This beautifully appointed holiday cottage, right on the waterfront looking out across to West Cowes and the Solent, combines the heritage of the coastguard’s traditional cottages with modern architectural design, offering bright and airy high vaulted ceilings with modern comforts. The property is 20 yards from a public slipway, so if guests had a small boat, this could be stored at the property and launched via the slipway straight out into the Solent. The Boat House accommodation is one of a pair, all on the ground floor and there are lovely walks along the esplanade just outside the property. There is a park nearby with children’s play area. Island attractions include The Needles, with chair lift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK is nearby, and other attractions include Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight Pearl, Dinosaur Isle, a donkey sanctuary and Calbourne Water Mill, which has a 17th-century working watermill. Osborne House and Gardens (Queen Victoria’s holiday residence), Carisbrooke Castle and the sailing town of Yarmouth are worthy of a visit. Cowes in the north west of the island is renowned for its sailing. Also within easy reach are vineyards and quaint villages, some with thatched roofs such as Godshill, Old Shanklin and Brighstone. Outdoor pursuits include scenic walking, riding, fishing, cycling, water sports and golf. The island can be explored from the open-top buses that stop regularly at various collection points. Beach 400 yards. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

Large beamed open-plan living room with vaulted ceilings/kitchen with dining area, tiled floor and two sets of French doors leading out onto the lawned garden with waterside views. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Twin bedroom. Shower room with double shower cubicle and toilet.

    Excellent. Loved the accommodation. Old & historic building but modern & contemporary on the inside. Very comfortable and had all we needed to thoroughly enjoy a short break. Lovely little garden at the front that Murphy the dog loved. & a lovely walk just outside on the Esplanade - he loved again. We'll be back! Thank You Barbara.
