Additional Rate and Availability Information
Please note - rental charges above are per week Saturday to Saturday. Arrival time is after 15:00, and departure by 10:00 please, on Saturday morning.

Upon confirmation of booking, a binding contract is created between us for the full rental, and a non-returnable 50% payment of the full rental charge plus the security deposit (£100) is due by return post. We require a UK landline telephone number and address to secure bookings. We are sorry but we don't currently offer long weekends; Saturday to Saturday is the standard let.

The balance of the rental must be received by us six weeks before the rental commences. In the event that full payment is not received by this date, we reserve the right to cancel the booking and re-allocate the property, though the balance remains due. For bookings made within six weeks of the rental, 100% of the rental plus security deposit is due by return before we can confirm the booking. Security deposits will be returned seven days after the end of th...

About the neighbourhood
Cowes is a wonderful town, and has many moods. Cowes Week, Little Britain and the Red Funnel event at Easter are the headline events, though there are many other sailing regattas from March to September each year.

But Cowes is more than that. It is very much the live connection to the whole island, a base from which the whole of the island can be explored and enjoyed, from Ventnor and St Catherines Point, to Bembridge, to the Needles. The Island is a place of contrast. Enjoy it all from your central base in Cowes!

Cowes itself has a wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants, to suit every taste and budget. There are excellent food and hostelry outlets, from traditional pubs to Indian, Chinese and Italian, or even take a river taxi in the summer to the Folly Inn on the Medina River near...
