Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Yarmouth - Tudor Lee

Spacious hideaway set in peaceful countryside near historic Yarmouth

‘Tudor Lee’ provides an independent relaxing retreat of a high standard, warm in winter, cool in summer.

It has its own entrance through a large conservatory which has a dining table for 'semi outdoor' dining and relaxing. There is a well-equipped kitchen linked to a dining room - with windows at 3 different levels!

The L-shaped living room, has a sofa and armchairs and an entertainment centre with TV/DVD. Stairs lead up from the flag-stoned entrance hall, entering the upstairs area through glazed oak frames. The large L-shaped bedroom has a 6ft zip linked bed, which may be used as two single divans. It also has a sofa bed and extra TV

The splendid bathroom has a large 'rain head' shower, corner bath with shower over, washbasin and loo.

A mature garden, with lawn and flowers, patio, garden furniture and a barbecue, is dedicated for use of guests, providing good outdoor living space in a peaceful environment sheltered by a little copse. Some visitors have seen our shy red squirrels!

Tudor Lee is a mile and a half from Yarmouth, our local town, where Wightlink Ferries arrive from Lymington, after a crossing of about 35 minutes. For those not wanting to bring a car, there is an hourly bus service.

Yarmouth is located on the western side of the Island at the mouth of the Yar estuary. The historic little town has grown as a result of its natural harbour, guarded by Yarmouth Castle, which was built by Henry VIII in 1547 The Harbour attracts international yachts and motor cruisers, whose crews take advantage of the moorings to enjoy the lively range of shops, and places to eat and drink in the town. The annual 'Old Gaffers Festival' in June sees a fleet of historic gaff rigged boats arrive and the town celebrates with music, markets and entertainments in the Square.

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.

Boats leave the harbour for fishing trips in the Solent and off the Needles, but for those preferring to stay in touch with shore, the listed wooden pier is a great place to go fishing, whether it be a serious quest for bass, or crabbing with the children. Pleasure boats leave for Bournemouth and Poole, and in the later summer months, ‘The Waverley’, an old paddle steamer, makes trips round the Island. Not only is the Island beautiful when your feet are on land, seeing it from the sea adds another dimension to that beauty.

Whilst there is plenty to watch from a seat on the harbour wall, gentle strolls along the Green and Promenade afford views of yachts and Solent shipping.

For the more energetic, the former railway track,‘the causeway’, along the Yar estuary, provides a delightful walk - you may be lucky enough to see one of the Island’s native red squirrels, and birdwatchers delight in the many species of birds nesting and feeding on the River Yar. Following the old railway track will lead you towards Freshwater, and perhaps lunch in a pub or café before returning on the footpath on the other bank.

Yarmouth 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 and shellfish. A small supermarket and a delicatessen provide a good range of food, much of it locally sourced.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived stressed but within a day this lovely cottage had worked its magic and we relaxed.

Found a new recommended walk, 4 miles circular through Yarmouth along the estuary. Why didn't we book 2 weeks?

The perfect holiday hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
Tudor Lee is a wonderful bolthole on the prettiest side of the island, just a few miles from Yarmouth and the coast. I stayed there with my two children, aged 9 & 11, and it was the perfect sized holiday home (small but not tiny) and also warm, comfortable and homely. Although there is only one bedroom, it is huge so sharing with the kids was not a problem. It would also make the perfect romantic hideaway for a weekend break, rain or shine. Owners Jill and Steve are welcoming and relaxed and dog Isla was a big hit with the kids. Big conservatory and beautiful garden too, which sadly we weren't able to make the most of because of the typical half-term weather! We look forward to retuning, though, Tudor Lee was a fantastic find.

Peaceful cottage set in beautiful countryside

  • 5 out of 5
Tudor Lee was clean and beautifully presented with freshly cut flowers in the reception rooms & bedroom,.... a thoughtful welcoming touch! It was very well equipped with a cosy sitting room, spacious double bedroom and luxurious bathroom. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory in the evening with a glass of wine, enjoying the peace and stillness. The gardens and orchards in April were lovely with daffodils, bluebells and wisteria coming into flower.
We had a wonderful week ,... so many walks to choose from ! Can definitely recommend walking on Tennyson Down from Freshwater Bay.
Yarmouth is only 1.5 miles away with great places to eat & drink, a good supermarket and excellent deli.
The owners of the property are very friendly and helpful, and the cottage contains lots of interesting suggestions of things to do and places to visit on the island.
I would highly recommend Tudor Lee to anyone looking for a beautiful, comfortable and relaxing place to stay whilst enjoying all that the Isle of Wight has to offer. This has been our 6th visit to Tudor Lee and we look forward to returning again.

Warm country get away

  • 5 out of 5
Tudor Lee is a beautifully and extremely comfortable apartment that is part of a heritage listed house on a farm. There is nothing more I would want in a holiday rental: everything is of a high standard. The beds are really comfortable. Views across the garden and the farm from the apartment are like they are from a painting. Our hosts are hospitable and have an exceptional knowledge of the local area that they generously share. Tudor Lee is a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year.

A wonderful few days away

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful few days away in a lovely cosy cottage. Just right for us and our 20 month old son. A cot was provided making it one less thing to have to pack.

The cottage was well equipped, clean and very homely. A great location for exploring all that the Isle of Wight had to offer. A peaceful countryside haven to back to after a busy day out, yet close to amenities.

The owners made us feel very welcome. They were only next door if you needed anything, but respected our privacy. They booked our ferry crossings for us before hand, getting them for a much cheaper rate than we could have done. Wight Link made a mistake with the crossing times and the owners went out of there way to sort it out for us.

Lots of great places to visit. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Just 2 hours from London by rail or road, with good motorway links to the Midlands, the ‘Garden Isle’ is easily accessible and well served by ferries, yet a relaxing ‘green’ destination for holidays and short breaks. At 23 miles long and 13 miles wide, the sea and spectacular Heritage coastline is never far.

An unrivalled network of footpaths gives access to unspoilt countryside – over is half designated as Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its mild climate makes it an ideal destination outside the summer months, when it enjoys a deserved reputation for family holidays.

Sites such as Brading Roman villa, Carisbrooke Castle, royal Osborne House, historic little Yarmouth and charming villages across the Island, offer glimpses of a favoured lifestyle through the ages.

Today the Isle of Wight offers relaxation and fine food in peaceful surroundings. There are outdoor opportunities for walkers, cyclists and water sport enthusiasts, - and award-winning music festivals.

Other Activities: music festivals summer carnivals yacht racing

Golf: Temporary Membership is available at Freshwater Bay Golf Club. We believe it has the most spectacular views of any, out across the Isle of Wight and the Solent, back to the mainland or out into the Channel. Combine your golf with lunch at the Farringford Hotel - Lord Tennyson's home just a mile away.
