This is a lovely comfortable cottage in a quiet lane. It's a bit on the small side but perfect for 2-3 people. Lots of lovely local walks down to Gurnard/Cowes and along the coastal path. The cottage was very clean and Clare, the housekeeper couldn't have been more helpful and the welcome basket was very welcome with scones and clotted cream as well as some wine. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, lovely shower and the log burner with its supply of logs was cosy on the cooler evenings. We would definitely recommend to family and friends as a great place to stay.

A lovely cottage situated situated in peaceful Gurnard, with a 20 minute walk along the Solent to Cowes.

We enjoyed our week at Starboard Side Cottage. It is well located a 5 minute walk to Gurnard beach and around 30 minute walk along the coast to Cowes. It has been very tastefully decorated and the kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfy and it was clean. BUT, be aware that it is VERY small! There are only three chairs in the sitting room (a small two seater sofa and and a small armchair) and there are no dining chairs around the small table in the kitchen so there is no where for four people to sit or eat. We walked to the beach where there are picnic benches which was fine in sunny weather but obviously not ideal!

Lovely little cottage in a beautiful village. We had a great time. Thanks for having us ??????

Starboard side is beautiful, set in a quiet location near Gurnard beach ? I loved the decor, you can tell the owner is an interior designer. I not only went home feeling relaxed, but also got some great ideas for my home. I had the best time in IOW. I'm a single Mum of a son who is 8 years old, it was a full on holiday, but I could relax here and I am hoping I can go back. Thank you for a lovely stay ?

A real gem of a cottage - I’d love to live there all the time!!

I would like to say a big thank you to the owner for such a wonderful stay. We truly embraced and appreciated all the little touches you so thoughtfully provided.
