    “Disappointed”

    Loved Isle of Wight, didn't love Fleming House. Expected higher standard of cleanliness during pandemic, very dirty and tired. Thank god I took my own cleaning stuff as cleaned house from top to bottom when arrived due to covid, as the house hadn't been cleaned properly and definitely not to a standard to avoid catching covid.

    Loved Isle of Wight, didn't love Fleming House. Expected higher standard of cleanliness during pandemic, very dirty and tired. Thank god I took my own cleaning stuff as cleaned house from top to bottom when arrived due to covid, as the house hadn't been cleaned properly and definitely not to a standard to avoid catching covid. Cupboards full of crumbs and bread knife had been used for god knows what and put back on the magnetic wall thing - shouldn't have been missed by cleaners if done a proper job. Put all of the crockery etc in the dishwasher before using anything as couldn't risk it being cleaned properly. Advertise as first come first served parking - it isn't. Don't be fooled it is permit parking which stops at 5 or 6pm (if you can get a space which is unlikely) but you have to move your car again in the morning, so spent the holiday running up and down the street and back to a few streets to get car. We chose the house for parking but was a lie. Good location of house, close to shops but wouldn't stay again as have complained to sykes who we rented it off and getting no where fast and feel really let down with the huge price we were charged as they could pocket whatever due to majority of us not being able to take our foreign holidays.

The property

Fleming House is a superb traditional Victorian cottage nestled in the centre of Cowes, on the coast of the Isle of Wight.

Inside, the owner has renovated the property into a stylish and contemporary base with a lovely light decor, whilst still retaining some of its period wooden flooring.

Step into the hallway where you can leave your coats and boots before stepping into this contemporary dwelling.

The sitting room has a choice of furniture to curl up with your loved ones and unwind in front of the open fire.

During your down time, use the adjacent snug room to get some peace and quiet and catch up on some reading.

The open-plan kitchen/diner is wonderfully appointed to the rear of the cottage and has a large dining table for you to gather at the table for a delicious meal, cooked to perfection in the well-equipped kitchen.

Following the steps up to the first floor, you will discover a super-king-size, twin and family room with bunk beds and a single, each offering plenty of furnishings for storage purposes.

There is a ground-floor shower room and a first-floor family bathroom, so you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

Look forward to dining alfresco in the rear enclosed garden, or simply enjoy a refreshing beverage whilst watching the sun set on a summer evening.

Make sure you sample some of the towns traditional pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience, as well as some shops and supermarkets for picking up any last-minute essentials.

Being a seaside town, Cowes gives access to a number of opportunities for a variety of watersports, as well as some excellent beaches such as Gurnard Bay and Thorness Bay Beach where you can take a picnic and relax against the soft sands.

There are a number of museums across Cowes and East Cowes, such as The Sir Max Aitken Museum, Cowes Maritime Museum and Osbourne House, all hugely popular with tourists.

Further afield is the National Trust area of Newtown National Nature Reserve, perfect for long scenic walks and wildlife spotting, with some of the most magnificent views across the countryside.

Fleming House is the ultimate choice for a week-long break near the coast of Isle of Wight.

About the location

COWES

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.
