  • "Excellent property in a good position , 5 mins walk from Cowes main street with a good choice of cafes , restaurants and shops."

    The house is spacious and bright and superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Parking is on street and may take a ride round to find a space but apart from that nothing to dislike. Would definitely use again.

The property

Resting centrally in Cowes, a coastal town in the Isle of Wight is Beckford Cottage, a wonderful two-bedroom townhouse.

Enjoying sea glimpses across the marina and well-positioned near a bustling high street, dotted with eateries and shops, the property makes for a fabulous, self-catered base for four guests and one furry companion.

Park up on the roadside before entering the homely sitting room, where you can unwind in front of the woodburning stove after a day of adventure.

Head into the open-plan living space to rustle up delicious meals and to dine as a group, stylishly furnished with a range of appliances, or if you'd prefer some fresh air, opt for an alfresco affair upon the rear patio area.

As the night grows darker, head upstairs to select between a double and a twin bedroom, both benefitting from en-suites, offering convenience and privacy for your entire stay.

Awaken to explore Cowes, starting with brunch at Marsek’s Coffee House, before heading to explore the bustling marina, tour Cowes Maritime Museum, or brushing up on your local knowledge at East Cowes Heritage Centre, ahead of dining out for dinner at one of the many restaurants within walking distance.

Enjoy your proximity to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty whilst heading south, stopping off at Newport, where you can enjoy a stroll along Medina Riverside Park, tour Carisbrooke Castle, hike across Carisbrooke Water Meadows, climb up Shide Quarry, or visit the Monkey Haven - Primate Rescue Centre.

Venturing further towards Shanklin, stop off at the Amazon World Zoo, ahead of exploring Shanklin Seafront or attending one of many events on at the Shanklin Theatre; further attractions across the county worth visiting include The Needles Landmark Attraction, Tapnell Farm Park, and Ventnor Botanic Garden.

Take to the Isle of Wight with Beckford Cottage as your home-from-home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


  • Newport 5 miles
  • Ryde 12 miles
  • Shanklin 14.5 miles
  • Ventnor 15.4 miles
  • Freshwater 13 miles

The bustling port of Cowes is situated by the mouth of the river Medina, and is divided into two distinct towns, linked by the regular floating bridge chain ferry. Both communities have much to offer visitors, with West Cowes known as a world famous yachting centre, with superb facilities for all kinds of watersports, as well as being considered the cycling gateway to the island with the National Cycle Route 23 running through it. It also has a beach and a wealth of excellent restaurants, inns, and plenty of interesting niche shops; there is something for everyone with a fabulous vibe. East Cowes is best known for Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s Italian style country retreat - a tour of the sumptuous royal apartments and magnificent gardens is a must. Cowes is an ideal base for exploring the rest of the island, such as sandy beaches, lovely walking country, picturesque chines and many family attractions such as the The Needles and the Isle of Wight music festival.
