The property

A delightful mid-terrace cottage nestled on a quaint street in Cowes, Rose Cottage is a wonderful getaway to this beautiful seaport town on the Isle of Wight.

Ideal for families or two couples, Rose Cottage boasts two bedrooms, and enjoys excellent features such as an enclosed garden and a utility room.

Park up on the street for free and step inside this home-from-home on the Isle of Wight, entering into the charming sitting room, furnished with a sofa bed to accommodate flexible sleeping arrangements, an armchair and a TV with Freeview.

Pass the original fireplace, now painted over but still adding character to the cottage, which dates back to the mid-1800s, before heading into the kitchen/diner.

Discover a fresh and bright setting within the kitchen/diner, with a sleek glass dining table and soft grey chairs to gather at, alongside all you need to cook up your favourite dishes, including a gas oven and hob, and a fridge/freezer.

Take two steps up into the utility to find the handy washing machine, before taking another two steps up into the ground-floor bathroom, home to a bath and overhead shower.

Delight in spending time out in your own private and enclosed garden, with seating for enjoying the sun on summer days, and bike storage near to the rear gate, perfect for leaving and entering on bike rides.

Access the first floor via staircase, taking care to hold the handrail as the property's age means they are a little steeper than normal, and come upon the master bedroom to the left.

Settle down in this lovely bedroom boasting a king-size bed, with a window overlooking the pretty street below, while the second bedroom has two 2'6" single beds, with a cloakroom situated on this floor for added convenience.

Begin exploring the town on foot, taking a stroll down to the waterfront to admire the bobbing boats and views of The Solent, before choosing one of the many cafés or restaurants to dine in or browsing the local shops.

Cowes is home to several marinas and harbours as is the whole of the Isle of Wight and a walk visiting each of these boat parking spots makes a pleasant outing.

Pay a visit to The Sir Max Aitken Museum housed in an 18th century sailmaker's loft, home to a collection of historical and nautical artefacts, and the Cowes Maritime Museum, detailing the history of shipbuilding and sailing.

Enjoy a day out to Osborne House, Queen Victoria's cherished residence on the Isle of Wight and it's not hard to see why; this Italian-inspired mansion sits amid luscious gardens and is filled with Victoria and Albert's former things, you can even find her 'bathing machine' by the shorefront!

If you are visiting during Cowes Week, then you are in for a treat as this town transforms into a yachting paradise, with Cowes being the start point for the Round the Island Race, and lots of entertainment to be found on and off shore.

The greatest benefit of holidaying on this picturesque island is that everything is just a simple car journey away; the Isle of Wight's southern shores, including Ventnor Beach and Shanklin Beach, are both well under an hour's drive from Rose Cottage allowing you to explore endlessly.

Other popular attractions include The Needles, Butterfly World, Carisbrooke Castle, Monkey Haven, and Goodleaf Tree Climbing.

Enjoy a fun-filled stay on the Isle of Wight at Rose Cottage.

About the location

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.
