This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

East Rosetta sits to the side of this large Victorian house and is very peaceful with a simple, distinct charm. It is ideally located on the seafront at Cowes, with the beach in front, and within a short walk of shops and restaurants. It shares an entrance gate, path and garden with neighbouring Rosetta cottage. Relax and watch the ships and yachts passing accompanied by the sound of the waves crashing on the beach.

It's hard to believe this special place of rolling green countryside and white chalky coastland is only half an hour away from the English mainland; time spent here feels nothing like the frantic pace of daily life. And thanks to low light pollution, it's one of the best spots in the South to see the stars flash across the dark sky at night – so remember to pack a flask!

    Pleasant cottage

    The location with views over the Solent is superb. We stayed there two years ago and had a very enjoyable time. We often stay at Knowles Farm at Niton but at this time of the year it's pleasant to be within walking distance of central Cowes, its pubs, restaurants and shops. It's a pleasant cottage in a nice location - by sea.

    Good proximity to beach

    Our stay was made enjoyable due to its proximity to the beach, made it easy to fish and watch the ships in the Solent.

    Made enjoyable...

    I have always found National Trust properties to be furnished to a high standard and to be exceptionally well equipped. The welcome pack is always generous and a lovely touch.
