Waterfront Retreat in the Isle of Wight sailing resort of Yarmouth is a 2-bedroom holiday cottage. It is stylish decorated and furnished to create a sense of relaxation using driftwood ornaments and calming seaside colours for 2-4 guests (snd red squirrels living at the bottom of the garden).
- Sleeps 4
- Bedrooms 2
- Bathrooms 1
As part of the renovation to the main house (known as Waterfront house), Waterfront retreat is a lovingly designed cottage annexe with private entrance that has been created with style and relaxation in mind.
If the flourish of designer driftwood ornaments and the pallet of seaside shades don’t transport your imagination to a sandy beach on a warm summer’s day, then the views from the property will do. This Waterfront Retreat is set on the Yarmouth shore making it a truly wonderful base from which to enjoy the delights of seaside living on this beautiful island.
The recently renovated annexe has a lovely kitchen and a beautiful light and airy sitting room which overlooks the main garden, providing plenty of space for you to relax and enjoy your stay. From the master bedroom, there are great views over the Solent to the north and far reaching countryside views to the south. Outside is a private enclosed decking area with table, chairs and a BBQ; perfect for alfresco dining at any time of the day. If you are lucky you may even be able to watch the resident family of rare red squirrels at the bottom of the garden.
The attractive seaside town of Yarmouth is the oldest town on the Isle of Wight. Its busy harbour is a haven for all kinds of watercraft with the terminal used for regular mainland ferry crossings to Lymington. Yarmouth's narrow streets are home to an attractive array of shops and inns and a visit to Henry VIII's castle is not to be missed.

THE PERFECT RETREAT! by Submitted by Barbara Miles, Cambridge on 11/07/2016 on February 8th 2017
We had a wonderful week based at Waterfront Retreat Everything has been thought of and it is a real home from home. The short walk into Yarmouth was perfect for access to several pubs & restaurants without having to drive if you don't want to cook and Yarmouth has everything you need if you do. Also, access to the rest of the island is easy particularly if you have a car. There are lots of good walking paths & sights to see. We would definitely recommend the battery at the Needles, Carisbrooke Castle & Osborne- even better if you are NT & English Heritage members! We had a lovely anniversary meal at The Hut at Colwell Bay & a gorgeous meal at Sorenna in Yarmouth- the food here is Michelin standard but not prices! Gossips Cafe, Off the Rails & On the Rocks were also all good. With all this & the fact that we had good weather: Perfect!
