    “Windy Ridge Cottage is the absolute ...”
    Windy Ridge Cottage is the absolute best cottage I have ever stayed in my life! Cottage is very clean, beautiful, modern, and more like a 5 star hotel. The location is the best in entire island. Speaking about the owners who lives next door, they are very nice people, very kind and helpful and support you anytime you just text them. We really had a 5 star experience and really enjoyed and of course 100% recommend to next holiday makers.

The property

Yarmouth 0.6 miles.

This delightful cottage is attached to the owner's home in a fantastic coastal location with views of the Solent to the front and from the marshes to the Tennyson monument at the rear, just outside the popular town of Yarmouth.

The cottage was built in 2016 and is an ideal base for friends and families, and with wider doorways on the ground floor it may also be suitable for those with limited mobility.

You enter into the open plan living area which is a very light and bright room with large patio doors to the rear garden.

There is a well-equipped, modern kitchen and dining space overlooking the Solent and some wonderfully comfortable sofas where you can relax.

Completing the ground floor is a king-size double bedroom which has views out to the marshes and a contemporary shower room.

Upstairs is a twin room with stunning views across to Lymington which offers the flexibility of being a super king-size double bedroom on request and a fabulous bathroom with a freestanding bath.

Outside, the outstanding south-facing rear garden provides an ideal setting for evening drinks while enjoying the views and wildlife with a patio with furniture to relax on.

This is a lovely secluded spot to watch the tides and enjoy the sea breeze.

Just a short walk from the cottage brings you into the heart of bustling Yarmouth which has a busy harbour and a variety of attractions.

Visit Yarmouth Castle, wander the pretty streets and enjoy the boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs.

You are also ideally situated to enjoy the railway track footpath which takes you into Freshwater and there is a bus stop to the front of the property if you fancy a faster journey.

There are a number of water based activities on offer such as fishing, sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking and of course there are a number of different walking trails nearby and cycle hire is an option.

Set just a ten minute walk from the ferry terminal, Windy Ridge Cottage is an ideal base on the Isle of Wight surrounded by stunning views.

About the location

YARMOUTH

Newport 12 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

The attractive seaside town of Yarmouth is the oldest town on the Isle of Wight, and its busy harbour is a haven for all kinds of watercraft, with the terminal used for regular mainland ferry crossings to Lymington. Yarmouth’s narrow streets are home to an attractive array of shops and inns, whilst a visit to Henry VIII’s castle is not to be missed. There's great cycling (and a cycle hire shop) and walking to be had along the coastal path, or why not take an energetic stroll across to the nearby Tennyson Down via the Red Lion Inn next to Freshwater's Norman Church of All Saints? Sandhard beach is 15 minutes' walk away, and is ideal for swimming and crabbing from the jetty. Yarmouth's historic water mill is another good spot for crabbing. Four miles away is Compton Bay, famous for dinosaur remains; head there at low tide and see if you can find the two enormous three-toed feet. West Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Yarmouth is an ideal base from which to explore this wonderful island.
