About Anne Jordan

We live in Bedfordshire which is about as far away from the sea as you can get, so we go down to the Isle of Wight as much as we can. All the places we own have fantastic sea views, it's so important to us to have the sea close by. We like our visitors to be able to share these fantastic views too.

Anne Jordan purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Anne Jordan chose East Cowes

The cottage is right on the waterfront. You can fish off the sea wall or just sit and relax on the balcony and watch the array of boats pass by.

There are a selection of shops within 2 minutes of the cottage which is very handy.

The Red Funnel ferry from Southampton is 2 minutes walk from the property.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has an upside-down layout, so takes full advantage of the sea views from the living area upstairs. It has a large wrap-around balcony with patio furniture where you can sit outside and relax..

stunning position

  • 4 of 5

Four and a half stars. Without doubt the standout feature of this house is the wonderful terrace overlooking the mouth of the River Medina - it's like watching a non-stop, moving tableau of constantly changing activities. Furthermore, the bright, comfortable, tastefully decorated lounge leads so naturally onto the terrace as a spacious integrated unit. The main bedroom was extremely comfortable with excellent storage space. We also made use of the outside communal space where we at times met and engaged in conversation with the very friendly neighbours. The wifi - so essential to silver surfers like my wife and me - was efficient and fast. Our only minor reservation concerns the appliances in the kitchen which, although of quality makes, are just starting to show their age.

Seymour Court is well situated in East Cowes, so close to the Red Funnel terminus, with an excellent Waitrose in close vicinity, the chain ferry for crossing over to West Cowes, and two bus routes to Newport and Ryde.

We were blessed with sunny weather which helped to make this a memorable holiday. We will return and can thoroughly recommend this lovely holiday home.

Regarding the kitchen appliances, we're hoping to refurbish the kitchen if we get time during the winter when we'll be replacing the current appliances too.

Wonderful location with an excellent harbor view. Well equipped for cooking.

  • 5 of 5

We were exceedingly happy with the balcony and view of the harbor. The apartment itself is very nice and nicely equipped. We were able to cook our meals in the well equpped kitchen. Not a large apartment, but the upstairs room is itself large and comfortable with an excellent view. One bedroom is very small, but is suitable for one person. The larger bedroom is just fine for two people. We were amazed to have enjoyed our visit to the island so much, and this property was part of the reason. Supermarket shopping easily available.

Best boat spotting location in Cowes, or probably UK.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic position at a narrow point on the Medina beside the chain ferry. Views across to West Cowes, up river and out to the Solent, surely the envy of any harbourmaster.

A huge volume of water traffic particularly at the weekend provides endless interest, with exceptional visibility from the upstairs living room and big balcony. We enjoyed sitting out on the comfortable cushioned chairs.

Convenient for ferries, supermarkets and eating out without needing to drive.

Car parking directly outside the front door.

This warm, well equipped upside down house was a real treat to stay in.

This property was just perfect for us. The location was amazing for everything we wanted. The views from the living room/balcony were ever changing. Walking to the supermarket was an easy 2 minutes journey as was the walk to the water bus. The property was clean and tidy and being only a 2 minute drive from the ferry terminal made it a perfect holiday destination.

Beautifully maintained and well equipped property in an ideal location. Close to Ferry Terminal with fantastic view over the harbour - the scenery literally changing constantly throughout the day - such a relaxing place to sit and unwind.

Easy access to rest of island with bus stop and Chain Ferry close by.

We have already booked next year's break! Would highly recommend staying here.

First time visiting the Isle of Wight. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Amazing views from the balcony with the scenery forever changing. Although the weather did not allow us to sit out on the balcony that much, the views from inside were just as spectacular. The property suited us very well it was warm and comfortable, all we needed. Would definitely stay there again. It was easy to reach from the Southampton Ferry. Can recommend 'The Lifeboat' for meals.
