We recently stayed at Tuppence Cottage. The house is a relative new build located on the main road between Newport and Yarmouth. Yes it's on a main road but I found this not to be an issue in terms of noise or disturbance. The house is located on section where the road is controlled by traffic lights due to the carriageway width. I didn't find this to be a problem. If more than 2 cars there maybe a struggle to park. 2 minor issues; it appeared the black bin had not been emptied in a while. No evidence in the property advising collection day or local council recycling requirements as a green bin is provided. Quick Google search on the good and fast WiFi we figured it out. Also no scart lead from DVD player to the TV. Given the sky box had free view channels only we utilised this lead. Local pub maybe 100m away, I recommend booking a table and having a meal. Would recommend as a good base for the western half of isle of Wight.

About the location
Yarmouth 4 miles; Newport 5.9 miles; Freshwater 6.3 miles; Cowes 9.3 miles.
The picturesque, ancient village of Shalfleet has many doomsday mentions from the three impressive manors within its area and the old water mill that produced bread until 1920s. The nearby medieval town of Newtown, which became a ‘Free Town’ in 1256, was chosen for its deep and sheltered harbour, salt beds and its productive shellfish beds. Today Newtown is the only National Nature Reserve on the island, fantastic for historians, walkers, wildlife enthusiasts, or just to soak up this most beautiful tranquil environment. From Shalfleet Manor you can take an estuary safari all through to the Newtown estuary, experiencing the abundance of birds, plants and other wildlife. Shalfleet also boasts an award-winning gastro pub, farm shop, and village stores, that are opened daily for papers and groceries and there is also an off-licence. A wonderful holiday location.
