Little Dormers is the wing of an impressive detached property with a large garden. It is attractively situated in a quiet close with spectacular sea views and is within a 12-minute walk of the peaceful beach at Gurnard where swimming, paddling and boating can be enjoyed. Here there is also a public house and a pleasant cafe providing refreshments. The sea at Egypt Point is within an eight-minute walk of Little Dormers, and an easy 20-minute stroll beside the sea takes you into the centre of Cowes - a small town famous as a sailing centre, with narrow streets, shops and several restaurants. By car, there is easy access to the west side of the Island with its sandy coves and downland walks. A few minutes drive combined with taking the floating bridge to east Cowes, leads to Osborne House, the former island home of Queen Victoria.

Little Dormers is completely self-contained, presented to the highest standards and has a wonderful terrace so that full advantage can be made of the sea views. Visitors can relax whilst watching a variety of 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. Little Dormers provides attractive and comfortable accommodation for two people which is all on one level. It is centrally heated and has been furnished and equipped to a high standard.

There is a large open plan living room with patio doors opening on to the terrace. This delightful room is furnished with comfortable armchairs and a 32 inch smart television. There is a pleasant dining area and a well equipped kitchen with beech style units, a granite effect worktop, an electric cooker and ceramic hob, microwave and refrigerator. Visitors also have access to a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

There is an attractive twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room with a power shower, basin and WC. A travel cot and high chair can be provided for babies under 12 months. WiFi internet is available at this cottage. Little Dormers has an area of decking with garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed outside, and visitors are welcome to wander through the beautiful larger open plan garden of the cottage. A car can be parked in the drive close to the property entrance. There is a bus service and shop within a 15 minutes walk.

Little Dormers is a clean comfortable well equipped quiet holiday accommodation with a nice decked patio & garden shared with the owners next door. A 7/8 minute walk or 2minute drive down a steep hill to the sea front of West Cowes. Just a 5minute drive to the chain ferry to cross to East Cowes. Use of the washing machine & dryer an absolute bonus

Little Dormers is an excellent property. Clean, comfortable and with everything we needed. A beautiful garden with plenty of red squirrel sightings too!

It is ideally situated for seeing the island with Cowes only a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk away and is in a peaceful location for rest days! Hide

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). You really don't need tRead moreo use a car at all (We didn't). Lovely hosts, very friendly, inqusitive Red Squirrels pop up onto the decking everyday. A lovely place to stay. Hide

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.
