Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Perfect spot for people who like fishing - what better than to cast your line from the sea-wall at the property for an easy catch.
Kids can throw a crab line into the water too and have endless hours of fun (young children obviously need to be supervised doing this activity). One of our young visitors caught a sea-bass on a crab-line at the property.
The property is right on the waterfront and you can fish from the sea wall. The nearest sandy beach is Ryde, which is about a 15 minute drive. Gurnard Beach, which is a gravel beach with strong currents - great for surfing, is about a 15 minute walk and has a nice beach side cafe. Water taxis are also available within walking distance from the property.
The property is within walking distance of the Red Funnel Ferry Terminal in East Cowes (which comes in from Southampton). It is next to the chain ferry and is close to public transport to take you to most key places around the island.
The English Heritage site of Osborne House, which was Queen Victoria's residence, is about a 12 minute walk or short drive from the house. The Folly Inn is less than a five minute drive and is on the waterfront, serving wonderful food and has entertainment during the high season. Cowes High Street is five minutes away via the free floating bridge for foot passengers and has a myriad of shops, restaurants, pubs and harbour.
There is a local Waitrose Supermarket within short walking distance from the house and also a Co-op.
