We had a wonderful stay. Proximity to the water and walk into Cowes was lovely. Although the house was close to local shops,it was tucked away and very private,with amazing views over the water.

A very comfortable, well-equipped cottage within easy reach of all necessary facilities. The owner living nearby called in to make sure we were happy. The bonus was a view from the window of the start of the Round the Island race on the morning we left!
