Bungalow | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
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.
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.
