The Isle of Wight region

Cowes is a splendid base for holidaying on the glorious Isle of Wight. The Island is a wonderful destination for all types of family holiday. If you are looking for an action packed holiday you will find all kinds of water sports available including windsurfing, paragliding and sailing.

If you like cycling or walking then there are numerous cycle routes and footpaths criss-crossing all over the island for you to explore.

For a more traditional British holiday experience the Isle of Wight Zoo, Black Gang Chine and Robin Hill Park are just a few of the many venues that offer a great day out for young and old alike, and of course not forgetting the glorious sandy beaches for that lovely ‘day at the seaside’ experience.

Alternatively, if it’s culture you are looking for, the island can offer a vast array of historic venues; Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, St Catherine’s Lighthouse and Brading Roman Villa being just a few. If you want to delve even further into the past the Isle of Wight Dinosaur Museum offers organised fossil hunting trips during the school holidays.

The Isle of Wight really has something for everyone.


Cowes is the Island’s main port with a natural harbour at the mouth of the Medina river. World famous for it prestigious sailing events and home to the worlds oldest regular regatta ‘Cowes Week’ and is popular with sailors and holidaymakers alike.

Cowes is split into two main areas. East Cowes consists of mainly residential properties and will be where you will arrive if you travel from Southampton via car ferry.

West Cowes is the main centre of the town and has pedestrianised High Street with a delightful array of shops, delicatessen’s, cafes, restaurants and pubs to suit most tastes.You will find all the major Island yacht clubs in West Cowes including the Royal Yacht Squadron, The Royal Corinthian and the Island Sailing Club.

The Yacht Haven is situated at one end of the town and along with Shepherds Wharf covers the majority of yacht berthing requirements in the area.

West Cowes has a large promenade which is only a short walk from the house. The prom offers spectacular views over the solent towards the mainland and is perfect for those leisurely summer evening strolls and you may even catch sight of one of the many majestic cruise liners that regularly leave Southampton docks passing close to the Cowes shoreline

Thank you for your review. The heating thermostat/timer in adjustable and full instructions are supplied in the manual left in the property. I'm sorry if you did not see this. We also have a maintenance service for which the telephone number is supplied and who will have happily come and adjusted this for you. It's a shame we didn't know that you weren't comfortable whilst you were in the house as we could have rectified this immediately. I hope it didn't spoil your stay.
