The property

Yarmouth 1.2 miles.

Tucked away in Norton near Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, is this charming one-bedroom holiday home, Salt Box 2.

Enjoying a fantastic location with easy access to the coast and the local amenities, Salt Box 2 is a delightful dwelling for a couple seeking their next coastal retreat.

Step into the open-plan living space, where you can impress your loved one with tasty meals, whipped up in the well-equipped kitchen and ready to enjoy at the dining table for two over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

On warmer days, why not dine alfresco out on the rear south-facing decking where you can soak up the last of the day’s rays?

After dinner, snuggle up on the plush seating in the sitting room and select your favourite show from the TV.

Continue through to the bathroom where you can indulge in a leisurely soak in the bath or rinse off in the overhead shower, as your towel stays warm thanks to the heated towel rail.

When sleep calls, retire to the sumptuous double bed to catch your rest ahead of another adventure-filled day.

Explore your local surroundings, where you will find the popular Boathouse, serving traditional pub fayre whilst enjoying views over the River Yar and a prime spot for watching the Island Boat Racing.

After enjoying the delights of the Boathouse, take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Fort Victoria Country Park, where you can visit the local marine life at the seasonal aquarium, a planetarium and a wonderful model railway.

For a wider selection of amenities, head over to Yarmouth, where you can visit the remarkable, restored 16th-centuy Yarmouth Castle, where you can delve into history at the exhibition on local shipwrecks, wander the idyllic harbour, hook your catch of the day along Yarmouth Pier or sample fresh seafood at The Blue Crab or Salty’s.

There is also cycle hire nearby for those wanting to enjoy leisurely rides along Thorley Brook and along the coast or spot the local wildlife at the Rofford Marsh.

Continue on to Newport, where you will find the attractions of the Museum of Island History, the 1,700-year-old Newport Roman Villa, Newport Golf Club and the Shide Chalk Pit Nature Reserve.

Further afield, you will find Ryde, where you can enjoy a fun-filled day at the beach, touring the Isle of Wight Bus and Coach Museum or picnicking in Appley Park.

For long-lasting memories, secure your stay at Salt Box 2.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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. Why not take an energetic stroll at the nearby Tennyson Down and Headon Warren. Sandhard beach is 15 minutes' walk away, with Colwell Bay with its sandy beach and amenities for the family 7 minutes away by car. Yarmouth's pier and sailing club jetty 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.
