House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
'Avalon House' is a light and airy Victorian semi-detached house with parking to the front and garden at the rear. New to the holiday lettings market in November 2013, the house has been redecorated, tastefully furnished and equipped, and is ideal for family holidays.
Situated in a residential area, close to the centre of this historic and picturesque harbour town. Packed with maritime history, this popular sailing resort boasts a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and sailing club. A great vantage point to admire the town, harbour and unspoilt coastline is Yarmouth's Victorian pier, which dates back to 1876 and is 700ft long.
Of historical interest is Yarmouth Castle, built by Henry VIII as a coastal defence and the Town Hall rebuilt in 1764 was once used as a meat market until 1888. St.James Church (c1614) contains a fine white marble statue of Sir Robert Holmes, Governor of the Island in the late part of the 17th century.
The Yar Estuary is close-by, attracting walkers and bird watchers alike. Take the cycle way to Freshwater, along the route of the former railway line, or enjoy a lovely, leisurely walk on a summer's evening.
With the Yarmouth to Lymington car and passenger ferry docking in the harbour, holidaying with or without a car is easy. Places of interest and of outstanding natural beauty include The Needles, Alum Bay with its coloured sands, chair lift and Pleasure Park, and Tennyson Down. This bustling coastal town is an ideal place for holidays all year round.
