About the home
Gurnard Marsh is an area on the north shore of Isle of Wight just to the west of Cowes. It is an ideal location for many different types of visitors including families, walkers and ramblers, cyclists and dinghy sailors. It has long been a popular holiday spot with rows of beach side chalets dating back to the 1920's, but now most of the old rail carriages and timber chalets have now gone. The replacement buildings are built to today's standards but designed to be in keeping with the beach side chalets they replaced.

The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is one of the most idyllic yet exciting parts of Britain. A place that seems to exert an irresistible attraction that brings visitors back time after time.
Popular from Victorian times as a holiday resort, the Isle of Wight is known for its natural beauty and as home to the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes, a town that hosts a world famous annual regatta. Colloquially, it is known as "The Island" by its residents. It possesses a rich history including its own brief status as a vassal kingdom in the fifteenth century, home to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and Queen Victoria's much loved summer residence and final home Osborne House. Its maritime history encompasses boat building and sail making through to the manufacture of flying boats and the world's first hovercraft. It is home to the Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was one of the largest rock music events ever held, with estimates reaching 600,000 attendees, overtaking the record set at Woodstock a year earlier. The Isle of Wight Festival was revived in 2002 to critical acclaim, headliners in 2006 were Coldplay, Foo Fighters and The Prodigy. The island is also one of the richest fossil locations for dinosaurs in Europe.
In AD 686, it became the last part of the British Isles to convert to Christianity, almost a century after the rest of Great Britain.
The Cowes / Gurnard area
Gurnard is on the Solent and is renowned for being one of the best sailing areas in the world. More information on local sailing can be found at the Gurnard Sailing Club and Cowes Week websites.
The Isle of Wight is renowned for its range and quality of cycling terrain. It has a network of quiet lanes and bridle ways and an ever increasing number of railway line to cycle path conversions.
There is a well signposted Round the Island road route which passes the front doors of both of our properties.
We are well equipped to cater for cyclists and their equipment and both of our properties have secure bicycle storage and water hoses in the rear gardens.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful short break in Isle of Wight as a present for her birthday. I had booked this with Carl a month before, including ferry tickets. The journey into IoW and then Seawinds was very easy and pretty quick, although good luck battling the olds getting off the ferry.
Soon on arrival at Seawinds, Carl met us to check if everything was okay; we assured him it was. This is a beautifully maintained clean and tidy accommodation half a minute away from the Solent. Inside there was everything needed for our stay, and one night my girlfriend cooked and we had a delicious and cozy night in. Also, we found the beds and furnishings very comfortable, and we would definitely stay again if/when coming back to IoW.
East Cowes is only a short drive away, where we went to Mojac's the best restaurant I've been to in years if not ever. IoW has great places to visit, but always come with a car. It was always a nice experience to arrive back at Seawinds after being out and about, especially when needing to warm up after being in the rain for most of the day.
The only problem I would say is that the bedroom blinds could be more effective, a small issue when you consider you can wake up to go on beautiful early pebbly beach walks, and possibly even walk to the beach cafe and have breakfast. A bonus with Seawinds are the lovely walks you can go on and take in some brisk fresh air with magnificent views.
I would strongly recommend this place to any couple or family. We felt we had made a great choice staying at Seawinds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Isle of Wight, and a big part of this was knowing that we had such a cosy and comfortable base to come back to each night. Seawinds had everything that we needed, and is well appointed and presented throughout.
We received excellent service, and Carl made sure that our booking, arrival and departure were all very straight-forward.
The views across the Solent are magnificent, and the restaurant just opposite the house is an excellent perk of the property's location. East Cowes is forty five pleasant minutes walk away, and heading there for a meal is a good way to spend an evening (although make sure you take a torch for the walk back!)
