About Andrew Milligan

Over the last 50 years I have enjoyed sailing so when the opportunity came to purchase a property on the Isle of Wight I chose Cowes, the traditional centre of yacht racing in the UK. Even in retirement much of my time is on the mainland. I support my partner's adult 'special needs' choir and act as a trustee for a local charity for those with learning difficulties. We are reaching the end of a three year programme of home improvements but I still find time for a little golf!

Andrew Milligan purchased this house in 2010

Why Andrew Milligan chose Cowes

The Isle of Wight has so much to offer. I love sailing but there are festivals galore, wonderful beaches, stunning walks and bike rides. If you enjoy eating then there is a wealth of quality restaurants, pubs and bars where you will find the best local produce. All this is just a ferry ride from the mainland.

What makes this house unique

The property is ten minutes walk from the Red Jet Terminal in the centre of Cowes and a very short chain ferry ride from the Red Funnel dock in East Cowes if you arrive by car. The property is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the town which makes it perfect for young children who need their sleep! Parking is always difficult in the old town but here it is free and available close by.

Very tidy, clean and well presented properly

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults (3 couples) taking part in the annual round the island race. The property was ideal for both the boatyard and town centre. Plenty of room, very large kitchen/diner .. we loved it ..

  • 4 of 5

We recently had a wonderful stay at this property. The house was perfect, clean and comfortable. With everything you could need.

we made good use of the garden as the weather was so nice.

Parking was easy usually outside the property and just a short walk into cowes.

Thank you and we hope to stay with you again.

Cracking place to stay. Fully equipped and very spacious. Clean, modern and tidy

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best holiday. The house is beautiful and so well equipped. Isle of Wight is the island that just keeps on giving. Fab weather. Loved Cowes. 50% of the time we could park outside the house if not it would only be a 2 minute walk. The beds are very comfortable and lovely to have a king, double and twins. Great to have a DVD player as the tv signal wasn't the strongest but it was great family time in the evening being busy on the island!!! Thanks Andrew.

Fantastic house with everything you need on holida

  • 5 of 5

Good sized well equip house. Very clean on arrival, beds very comfortable. The house has everything you need from TV/DVD/Wifi to the kitchen which has plenty of full cupboards. I like the idea there are things like dishwasher tablets, tin foil etc.. with the guidance replace what you use. Washer/dryer and dishwasher make holidays easy. 10 minutes walk from centre so ideal. Garden is a sun trap and nice & quiet. We had breakfast on the patio every morning in the warm Cowes sunshine. Owner very prompt replying to emails

Bright, light and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic, a real home from home. The house was spotless on arrival and the bed was wonderfully comfortable- we slept like logs!

Great location, a very short distance from the centre of town and the chain ferry. Quiet and peaceful at all times.

We cannot wait to return, thank you.

Osborne House is just across the Medina via the chain ferry and was the favoured residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
