sea.
