  • "Lovely location right on the beach, perfect for us as we had our dog with us."

    Lots of dog friendly places in Yarmouth which is a short walk away. The accommodation is basic but comfortable.

  • "Good location, though the adjacent cafe 'closed for the winter' on Dec 11th as were the various attractions at Fort Victoria."

    The Sykes listing should reflect these seasonal limitations. The appartment was comfortable and ideal for a couple with a dog, though our experience was let down by the inferior quality of the kitchen appliances and utensils, some of which need urgent replacement. The TV was too small for the room and had a faulty remote. Surprised and disappointed that no towels were provided.

  • "Excellent location on the beach with ever-changing sea views across the Solent towards Lymington."

    It is only a short walk to Yarmouth, with its cafes, pubs, and shops, and is on the Coastal Path with easy access to other pleasant inland walks. Very quiet at night - after the removal of the battery from the wall clock - with the restful sound of the waves and the irregular chiming of Sconce Point buoy bell just about audible through the double glazing. Would happily return.

  • "Great location."

    I was on my own but if there had been 2 people there wouldn't have been enough cutlery. TV could do with being a bit bigger and the remote didn't work very well either. Only small things but the location would make me book this property again without hesitation.

  • "Well appointed apartment very close to the sea so a wonderful view out."

    The little area with a cafe has great potential but an atmosphere of incomplete restoration. The front terrace could be made more private with little expense and that would make the use of the front area more enjoyable.

  • "We have stayed in this property several times."

    Nice peaceful seafront location with a cafe next door

  • "The location is wonderful, perhaps the absence of some amenities might be ignored."

    The TV is too small for normal viewing and such things as a DVD player, board games, CD player and patio chairs are usually available in most lettings. It is still a great place to stay!

  • "Very good property, we had holidays here before so knew what to expect."

    Location is perfect for fishing and general relaxing. Good area to explore and Yarmouth seems to have most of what is needed. Will be better when fully open, a lot of business's hadn't opened because of Covid, which meant The Bugle pub and restaurant was very busy, Wednesday night at 8pm as I was leaving new diners were being quoted 90 minutes wait time. The island in general seems slow to reopen for business.

  • "As this was a winter let we were surprised that the accommodation was cold on our arrival."

    However, an additional heater was quickly found. The bathroom was unheated, and we suggest that a heated towel rail would have made all the difference. The mattress was very uncomfortable, that and the pillows need replacing. The accommodation looked very tired, two light fittings not working, and cobwebs on light fittings The television was too small for the room, difficult to read text and not enough volume.. On the positive side there was plenty of hot water.

  • "Wonderful location right on the beach."

    We loved waking up to the sound and sight of the sea. The studio is clean, light, airy and very cosy. A few minor niggles: there is no heat in the bathroom so you need to leave the living room door open to warm it up. There are no cooking spatulas and the shower is very weak.

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.
