Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday bungalow in Yarmouth - Orchard Lee

Near Yarmouth 4 en suite bedrooms sleeps 2-10 spacious living with veranda

Spacious 'Green' Award-winning luxury self catering bungalow in peaceful countryside, 2 miles from picturesque Yarmouth with harbour, ferry, restaurants and pubs - great for families or groups. With easy access to beaches, walks and trails, golf and watersports, and all the Island's attractions, 'Orchard Lee' provides a modern luxurious base for peaceful holidays for all who enjoy relaxing indoors or out in their own meadow. The house may be divided into two independent wings giving flexibility.

Having level entry, a wet room and direct access from parking, facilitates holidays for those with wheelchairs or restricted mobility, and their families.

Watch a barn owl hunting at dusk as you enjoy supper on the veranda, play cricket or rounders on the grass, relax by the log stove in winter after a day visiting historic Osborne or Carisbrooke Castle or walking the coastal path. Visit nearby restaurants or buy local produce at a Farmer's market to cook at home. ETC 4* 2011

WiFi available

'Green Accommodation Provider of 2007' award: 'Orchard Lee' was built to respect its privileged location to be environmentally friendly.

It uses a geothermal heat pump to provide hot water and underfloor heating. Wood for the wood burner is from our own woodland. There is a high level of insulation, ensuring the house is cool in summer, warm in winter.

The house has its own dirty water treatment plant. Low energy lighting is used , recycled paper products and environmentally friendly cleaning products. Waste is recycled where possible. There is good access to public transport and secure bike storage.

Wildlife: A great location for those keen to spot wildlife. Set in the peaceful West Wight, from the veranda it is possible to see barn owls and little owls hunting. Raptors such as kestrels, sparrow hawks and buzzards frequent the fields and may be seen daily from the house. Herons and egrets fly past; green and spotted woodpeckers breed in the trees on the land .....as do lapwings, pheasants, partridge and a myriad of common small birds.

There is a good population of hares in the fields - and the occasional red squirrel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where else could we have found such a comfortable well-equipped house for 3 generations to meet up, with plenty of space inside and out.

We enjoyed all the walks from the house, and there was good entertainment indoors for evenings.

A warm and helpful welcome was a bonus.

Great place for a relaxing break

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here as part of a large group and we had a brilliant weekend. The accommodation is modern and spacious with enough bathrooms for everyone to spread out and without tripping over each other - the owners Steve and Jill Cowley and their family also gave us a warm welcome.

This place is great for groups of friends and families alike - it's resplendent in a beautiful rural setting and ideally placed for getting round the Isle of Wight and only a short drive to a beach. For families, there are plenty of quiet roads and lanes to explore by bike and the overall beauty of the island makes it a brilliant place for a short break or a longer stay.

At night the lack of the usual orange "night glow" means it's a great place for star gazing and listening to the local owls - there's also a fire pit set back from the cottages so there's no excuse for not sitting out and enjoying the night sky.

Very nice and clean and well located for explorers

  • 5 out of 5
This is our second stay at Orchard Lee with our 3 children. They loved it as they can scoot right around the house on decking, the TV and iPads hardly got used. This is a great location with no light pollution if you enjoy star gazing. Also well located to Island attractions and a local supermarket 2.5 miles away in Freshwater. This year the Grandparents stayed overnight and the Great Grandparents who live on the island visited each evening. They all commented on the space, location and home comforts of Orchard Lee. The children loved it and already want to return. We hired the whole place and this gave us a children's end and parents end of the house, which meant we could all relax, giving them a bedroom and bathroom each! If you need a decent size place for a IOW trip I really can't recommend this enough, it's lovely. Enjoy the stars at night and beautiful views by day. Thanks again

Secluded, quiet and comfortable

  • 4 out of 5
Seven of us, including two wheelchair users, had a lovely long weekend here. The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived, warm and the south-facing verandah makes the most of any sunshine available. It's a great base for exploring the island. The owners' welcome was equally warm and I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Pet owners, just be aware that they won't be able to run free. The meadow is unfenced with a stream at the bottom.

Orchard Lee

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable house with 'green credentials'. It is an attractive building, with a wooden decked terrace around the whole property. It sits in a very large area of meadow, with beautiful views across to the Downs in the distance. Lots of space for children and active adults to take advantage of. The house is very comfortable and well fitted out, and extremely light and airy. It would be an ideal location for a holiday/break at any time of the year.

The house is located on a large arable farm in the West Wight, ideally placed for the Lymington/Yarmouth ferry, and at an easy distance from the Cowes ferries. We took our cars and spent many a happy hour exploring the wonderful West Wight, which is truly beautiful. The Island has a very good bus service, and I believe that a lot of visitors use this method of transport, also an ideal spot for bike lovers and of course for walkers.

In essence a very attractive, modern house with all the comforts you require for a wonderful holiday, with the added benefit that it can be split in two for two separate families/couples. A great location away from the noise of a town where you can enjoy the countryside and seaside and all it has to offer

Lovely, relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed at Orchard Lee on two occassions and each time I have been very impressed both with the location of the property (within easy driving distance of Yarmouth and numerous Isle of Wight attractions) and also with the standard of the accommodation itself. Rooms are comfy and the whole place has a contemporary yet homely style. I never fail to feel relaxed after a few nights here - it is, quite possibly, responsible for some of the best nights sleep I have ever had in my life! The Isle of Wight itself has a lovely calming quality and the tranquil, countryside setting of Orchard Lee with it's wonderful views out across the farm land just adds to the "escape from it all" appeal - I'll certainly be back for another getaway!

Winter activity venue

  • 5 out of 5
Many thanks for the hire of Orchard Lee weekend gone. Your venue is absolutely top class and we are all 100% impressed. What a base to have in the cold winter, beats B & B's or static caravans hands down. Even though everything looked new there was plenty of character, great setting & I'm sure your springer was friendly!

It was very peaceful & relaxing & an ideal base for our activities over the weekend.

Thanks, Chris.

Yarmouth, a ferry port and yachting centre, is located on the more peaceful western side of the Island at the mouth of the Yar estuary. The historic little town is guarded by Yarmouth Castle (English Heritage), built by Henry VIII in 1547 The harbour attracts international yachts and cruisers, and visitors who enjoy the lively range of shops, festivals and art exhibitions. The picturesque narrow streets and town square are lined by flower decked shops and pubs; restaurants range from Michelin star quality through family-friendly pubs to cafes with outside tables for celebrating fine weather late into the evening, many meals having an emphasis on local produce and freshly caught fish. Walks and rides start here, leading along the Yar estuary (excellent bird watching), to Downs, Tennyson Trail and beaches. Fishing, off road cycling and watersports may be arranged locally. Helpful Tourist Information base on the quay. Ferries (35 mins.) regularly from Lymington in the New Forest.
