Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, England
Charming coastguard cottage situated at Fort Victoria Country Park near Yarmouth and Freshwater on the picturesque West coast of the Isle of Wight, enjoying stunning sea views across the Solent. The recently refurbished seaside cottage offers an excellent base for a self catering holiday with its easy access to the coastal path at the rear of the property and the local beaches at the front of the property.

The cottage and its location have to be experienced to be believed. Set in a quiet and peaceful location at Fort Victoria. Wake up to magnificent views across the Solent, and in the evening admire the beautiful sunsets over Hurst Point. The country park setting around the cottage offers a myriad of short walks through woodland paths. Take a walk along the sea front to Yarmouth, or stop at the harbour and catch the water taxi.

Interaction with guests
We've been holidaying since we were children, as have our parents before us, and even our grandparents had a little wooden holiday hut at nearby Colwell Beach. We know and love the area very well, and would be delighted to answer any queries you have or make any recommendations. A couple of weeks before your arrival we will send you a welcome pack of suggestions of our favourite restaurants at the moment, and the best things to do in the area. If we're not in the area at the time of your visit, definitely someone from our family will be, and will be happy to help you.

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.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Southampton: 15.0 km
Railway: Lymington Pier: 5.0 km
Ferry: Yarmouth: 1.0 km
The best route is through the New Forest to Leamington, and then Wightlink ferry to Yarmouth. The scenery through the New Forest is stunning, and you arrive on the island a few minutes from the cottage.

Alternative ferry crossings are Southampton to Cowes (Red Funnel) and Portsmouth to Fishbourne (Wightlink).

As you leave Yarmouth ferry terminal, turn right on the main roundabout and and cross the bridge over the River Yar.
Follow the main road as it bears left 90 degrees.
After about 400m turn right, following the brown sign to 'Fort Victoria Country Park'.
Continue over a small bridge, past some bungalows and over a hill, at the bottom of which the road bends left.
100m after this bend there is a dirt track to the left which leads to the cottage car park.
