A cozy holiday home in a beautiful and convenient location

5 of 5
My wife and I had a lovely week's stay in November 2017 using the Boat House as our Yarmouth base. This compact and cosy property was absolutely ideal for our needs. Stunning views from all rooms and ideally located for the island's coastal walks with only a really short walk in to the restaurants of Yarmouth for lunch or dinner. The property has a Jacuzzi which seemed to have been really popular with previous guests but we didn't find the time to try it as the weather was excellent all week. The owners are really pleasant and helpful and clearly always trying to improve the facilities. Interestingly a log burner is currently being added but the accommodation was toasty already so there really isn't the need. Parking is 30m away at a neighbouring property and there are 9 sleeper steps up to the Boat House (these can be a challenge in the dark) just in case these might issues for you. We simply used the torch feature on our mobile phones when we returned late at night on the unlit path. All in all, WE LOVED IT! Really highly recommended for a couple or small family (with or without a four-legged friend).

A beautiful house in a beautiful location. We were booked into Solent Cottage but the owners contacted us a week before to say we had been upgraded and was that ok! It was absolutely fine by us and what a treat. Woodland Cottage was stunning. Perfectly equipped, modern but cosy, clean, comfortable - it had it all, even children's toys. The owners had thought of everything, including a handy info pack of things to do in and around the area. We were there in chilly November but we are already thinking about whether we can go back in the Summer. This house would be a perfect place to stay with a couple of friends or family. It has great outdoor space which the extension opens out onto on two sides. The house is really close to the shore and has gorgeous views across the Solent. The only disappointment was that we didn't get to see any red squirrels but you can't have everything.
