In and Around Cowes, Isle of Wight
Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port with a natural and nice harbour at the mouth of the Medina river. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's great sailing events, of which the best known is Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August.
Cowes and East Cowes grew from a huddle of fishermen's shacks around two coastal forts built by Henry VIII on opposite banks of the River Medina and named after the two off-shore sandbanks or cows. The towns are linked by an old-fashioned chain ferry and have a tradition of fine ship building, dating from the reign of Elizabeth I. Then came the yacht building industry, as sailing is a very popular sport, endorsed by the royal family. In 1854, the Royal Yacht Squadron was moved into Cowes Castle, the former Tudor fort, and the name of Cowes has been synonymous with yachting ever since.
Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some great shops, good catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs. The high speed passenger catamaran service to Southampton is centrally located at Fountain Quay, where you will also find the Tourist Information Centre.
Above the High Street and overlooking the Solent is Northwood House and Park. This traditional style mansion was built in 1837 and given to the town in 1929, together with its 26 acres of grounds, which now provide public tennis courts, bowling greens, putting green and a children's play area. At the edge of the park stands St. Mary's Church, its landmark clock tower, designed by John Nash, was retained when the church was rebuilt in 1867.
East Cowes is where you will find the magnificent Osborne House, former seaside holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and preserved much as it was when the Queen died here in 1901. To commemorate the centenary of this occasion, Osborne House has special attractions in 2001. Nearby is St. Mildred's Church at Whippingham, where the royal family worshipped. Both buildings were designed by the Prince Consort.

For a 4 star rating my daughter and I were expecting something special. The caravans were badly in need of cleaning. The exteriors were covered in green algae and grass overdue for cutting. The interi… More
This park is rated a 4 star park and has been for at least 10 years, we had our grading this year on 12th September, the representative arrives unannounced and stated in his report “Sunnycott Caravan Park offers a most peaceful and tranquil location which suits its chosen market very well. A well maintained park with attentive owners”
With regard to the usage costs in the Laundry, the cost of using the washing machine is £3.00 for 180 minutes and has been for the past 9 years.
The grass does need a cut, but with the recent weather this has not been possible.
The Caravan is not an old Caravan but was purchased from new in 2005, and has been well maintained, with regard to the toilet seat there is 1 screw missing which will be replaced.
The Caravan was presented to the customer in immaculate condition as we always do. also quoted from the grading “internally of those seen present well with very good housekeeping standards noted”
There was some algae on the exterior of the Caravan which was why we were power washing it, not because we had any complaints, i asked the customer what time they were checking out and they said 10am, we certainly did not start cleaning it at 8am.
The Caravan was left covered in dog hairs despite a vacuum cleaner in the laundry for customers use and took 2 hours to clean. I would suggest that this is not the ideal site for this particular customer.

"Caravan Number 11"
We have just spent two amazing weeks on the Isle of Wight. The weather was fantastic and the island was full of things to do. The beaches were Devine and well maintained. We too were greeted very warm… More
I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay here at sunnycott, however i am disapointed that you did not let me know when you moved in that the Caravan was not clean, if you had i would of course have moved you into another Caravan, the reason i do not check that Caravan is because the owners have been cleaning it for the 2 years they have owned it and i have never had a complaint before about the standard. We always encourage customers to let us know of any problems, as without knowing, we cannot resolve the issues.
