“Superb quality accomodation in a fantastic location”
Reviewed November 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a fantastic stay in this superb property. Extremely clean with great facilities all located a very short walk from the centre of Cowes. Stayed for a long weekend with friends, including an 18 month old. All requests were carried out and the whole weekend went smoothly. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I cannot fault this lovely house or the incredibly friendly and accommodating owner. Thank you.

“A lovely place to stay during the Cowes Week”

Our Sailing Team 'Bienne-Voile' had a great time at Northbrook during the Cowes Week 2015. Close to the habour and the bars of cause with a beautiful view from the upper floor to the Solent and habours of Cowes.

“Beautiful house with beautiful views!”
Reviewed April 30, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family and I stayed here over Easter weekend and it was perfect for our needs and a lovely family home.

In total there were 11 of us (8 adults/3 small children) and with a couple of travel cots the house was ideal for us to sleep comfortably in clean, well equipped bedrooms. The driveway was large enough for our 3 cars as well.

The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to cook breakfast and dinner easily for a large group with minimal fuss. The living room and dining room were also lovely spaces. Most importantly is the view from the top floor of the house - our only regret is not sitting up there and enjoying it more.

Location wise, the house is in the north of the Island and is a very short walk to the local town centre in Cowes, which has a small Sainsburys and some nice looking pubs (which we didn't get to try unfortunately). We ventured out in the cars most days to various attractions and everything was always just a short drive away.

The house has good WiFi internet and a Freeview TV as well.

Booking the house was very easy and Sue always responded to emails that I sent with various questions. Also retrieving the keys and getting in to the house is also a straightforward process.

All in all a lovely weekend on the IOW made better by the 'home' we could come back to everyday. Thanks!

“Beautiful house situated in the middle of everything!”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We came away for a family weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday. Northbrook exceeding our expectations. Wow what a beautiful house and much larger than the pictures. Everything was catered for and it felt like home. The house was so large that there was plenty of room for us all (7 adults and 2 children) the town was a 5 minute walk as was the beach. There was plenty of leaflets to provide us of what was around and we visited the zoo and dinosaur musiem. The communication with the owners was fantastic. I would highly recommend this place and would love to return.

“Great House in a lovely seaside town!”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Went for a cycling weekend with a group of friends to Isle of Wight. Cowes was a great base to start the Round the Island cycle. Northbrook is an 5 minute cycle from the chain ferry from East to West Cowes. So we didn't bother with cars, left them in Southampton and went on the bikes - worked out well.
This was a really nice house, spacious for 8 of us, well equipped, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated. Had a good area out the back to store the bikes with a good patio and garden area. Beds were really comfortable, good powerful showers and super, quick WIFI! It was a great location as you could walk to everywhere in Cowes. There is a lovely room at the top of the house where you can see across to the Mainland and see all the boats on the Solent.
Would highly recommend for a group of friends or a family. Would definitely recommend IOW for cycling as well - well sign posted and lovely quiet lanes. We also found excellent pubs and restaurants to eat in . So all in all a success!

“Lovely house, Great location”
Reviewed September 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We all had a great stay at Northbrook. 4 adults and 4 children in the same house and yet we didnt feel on top of one another. There is ample space to chill out and relax and the house is well equipped with all you will need for a relaxing break.
We would not hesitate to go back and stay again if we return to the Isle of wight.

“The Best of All Worlds”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We wanted somewhere that would work as a great base for exploring the island as well as being convenient to walk to local pubs and restaurants and being near the water. Northbrook fulfilled this in bucket loads! Anyone wanting to be in the heart of the sailing community on the Isle of Wight would be more than happy with this accommodation. It is only a 5 minute stroll down to the town centre which has pubs, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and great designer shops and boutiques. Just walk a little further where you come to some nice beaches. If you really didn't want to drive for a few days then this is perfect.
The house itself is beautifully decorated and has the feel of someone's home rather than a holiday let. The beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is brilliantly kitted out. The lounge and dining room are large and very comfortable. A 'crows nest' room has been added onto the top of the house giving a great view across the Solent, where we spent every evening with a glass of wine watching the boats go backwards and forwards!
The garden is perfect for sitting and eating, there is off road parking and the area is extremely quiet.
All in all a great place to stay, giving the best of all worlds.
