Sea View Cottage Fort Victoria
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Sea View Cottage is a stunning two bedroom cottage overlooking the sea at Fort Victoria, a short walk away from the pretty 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.

The Isle of Wight region
Popular since Victorian times as a holiday resort, the Isle of Wight is known for its outstanding natural beauty and for its world-famous sailing based in Cowes.
The island has a rich history including its own brief status as a nominally independent kingdom in the fifteenth century. It was home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Queen Victoria built her much loved summer residence and final home Osborne House at East Cowes.
The island's maritime and industrial history encompasses boat building, sail making, the manufacture of flying boats, the world's first hovercraft and the testing and development of Britain's space rockets. It is home to the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival, Bestival and the recently-revived Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was one of the largest rock music events ever held. The island has some exceptional wildlife and is also one of the richest fossil locations for dinosaurs in Europe.
Yarmouth, Isle of Wight
Yarmouth, a very pretty harbour town, 10-15 minutes walk along the seafront. Yarmouth is the smallest town in the UK, and also the oldest town on the Island. Yarmouth Castle, a stone artillery fortress built for Henry VIII in the mid 16th century.
Blackgang Chine and Robin Hill. Two great adventure parks for children. Robin Hill is the venue for Bestival in September.
The Needles Battery. Overlooking the Needles, one of the most rescognisable coastal features in England, the battery was built in the latter part of the 19th century to defend the Solent against France. Also the testing site for the Black Knight and Black Arrow, Britains' first space rocket.
Appledurcombe House. Kids can learn falconry at the Owl and Falconry Centre.
Carisbrooke Castle. Famous as the castle where Charles I was imprisoned before his execution.
Osbourne House. The summer home of Queen Victoria, and the place where she died
Brading Roman Villa. Fascinating excavations of a Roman villa. Great for kids, who get to dress up as Romans as they wander round the ruins.
Dimbola Lodge. The Freshwater home of Julia Margaret Cameron, the famous Victorian portrait photographer. The house is now a museum with permanent exhibitions of Cameron's work and photography of the Isle of Wight pop festival.
Fort Victoria. Home to a marine aquarium, model railway, underwater archaeology, planetarium

"Wonderful place to relax and unwind"
Spotted the cottage from the ferry on the crossing from Lymington (which was so easy). We had a car so only took 10 minutes to get there but it would have been possible to walk from the ferry if you were fit. Very welcoming with an unexpected gift of wine, local apple juice and shortbread that set the tone for the rest of the stay. Should not miss Osborne House if staying on the island. Nowhere too far to get to see - a little step back to an old fashioned British holiday location but with better food! New Inn in Shalfleet has wonderful fresh fish and a fabulous cream tea at Warren Farm was perfect. Take your slippers and relax at the cottage in the evening watching the boats on the water.
