About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Wight is an ideal place to visit any time of the year and you don't need a passport or line up at busy airport terminals. Journey time from London Waterloo to Cowes can be less than 2.5 hours! It is a fantastic Island with unspoilt scenery and tons of fascinating places to visit. For the energetic, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, including windsurfing, sailing and paragliding all of which you can do in Cowes. And for those who just want to relax and chill out then there are lots of fine restaurants, museums and art galleries around the island. Cowes is separated by the River Medina and linked by a chain ferry. East and West Cowes are the Isle of Wight's most northerly towns and are famed for their maritime heritage. Why not visit the Maritime Museum and Dockyard in E...
How to get there
Trains from around the UK into Southampton Central then dedicated bus outside of station to RedJet and Red Funnel terminal on Southampton Quay. The bus has an approx. 7mins transfer time and is a free service if you have Red Funnel or Red Jet tickets. Foot passengers: The least expensive crossing is from Southampton Quay to West Cowes, with the Red Jet passenger service. The ferry leaves every 30 minutes and takes less than that to arrive directly onto the Esplanade on Cowes High Street. The cottage is less than a 5 minute walk from the terminal. Car passengers: From Southampton Quay via Red Funnel to East Cowes then take the chain ferry which takes a few minutes across the River Medina straight into West Cowes.
