    Things to Do
    Car advised
    How to get there
    Ferry company websites: www.redfunnel.co.uk and www.wightlink.co.uk

    Car Ferries run from either:
    - Southampton to East Cowes with Red Funnel - takes 55 minutes
    - Portsmouth to Fishbourne with Wightlink - takes 40 minutes
    - Lymington to Yarmouth with Wightlink - takes 35 minutes

    The quickest route to Cowes for foot passengers only is the Red Funnel Red Jet service which takes 25 minutes from Southampton to West Cowes. Princes Esplanade is a 5 minute taxi ride from the Red Jet.

    Cowes is divided into West and East by the river Medina. It is easy to cross over the river on the Chain Ferry known locally as the 'Floating Bridge' - you only pay for the vehicle. Or you can drive from East Cowes via Newport to West Cowes/Gurnard.

As a regular visitor to the island, we've stayed in many locations and i have to say this is by far the nicest. Even though we had mixed weather we could happliy sit for hours at a time in the upstairs lounge looking down the solent at the ever changing seascape. The house itself is perfectly equipped and very comfortable - with the extra bonus of a fantastic welcome hamper!

Would highly recommend. Do bring an eye-mask if you sleep in! no curtains in the upstairs bedroom / lounge - upside is falling asleep looking out onto the water.
