Beautiful cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have spent time at Hardtack Cottage in Yarmouth. It is beautifully fitted out with everything you need and all of the highest quality. The location is ideal for all the great pubs and restaurants in Yarmouth and all within 1-2 minutes walk of the property. You couldn't wish for a better place to stay and we will certainly be back again soon. Many thanks to Frances for allowing us to share her lovely cottage.

Absolutely wonderful. Would recommend everytime!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is fantastic and the host could not be more charming or helpful. The cottage is immaculately clean and has everything you could possibly need all thoughtfully laid out. Yarmouth is a beautiful town and we could have eaten at a different restaurant/pub/tapas every night for a week. For a small town it packs a punch. Thank you very much for having us. It would be a pleasure to return.

Beautiful home and lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Yarmouth is a great holiday destination and the cottage is located right in the heart of everything. It was a home from home - everything you could think of was there. It was around a 5min walk (if that) to the bus stop and ferry. There were reviews on the local restaurants and things to do, which were really useful. The corner shop is about a 1 min walk. We tried On the Rocks and Blue Crab for dinner, which were both amazing. We all wished we had longer. We will definitely be back and next time spend a full week here.

Beautiful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything that you will need for your stay. Location is very central in Yarmouth so ideal for all the lovely restaurants, pubs and shops nearby. Within 2 minutes walking distance of the ferry link and only 5 minutes walk to the main car park, it is in a very quiet location and has a lovely sunny patio at the back, ideal for catching the afternoon sun. I can't recommend this cottage enough and would certainly stay there again.

Stunning property, quiet yet central location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful weeks holiday in this stunning cottage tucked away but near all the amenities of Yarmouth.

The owners have thought of just about everything you might need.

We hope to be back very soon. My husband had never been to the IOW but now wants to retire there!
