It is very convenient to Cowes where we went for dinner and brunch. Aneasy drive to the Nobbies. The owners sent us very clear instructions by email as to how to access the room. There seem to be both summer and winter features.

An absolutely adorable cottage that has everything you need for a short or long stay. The owners sent me a text and email shortly after booking confirmation with details of how to find the property and check in info which was helpful. Great location just a short drive from Coles and the local town and beach. I would highly recommend this place - wish we could have stayed longer!

Our cottage was clean and comfortable, tucked away on the bushy property. The atmosphere was peaceful, surrounded by birds and other wildlife. The big tub in the bathroom was lovely, as was the large shower head. It is very close to Cowes town centre and the beaches.
