About this location
The Isle of Wight region
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.
Too many festivals, attractions and activities to mention them all.
Isle of Wight music festival

The images for this property are deceiving! It all looks very inviting but from a recent holiday, our family know otherwise! As for everything being in 'working order' this was not the cas… More
It was unfortunate that these guests had a few things wrong following a Cowes Week let following which things were not as we would have liked them. However as these guests admit they did their share of breaking as well for which they were not charged. Compensation was offered in the form of a reduced price further stay, this was refused. It is a shame that such small items caused a two star out of five rating, fortunately the other excellent reiews compensate for this!
