Rates available on request.



Renting periods are from Sunday 3.00 PM to Sunday 11.00 am, unless otherwise agreed (ferry bookings are much easier on Sundays). Short break holidays are sometimes available, during the summer months within four weeks of the date, at two thirds of the price for the week.

We do not allow more than 8 people to stay in the property unless special approval is given. Pets are not accepted except by special approval, and on the basis that they are kept downstairs and off the furniture. This is particularly important as I have an allergy to animals. The rear garden hedges are not totally animal proof and dogs should not be allowed through the hedge.

Half the rent is payable on booking, the remainder 3 weeks before occupation. If you cancel eight weeks before the holiday, half the initial payment is refundable. If cancellation is made less than three weeks before the holiday, the full amount is payable. In each case you will be offered alternative dates with any necessary money adjustment taking account of prepayments and week of holiday.

Electricity and gas usage for hot water & central heating are included in the price. The telephone is available for incoming calls and FREE for outgoing UK landline calls only. There is a call box 100yds down the road. Duvets, duvet covers, pillows, blankets and tea towels are provided. You need to take all other bed linen and towels. (Special laundry terms for full linen and towels can be arranged.) Keys will be sent before the stay, giving instructions for their return).

The property is let on the basis that it is left clean and tidy. If you wish, it is possible to get the house cleaned during the stay, but weekend cleaning is of course more difficult.

Access to the Island by car is via one of three ferries. There are also faster passenger ferries from the first 2.

SOUTHAMPTON-EAST COWES BY RED FUNNEL (TEL 0844 844 9988) Red Funnel website )


Rates vary and it is advantageous to use their websites to book

Of these we use the Portsmouth ferry because of the frequent service, spacious passenger accommodation and the 35-50 min voyage. Note, travel by the Red Funnel Steamers car ferry leaves the car at East Cowes, with a floating bridge to West Cowes.
