This area is known for its strong links to the sailing community and there are many events to enjoy throughout the summer months. Cowes, which is just a short walk or drive (via the floating bridge), is home to Cowes Week, one of the longest-running sailing regattas in the world and this gorgeous house is the perfect base for both crew and spectators alike.
