Location description from owner
The England 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.

“Excellent place to stay loved it”
Well worth the money.... We have recommend this to our family and friends. if you have small children some of the fine ornements are only to be looked at.... The large outside area is lovly in the sunshine.
“Beautiful, beautiful apartment”
Everything about this apartment is just beautiful – my second visit and the wow factor still hit me when we arrived. Love this place.
“Wonderful apartment - we're planning next year already”
There were four adults in the group that stayed in the apartment and we found that there was more than enough room for all of us. The beds were comfortable and the living space was amazing. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and other aparatus, so cooking was a joy. The living space was split into a dining table and sofa area, which meant we could have a change of scenery when we were indoors. The view itself was superb - so nice to watch the boats coming and going (from inside and also from the two seating areas on the balcony). Only downside - the car ferry port is fairly close, so it was outside the window pretty regularly. But, that didn't interrupt our stay at all and is a very, very, very minor downside. Cowes itself had enough pubs and restaurants for our needs. We went for a holiday indoors, so weren't concerned by what else was in the area. If you sail you'll be fine. If you have a car you'll be fine, but I can't guarantee what you'll get to using public transport.
“Relax in luxury enjoy the IOW”
If you want to stay in luxury with great views and easy access to Cowes town and good restaurants then look no further. Great, well equipped apartment overlooking the marina. Sunny balcony for breakfast, lovely terrace for lunch and evening drinks. Overall great amount of space and private. Safe car parking and safe apartment. Met by the housekeeper who showed us everything. Left us with a bottle of wine to enjoy which was a lovely touch along with fresh flowers in the hall. Great base for exploring the island and a welcome place to return to for chilling out and relaxing. We'll be returning again.
“A beautiful apartment, immaculately presented.”
I stayed for 3 nights with my husband and two friends. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and immaculately presented. It boasts stunning views over Cowes & Shepard Marinas and on to the Solent. Everything about the apartment is first class. It was a joy to stay there.
Beautiful apartment, very spacious and well located. We would use is again. The balcony and view of the Solent is excellent

“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!
The apartment overlooks Cowe's Marina , loads of boat activity to watch, including cruise ships The large apartment is beautifully set out , everything in it you could wish for & all to a very high standard More than helpful housekeeper who keeps the apartment very clean & tidy. Secure parking within the complex We would return
Met by a very nice lady who showed us around the beautiful appt, including free wine & chocolates for us! 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!
