About the property

3 bedrooms, bathroom & ensuite, sleeps 6, stunning rooms, top floor sea view

This beautiful Isle of Wight holiday cottage is located on the High Street in the heart of historic Yarmouth – one of the gateways to the Isle of Wight. Lavender Cottage, an end of terrace 3 bedroom Victorian town house, was renovated and extended in 2013/14 and is full of period features. With spacious rooms, high specification kitchen and bathrooms, this very grand residence is a few minutes walk away from the Solent and village green in one direction and Yarmouth’s fashionable shops, restaurants and pubs in the other direction.

You will enter a high ceilinged hallway which leads, on the ground floor, to a large sitting room and separate kitchen/breakfast room. A glazed end wall and French door opens onto a private courtyard garden. On the first floor you will find a double bedroom, family bathroom, and a grand master bedroom with ensuite shower room. Up a further (very steep and narrow staircase) is a further double bedroom with a sea view from the front window. The main house has gas central heating via radiators and underfloor heating in the kitchen/breakfast room, ideal for holidays and short breaks all year round.

1 well behaved dog accepted. Cycles can be stored in garden outhouse by prior arrangement.

Please note that, like many properties in Yarmouth, this cottage does not have allocated parking. Visitor car parking permits are available for your use which allow free parking within designated bays, many of which are within easy reach of the cottage. You can also buy Tourist Permits valid for use in the majority of on and off street pay and display parking bays across the entire Island.

Guests staying for 7 nights or more are welcomed with a hamper of local island produce. A typical hamper will include milk, cheese, butter, biscuits, lemonade, jam, cake, eggs, (items can be swapped on request). Coffee, tea & sugar are also provided in the property.

Yarmouth is a beautiful town at the mouth of the River Yar and is full of history such as the 16th century Yarmouth castle and Grade II listed pier, both offering magnificent views of the Solent. The small streets are charming, the shops a delight and there is a plentiful array of pubs and restaurants. Nearby attractions include Fort Victoria and Needles Park. Yarmouth is in the heart of splendid countryside with the River Yar estuary, Bouldnor, Hamstead and Newtown offering great places for walking or cycling.

With easy access to Yarmouth ferry port, coastal walks and cycle trails this Isle of Wight holiday cottage is ideal for walkers and cyclists – please ask for our discounted foot & vehicle ferry deals and our car-free travel packs when booking. This winter we are offering combined holiday cottage and ferry discounted deals with Red Funnel.

Note in 2017 there is building work diagonally opposite the cottage. There may be occasional noise, especially if you are in the front of the cottage. The work is usually restricted to week days between 8m and 5pm.

Amazing property in Yarmouth

  • 5 of 5

My Swedish daughter in law says amazing, amazing, amazing !!

It was a perfect holiday cottage for a family of six, beautifully maintained and equipped and in an ideal situation.

My 9 year old grandson unfortunately broke a glass, but apart from that I hope that it was left in perfect order.

Thank you very much and when we return to Yarmouth in the future we would love to rent this property again.

A well appointed house in a lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the house for one week. Our group was three couples.

The house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, with a kitchen large enough to be a sociable space. Importantly, there was ample crockery, cutlery and glasses, so the dishwasher was only used when full. We stayed during very high temperatures and it would be fair to say the upstairs bedroom did seem oppressively warm.

Yarmouth is a charming small town. There are local small shops and several places to eat locally. Further afield, there are attractions, walks, restaurants, beaches and sites to see to suit every taste. The Hut in Colwell Bay was a particularly delightful setting wi5h fabulous seafood. Do book.

Great stay at Lavender Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at lavender cottage, it was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated, really felt like a home away from home. There was a lovely hamper of local produce upon arrival and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location is fantastic, just a quick stroll into Yarmouth and a stones throw away from Yarmouth common by the sea - which the dog loved, we will be back next year!

Owner's Response: This is the first year of holiday letting for Lavender Cottage so delighted to be getting such wonderful reviews. The great location of this cottage within a few minutes walk of Yarmouth's classy shops, restaurants, pubs as well as the common and sea is proving a real winner.

A lovely house refurbished to a high standard and tastefully decorated.

Good sized bedrooms but top room has tricky stairs and gets very hot! Kitchen well appointed but a squeeze for larger groups.location is excellent.

Owner's Response: This is the first year of holiday letting for Lavender Cottage (Yarmouth, Isle of Wight) and feedback welcome. We are having a gorgeous summer on the Island and the top floor bedroom is getting hot - the owners are looking to address this. Please do look at the photos to see the stairs as they are tricky especially for young children and those with limited mobility - but part of the property's charm! And worth it for the sea view!
