Fleming House is a superb traditional Victorian cottage nestled in the centre of Cowes, and is an ideal base for a family looking for a getaway to the coast on the Isle of Wight.

Renovated to a high standard, this delightful abode offers a stylish and contemporary base with a lovely light decor, whilst still retaining some of its period wooden flooring.

Be welcomed into a sitting area with pretty bay windows and a characterful open fire to warm your feet beside as you plan the day ahead of you, and there is also the option of a quieter snug, ideal for catching up on a good book.

When mealtimes call, head over to the kitchen/diner, a contemporary space with ample amenities to cater to your culinary needs, and a large dining table where guests can indulge in a hearty meal, complemented by a glass of fizz.

From here, access the rear garden through the patio doors and dine alfresco in the sunshine as you reflect on the day’s adventures.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the sleek, ground-floor shower room, before making your way upstairs to cosy down for the night in one of the three bedrooms.

Choose between a super-king-size with delightful furnishings and storage, a twin, and a twin room with bunk and single bed, and there is also a bathroom on this floor.

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.
