A charming, Victorian cottage in the centre of the old town of Cowes. A stone's throw from the Red Jet, the high street and all the pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and delis. Including two double bedrooms and a single bunk, a sunny walled courtyard garden with BBQ and a well-equipped kitchen. The cottage comes with a rare, free, private parking space for one car. Would suit families, couples or sailors.

The space
Durham Cottage is in a very pretty street less than a minutes walk from the high street of Cowes with everything you need right on your doorstep. There is a Sainsbury's, M & S Simply Food as well as a range of smaller independent stores including a butcher and a fish monger. The cottage is also within a few steps from the gorgeous North House boutique hotel with it's seafood restaurant and cosy bar (open to non residents). Our cottage is a perfectly situated for all that Cowes has to offer, with private parking for one car behind the property.

The house is a couple of minutes walk to the Parade which westbound, takes you on a wonderful stroll past the Cowes Royal Yacht Squadron along past the Green and into Gurnard (around 40 minutes flat walk) which has a great pub that overlooks the sea and a gorgeous beach cafe which serves amazing breakfasts.

The house itself is tastefully decorated and is very cosy with everything you need for your stay including a large modern upstairs bathroom. The main bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a double bed with a single bunk above. An Xbox, which has 3 controllers, is located in the converted loft room but is unsuitable for toddlers and the less mobile as the stairs are very steep.

There is a also the extra benefit of a modern toilet, sink and shower/wet room in the outhouse.

Guest access
The house is accessible from the front door or the garden door which leads out to the parking space behind the property.
