Holiday Rental House
Wight Cottage is adjacent to Fort Victoria and close to the pretty harbour town of Yarmouth. The cottage has wonderful sea views from the master bedroom and from the living room, plus plenty of outside space for safe playing, barbequing with family/friends, or simply enjoying a book or a glass of wine, whilst watching boats sail by as the sun sets over the Fort. The cottage backs onto the Fort Victoria nature reserve, a network of paths that run through woodlands and down to the beach, and forms part of the Isle of Wight coastal path. A short walk away is some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain, and some fabulous beaches. Around half of the Isle of Wight is designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and much of it in the West Wight. The area is also packed with ...Wight Cottage is adjacent to Fort Victoria and close to the pretty harbour town of Yarmouth.

The area is also packed with historical and cultural landmarks, characterful pubs, and some wonderful attractions for kids. The cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms - a master bedroom and a twin bedroom, and an additional travel cot is available on request. There is a newly-installed bathroom with a 'shower/bath' and heated towel rail. The comfy living room features a sofa, armchair and a chaise longue and a log-burning stove. There is a flat screen TV with integrated DVD, a hi-fi system and an extensive library of DVDs, CDs, books and games. The kitchen is very modern, and fully equipped, and a separate dining room. Parking is available in the car park adjacent to the cottages, about 20m from the front door. There is no road near the cottages, making them exceptionally safe for children to play. There is a private garden to the rear of the property, a private courtyard/BBQ area to the front of the property, opening out to a very large communal garden in front of the beach. More

About the neighbourhood
The immediate surrounds of the cottage 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
The cottage 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.
