About East Rosetta Cottage

On the seafront at Cowes, this beautiful 19th century house is full of original features.

Lounge over afternoon tea and watch the ships go by from the garden of this Victorian seafront house. You could even get the whole family together for a beach holiday as it adjoins five-bedroom, Rosetta Cottage. Inside, it has all the charm of a 19th-century house with wooden floors, traditional fireplaces and a roll-top bath. 

Walk to the nearby town and marina which comes to life in the summer with sailing boats bobbing on the waters. Or venture further along the island to Newton Nature Reserve – a quiet backwater with a busy Medieval past, now bursting with wildlife.

By staying in East Rosetta Cottage, you’ll be helping to conserve one third of the Isle of Wight’s coastline that the National Trust look after with your support.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
