About the property

Carlton Cottage is a stunning chalet property located on the seafront in West Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, a short walk from Cowes town centre and Gurnard, and close to the main ferry and hovercraft ports.

This excellent property benefits from gorgeous sea views across the Solent, towards Calshot and Portsmouth, and provides high-quality accommodation for families of up to seven in this popular area of the Isle of Wight.

On the ground floor, there's a lovely open plan living area with a dining area for six and a sitting room with comfy sofas and chairs.

The stunning kitchen, with its granite worktops, is fantastically equipped, and there's a breakfast bar with five stools.

A door leads out to the back garden, plus there's a utility room off the kitchen and a ground floor WC and shower room.

Two of the three double bedrooms are located on the ground floor.

The king size master bedroom is at the front and benefits from sea views and patio doors onto the garden.

A twin bedded room is located to the rear, with doors opening onto the back patio.

There's another large modern shower room too.

Carpeted stairs lead up to a huge room with super king size bed.

Quaint sloping ceilings boast Velux windows with sea views.

There’s also a sofa bed, chair and TV – a perfect cosy retreat.

With a large garden and patio at the front, plus a south facing back garden with barbecue, there are plenty of places to sit and relax.

Take a short walk into Cowes' Victorian town centre and you'll find shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.

Sailing fans are well catered for, with the Island Sailing Club and Cowes Yacht Haven.

Gurnard, with its popular beach, is also nearby, so you can spend relaxing days enjoying beach life.

Visit Osborne House, with its Royal connections, in nearby East Cowes, or head on around the coast to Ryde and Bembridge Harbour.

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.
