We moved to the Isle of Wight about 16 years ago, (from the home counties) and ran a couple of sailing clothing shops in Cowes - T&G Clothing and Murphy & Nye - for many years. We just love it here, and so do our children who were subsequently born here. The pace of life is much less hectic, there are so many lovely things to do, and you are always in reach of the sea the moment the sun comes out !

Will & Fiona Headington purchased this house in 2006

The house is a very old, quaint little seamans residence, it has probably been here for hundreds of years, judging by the sloping floors ! ( Which we have had completely underpinned during a big renovation project in 2007, don't worry !)

It really is in such a great location, right in heart of the little harbour town of Cowes, a stone's throw from the marina, a great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Our kids just love staying there, feeling they are right in the middle of all the action, yet in a safe haven !

The views over the marina and the Solent are lovely, as are the gentle seaside sounds of the masts, etc.

Hi Fiona,

We arrived at about 2pm yesterday and was really pleased with the house. It is spacious yet cosy. It has been decorated in such a way that is very relaxing. Just what we needed. The location is great and handy with Sainsburys and Co-Op so close and parking is not a problem. I will not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Its perfect! :-)


Thanks again

P. H.

We enjoyed our stay at 118 High St which met our needs. Excellently maintained and clean property. Steepness of initial staircase not suitable for elderly! but we enjoyed the experience. Excellent views across the marina which made one feel on holiday. Helped make a stressful weekend less stressed!

Relaxing family holiday

We had a simply lovely one week here. We are a family with 2 small children and this flat was an ideal base to explore the island.
The flat is in very good condition and has been refurbished to a high standard. It is so central in Cowes it is incredible. You are right in the heart of it yet when you close the door you can be in your own world.
There are good walks and cycle paths close by and the view of the boats and ferries kept my 5 year old entertained no end.
It is perfect for people who come across to the island without a car!! There is no parking attached and you have to battle to find a spot close by. Don't be put off by this though.
I think I went to all the pubs in Cowes central and got a real feel for the nautical heritage. The owners are close by if needed and I can thoroughly recommend this for a short or long break.
