About the neighborhood
Lovely harbour town 300m easy flat walk, with shops and a very good selection of pubs and eating places. Ideal for sailors, and with Yacht moorings just 100 yards offshore from the property of The Boathouse River Cottage. Grab a harbour taxi and they will take you directly to the door of the properity! Just 20 minutes walk or 10 minutes drive away is Freshwater Golf club, and the Sailing centre of Cowes is 15 minutes drive away. Watch video;
Getting around
Just 300m from the amazing destination harbour town of Yarmouth, and lots of lovely shops, pubs and places to eat. Easy walking distance to all amenities. Fantastic walks right on your doorstep. Absolutely stunning location. You do not need a car as it is so close to the ferry, but for longer stays a car will allow you to visit other places on the IOW much easier.
