Woodland Cottage, Fort Victoria

Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, England
Woodlands Cottage is a stunning four bedroom property overlooking the sea and set in well over an acre of it's own private woodland on the west coast of the Isle of Wight. The property is incredibly tranquil and secluded.

The master bedroom has a very spacious wooden decked balcony with fabulous sea views over the Solent, as well as it's own en-suite bathroom. The second double room also has sea views, and the twin room, and the single/twin room downstairs overlook the woodlands to the rear. The double beds are king size, all the beds have high quality 'pocket sprung' mattresses.

Like everything else in the cottage, the kitchen is brand new for 2016. It features an American style fridge-freezer with chilled water and ice dispenser, as well as a dishwasher, microwave oven, washing machine, etc. The spacious kitchen opens...

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.

The wildlife in the woods is rich and diverse. There are foxes, badgers, plenty of rabbits and red squirrels in the woodlands (the Isle of Wight is famously a red squirrel sanctuary in England - one of the few places they haven’t been wiped out by the American grey).

At the other side of the co...
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: 40.0 km
Railway: Lymington Pier: 8.0 km
Ferry: Yarmouth: 2.0 km
Note that there is a single parking spot available for this cottage, although additional free parking is available at the nearby fort about 100 meters away.

The best (certainly most scenic) route to the West Wight is by car through the New Forest (drive via Beaulieu for a really magical journey) to Lymington ferry terminal. Woodland Cottage is a two minute drive from the this ferry's destination at Yarmouth. Other possible routes are Southampton to East Cowes and Portsmouth to Fishbourne.

If you are travelling by train, change at Brockenhurst and take the local Lymington Pier train (the train connects with the Lymington to Yarmouth ferry). There is a bus stop at the end of the road, and a good bus network on the island.
