Sea View Cottage is a stunning two bedroom cottage overlooking the sea at Fort Victoria, a short walk away from the gorgeous harbour town of Yarmouth on the West coast of the Isle of Wight. Sandwiched between the coast on one side, and the Fort Victoria country park on the other, the cottage is situated in an idyllic and extremely peaceful setting, with plenty to do and see right on the doorstep. There are two private gardens: one at the rear which backs onto the woodlands and a network of paths on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path; and another at the front which overlooks the green at the front and the beach. The cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms (plus one child in a put-up bed or travel cot in the master bedroom). Both the master bedroom and the living room have amazing sea views.

The living room has oak flooring, leather sofas and an open wood fire. It also has a TV/DVD combo, a library of DVD films and a book library. We never use contract cleaners; the cottage is cleaned to a very high standard by a local woman who takes great pride in making the cottage immaculate for guests. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need for a wonderful self-catering holiday in a little corner of paradise. Free high-speed wifi internet available.More

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 neighborhood
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.
