Yafford is a hamlet at the southern end of the Isle of Wight, which is well known for its watermill, dating from the 18th Century. Yafford makes a great spot for birdwatchers and walkers, and the 'Round the Island' cycle route, on which Yafford is a stop, makes the hamlet popular with cyclists too. For beach bunnies, the sands at Atherfield are a mile away, and Ventnor is close by too, as is the family attraction Blackgang Chine, while the lovely Shanklin Chine and popular resorts of Ryde and Sandown are just over the other side of the Island (easily reached in under an hour). The village of Brighstone is 2 miles away, and Brightone Bay is also just down the road.
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.
