Because of its remote location, set in its private garden, the property is run on LPG for cooking . We have solar for lighting,and a mini wind turbine! The main bedroom, has a double bed with lovely comfy memory foam mattress, a shower and hand basin and an en suite toilet with wash hand basin. There is also a sofa bed which will sleep 2, and a lounge/diner at the front where you can eat with a view! .... Its very quirky but very comfortable, quite a gem!
|Further details outdoors|
Outside there is a large lawned garden, where a tent could be put up for the children if you wish, a barbecue and patio table and chairs. A gated parking space where if you want to bring a jet-ski it can also be parked with your car, its right by the property. To launch the jet-ski is a 5 min walk down a gravel path to the sea, or you can take the car and trailer actually on the beach to launch.
The Beach Retreat is located in Cowes, home to the famous Cowes Week sailing regatta. There are lovely walks surrounding the property, the coastal walk is particualrly stunning.
