Description

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.

We have had a lovely stay in Waterfront Retreat

We have had a lovely stay in Waterfront Retreat, thanks! The beds are very comfy & the bunk beds are a lovely, safe design. The house had a relaxing atmosphere & we love the style & all the quirky bits. We all loved the huge shower – even the kids wanted to get washed!

Thank you...

Thank you so much for a beautiful, short stay to kick start our honeymoon. Even though this is our second time visiting, I was still amazed at the beauty and tranquillity of Yarmouth and at Waterfront Retreat itself. You have thought of absolutely everything; meaning not only is the cottage gorgeous but well equipped and ready for everything! As I am sure you know, it certainly feels like home here – you guys are very good at this stuff!! Its been wonderful to relax after an amazing but busy wedding weekend and we even managed to see more of the island this time around – great recommendations, thanks.

Fantastic place to stay!

Fantastic place to stay! We enjoyed our stay so much at Waterfront Retreat, the decor is so fresh, bright, clean and airy and the view from the bedroom over the harbour is gorgeous. There is a lovely private decking area which is a great suntrap and there is everything you could possibly need inside. The bed is super comfortable, which made it hard to get up in the morning! The owners are so friendly and really can't do enough for you, yet they will also leave you to your own devices unless you need them, so are not "in your face".... perfect! You can walk to the shops and restaurants in Yarmouth easily along the waterfront which is really pretty & peaceful.... great sunsets along here too. It's a level walk too so really pleasant. We would definitely recommend a stay here and will be returning ourselves.

We had a wonderful stay at Waterfront Retreat

Everything we needed was here and was complemented by Sam and Louise’s warmth and charm. We still haven’t seen all the island can offer, so we must make a point of returning in the future. Thank you.

Lovely break

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 Café, Off the Rails & On the Rocks were also all good. With all this & the fact that we had good weather-perfect!

Everything in the house is such beautiful quality

We have really enjoyed staying here - everything in the house is such beautiful quality and it feels so homely. The shower is amazing and our children enjoyed this - our 3 year old pronounced she was having 'too much fun' in it! Yarmouth is a lovely town. We enjoyed crabbing, visiting the windmill, the castle (with cute donkeys) and the battery. The beaches are fab too. Thanks for a great holiday.

Waterfront Retreat, Yarmouth

Thank you so much for such a beautiful stay. This was booked as a Valentines surprise and the special touches you put in place will make this a Valentines we shall never forget. The roses, chocolates and champagne only added to what was already a magical place. A real home from home, beautifully furnished, tranquil and relaxing. It is also a great location from which to visit the rest of the island from. We would love to stay again - a perfect stay.

The accommodation was great

We have really enjoyed our time at the Waterfront Retreat. The accommodation was great – no complaints! We loved Blackgang Chine (especially at night), Robin Hill, Carisbrooke Castle, Shanklin beach and crabbing in Yarmouth. Dinosaur Isle was great for when it rained. We did not manage to fit everything in as there is so much to do, so we will definitely be back. Many thanks.

We have had a lovely week

We have had a lovely week. The Waterfront Retreat is lovely, very clean and the beds very comfy. Callum does not want to go home! We have had some great days out which include Osbourne House with Punch and Judy on the beach which was a big hit for our 4 year old, as was crabbing in Yarmouth and Blackgang Chine. Fort Victoria and Dinosaur Isle passed a couple of wet afternoons. We will be sad to go home! Many thanks.

Waterfront Retreat is a lovely little base for our adventures

We have had a wonderful week. Waterfront Retreat is a lovely little base for our adventures. It’s a comfortable, well equipped and relaxing place to come back to. The kids loved their bunk beds and we all loved the shower. The coffee machine is a nice touch for morning cappuccinos and the outside seating has been a bonus for the wonderful weather we have had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you!

An absolute treat from start to finish

What can we say? Fabulous weather has been the icing on the cake for our week’s stay at Waterfront Retreat. The accommodation is a perfect base from which to explore the island and has been exquisitely furnished with a lot of thought being put into exactly what is required of a holiday retreat. Our holiday has been an absolute treat from start to finish. Wonderful day at Osbourne House was a highlight. Lovely meals at The bugle and The Wheatsheaf in Yarmouth and takeaway from The Blue Crab also. We will be back….

A fabulous week had by all made even better by the gorgeous weather. Waterfront Retreat was the perfect base to explore the West of the island. So much to see and do and being right on the waterfront made mummy very happy! The boys had a great week body boarding – Colwell Bay and particularly Compton for the waves were a huge hit. We love the Isle of Wight and are sure to be back.

Discovered somewhere ‘a bit special’

We’ve had a lovely week at waterfront Retreat, we feel as though we’ve discovered somewhere ‘a bit special’ finding your lovely accommodation! A great base to explore the island from, memorable days out watching the surfers at Niton, a boat trip to see The Needles up close, best of all was Compton Beach – so beautiful. It was lovely to drive home after dinner each evening watching the amazing summer sunsets and knowing we had a lovely, homely place to return to. Just the break we needed, thank you!

Fabulous accommodation, great location especially to explore West Wight and to walk into Yarmouth most evenings.

Fabulous accommodation, great location especially to explore West Wight and to walk into Yarmouth most evenings. The weather has been exceptional – been able to swim at Compton and at Colwell beaches and have enjoyed walks from Yarmouth along the Freshwater Way and from the Needles Battery to Freshwater Bay. We were hoping to see a red squirrel along the way and to our great surprise we did – back at Waterfront Retreat at the bottom of the garden!!

We loved our time staying in the Waterfront Retreat

We loved our time staying in the Waterfront Retreat – it is a beautiful place, the style feels fresh and clean – like everything is brand new. Even though we knew we weren’t, we felt like the first people to stay here! We had a wonderful, relaxing time here – even though the property is attached to the owner’s house it felt very private & self-contained. Yarmouth is a beautiful little town and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here – we definitely intend to return! Thank you for a wonderful stay! Ps The shower is amazing!

Thank you for a wonderful stay at ‘Waterfront Retreat’. We couldn’t fault a single thing. We have thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days here and wish we’d booked longer. The Retreat is amazing – comfy beds, huge shower & the great decking area are fab. Absolutely great that we didn’t need to bring anything from home – kitchen well equipped! We will be back!
