Clean, well equipped, quiet cottage in great location with views across the estuary to Cowes. Lots of boating activity to watch. Minutes from the Red Funnel (car ferry) terminal, the 'floating bridge' to Cowes, and Waitrose. Easy links to the rest of the Island. We had a great time.
Beautiful cottage inside and out with stunning views over the Solent. Easy starting point to explore the island. Literally a 2 minute drive from the Red Funnel Ferry or a 10 minute walk. The house is decorated in a beautiful sea theme with very comfortable furniture. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped, a home from home. The garden faces the beach, just a stones throw away. You could spend hours just watching the boats go up and down the Solent. Osbourne house is 5 minute drive away but equally as easy to walk if you feel more energetic. Always worth a visit. We explored the island from one end to the other. The chain ferry across to Cowes and the west of the Island is a 2 minute drive, £2.60 per car or £1.50 return for a foot passenger. It only takes a couple of minutes to cross the estuary but does mean you avoid having to drive into Newport and back.
The neighbours were friendly and helpful. We visited the Lifeboat pub a few times, best to book. A lovely inside restaurant pub and outside you are looking over the East Cowes Marina. Food portions were very good and top class food.
Overall a super week, thank you Linda and Alan we will definitely be back. Helene.
My mum and I stayed here for a week's break.
The cottage was clean, bright and comfortable with a wonderful view over to Cowes and Bramble Bank where the large ships coming in and out of Southampton would turn. For better views of the shipping, the seafront was moments away.
There was off road parking.
The owners were especially welcoming and helpful.
We have just spent a lovely week at Coastguard Cottage, all very clean and very well presented.There is everything you could possibly need provided for you. Lovely views of Cowes harbour and the Solent.

Very convenient but quiet location with lovely sea views and close to the shore.Garden with both deckchairs and picnic table. parking off road for two cars
Newly renovated and decorated with a gentle seaside theme and comprehensive kitchen equipment. Stairs would be steep only if very limited mobility. Owner was there to greet us and answer any questions, give suggestions for eating and amenities on island etc
Delightful cottage and would certainly stay again..
