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.

For the more adventurous, continue the walk at the front of the property, along the coastal path to Totland Bay, the famous Alum bay and the Needles, and along to Tennyson Down. The Isle of Wight has something for everyone all year round. walking, cycling, watersports, horse riding, and lots of entertainment for children, whatever the weather. The West Wight has some excellent beaches and stunning vistas. Excellent restaurants can be found to suit all tastes. Built in the 1850's, the coastguard cottages were originally designed to house officers stationed at Fort Victoria. The external walls are 15' thick, and were designed to withstand the vibrations from the cannons located at the fort. The maritime museum at Fort Victoria and the Needles battery at Alum Bay have lots of information.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.
