This delightful cottage is situated a short stroll from the centre of the historic and picturesque harbour town of Yarmouth. The cottage provides accommodation for couples and small families alike. The enclosed courtyard garden with gated side access is ideal for cycle storage.
Yarmouth is located on the western side of the Island with a natural harbour guarded by Yarmouth Castle, a fortification built to protect the Solent from invading forces by Henry VIII. The Harbour attracts many yachts and motor cruisers which take advantage of the estuary afforded by the River Yar.
The Lymington to Yarmouth car and passenger ferry docks in the harbour, making holidaying with or without a car easy, as only a short stroll from the cottage.
This bustling town has an active community all year round. The square has a varied range of shops and delightful eating establishments. The 700ft long Victorian pier is a great place to go fishing and boat trips can be taken from here to various destinations.
There are walks along the promenade and the former railway track, called "The Causeway", which provides a delightful walk along the banks of the Yar towards Freshwater, with local wildlife in abundance and many species of birds. This is also a cycle track with many miles linking other tracks across the Island.
Places of interest and of outstanding natural beauty include The Needles, Alum Bay with its coloured sands, chair lift and Pleasure Park, Tennyson Down and miles of outstanding coastal scenery from nearby Freshwater Bay.
