  • "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.

  • "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.

A great Yarmouth self-catering base looking out to an ever-changing seascape.

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. 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.
