We advise that the facilities are not suitable for younger children.  We welcome children 12 years and older.

The second bedroom is usually made-up as two single beds, but with 48 hours advance notice, we an have housekeeping make this into a King Bed.

Self Cater

We offer the Gate Cottage on a self-cater - self-provision accommodation only basis.  We provide Tea/Coffee, milk and sugar etc so you can have a cuppa on arrival!

There are three supermarkets (with attached wine shops) nearby in Cowes for provisions.

This is a real kitchen! (fully equipped - not a kitchenette) and typically has all the general condiments you'd expect if you were planning to cook.

Just move-in and relax....


Why not enjoy your breakfast on the cottage veranda overlooking the gardens!  If you don't fancy bringing your own, there are numerous cafe's in Cowes that offer breakfast selections- some overlooking the seaside. 

Please Note: The Glen Isla main dining-room is generally  reserved for B&B guests staying in our historic Anderson Heritage Suite and Glen Isla Classic Rooms.  

If you would like accommodations offering our continental-style breakfast in the dining room, we recommend you consider our deluxe Glen Isla Classic Rooms, or the historic Anderson Heritage Suite.  Our dining room breakfast is offered as a B&B tariff for these hosted accommodations on selected days.

Lunch & Dinner?

With a full kitchen, you could cook! On the other hand you could order-in from the take-away food stores in Cowes, or stroll down to the the seaside village of Cowes with shops and restaurants (a 20 minute walk)

Check with your hosts for advice on local restaurants.  The menus are available to peruse or make a reservation.
