Close to the famous sailing centre of Cowes, this lovely property offers stunning sea views and is perfect for relaxing on the terrace and watching the boats and cruise liners in the Solent.

This delightful property is attractively situated in a tranquil close which is just a short walk from the lovely quiet beach of Gurnard, where you can enjoy swimming, paddling and boating, as well as relaxing in the local pub and pleasant cafe. An easy stroll beside the sea will take you into the heart of the vibrant and popular sailing town of Cowes with its small shops and range of good restaurants. The sea at Egypt Point is just a stroll away, and Osborne House, the former island home of Queen Victoria is also nearby. Other delightful towns include Yarmouth and Ryde, or you could explore the estuary at Wootton, an important area for bird and wildlife.

On entering this lovely single-level cottage you will find yourself in the spacious and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Tastefully furnished, with comfy seating, 32 inch smart TV and radio/CD/iPod dock, the attractive lounge is an ideal space to relax in. Patio doors lead out onto the terrace.

Stepping outside you will find a large garden with an area of decking with garden furniture so you can enjoy a meal al fresco. From the terrace you can unwind while watching the sailing boats and sea craft. A copy of the movements of cruise liners is usually left in the cottage as the ships can offer an added interest as they travel across the Solent after leaving Southampton.

Had an excellent stay. The property is in an excellent location, just a couple of minutes drive from the seafront and a 20 minute walk into Cowes, from where the floating bridge takes you across to East Cowes. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and loved the view across the Solent when you walk into the property. If the weather had been warmer Read morewe would have spent more time on the decking looking at this and the lovely garden but had to postpone until later in year due to first lockdown.. Hide

The cottage was very comfortable, cosy and warm and perfect for a couple, it was very clean and had been Covid prepared so that you felt safe. Providing tea and coffee together with milk and biscuits was a very nice touch.

We would definitely use this cottage again if we are fortunate enough to return to the island. Hide

Our very first holiday in self catering accommodation; we were very impressed. There was nothing missing from kitchen equipment and utensils, perfect. In an ideal location and nice to be able to see the Solent from the window. Would definitely holiday there again.

The cottage is spacious, with comfortable seating and beds The kitchen area is very well equiped, though rather small. The sizeable bathroom is immaculate and the whole place very clean. Outside there is a decking area with seating, a table and views of the owners' lovely garden which they are happy to share. The Solent in the distance completes a Read morerestful view. Hide

Easy access, nice and quiet, lovely garden, views of the Solent although not expansive were fine. Easy to park a car , walking distance to West Cowes although a steep section to negotiate. Friendly hosts who were available if needed..
