    The accomodation is clean and nice and the landlady adorable but the staircase is very steep for elderly people and there is no car park

    Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed exploring the Isle of Wight. Property Owner

  • "This property is like a home from home."

    Everything you need clean comfortable. For older people the stairs are a bit steep but manageable and parking is a bit hit and miss no the owners fault. A lovely stay hopefully will be back.

    Thank you for your comment. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry that you found the stairs a bit steep we hope that the handrail helped. Yes it is free on street parking open to anyone, we try and help as much as we can. We will hopefully see you again sometime. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little house, very bright and clean."

    Very comfortable and a nice welcome from the owner, who was flexible about arrival times. Also very good communication. The only downside was that it was very difficult to park near the house.

    Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay at Seagulls Perch."

    Exceptionally clean and really cosy. The owner has thought about the personal touches to make it a home from home. It was a fantastic base to explore the whole island and only a 5 minute walk into Cowes for great restaurants and shops. As a family we would recommend.

    Thank you for your comments and recommendations. So glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

The property

Resting at the heart of the bustling seaside town of Cowes, Isle of Wight, lies this delightful, two-bedroom holiday home, Seagull's Perch.

Perfect for families, this charming property enjoys fantastic positioning to nearby amenities, well-presented living areas, providing everything you and your loved ones will need for a relaxing, self-catered getaway.

The property is conveniently situated a short walk from the ferry terminal and there is a bus stop just a few doors down with a regular bus service to Newport and beyond so you could leave the car at home.

Inside, be sure to make full-use of the well-equipped galley-style kitchen, where the chef of choice can take residence to cook up delicious, home-cooked meals for the whole family to be savoured in the tasteful dining room, complete with a quaint decorative fireplace, or perhaps in the plush sitting room, where the whole group can gather in the evenings to enjoy a film or two on the wall-mounted Smart TV.

As night falls, treat yourself to a long, indulgent bath before retreating to one of two inviting bedrooms, both lie waiting to transport you to a night of tranquil bliss.

In the morning, enjoy a hot cup of coffee on the rear decking before stepping out into Cowes to explore the local area.

Stock up on essentials at Rashley's convenience store, stop for a quick pint at The Anchor, or book a table for four at the Harbour Kitchen if you fancy being relieved of cooking duty for one evening.

If you want to see more of the island, take the short car trip to Ryde, a fellow seaside town where the attractions of Appley Park and Appley Tower can be found, as well as the lush sands of Ryde Beach.

Shanklin is also accessible by car, a quaintly-decorated coastal settlement with Shanklin Beach and the Pirates Cove & Jurassic Bay Adventure Golf providing all the activity required for a fun-filled, family day out!

Whisk your loved ones away for a trip to remember by booking Seagull's Perch.

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.
