  • A cosy cabin surrounded by woodland in Cowes
  • Beautiful wooden interior with features including a roll top bath
  • Charming mezzanine bedroom with tree-top views
Property code: 85467

A quirky cabin located in Cowes, this is a great choice for a romantic getaway or an adventurous weekend exploring the hiking trails and cycle routes on offer.

Nestled amongst the acres of beautiful grounds surrounding a grand house, this picturesque cabin is shrouded by woodland making it the perfect retreat for two. Cowes is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike, so you’ll find plenty to amuse yourselves as you explore. Across the water, East Cowes is equally as fascinating and a treat to travel to thanks to the chain ferry. After a busy day, your accommodation is a private sanctuary to unwind in with a glass of wine and a BBQ supper.

Entering via the decked terrace and stepping through the attractive exterior will reward you with a quirky wooden abode that’s been thoughtfully furnished throughout the lounge/diner and a compact yet well equipped kitchen. The futon-style sofa transforms into a spare double bed if needed, and there is a TV for evening entertainment. Embrace a sense of decadence as you treat yourself to a pamper in the generous bathroom with its roll top bath with shower over, then ascend the ladder to reach the mezzanine-level bedroom that boasts woodland views. There is an outdoor ‘Silent’ Cinema with high quality headphones and programmable mood lighting. Bring your own favourite films to watch, or use the Sky/TV channels available in the Cabin

Perhaps best known for hosting the annual regatta, the twin towns of Cowes (2.5 miles) and East Cowes are linked by a charming chain ferry and rich in history and culture. Soak up the fascinating heritage of Osborne, Queen Victoria’s favourite country residence 7.5 miles away, pop into a museum and browse one of the many galleries scattered throughout the two towns. After a long day navigating the coast and countryside, Cowes is a wonderful vantage point for watching the sun set over the Solent.

We had a lovely few days in this well-equipped, comfotable and original cabin. Jonathon was a most helpful and conscientious host and the cabin's location gave a nice feeling of privacy, while having easy access to shops and all the other attractions of the Isle of Wight. We would happily stay there again and recommend it to others.

Great cabin in an ideal location. Feels secluded but not isolated; within the cabin you're surrounded by trees, but it's only a five minute drive into town, or a short walk to the nearest bus stop. Some lovely walks nearby as well, including farms and local pubs. We spent most of our time in the cabin, our friendly and gracious hosts seemed to haveRead more thought of everything.

I absolutely fell in love with The Cabin. Everything was there that you could possibly want, it was obvious a lot of thought has gone into making the accommodation welcoming, from the package of goodies, the outdoor cinema and the interior furnishings. It is in a delightful setting. I was there for an UltraWalk and struggled to get taxis at 6am/10pRead morem for the the event but Johnathan the owner kindly stepped in to give me a lift.

This was my extended familys third time at the cabin. The children loved the loft bedroom and used it as a getaway area during the day. The cabin is surrounded by some beautiful horse chestnut and oak trees which they loved. Theres a walk trail nearby. Theres also a shop which is a short walk away on the main road. The location was very handy beingRead more situated just between Newport and Cowes. Hide

Wow! What a super little cabin. Could not be more perfect. Loved the freestanding bath, well appointed kitchen and the entertainment system. We took some bikes and were amazed that you can get all the way to the south of the island in a couple of hours. We only used the car twice in a whole week. Excellent location

Very pretty cabin in a secluded private area just south of Cowes. Compact accommodation that has absolutely everything one needs, including kitchen appliances, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a washer-dryer. The futon was very comfortable as was the loft bed. Thanks to the underfloor heating the cabin was always cosy. My family stayed here on threeRead more different occasions. Hosts Jonathon and Wendy were lovely and provided some very welcoming treats on our arrival. Would certainly recommend. Hide
