About Rosetta Cottage

A 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.

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.
