We are continually decorating & upgrading the property to make our guests stay more enjoyable. We have recently upgraded the family and en-suite bathrooms and created greater ambiance with our new coffee lounge, breakfast room/conservatory and dining room inc 12' wide doors to make the conservatory a feature of the house. A new larger conservatory was installed in 2016. Our kitchen is large & well fitted with granite work surfaces & fitted with 5 burner gas hob. Food preparation is made easy for large family cooking with comprehensive kitchen facilities & equipment. A large open plan coffee area (seating for 6+) adjoins the kitchen separated by a large breakfast bar. This area leads through to the large SW facing conservatory giving an open light & spacious downstairs area. Cooks therefore never need to feel cut off from the rest of the group! To further enhance your stay there is a large utility area 4.8m long comprising CH boiler, washing machines, tumble drier & large drying area.

Characterful, spacious and homely property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week long stay at Green Bank. The house has plenty of space, everything you could ask for in the kitchen, lots of dining space even if everyone is sitting down together. Lots of bathrooms, comfortable beds, close to walk to shops, restaurants and pubs, great for an evening stroll. The hot tub is divine, rain or shine. Definitely a great location for seeing all that the island has to offer. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Spacious well equipped property in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of two families and nine people aged from 15 to 63. The property had plenty of space for all of us with lots of bathrooms/en suites. We particularly liked eating in the conservatory area which was bright and sunny. The audio visual entertainment equipment was great with fast Wi-Fi as well.

It was only a five minute walk to the shops and a few more minutes to the seafront. We kept our bikes safely in the utility room and did a couple of long bike rides from the house on the Round the Island bike route and the traffic free routes through Newport.

The owner and his agent were very responsive to our queries. A problem with one of the showers was fixed within the hour! Recommended property.

Lovely house, lovely hot tub!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week, with family and friends to celebrate "a special birthday". The house was spacious and the beds comfy and every amenity and appliance to make you feel at home. We stayed towards the end of March, and did have the opportunity to use the hot tub, which was great. The house is conveniently located for West Cowes, but a bit of a climb up a steep hill, but it kept us fit, and we were fortunate to see the tree shown in the picture in all its glory, stunning.

absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Green Bank for the New Years celebrations - and we absolutely loved it.

It had all you need to get ready for the celebrations and i was even all decorated nicely with beautiful tinsel and other Christmas decorations.

House was all ready for us whenever we arrived - we could freshen up immediately as the owners kindly have supplied coffee and milk for us.

I would highly recommend the place for large groups especially if there children in the party - the spacious living room presented an excellent opportunity for the children to play and interact with only minimum supervision.

Also there's plenty of space so you wont feel like you are on top of each other or crowded.

Excellent place

Green Bank is situated in the famous yachting center of Cowes on the beautiful Isle of Wight. Being only a few minutes walk from the Cowes marinas and quaint pedestrianized high street with its pleasing variety of shops and coffee houses. Enjoy the vibe of Cowes & see the difference for yourself. The multitude of Island attractions offer everything you could want from the family attractions of Robin Hill, Blackgang Chine and Needles Pleasure Park to the historical & royal influence of nearby Osborne House (Queen Victoria's residential palace) and Carisbrooke Castle (prison to Charles 1st). The beautiful coastal and rural environment is all there to be discovered by foot, bike car or yacht! Green Bank is ideal for families as well as yacht racing teams (who have used Green Bank since 1988). Its also a great location for walkers being on the coastal path and cyclists being located on the Island cycle route. We are only a few minutes walk from both the Cowes Yacht Haven & other Cowes Marinas.

Other Activities: Isle of Wight Music Festival (Seaclose), IoW Walking Festival, IoW Cycling Randonnee, Osborne House Summer Jaz
