Access to the large covered outside/inside dining area with big table and seating for 12 plus a bar area (drinks not supplied), steps lead down to the enclosed garden with more seating and gate onto the pontoon, use of the pontoon and mooring is tidal. There is also a covered in seating area which can double up as a safe play area for children or a perfect drying area for wet sailing gear, a study area and off road parking. Although the house is large and suitable for large groups or generations of families it can also be a fantastic get away for a couple or smaller groups, discounts are offered for groups of 6 or less. The house is just minutes away from the charming town centre with its many and varied restaurants and bars, 5 minutes walk from the Red Jet high speed passenger service from the mainland and close to sailing clubs and the Marina.More

About the neighbourhood
Cowes where this fabulous house is located has easy mainland links either by Red Funnel car ferry or by Red jet fast passenger service both departing from Southampton. We have many restaurants and individual shops along side all the yacht clubs and the marinas, all open all year round. You can walk along the esplanade to Gurnard where you find a super sailing club a great beach and pubs and restaurants, some of the best the Island offers.
How to get there
There is a fast jet passenger service from Southampton that takes just 23 minutes and then a 5 minute walk to the house. You can also use the ferry from Portsmouth to Fishbourne or Lymington to Yarmouth it is just a short 20 minute drive to Cowes from both of these ports. There are 2 small grass strip airfields on the Island.
