Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cowes - Middleton Cottage

GREAT EASTER WEEK DEAL !

Come and stay in this beautifully refurbished period terraced house, moments from the town centre and the sailing marinas. The photo's don't do justice to this lovely house. The comfortable and contemporary property is over 3 floors, completely refurbished with an open plan ground floor, contemporary bathroom with shower and a small, private, decked garden and dedicated parking.

There are 2 bedrooms, the first with a double bed and the second with single bunk beds plus another single bed, therefore sleeping five with comfort. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom luxurious. An open plan ground floor means you can all be together for meal times and relaxing in the evening. The courtyard garden has a table and chairs and room to barbeque. It is private and gets the sun in the afternoon. PARKING AND WIFI AVAILABLE. CAR PARK sufficient for standard cars but a bit tight for people carriers/4x4's/caravenettes

The House: You will love this period terraced house, built in 1900 probably for workers in the boat building trade. It has been beautifully refurbished and is completely contemporary but retains period charm.

The kitchen is new and has washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, gas hob and electric oven. The open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area has a table with chairs for four (plus two stools to seat 6), and a comfortable seating area. We also have a Mothercare travel cot available.

The bathroom is also new, contemporary and a good size with a shower over the bath and heated towel rail.

The ground floor is laminate flooring (we would appreciate shoes being taken off when you come in to preserve the lovely floor!) and it is carpeted on the other two floors.

The house has gas central heating for cosy off season holidays. The garden is small but private and sunny. It has a table and chairs and room to barbeque. DEDICATED OFF STREET PARKING. (but nothing longer than a Ford Mondeo Estate)

THE TOWN - Cowes is a dear little town, full of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. A lot of it is pedestrianised so makes for a pleasant stroll. The sailing marinas are really close and are obviously very busy in the summer. Out of season it is quieter of course but Cowes makes a good base to explore the island, walking, cycling, in the car or bus. There is a pleasant, level walk along the seafront from Cowes to Gurnard which takes just over half an hour. Gurnard is a much smaller sailing centre with a pub, cafe and children's play area. Car and bicycle hire are available in Cowes.

Many of the bars, restaurants, cafes have views over the water.

There are several Italian and Indian restaurants as well as some more traditional English outlets. All the pubs serve good food too. There are two fish and chip shops and several tea rooms.

Places to visit: Rosemary Vineyard (Ryde), Alverstone Walk - Easy access ramble (near Sandown), Brading Roman Villa (Brading), Superbowl (Ryde), Dinosaur Interactive Museum (Sandown), Isle of Wight Zoo (Sandown), Steam Railway (Ryde), Owl and Monkey Haven (Newport), Shared Earth Fair Trade Retailer (New Church).

THE ISLE OF WIGHT: There is so much to do on the Isle of Wight. There are water sports of all sorts all around 60 miles of coastline. Coves, sandy bays, beaches for families, surfers, sailors and sunbathers.

Lots of family activities, including tennis, golf, parascending, walking, fishing, windsurfing and picnicing as well as all the tourist attractions, ie. Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill ,Osborne House, Dinosaur Isle, Botanic Gardens, model village, steam railway. The I W tourist website is crammed with ideas.

For a quiet holiday the walks along the coast and inland are wonderful with bridle paths all over the island. After which you can stop off at a pub or cafe for lunch. Inland there are farms to visit including the now famous garlic farm! There are 6 golf courses, including one in Cowes, plus horse riding, cycling, walking, crabbing and rock pooling for the activist and cafes, pubs, restaurants, for the more sedentary!

The best surfing beaches are Compton Bay, Freshwater, Niton and Shanklin

About Miss susan picano

We are a family that loves the Isle of Wight. We live in London but feel like we have come home when we step off the Red Jet and into lovely Cowes.

Miss susan picano purchased this house in 2009

Why Miss susan picano chose Cowes

Cowes has a great buzz but is still restful and easy to be in. Full of great shops, cafes and restaurants but with a small town feel. Cowes has its own vibe, unlike anywhere else on the island. So convenient for travel around the Island, for walking, cycling, bus or car. The house is comfortable, light, contemporary, central, convenient and altogether delightful. What else could we want?

What makes this house unique

We love this period property which still has some old world charm but is completely contemporary and convenient. The house has a black and white theme and is simple and clean. The little garden is private and big enough to sit and have breakfast in or take in some sun in the afternoon or enjoy a barbeque in the evening. Although in a quiet mews, we are (literally) less than a minute from Cowes centre.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic holiday home in beautiful Cowes

  • 5 of 5

This property provides a fantastic holiday base in beautiful cowes, located in a quite mews but just minutes from the high street. The propert is set over three floors is exceptionally well maintained and very clean throughout. A lot of though has gone into the property with flush fitting cupboards, a delightful decked patio and a large family bathroom and a very well equipped kitchen. The kitchen is open plan making a very informal atmosphere for eating and relaxing. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The extras in this property really make it: games, dvds, bbq, dish washer, washing machine, the owners are obviously very proud of this property and enusre that it is welcoming when you arrive. The town of Cowes is safe and relaxed with a good mix of shops and supermarkets, however if you don't want to cook I recommend the Italian on the hill and the fist and chip shop - fantastic. This holiday home makes a great location for exploring the Island hiring a cyle (the local hire shop is very knowledgable) is an exhilarating way of getting around - beware the Island is rather hilly ! There are numerous beaches to explore, a surf lesson is family fun day out as Osbourne House. I fully recommed this proptery for an ideal family holiday get away.

Perfect spot to explore the Isle of Wight

  • 5 of 5

I don't really want to say what we thought about this property for fear that it may be booked out in future ;)

We were incredibly impressed by the property. We had brought a lot of cooking equipment with us as we're both a bit 'foodie' with our time off, and most of it never left the box as the house was so well equipped. We didn't lack for anything. From a touristy perspective, there was a huge supply of information in terms of fliers and a book of hints and tips left by previous residents. The property is extremely well located for popping out to the shops, and the co-op next door has the best croissants ever. Having a dedicated parking spot was wonderful, and everything in the house was to the highest standard. We loved all the hidden doors/cupboard and space saving strategies. Just really clever. It rained all but three days that we were on the Island, so we never used the back patio, but imagine it would be beautiful in the summer months. The children were well catered for in the bunk beds room. They spent hours playing there, and building forts out of the ample supply of sheets.

If Susan would have us back, we'd definitely love to spend another month at Middleton Cottage.

Lovely cottage, central location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a very central location in Cowes convenient for the shops, seafront and fast ferry. The cottage is very comfortable throughout and highly recommended.

Possible drawbacks are that the stairs are quite steep, which may be a problem for some people, and that noise from nearby pubs went on very late on Friday night.

Very relaxing holiday, good value

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very enjoyable week at Middleton Cottage in Cowes. It is a cosy terraced house, light and airy and is exactly as described on the website. It is located in a quiet pedestrian alleyway, very close to the centre of Cowes but tucked away in a quiet residential area.

There is a good sized Co-op supermarket just behind the cottage, open 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sunday. There is a post office at the rear of the Co-op and a cash-point at the front. The No 1 bus for Newport stops at the front. We took our car but the bus service was so good we travelled round the island by bus and used an ordinance survey map to walk to any areas not directly on the bus route. The cottage is within easy access of the Red Jet Hi Speed ferry terminal in West Cowes so a car is not essential.

There are plenty of places to eat in Cowes and also the usual range of takeaways. The Food Hamper at Cowes High Street (116) offers a good range of ‘home cooked’ frozen meals, sandwiches, quiches and homemade pies etc. at fairly competitive prices.

We had a very relaxing holiday and hope to return again at some time in the future.

The delightful town of Cowes is, of course, most famous for its sailing events and races; Cowes Week being the most well known. The town has cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops within minutes. 9 hole golf course in Cowes. Sainsbury's and Coop moments away. Lovely gift and clothes shops. Walk along the sea front, watch the boats then take the level walk along the sea front to Gurnard for lunch. The town centre is pedestrianised for a pleasant and safe stroll. Try the new artisan bakers where you help yourself to breakfast. Red Jet hi speed passenger service 2 minutes away & the chain link ferry, linking Cowes with the Red Funnel Steamer a short drive. Access to the island can also be made via the ferry from Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth. Newport, the main town is a 10 minute drive away with buses every 10 minutes. WiFi & DEDICATED OFF STREET PARKING. Local Bicycle & Car hire.

Beaches aplenty and walks for all energy levels then home to this lovely period house.

Golf: There are 8 GOLF COURSES on the Island, including one in Cowes. A lovely opportunity to get away for a few days' golf! As well as the one in Cowes they are located in: East Cowes (in the grounds of Osborne House, beautiful setting), Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Ventnor, Westridge and Freshwater Bay. Some of the golf courses are in parts of outstanding natural beauty.

Notes:
Middleton Terrace is a quiet pedestrianised mews. Cowes centre is one street away with all its shops and facilities. The property is on 3 floors so has 2 flights of stairs. The twin bedroom is next to the bathroom. The property is well arranged for living, relaxing, sleeping and cooking. The sunny garden is small but big enough to eat outside and barbeque. The open plan ground floor means everyone can be together in the evening and whoever is cooking dinner is not on their own! DEDICATED PARKING moments from the house. (The parking space is large enough for a standard car but not for 4x4's or caravanettes). WALKING, CYCLING, GOLF, WATERSPORTS all local. Bike and car hire available in Cowes. The house is lovely to come back to at the end of a day's exploring, sailing, walking, bike riding or golf. There are many local pubs and restaurants and all are great for a visit in the evening and just a stroll away. The Coop, moments away does the best Croissants in Cowes and opens at 7.30am
