  • "Great, roomy property for a family holiday (10 of us aged 1 to 71) with fabulous views."

    Ideally situated for a walk into Yarmouth for shops, cafes, restaurants etc.

  • "The location and views are stunning."

    The property is very well equipped and spacious. Beds really comfortable and bedrooms are huge. We had a fantastic week. A few comments on the negative side, the cleanliness wasn’t as expected, there were cobwebs all over and the fridge hadn’t been cleaned(mouldy cheese still in there). The outdoor furniture is quite rusty so could do with replacing. Whilst we were there the dishwasher broke down (which of course can happen to anybody) However, two messages were left on the owner’s mobile and a text message but we received no response, also left a message for the plumber detailed in the house information and again no response.

  • "This is a fantastic home."

    It is spacious with a view from the upstairs sitting room to die for. The rooms are huge and the beds are so comfortable. I can thoroughly recommend this property and Rebecca who was very helpful. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home and for organising a wall to wall week of sunshine !!

  • "The house has wonderful views of the sea and it is only a few strides to the shoreline."

    We got some great pictures of the sunsets during our stay. It is a short walk into town and there are some lovely walks which you can do from the house. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. The house is only a short distance from the ferry terminal and very easy to find. We enjoyed our stay.

  • "The house met all our expectations."

    We were a family of 10 and were all left satisfied. House very clean and well maintained. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen well stocked.

  • "We had a fantastic break."

    As a family we were celebrating a special occasion so were prepared to push the boat out a bit. The house in Yarmouth was perfect. It is right on the coast so the view was amazing. The house was very well prepared both in terms of the facilities but also the cleanliness and the decor. It has clearly had quite a bit of money spent on the upgrade in the last couple of years. We all had a great time, spending days out and about on the island but always looking forward to coming back to the house. Would certainly go again!

  • "This is a comfortable, well equipped and maintained cottage in an excellent location for walking, restaurants, and as a centre to explore the Isle of Wight."

    Someone is at hand to help with queries, and the owner is very helpful. There is everything you need - just add family and friends.

  • "St David's is a well appointed holiday home in a great location on the outskirts of Yarmouth, a 10 minute walk into the centre of town."

  • "Had a fantastic early September break at St Davids."

    Our party consisted of eight, age range 2 - 92. Location is pretty near perfect as a base for a short walk into Yarmouth or discovering the many delights that West Wight has to offer. The accommodation is homely but without being too fussy and the view from the sitting room is one to behold. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly and would look forward to booking again if/when we have another family break on the Island.

  • "Beautiful house, great location."

    We all enjoyed watching the boats from the lounge window. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to family and friends. We walked into Yarmouth which only takes about 5 minutes andhas a number of good restaurants, which welcome families with small children

  • "Great well equipped cottage in excellent location."

    Parking for our four cars and only 10 minutes walk from central Yarmouth. Great sea views from upstairs lounge. All family really enjoyed our break and would highly recommend

  • "The house was ideally placed to view the Solent and the sea views from the lounge were enticing."

    The bedrooms were spacious and there was plenty of room to relax and also, get together as a family. Our party consisted of 8, including an 8 month old baby and his great grandmother of 86. St David's is ideally situated with a lovely walk along the sea front to Yarmouth (some really good restaurants and sunsets) and the bus goes right outside the door. I can highly recommend the walk to the station restaurant for breakfast, called 'Off the rails'. We all enjoyed the amazing food and view of the river and nature reserve. The house is located within easy driving distance of many tourist sites and our children, (aged over 25), really enjoyed the Needles and the Llama walk. This holiday was full of surprises and we would highly recommend St David's as a base for your holiday experience.

  • "Our party of 11, ranging in age from 20 months to 62 years, had a sensational time at St Davids."

    We were very impressed when we arrived at how the house had been presented. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very well appointed and the beds extremely comfortable. We could lose various members of our family amongst the many rooms. The lounge and conservatory became playrooms, but once the young ones were asleep were very quickly social areas for chatting and more games. The lounge is ideal and the view spectacular. The kitchen dining and laundry areas were ideal for the size of our party. We took advantage of the garden for a barbeque, swingball, a paddling pool and many balls games. We have even left a red frisbee in one of the trees!! We felt St Davids was ideally positioned both for walking into the lovely town of Yarmouth along the coastal or railway paths and for travelling further afield. We went fossil hunting at Compton Bay, Crabbing at The Duver and visits to Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill Country Park and Tapnell Farmpark were also enjoyed. We hope very much to return one day.

    We were a party of 5 so lots of room for us. The house is lovely and warm even in the snow.

  • "The location of this house is just fantastic."

    It's ideally situated for exploring the west of the island and there are lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby. The house itself exceeded expectations with its well fitted kitchen, very comfortable extra large beds, and everything was exceptionally clean. The bathrooms and shower rooms were very modern and the smart TVs and high speed WIFI were ideal for the younger members of the family. I would highly recommend this property for anyone's holiday on the Isle of Wight.

  • "Extremely clean house."

    Excellent quality furnishings. Easy walk to Yarmouth and location overlooking the sea was fabulous - worth being aware of the road between the house and the sea which at times can be busy.

    An easy and picturesque walk to Yarmouth. The house was furnished to a very high standard, was immaculate and spotlessly clean and had stunning views from the lounge. We had a very relaxed holiday.

The property

This superb detached coastal family home with a New England style interior, is situated on the outskirts of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.

Set just an easy walk into the heart of the historic harbour town of Yarmouth, on the west coast of the Isle of Wight, this is an ideal base for a fun-filled, break away. The home was fully refurbished within the past couple of years, with a brand new glass conservatory installed in the spring of 2019.

The living room has an 180 degree panoramic view of the Solent, which has a real wow factor.

The room is a wonderful space, both for relaxation and entertaining.

The Smart TV with premium fibre broadband, has access to many channels, including YouTube, Amazon Prime and Netflix (using your own account) and the iPod dock, allows you to listen to your favourite tracks with surround sound.

There is even a hand carved wooden mango chest full of games, puzzles and books, if you wish a break from technology. In addition to the living room, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

A super king size master bedroom with basin, vanity unit and seaview, a king size bedroom with basin, vanity unit and garden view, and a twin bedroom with a garden view (which can be arranged as a super king bed on request).

The bathroom on this floor includes a bath with shower over, a heated towel rail, sink, modern LED mirror and WC. On the ground floor there are two further bedrooms, a spacious super king size ground floor master bedroom and a spacious twin bedroom (which can be arranged as a super king size bed on request).

Both bedrooms have partial sea views.

A luxury tiled shower room is situated next to the bedrooms and includes a shower enclosure with rainshower head and handset, a heated towel rail, sink, modern LED mirror and WC. Beyond the bathroom is an open plan kitchen and dining area.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a range cooker, microwave, American fridge freezer and dishwasher and the dining area seats 10 people comfortably.

In addition there is a Smart TV positioned on the wall, which makes this a truly versatile space for entertaining children and adults alike. The side door from the kitchen leads you into the south facing conservatory which is perfect both morning and night.

Sunny and bright in the morning and on a clear night look up through the glass roof and count the numerous stars in the night sky! Beyond the conservatory is a south facing patio and garden, perfect for alfresco dining or sunbathing.

Just off from the conservatory is a very handy utility room with WC and belfast sink and houses the laundry facilities. Beyond the garden is the drive and parking for three cars.

The house is perfectly situated to explore the island, whether by car, bike or on foot.

The pathway down to the seafront is immediately in front of the house and is an easy 10 minute stroll in to Yarmouth.

The old railway track line is only a couple of minutes walk past the house and is one of the beauty spots of the island, with its vivid wildlife and stunning countryside views.

The house is also well located for shops, cafes and restaurants and to explore the many island attractions, with less than a 15 minute drive to the south and west points of the island and less than a 30 minute drive to the centre of the island.

There is also a bus stop within a minutes walk of the house, to explore the island at ease. The house is perfect for families, perfect for friends, perfect for gatherings, perfect for exploring and perfect for romantic mini breaks.

Perhaps after a busy day out, walk down to the seafront and relax and unwind on a bench, whilst the sun sets over the Solent.

This holiday home has it all.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
