Excellent location in such a spacious house. 7 adults and 3 children could not ask for more. communication was great from start to finish and we will definitely be back again soon.

Fantastic large house that is lovely and clean and is central to everything in Cowes. It has an impressive view of the Solent from the lounge and terraces. Ceri, the host was lovely and helpful too. Would definitely recommend a visit.
