The Isle of Wight region
Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port with a natural harbour at the mouth of the Medina river. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, of which the best known is Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August.
Steeped in history with 60 miles of stunning unspoilt scenery and a wealth of attractions, the Isle of Wight has something for everyone. From historic sites to natural delights, music festivals and major national events, it is a unique holiday destination.
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 became a 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 excellent shops, many 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. Above the High Street and overlooking the Solent is Northwood House and Park. This classical 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. Nearby is St. Mildred's Church at Whippingham, where the royal family worshipped. Both buildings were designed by the Prince Consort.

"An amazing luxury penthouse with first class facilities and incredible views!"
We had the privilege of staying at this luxury penthouse over the Christmas period! The penthouse is just as advertised…with first class facilities and incredible views! The penthouse was decorated for the festive period and it was home from home. Sharon and Ged provided excellent customer service from beginning to end. What a great find!

Well furnished, warm and with great views of the harbour, i'd recommend this as a great place to stay. Fast wi-fi also.
Overall - excellent!

"An excellent apartment"
We had a great stay here.We have stayed on the Island many times before and this is the best apartment we've stayed in. The location is perfect with views across the harbour, and the interior is very well furnished with good facilities.

"A fabulous clean, spacious, modern apartment, in an excellent location, with superb views over the Solent."
We were greeted by the friendly housekeeper who showed us round, with some nice provisions in the kitchen to settle in with.
Our 2 young children had a wonderful time in it, plenty of room to play. The top floor meant we had fantastic views over the Solent from the (child-friendly) balconies, watching the boats (and our Red Funnel ferry) come and go. So able to sit back and relax.
Having all the Sky Movies and Sky Sports channels available was a nice bonus, and free wi-fi.
Excellent location, just 5 minutes walk to Cowes High Street with a handful of coffee shops and some good (but often pricey) restaurants.
Secure parking for the car in gated parking area.
Could not have asked for more.
Then a fabulous week driving round the island visiting the attractions. Although, other than the beaches, its just a shame all the 'main' attractions are so expensive! They know they have a captive audience.
