Rofford Lodge is an ideal holiday retreat, set amongst fir trees with lovely sunny enclosed garden, but just a 10 minute stroll into Yarmouth. The bright spacious open plan living area, good sized bedrooms, and three bathrooms make this lovely cottage ideal for families to holiday together. The pretty rear garden is an ideal place to sit and relax after exploring the beautiful coastline of the West Wight. Also lovely views and evening sun in the front garden.

Just minutes from the cottage is the sea promenade, with spectacular views across the Solent and mainland beyond. Across the road is a footpath that will lead you to the cycle way to Yarmouth & Freshwater which is along the route of the former railway line, this follows The Yar Estuary & river, which attracts walkers and bird watchers alike, and also provides a lovely walk on a summer evening.

Henry VIII built Yarmouth Castle as coastal defence and the Town Hall rebuilt in 1764 stands in the Square once used as a meat market until 1888. St.James Church (c1614) contains a fine white marble statue of Sir Robert Holmes, Governor of the Island in the late part of the 17th century.

Being so conveniently located, those seeking peace and quiet with miles of coastline and countryside to enjoy, Yarmouth is an ideal all year round resort. With the Yarmouth to Lymington car and passenger ferry docking in the harbour, holidaying with or without a car is easy. Places of interest and outstanding natural beauty include The Needles, Alum Bay with its coloured sands, chair lift and Pleasure Park, and Tennyson Down.

What the West Wight has to offer:
The West of the Isle of Wight is an area of outstanding natural beauty show casing the Island's iconic feature, the Needles. The dramatic and unspoilt coastline of the West Wight is very popular with walkers, bird watchers, nature lovers and those seeking a quiet, tranquil environment in which stay.

You must visit
Compton Bay's long sandy beach spanning the south west is non-commercialised and unspoilt and a popular spot for surfing, great family fun days out and for fascinating fossil finding. On the north west side sailors love to moor their boats in the safe harbour and step ashore to enjoy the old world charm of Yarmouth, with its variety of shops, superb pubs and restaurants and the 700 foot long pier boasting the splendour of the Victorian era.

Yarmouth Castle, Isle of Wight provides a magnificent picnic spot, with views over the Solent for a lovely relaxing family day by the sea. The Needles Park Chairlift continues to be a firm favourite with, the views are truly spectacular from the picturesque Needles Rocks and lighthouse to the multi-coloured sand cliffs, also look out for the marvellous turquoise colour of the sea.

Freshwater Bay golf course is one of the most spectacular courses in the UK. Set on the downlands overlooking the English Channel, this seaside links style course is 5,725 yards long, par 68 which provides a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Visitors are most welcome. Calbourne Water Mill, set in 10 acres of stunning rural landscape contains one of the oldest working water mills in the country, dating back to the Domesday Book. A great day out for all the family.

The Tennyson Trail is a 15 mile walk from Carisbrooke Castle to The Needles. The route follows across Bowcombe Down, through Brighstone Forest, across Mottistone Down, Brook Down & Afton Down to Freshwater Bay, then onto Tennyson Down & across West High Down to Alum Bay. The name of the trail comes from poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, a former resident of the Isle of Wight. There are several points of interest along the walk, including The Tennyson Monument on Tennyson Down and the spectacular view of The Needles.

Places to eat
Spoilt for choice, from the opulence of the George Hotel in Yarmouth to fish and chips with fantastic view from Totland pier. Together with a good a selection of cafes and pubs all pallets and budgets can be catered for.

Happy times with family! Lovely comfortable cottage.
Nice dinner in The Bugle in town along with the various coffee shops.
Coastal walk to the Needles highly recommended.
Try the New Inn Shalfleet for dinner too!

A great stay.

Wonderful stay again with family!
Thank you so much for the Welcome Hamper, cakes and flowers!
Such a comfortable cottage - you have thought of everything!!
See you next year!!

Rofford Lodge is a brilliant holiday home from home all the bells & whistles and the basic bits for kids.
Perfect position for exploring the Island. The welcome pack is a lovely touch.
We had a cracking lunch at the Hut and enjoyed numerous long afternoons in Colwell Bay. We even
ventured to Blackgang Chine and Hugo went on his first pony ride. Also spoilt by the weather. We'll
be back for sure. Thank you for having us!

Thank you Sara for another wonderful stay.
We all love it here, a real home from home.
The extra touches are so very much appreciated.
Thank you again and see you very soon.

We have been very lucky with the weather this week which has been sunny and bright most of the time.

Favourite spots, the old railway walk to "Off the Rails Cafe" excellent coffee and breakfasts. "The Bugle" pub
in Yarmouth and "Gossips Cafe" also really nice and all dog friendly.

Too many wonderful beach walks to mention, but Colwell and Totland Bay, just lovely.
Spectacular walk across the cliffs to The Needles viewpoint and lots of fun in the Alum Bay
sand shop. We really appreciated our warm and cosy Cottage at the end of everyday and slept well
after all the West Wight air.

Another great stay at Rofford Lodge love it here, beautiful house, great hospitality and
wonderful location. Owners go above and beyond to make your stay a very pleasant one indeed.
Of course we will be back.

Had a great time in Yarmouth, Rofford Lodge very suitable for our needs.
Thanks very much.

Brilliant accommodation everything we would wish for.
Thank you for the "goodies" in the basket much appreciated.
The Bugle Inn in Yarmouth - highly recommended.
Thank you for the use of your lovely Rofford Lodge.

Back again our 3rd visit, very nice and clean, lovely garden, our dog really enjoyed it too.

Thanks for letting dogs come as ours is part of our family. Very nice touch cleaner came after
1 week (a very nice lady too).

Lovely hamper many thanks.

Hope to be back again god bless you.

Very nice, well appointed cottage with a lovely large garden.
We had a lovely week exploring the Island for the first time, we even had
sunny weather for the first half of the week!

Godshill Model Village, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, all recommended, but
the star is just the Island itself, especially the coast between Shanklin and Yarmouth.

Lovely house in a good position - thanks particularly for the "goody box" to arrive too.
We have been blessed with sunny days and done lots of walking and exploring of the
area which is a part of the Isle of Wight that we've not been to before.

We had a lovely week. Thank you for a wonderful welcome basket.

We hope to return next year.
