About Rosetta CottageA converted Victorian house on the seafront at Cowes, with views of ships from the windows and garden.
If you’re looking for a holiday by the sea, then you can’t get much closer than this cottage. Rosetta is one of two holiday cottages in a converted Victorian manor right on the seafront at Cowes. The large, spacious property is perfect for groups and it makes the ideal base over Cowes Week.
Perfectly positioned for yachting enthusiasts, sit back and enjoy the view from the front windows as large ships and private yachts pass by. You’ll also love the private garden, which is ideal for outdoor games with its large lawn. Or just soak up more of those incredible sweeping sea views with an outdoor lunch or dinner.
Nearby, Newtown Nature reserve is a great place to enjoy the Island’s wildlife in a peaceful setting. See if you can spot any rare species from one of the reserve’s hides.
