Close to the famous sailing centre of Cowes, this lovely property offers stunning sea views and is perfect for relaxing on the terrace and watching the boats and cruise liners in the Solent.

This delightful property is attractively situated in a tranquil close which is just a short walk from the lovely quiet beach of Gurnard, where you can enjoy swimming, paddling and boating, as well as relaxing in the local pub and pleasant cafe. An easy stroll beside the sea will take you into the heart of the vibrant and popular sailing town of Cowes with its small shops and range of good restaurants. The sea at Egypt Point is just a stroll away, and Osborne House, the former island home of Queen Victoria is also nearby. Other delightful towns include Yarmouth and Ryde, or you could explore the estuary at Wootton, an important area for bird and wildlife.

On entering this lovely single-level cottage, which was renovated in 2006, you will find yourself in the spacious and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Tastefully furnished, with comfy seating, TV, DVD and radio/CD/iPod dock, the attractive lounge is an ideal space to relax in. Patio doors lead out onto the terrace. You will also find a delightful dining area, and the stylishly designed kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, and fridge. You will also have access to a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. Exploring this pretty holiday home further you will find a cosy twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room complete with power shower and WC.

Stepping outside you will find a large garden with an area of decking with garden furniture so you can enjoy a meal al fresco. From the terrace you can unwind while watching the sailing boats and sea craft. A copy of the movements of cruise liners is usually left in the cottage as the ships can offer an added interest as they travel across the Solent after leaving Southampton. There is off-road parking for one car available in the drive close to the property entrance.
