Self-catering holiday accommodation in Yarmouth
The attractive coastal town of Yarmouth is located on the North of the Isle of Wight and centres around a small harbour popular with keen sailors. With a lovely selection of boutique shops selling a variety of gifts, jewellery and local produce, you will also find a selection of pubs and restaurants where you can pop in to sample some of the excellent seafood on offer.
Home to a traditional seaside pier where you can watch the sailing boats and ferries from the mainland coming into the Harbour, it is also home to an impressive castle built by Henry VIII, now owned by English Heritage and open to the public. Yarmouth is an ideal base for exploring the West of the Isle and is a short drive or lovely coastal walk from the popular Alum Bay and The Needles.
You can also take the footpath or cycle down to Freshwater Bay, returning via the huge chalky cliffs of the Tennyson Downs. The perfect place for a bracing seaside walk or bike ride, the West Coast is one of the most picturesque areas on the island.
