The building is Grade II listed and its features include amazing high ceilings, arched sash windows and the beautiful and original stained glass windows. One in the living room and a second in the master bedroom .

A few short steps from the cottage and you can board the chain ferry to enjoy some time out in Cowes.

The cottage is also only a few moments from the Southampton Red Funnel ferry so a car is not essential.

3 Church Mews really does combine that home from home feeling, where you are surrounded by home comforts, in a beautiful historic building, whilst enjoying the benefits of a centrally located and well connected town. .

The cottage is the perfect place from which to base a touristic holiday .East Cowes and Cowes are both well connected to the rest of the island. Buses accessing the majority of the island can be boarded within a 2 min walk of the cottage and on Saturdays a passenger ferry leaves from Cowes for Portsmouth where you can visit the historic dockyards.

There is a quiet beach at East Cowes with stunning views over the Solent and a fantastic children's play area and paddling pool.

Within a 3 min drive there is Queen Victoria's favourite island residence, Osborne House.

We are more than happy for you to bring your dog(s) but please, a maximum of two.

The house has 1 alocated off road parking space and we respectfully request that you do not allow more than one car to be parked on the drive at any one time.

This is our first year letting the property so we would like to make your stay as memorable as possible, we are not just saying this as a sales pitch, we genuinely do. We will be on the end of the phone to answer any of your queries and we really look forward to your feed back.

Lovely welcoming property and well equipped.

My family and I had a great holiday at the Church Mews with super location for seeing Cowes and the Isle of Wight. The property is well decorated, comfortable and warm. We hope to return in 2017.

Lovely stay in a gorgeous cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with this lovely cottage. We were made to feel very welcome with the thoughtful touches (tea and coffee, and even stick of rock for the children!) Everything we could possibly need was provided.

Clean, cosy and we will definitely return!

Great Location, Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and we can honestly say we had a fantastic stay. The property was very clean, well presented and easy to find. The location was perfect, being close to the chain ferry with a quick 5 minute walk will take you to the heart of cowes which was great for restaurants bars and shops. I would highly recommend this property and I myself will be staying here again in the near future.

Fantastic trip away!

  • 5 of 5

Being from America, I had no idea what to expect from the Isle of Wight. I came here to experience Cowes week and this house was in the very best location! It's in a beautiful location within walking distance to everything you need! The house itself is absolutely adorable. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area
