Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Cowes, England - Updated 2022

airbnb Cowes, Great Britain

While a visit to Cowes, Great Britain won’t necessarily bring you to a city of cows, it will bring you a beautiful seaport town on the Isle of Wight with more than just a black and white colour scheme. Cowes is on the bank of the River Medina and the East and West sides are connected by the Floating Bridge. The town has a rich history dating back to the reign of the Tudors, but today is best known for its flying boats, breathtaking scenery, and two-time Emmy winning (and Oscar-winning) actor Jeremy Irons. So if you’re planning a visit across the pond, then be sure to check out these Airbnb vacation rentals in Cowes for a magical time.

1. Magic Cottage - cosy wood cabin (from USD 108)

Speaking of magical times, a night in the magic cottage is sure to grant you that and so much more. This cottage is hidden away in Titchfield, giving you a private and relaxing stay in the countryside. The cabin is just about a 10-minute walk away from cafes, pubs, and coffee shops. And if you’re feeling extra adventurous you can drive a bit further to Gosport, Gunwharf Quays, or the Historical Naval Dockyard. With so much to do, you won’t even know where to start. This is a one bedroom, one bathroom cabin with additional amenities including a sun deck, kitchenette, lounge/dining room, and gas BBQ. The magic cottage can comfortably accommodate up to two guests.

10. A sailor's bunk ashore in Cowes

Looking for full immersion into Cowes life? Then you should definitely crash in this sailor’s bunk in a beautiful gorgeous Victorian house. The large room can fit either a double or twin bed (your choice) and you would have access to two bathrooms, living room with log-burner, a large kitchen and garden.

But if you do wrench yourself away from the cuddly puppy then you can stroll out to the town centre and peruse all the shops, restaurants, Sheperd’s Wharf, and sailing facilities Cowes has to offer.
