Ideally located in the vibrant maritime town of Cowes, this stylish period property makes a wonderful base for a large family, group of friends or sailing crew looking for a welcoming holiday getaway. Less than half a mile from the mouth of the River Medina, this fantastic townhouse is perfect for exploring Cowes, with plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops in the immediate area. Cowes is also home to the well respected Cowes Week, one of the longest running sailing regattas in the world. There are also two golf courses, a chain ferry and Queen Victoria’s former residence of Osborne House in the neighbouring East Cowes.

Entering this welcoming property via external steps, a striking hallway leads you through to a bright and inviting lounge. Here you will find plenty of comfortable seating, a Smart TV, wood burner and a beautiful bay window with wonderful views. Exploring further, the attractive kitchen/diner provides a stylish space for enjoying a great family meal and also features a cosy snug area with another Smart TV. There are six bedrooms: three super-king-size rooms and a single can be found on the first floor, and the second floor features a super-king-size room and a triple room which share a shower room. The first floor also has a bathroom and a separate shower room. Heading outside you can relax in the fully enclosed garden with a terrace where you can sit back and enjoy a drink or a meal. The garden also features a BBQ and table tennis.

Among the many attractions to discover in Cowes are Northwood House, St Mildred’s Church, the Sir Max Aitken Museum and the two branches of the Classic Boat Museum. The seafront is just metres away, with Cowes Harbour Shepards Marina and Cowes Yacht Haven both within half a mile. Beyond Cowes there are many attractions to explore on the Isle of Wight, including the Hamstead Heritage Coast (7 miles), the Isle of Wight Zoo (13 miles) and charming Wootton (7.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 6 bedrooms – 3 super-king-size zip-and-link (can be arranged as twin’s on request - please request at time of booking), 1 super-king-size, 1 triple with a double and a single bed and 1 single

Stroll to the nearby sea front and enjoy all that popular Cowes has to offer, from the regattas and races in summer months to the peaceful beach walks in winter that will blow the cobwebs away after a night of celebration. The vibrant town itself offers a great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants, while the port at East Cowes (9.5 miles) offers day trips back to the mainland, where you can explore Southampton (22.5 miles) or bustling Portsmouth (19.5 miles). There is plenty to see and do on the Isle of Wight itself though; history fans should take a trip to Queen Victoria's family home, Osborne House (8.5 miles), where you can revel in the opulence of the state apartments and while away an afternoon strolling through the lush gardens. Families will love visiting the UK's oldest theme park at Blackgang Chine (14 miles) – nicknamed the ‘land of imagination' – or discovering the attractions at Robin Hill Country Park (7 miles).

Outstanding! The property owners could not have been more helpful, thoughtful and trusting. The house was immaculate, couldnt be more COVID aware. The location was perfect in a lovely quiet street, parking was no problem. Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Weve made some amazing memories, thank you.

Booked this property reasonably last minute as a result of Covid restrictions, however what an inspired choice we made for a week away. Spotlessly clean, huge amounts of space, excellently equipped and high end equipment.

Five minutes walk into Cowes town centre and sea front which has a good range of eateries. Hide

This was an amazing house, beautifully presented and immaculate on arrival. The owners have providers everything one could need, from an excellent BBQ, table tennis, Alexa, ample towels and supplies, fast WiFi etc. They have thought everything though.

This is a beautiful, clean and well equipped house which was perfect for our winter weekend away. The town is a couple of minutes walk away and the car ferry at East Cowes is a short journey across the chain link ferry.

We stayed for a week with our two small children and had a fantastic time. This is a nice, modern, clean and very comfortable property. Very well appointed with a well-equipped kitchen. Two minutes walk to Cowes town centre. Parking wasnt an issue at all. Would highly recommend this property.

The house is beautiful and decorated to a very high standard. It was very well equipped and they had thought of everything. Parking can be a bit difficult on the road but we usually found a space not too far away. It is a 2 minute walk from Cowes but at the top of a small hill. Overall an excellent experience and we will definitely go again.
