Great House and location to stay

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house if you are looking to stay in Yarmouth. Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens had a lovely holiday staying in this house. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable and clean. The house is in a quiet road and not far to walk to the centre of Yarmouth and the sea. The garden has use of table and chairs and we also were able to have use of the garage to store our bikes . The owner was very helpful and emailed promptly helping with any queries we had. This was the first time we have rented a house and I thank the owners for making it a good experience.

Activity and Interests


Glen Thorne is 15 minutes walk from Yarmouth’s family friendly Sandhard beach (which can also be accessed from the harbour itself by the harbour boat taxi). Sandhard beach is sandy, has safe swimming and has a dedicated barbeque area.

Surfing and the long sandy beaches of Compton and Brook are only 15 minutes drive away whilst the sandy bays of Colwell and Totland are within a 5 to 10 minute drive.


Yarmouth is directly served by the Wightlink ferry from Lymington in the New Forest, which itself is easily reached by train or car. (The train links easily with Southampton Airport). For short stays you can have a good time in Yarmouth without a car, using buses/taxis if required. But even though the car ferry costs are high, the IOW in general, and the West in Wight in particular is well worth exploring in a car if possible.


Glen Thorne is within a few minutes walk of the centre of Yarmouth where there are a variety of independent shops, restaurants and pubs. There is also the lifeboat, a castle, a pier and a post office.

Freshwater is approximately 4 miles away and has a small selection of shops including a supermarket and butcher.

Newport, the county capital, is approximately 9 miles away and here you will find the usual chain stores and supermarkets.

Further Details:

Glen Thorne is ideally located to allow you to explore the beautiful West Wight, which is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a wonderful walking area with footpaths very close to the house joining the coastal path after meandering beside the river towards Freshwater where there is a good pub for lunch. The river is a haven for a wide range of birds and dragonflies and in the woods along the river you may spot an elusive red squirrel.

All around the West Wight there are excellent restaurants, walks, cycle rides, golfing, crabbing spots and boat trips. Surfing and the long sandy beaches of Compton and Brook are only 15 minutes drive away whilst the sandy bays of Colwell and Totland are within a 5 to 10 minute drive. For those wishing to explore by bicycle, there are adult and children’s cycles available for hire 200 meters from the house.

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful island to visit with so much to see and do for adults and children alike many within only minutes of the house, and even its most distant attractions are no more than 30-45 minutes drive away. Visitor attractions range enormously from the stately Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle to the calm tranquillity of the Ventnor Botanical Gardens to the family fun at Blackgang Chine Adventure Park.
