About the neighbourhood
Cowes offers a great choice of pubs - many offering tasty food - and restaurants, all within a few minutes' level walk of FortyTwo. The High Street, a couple of minutes stroll away, has yachtie shops, boutiques and crafty shops, as well as several quality food takeaways. If you do want to shop for food to cook, there is an M&S food hall and a Sainsbury's too. You can walk to the Esplanade, with a world of sailing to watch, and Cowes beach and green, while just a short drive away are Gurnard and Newtown. The Island offers stunning walks across the downs and there are many super family beaches, with traditional entertainments.
Getting around
FortyTwo is just five minutes' level walk from the Red Jet hi-speed Red Funnel passenger ferry from Southampton. The Red Funnel car ferry comes in just across the river (you can see it from the top bedroom) and is short hop by chain ferry. Or you can drive round, via Newport. The Wightlink car ferry (from Portsmouth) comes in about 30 minutes' drive away, at Fishbourne, near Ryde. There is a frequent bus service to Newport and the rest of the Island.
