Big thank you to Jill, the owner of the Yachtsman. She was incredibly helpful with booking and organising our stay. We were a group of 6 plus an infant, staying for two nights, and it was perfect! The house is beautifully kept and well equipped. It's located very close to the main high street, a two minute walk from the...

In addition to being close to the bus stop to Newport, The Yachtsman is only a short walk from the "floating bridge"...

Jill was on hand with a friendly welcome and quick overview of the property. As we explored a bit we realised it was nicer than we could...
