Crews Nest is a beautiful house in a very useful and accessible street just off the main high street in Cowes. This is why we returned again! It is a very spacious 4 bed house with loads of room, beautifully finished and so close to Cowes High St with parking provided. We love the IoW it offers everything you need from a family holiday! We took our own car and travelled most days to different parts of the island, loving every minute. This year we took in Ventnor, IoW Steam Railway, Shanklin, Ryde Bus Tour and many other activities and places! We will deffo return to the Crews Nest thanks to Clive and Phillippa!
Crew's next is a wonderful place to stay. We were out and about everyday at the many
places of interest from the Amazon animal park to a ghost tour and The Needles.
Lots of things to do for all the family on land and at sea. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and ideally located in Cowes, within easy walking distance from the many shops. We arrived to a welcome pack and that was to set the standard for our full week on the island,we were welcomed everywhere we went by everybody we met. A beautiful island full of beautiful people and beautiful places to visit. I could not fault the Island or our choice of accommodation. Very good communication from both Clive and Philippa,nothing was to much trouble for them and their holiday rental
accommodation is absolutely first class. I cannot emphasize enough what a great time we had and how comfortable we were. You couldn't get a better place to stay.
Haven’t stayed in West Cowes before but this lovely property was literally a 5 min walk away from the high street which is well worth a look.
The house is really well equipped and beautifully furnished. We were 3 adults and 4 children (8 and under) and fitted in really well with plenty of room. We’ve stayed in lots of cottages over the years and this one was really one of the best. Highly recommend
Two families stayed for a week during October half term. The lay out suited two families well with plenty of room. The decor was very nice and homely, with everything you required for a holiday. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and we even managed a full roast one day. A bottle of wine and biscuits with a welcome card was greatly appreciated and with tea and coffee, herbs etc on hand also made the welcome all the better. The house is also so close to the restaurants and shops in Cowes.
Only slight niggle which is not the fault of the house is parking, we always got a spot but sometimes it took a few times round the block to find one a bit of a walk from the house - don't expect to park outside the door (although we did park on the double yellows to load and unload right outside) - that said it was a small price to pay to be so close to Cowes.
Would visit again and definitely stay here. Many thanks to Clive and Philippa
We had a wonderful family holiday at Crew's Nest - the house was ideal for us and catered for everything we needed. Highly recommend staying here - it's so close to the shops and although parking was sometimes busy we always managed to find a spot close by.
The house is beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and was perfect for us staying with 2 babies (plenty of room for the travel cots and highchairs!).
Would definitely come back!
Crew's Nest is perfectly situated only a two minute walk from the main hub of Cowes and the sea front. There were plenty of restaurants and shops which supplied us with everything we needed for our weeks stay. We spent everyday going out and visiting the island, including Osbourne House, Carisbroke Castle, Bembridge for horse-riding and St Helens for its beach and clear water. We surfed just about everyday at Compton Beach. Crew's Nest was the perfect place to base ourselves and with luxurious home comforts. The kitchen had every utensil going making it a joy to cook in. We were able to enjoy a BBQ out on the deck and got some stargazing in too. Crew's Nest was more than spacious but cosy and homely at the same time. Perfect holiday home.
So we had a brilliant week. Having been to IoW 4 times before Id always gone to Sundown or Shanklin, but West Cowes was great! The proximity of the house to the beautiful town full of restaurant, bars, coffee houses and nice shops was 1st class! We even found a reasonably priced Spa! The house itself was stunning, beautifully kept and spacious, perfect for eight people. We travelled to Ryde, Shanklin, Needles, east Cowes to Osborne House and even took in jousting at Carisbrook Castle. The parking was perfect thanks for vouchers! We all loved our holiday, the weather was great too. thanks to Clive and Philippa we feel very relaxed and had a wonderful family holiday! we will most definitely return!!
