Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Just simply fantastic, great location very clean great place to stay. Wonderful views of the river. June 2012.
  2. fantastic location by the chain ferry - always something to watch going by on the river and the solent. Just hop onto the (free for foot passengers) chain ferry and you’re in Cowes where all the shops are. June 2012.
  3. This was the 3rd time we had stayed at Anchor Cottage. The view is wonderful - always something to watch on the Solent and the river Medina. Very convenient spot for touring the rest of the Island and the foot ferry most convenient for getting to Cowes and its restaurants. May 2012.
  4. Well placed for Cowes, comfortable and warm. April 2012.
  5. Anchor cottage is in a good location for the ferry, shops are local. Pleased to see there was car parking directly out front. Would recommend without hesitation and use again. Nice break, shame we had to cut it short due to grand-daughter becoming unwell. We will be back! Feb 2012.
  6. The location of this cottage is quite unique, being close to the East Cowes Ferry port, and next to the East Cowes chain Ferry. Whilst you can hear (slightly) the chain ferry into the night, it’s a great view from the lounge looking over the ferry chugging back and forth. We had a great time in the cottage and would recommend it to anybody looking for somewhere comfortable in the Isle of Wight. Dec 2011.
  7. I a word "cosy" we took the car ferry which dock less than 4 mins walk away from cottage. The chain ferry which runs till late and starts early make a bit of noise that would keep the lightest sleepers awake. I would return. Nov 2011.
  8. Excellently located property. Well equipped and spacious. Second bedroom a bit of a squeeze with the bunk beds so probably only suitable for younger teens and below. Would definitely go back. Aug 2011.
  9. Excellent accommodation if a little small. The property is comfortable and the kitchen extremely well fitted with everything you could possibly need. Location for visiting the rest of the island ideal. Excellent supermarket within a couple of minutes walk of the property. The closeness of the chain ferry does not disturb the peacefulness of the property. Aug 2011.
  10. A wonderfully cosy ’upside-down’ cottage affording fantastic views of boats entering and exiting the Medina, plus close-up views of the Chain-link ferry. Some find this noisy, but we have had no problems in any of our four stays here. Whatever the weather the Island offers plenty to do, but we have always found everyone (including young children) happy to stay in the cottage and enjoy the views and comings and goings on the water. A fantastic location for a relaxing holiday. May 2011.
  11. Our first visit to the Isle of Wight in over 40 years was a real treat, and Anchor Cottage is ideally situated for West Cowes (via the free chain ferry), for shops and restaurants. There is always something to see, be it the Red Funnel Ferry ’coming & going’, and everything from rowing boats to luxury yachts. June 2011.
  12. A pleasant location with very interesting views from both balconies of boat and ferry activities although the noise from the chain ferry was more than we expected but soon got used to. The property itself was light and airy with everything you could need. March 2011.
  13. Very comfortable and fantastic views and ’entertainment’ from the windows (Chain Ferry, Red Funnel Ferry and lots of other passing boats). Oct 2010.
  14. Close to ferry crossing, everything you need for self catering, eventhough we ate out every night, location was good for exploring I.O.W. Sep 2010.
  15. Lovely riverside views lots of interest with two ferries nearby. Sept 2010.
  16. The property is kept in top class condition, very clean, it has all the mod cons to make a holiday first class, just a shame about the ferry, still I bought some ear defenders and that shut it up. July 2010.
  17. Clean, cosy cottage. June 2010.
  18. Position and general appearance and atmosphere. Also went there last year and loved the location. July 2010.
  19. Fantastic location overlooking the harbor. We all loved watching the Chainferry and Red Funnel ferries and other boats going in and out. Lovely short walk into West Cowes using free (for pedestrians) chain ferry. Private courtyard location with parking. May 2010.
  20. Very convenient for both the car ferry from Southampton and the chain ferry to West Cowes. Anyone wishing to use public transport would find this ideal. May 2010.
