Our guide to Cowes holiday homes
Did you know...Cowes is home to the annual Cowes Week sailing regatta every August?
So you’ve all heard of Cowes Week - when the sailing world floats its way to the Isle of Wight’s natural harbour for a packed programme of events, but have you explored the town behind the headlines? Cowes is a town with maritime history around every corner, and its famous harbour is backed by winding pedestrianised streets lined with chic independent shops. Better yet, you’ll be able to take to the water even if you don’t roll up on your own yacht, as Cowes and East Cowes are connected by a nostalgic chain ferry that takes passengers across the River Medina.
