Holiday Rental House
House on the Shore is a modern three-bedroom house with fabulous views over the sea from the master bedroom, from the first floor living room, and the en-suite family room on the top floor. The living room has a balcony, from where you can enjoy a glass of wine while watching the evening sun set over the water. The spacious master bedroom on the ground floor has French windows opening directly onto the front lawn. It's lovely to sit out there with an early morning cup of tea, and take deep breaths of fresh sea air. Also on the ground floor is another double bedroom (overlooking the garden), the family bathroom and a utility room (with washing machine, iron/ironing board, clothes horse etc). On the first floor, the living room has plenty of space with two large sofas, a TV and DVD player,...House on the Shore is a modern three-bedroom house with fabulous views over the sea from the master bedroom, from the first floor living room, and the en-suite family room on the top floor.

This room connects through to a large fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, freezer, oven/hob and more tables and chairs. The space upstairs is the family room, with a double bed, a bunk-bed, a small single bed suitable for a toddler, and an en-suite shower room. The fully enclosed garden is south-facing, and fills with sun all day long. There's outdoor chairs and table for those memorable alfresco breakfasts and lunches with family or friends. From the garden a door leads into the private secured garage for car and/or bikes, and there is additional parking in the car park for one other car. There is free wifi available at House on the Shore.More

About the neighbourhood
The immediate surrounds of the house are very peaceful, and yet full of adventure and wonder. There are beaches, walks, woodlands, cycle routes, nature, kids attractions, and beach-fronted cafe bars, right on the doorstep. Exit the back of the cottages and you walk straight onto the Isle of Wight coastal path, through a woodland conservation area, some stunning views of the Solent, long sandy beaches, coastal fortresses, and dramatic chalk cliffs - all part of the famous Heritage Coast here.
Getting around
House on the Shore is a 3-4 minute drive (or 15 minute walk) along the coast from the historical harbour town of Yarmouth, the arrival point for the car ferry from Lymington in the New Forest. If you don't want to bring a car, there is a very good bus network all over the island, a regular bus stop at the end of the road, and a request stop at the fort. You can also rent bikes at the old train station next to the river in Yarmouth. If you like walking the whole area is a paradise. The 15 minute walk to Yarmouth runs along the beach and coastal pathway to the edge of the harbour (Sandhart Beach), which you can either walk around, or take the £1.50 harbour water taxi straight into town.
