Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A pretty Victorian cottage in the heart of the Old Town of the world-famous sailing town of Cowes. A cosy sitting-room, two nice double bedrooms and a well-appointed kitchen, plus a sunny walled courtyard with a pretty seating area. A stone's-throw from the lively High Street, with independent shops such as butcher and fishmonger, plus small supermarkets, pubs and restaurants; a few minutes' flat walk from local transport links and the sailing & yacht clubs.

The space
The cottage has a warm, cosy feel and is a great base for visiting the Island. With two double bedrooms, it can comfortably sleep two couples or friends; kids are fine, but the stairs are steep. The kitchen has everything you could need for cooking and dining in; the courtyard seating area is great for sitting out on warm evenings.

Guest access
The whole house is available for guests, plus there's a little courtyard, perfect for sitting in the sun in summer, with an outhouse, where you can store and dry wet gear, bicycles, kayaks and so on.

Other things to note
We don't charge a cleaning fee, but there will be an additional charge if the cottage is left in a poor condition - for example, particularly dirty or untidy.

Hi! I'm Virginia, and I'm lucky enough to live in the lovely little town of Cowes, on the Isle of Wight. I love cycling and walking, and a bit of sailing, so really I'm in the perfect place!
