Superb stay at this beautiful Island property ideally situated at the heart of Cowes.

Winkle cottage was in a fantastic location in the middle of Cowes with everything in walking distance.
We had a brilliant holiday and would definitely recommend using Classic Cottages

Really lovely cottage which is much bigger than you think it's going to be from the outside. The cottage is on a nice quiet street, just a few minutes walk from the town centre (quite a steep hill coming back though!). The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are really comfy. Having a pint of milk and a packet of biscuits left for us when we arrived was very much appreciated too! Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

Cottage situated on very steep hill. Well equipped. Cowes has a magnificent bus service well so has most of the island. Good shops pubs and eating places.

Superb holiday cottage.

Really lovely little cottage in a fab location near the shops/centre of Cowes. Fantastically comfortable beds with good quality linen. Very clean. Beautifully equipped. We would stay again although not in winter as the lounge was very cold during our stay (at Easter when it was super sunny).
We paid for a weeks parking at Nothwood House (approx 90meters away) which was £34 for the week which enabled use to come and go as we pleased.
I would definitely stay again although worth noting that with the steps to the garden, different levels, distance to carpark and being on a hill it may be more challenging for those with hip / mobility issues!
An Expresso Martini at The Compass in Town helped us up the hill with no problems!

Excellent cottage - well kitted out and very central for restaurants / shops etc. Love to return in the not too distant future.
Mrs Eves October 2021
We all enjoyed our stay at Winkle Cottage. It’s a bit of a tardis; looks tiny from the outside but is actually pretty spacious once inside. Very tastefully decorated and nice quality linens. Kitchen is small but has everything you need. Great location in central Cowes. No parking outside but usually found a space around a 5 minute walk away. We visited Carisbrooke Castle and the Steam Railway - really enjoyed both.
Mrs Lucas October 2021

Mrs higgins June 2021
A lovely well modernised centrally placed cottage in Cowes with good amenities.Top of a hill, so not for the unfit, but buses run nearby to the shops.
Mrs Edney May 2021
A lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and comfortable in an excellent location with easy and affordable parking in the carpark just a couple of minutes walk up the road. We stayed 4 nights and wished it had been for longer.... in actual fact I would quite happily move in!
Mrs Cook October 2020
We had a lovely 4 night stay at sweet little Winkle Cottage. It is in a terrific location for Cowes, just a short stroll from the shops, restaurants and sea front. Simple but stylish decor and very adequate for our needs. We would definitely stay again if we come to Cowes. (N.B. Don';t forget your slippers as the wood floors look good but are a bit hard!)
