A charming cottage within 150 metres of Cowes High Street and just 1.5 miles from Gurnard Beach. This dog-friendly cottage is well-suited to small families or groups of friends keen to explore the Isle coastal and inland attractions, and features spacious living areas and a cosy rear garden.

The two-storey cottage is set back from a narrow street that winds down into the town centre. Each room has its own quirky appeal, its hard and carpeted floors adorned with colourful and characterful soft furnishings. The comfort of the inviting lounge will be hard to leave behind, while the dining room will ring with the sounds of popping corks and laughter during meals created in the neighbouring kitchen. A family bathroom stands just beyond this, the perfect place to relax after a long day out. Upstairs, two well-appointed double bedrooms promise weary travellers a restful night’s sleep. A small decked area at the front of the cottage enjoys distant harbour views and is ideal for people watching over morning coffees. The rear garden, which bathes in sunlight throughout the day, is a bolthole for BBQs.

The centre of Cowes (150 metres) is home to a range of dog- and family-friendly attractions and amenities leading guests down to the picturesque Cowes Esplanade, while Gurnard Beach (1.5 miles) welcomes dogs out of season. Watersports lovers keen to sample the Solent will find their meets well catered for, with a range of opportunities dotted along the coast. The cottage’s close proximity to the Solent also makes it a very attractive option for Cowes Week.

We absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend the cottage. Its perfect. So close to all of the shops in Cowes. A really well equipped kitchen that you can enjoy cooking in. A lovely outdoor space to soak up the sunshine with a view of the sea. Super comfy beds too. Had a wonderful week.

A lovely cottage in a fantastic location! A home from home, Jays cottage had everything we needed and the addition of a welcome basket and a bottle of wine in the fridge was a very pleasant surprise. We will definitely be staying here again.

Excellent location in Cowes. Two minute walk from many restaurants and cafes and a M&S Food Hall.
