This property is an ideal holiday home for a couple or a single traveller. It is located within an easy walk into Cowes. Public transport is excellent and nearly all of the Island's attractions can be reached by the regular bus services.

A second visit for us to Little Dormers and, again, we had a great time. Superbly located in a quiet residential area. An easy 20 minute walk into Cowes to relax or catch buses to most parts of the island, or cross to East Cowes on whichever ferry is running for more buses out to Ryde (to pick up the Ryde to Shanklin train).

Property was light and airy, God sized rooms. Beds very comfortable, plenty of wardrobe space! Bathroom was a generous size with a good shower. Lounge area quite adequate with decking overlooking a very maintained garden. Enjoyed seeing the Red squirrels. The owners very kindly got washing in for us as it rained one day.
