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.

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 and in 2006, was renovated to the highest standards with a wonderful terrace added so that full advantage could be made of the sea views.
