Why do you like living in Cowes

We have the beach, town and countryside all on our doorstep – you can’t ask for more!

Favourite Local Park

Cowes recreation ground has a great skate park and outdoor gym for the girls with a large field to run our Labrador Marley.

Favourite Local Club/ Class

Savannah is sport mad. She is a member of the IOW Athletics Club and Newport Girls Football Club and loves to attend junior parkrun on a Sunday morning. Madeline enjoys archery with the IOW Scouts and attending any Comic Con event that comes to the island. As a family we love to go to as many festivals on the island as we can.

Favourite Child- Friendly Restaurant

It has to be The Coast in Cowes. The girls love the delicious pizzas baked fresh in the pizza oven. They offer a great choice of seafood and meat dishes, desserts and wines.

Favourite Place on the Island

We love to go camping in our VW campervan ‘Woodie’. Our favourite place is Windmill Campersite at Froglands Farm. This small and friendly quirky campsite offers glamping and lots of fun.

Best Children’s Book

Tom Gates, David Walliams and The Hunger Games are a firm favourite within our house at the moment.  

Favourite beach

Too many choices! Gurnard for its amazing sunsets, The Duver for its warm and shallow waters for paddleboarding and Compton for its lovely large beach for walks with Marley in the winter.
