  • "Lovely ' cabin' in lovely location."

    Comfortable and warm. Everything you might need inside. Would stay there again. Almost home from home ! Two minor niggles - on arrival found the toilet seat very loose and the bathroom basin plug gets stuck in the plug hole !

    Thank you for your comments which are always welcome and very helpful. Without feedback we cannot always be aware of the little issues occasionally crop up and that need fixing. We've sorted the plug and loose toilet seat. Thanks again, Simon and Ginny Property Owner

  • "Another amazing stay in Willow Cabin."

    Thank you for the milk, wine, tea and other bits you welcomed us with. They were very much appreciated after travelling. The cabin was clean, cozy, comfortable and welcoming. We loved the new rug which was very soft and cozy but didn’t shed like the previous rug. The hoover was a welcome addition and helped with cleaning. You’ve thought of everything to help make guests feel welcome and at home. If I had to provide one negative it would be that we missed the onsite shop this year, so hopefully that will reopen again soon. However we ventured into Cowes instead and found an amazing M&S food hall and small Sainsburys. Perfect!

    Sorry that the shop was closed for a few days while it was being refurbished, we weren't given any notice. It is now re-opened. However, it is only able to supply a few basic needs. If you need a full food shop there are plenty of great shops in and around Cowes. We tend to use Aldi which is just 5 minutes away, as there is a great range of very reasonably priced goods.

  • "Had a lovely stay."

    Comments already left with owners regarding future plans. The cabin was warm, clean and cosy. Beds were very comfy. Loved seeing the badgers! Location as regards to getting around the island was ideal, however, the site itself was disappointing as it is virtually abandoned and has none of the amenities listed so perhaps this needs updating. This didn't bother us however if someone specifically wanted the holiday park experience ie, swimming pool or even a shop, this could be an issue. All in all, very enjoyable stay.

  • "The beds were very comfortable."

    The functional interior furnishings all seemed relatively new and were in good condition. The whole place was clean and tidy. Our son enjoyed the bunk beds. Nice touch to arrive to a bottle of wine and milk in fridge, with coffee and tea. Lovely setting - could see red squirrels from the window. Woodland walk one minute away. Beach / seaside 20 mins walk away, at Gurnard and then lovely walk along esplanade into Cowes.

  • "We were very pleased with our stay at Willow cabin."

    We found the property on a tidy, clean and organised condition. The owners left some milk and other beverages for us in the fridge which was a nice thought. Just a small comment about the fire alarm which rang every time we were having a shower. Even though not a problem at all, just thought to mention this for awareness.

  • "It’s a lovely quite and cozy place."

    The cabin was really clean. The beds were really comfortable. We loved to hear birds singing every morning. We saw a little squirrel in the yard. It was an excellent choice. Thanks Ginny.

  • "We just loved willow cabin."

    Furnishings were lovely. It was absolutely spotlessly clean. The first thing that hits you when you walk in is it smells beautiful. What it is I don't know but to come home and smell my home like that would be lovely. Considering my husband didn't want to go and now we're talking about going back. The Isle of Wight was beautiful.

    We loved Willow Cabin. Our son particularly loved the bunk bed in his room. The mattress on the double bed was super comfy. The shower was perfect. The facilities in the cabin were excellent. We had no problems parking. We saw some badgers. The welcome pack upon arrival was a lovely touch. The location was perfect for exploring the Island. Our son is insisting we have exactly the same holiday next year. Thank you Willow Cabin.

The property

Located on the outskirts of Cowes, a bustling seaport town in the Isle of Wight, rests this lovely single-storey cottage, Willow Cabin.

Perfectly located for relaxing and adventurous trips alike, Willow Cabin sleeps five guests and is ideal for a break away with friends.

Pulling up to the property you will be welcomed by off-road parking for one car, enveloped by the nearby woodlands.

A peaceful haven for wildlife, there is a woodland walk 50m away, with red squirrels regularly seen at the front door and badgers often come to the grassy area by the willow trees in the evenings, there are also ducks, cuckoos, woodpeckers and numerous songbirds.

Heading inside, you'll arrive at the open-plan living space, where you will find everything that you need to ease your stay, to catch-up as a group, and to enjoy a home-away-from-home; dine in and take in the beautiful views across manicured lawns and Willow trees to the woodland walk from the large window, then delve into all the attractions that the Isle of Wight has to offer.

For peace and tranquillity, step outside, onto the private decked area, and soak in your surroundings whilst listening to the nearby wildlife.

As the night unfolds, retreat to the two ground-floor bedrooms, well-presented and inviting, along with a ground-floor main bathroom, setting you up for your impending plans, whether that's a local hike or a visit to a popular hotspot; choose between a double and a bunk room, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for the whole party.

Within walking distance of the cottage there are a wealth of amenities to make use of and an array of attractions to experience, from local supermarkets and taverns, including The Woodvale Inn, to cycling trails and lively seaside ports.

On-site at Gurnard Pines where you’ll find tennis courts, a large gym facility with various classes, Yoga, Pilates, Les Milles etc.

Nearby in Cowes there are numerous shops where you can pick up your essentials.

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.
