“Comfortable, clean, convenient cottage in Cowes”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Great place to stay - always clean and tidy, welcoming and easy to find. Very close to the shops in Cowes and easy to get around the whole island from this base. Would definitely recommend - has everything you could need and a lovely garden too.

“Great place for exploring Cowes”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have stayed with Tracy for a number of years now sharing the cottage with friends. The cottage is close to the ferry from Southampton, perfect as you can walk to the cottage from the ferry. You are a short walk from Cowes with the shops and restaurants, also nice walks in either direction along the coast.

The cottage is always clean, fresh and welcoming. You feel relaxed and "on holiday" as soon as you walk through the door. There is parking for a small car on the front and a charming garden with a lot of outside seating and tables. There is one large room inside with a dinning table and a lounge seating area which is great for socialising.

We will definitely be back!

“Ideal family retreat with fantastic beaches - loved it!!”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

With a young family (3 boys 9,10 & 11), the house we stay in on holiday has to be right for us and this one definitely ticked all of the boxes. Comfortable lounge and fully equipped kitchen.

Bedrooms were spacious and the boys swapped a few times, just for the fun of it. We do love the Isle of Wight and will, without doubt, be back to this cottage as soon as we can.

“Great holiday home”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Very comfortable, clean home, with everything you could possibly need available for your stay. The beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with equipment. The garden is also very nicely set out. Loved the welcome basket with cava, orange juice, milk, crisps, sweets and mini jams. There is loads of information on the Isle of Wight attractions available, and books, DVDs and games for quiet times. Would definitely recommend it for your holiday home. Very good quick, polite contact from the owner with any questions we asked answered promptly and in detail.

The house itself is situated in a long terraced street. Cowes is quite a busy area, but you are quite near to the excellent Duke of York pub down the street and the shops, pubs and restaurants are a very short walk away, so is the sea and the chain link ferry. There are plenty of places to choose to eat out for your meals and there is also a small Sainsburys in the town centre for supplies. Cowes is quite a good base to stay to explore that side of the Island.
