Sail Loft Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
Sail Loft, is set within a converted boathouse, situated on the beach and coastal path, within walking distance of the town of Yarmouth, on the Isle of Wight. This is a lovely open plan apartment that has a light and airy open plan living area, with large windows and a Juliet balcony which overlooks the beach and sea. The living area consists of a sitting area, dining area and fitted kitchen area, plus this apartment has two bedrooms - one double and one twin. Sail Loft also has its very own private slipway, perfect for launching your own boat. Next to this cottage apartment is a licensed cafe and the nearest shops and pubs are in Yarmouth, a 10 minute stroll away. Sail Loft is an ideal base for exploring the Isle of Wight.

Yarmouth, the oldest town on the Isle of Wight, is a bustling seaside town that welcomes all kinds of boats and ferries to its harbour. The town has wonderful narrow streets and a delightful range of shops and inns. An essential attraction to visit is Henry VIII's castle and amongst the many other activities that can be enjoyed are cycling and walking along the coastal path and a walk across to the nearby Tennyson Down. Watersports enthusiasts should head to the beaches at Colwell and Totland Bays. Further afield, the towns of Newport and Ryde are well worth visiting.Yarmouth suits all tastes and is a perfect base.

The Isle of Wight, with its beaches, unspoiled scenery, rich heritage and over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths is a walker's paradise, or if sailing is your thing, the renowned annual Cowes Week is not to be missed.

The Sail Loft was lovely. The view was amazing like nowhere we have ever stayed before. It was warm, comfortable frankly wonderful. There was adequate parking we had no issues with noise. Yarmouth is a truly charming place. The walk in from the Sail Loft was 15-20 minutes, but delightful. We would return without a second thought.

The location of the property is ideal. Close to Yarmouth and bus routes. Views of the sea/Solent very interesting. The property was comfortable and warm which given I was there in November was vital.

A comfortable, clean and well maintained property with excellent views. The apartment overlooks the Solent and is within walking distance of Yarmouth with its shops and eating places. A brilliant holiday apartment for a family.

This is the second time we have rented this property, as the location is superb. To open the French windows and hear the sea on the shingle is wonderful, and to watch the boats on the Solent, and to hear the rain on the roof is all very soothing. Also the new Boathouse restaurant was an added bonus.

The location of the property, listening to the waves and watching the boats. It was a joy to return to after a day out.

We enjoyed the fantastic view from the lounge. We wanted a sea view and the apartment felt almost like a cruise, but without the motion. As for the 'star' rating, we felt it should be higher! We plan to book the flat again.

It is a super flat right on the edge of the Solent. Very easy to find, 5 minutes from the ferry. Spacious.
July 2015
Great views and a fairly peaceful and very convenient position. The apartment is very spacious with good parking and instant access to the beach and sea. Down side was the apartment is in need of a little updating with particular attention to the pillows and bedding. It would have been nice to have had a dvd player and also internet access. Having said that the owner was very quick to help with any minor problem we had. I would certainly visit again as this is such a wonderful spot.

Really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The view from the front room was a fantastic panoramic view of the Solent. The apartment is within easy walking distance of Yarmouth, which is a lovely picturesque village with a good selection of shops and eating places. We will definitely be booking this apartment again.

We had a week at SailLoft,the perfect place to stay for a few quiet days with only the sound of the sea for company. It is within walking distance of Yarmouth for great places to eat and Yarmouth is so convenient for the ferry.

We wanted to be close to the sea. As we booked late (and were going to the island during Cowes week!) we did not really expect to get in, but... Sail Loft is actually on the beach!! The view from the lounge is like being on a ship, but without the movement. The house was spotlessly clean and offered excellent accomodation. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities too. Ok, so the ceilings get low in places. That might bother some people, but we loved it. The location is 'out of town' and you need your own transport, but Fort Victoria is a place we know well, so there were no surprises there. We all hope to go there again; what more can I say?

There was an amazing view over The Solent from this lovely apartment. Had a superb holiday and the weather was perfect. There was so much to see on the Isle of Wight. Didn't see anywhere on the island that could have been more lovely than this one with its fabulous view and balcony.
