Great position and views
We loved this house! When we booked it, we understood how close it is to both the car ferry and the Cowes chain ferry/floating bridge (just look on Google maps satellite view, it's between the two), so this was not a surprise and made it so exciting for all the family. We even spotted the house from the deck of the ferry and had parked (allocated space) and gone inside before our ferry had even finished unloading! The chain ferry docks literally a few metres from the back of the house, and whilst you can hear it, we didn't find it annoying and it certainly didn't keep up awake or wake us up, despite being right outside the main bedroom. The windows facing the chain ferry are double glazed, though some others aren't.
The bedrooms are downstairs and the lounge/dining/kitchen area is upstairs. It is well furnished and has basic supplies such as washing up liquid, tea and sugar. The bunkbeds squeaked with any movement, which annoyed my son and amused my daughter! The double bed did not squeak and was very comfortable.
Overall, we were very happy and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Nice, character cottage BUT...
The location is very convenient for the mainland ferry (particularly if on foot) and we did appreciate Digby allowing us to access the cottage earlier than the official check-in time. It is also very close to the chain ferry which does make it easy to get over to West Cowes. However, the chain ferry runs until gone midnight and starts up again around 5am and the noise was very disturbing in the master bedroom which is only single glazed. After 2 nights of disrupted sleep (even with ear plugs), we changed the sleeping arrangements so I could at least get some better sleep in the front bedroom (which was much quieter). My friend slept on the sofa bed in the lounge which was still noisy but he'll sleep through anything! Ironically, the week following our trip, I heard that the chain ferry had been taken out of use temporarily for what was described as noise issues so maybe it had been particularly troublesome at that time. I do feel that double glazing, particularly in the main bedroom would be beneficial though. It was just a shame that I didn't come back from the trip feeling rested, which was one of the main intentions.
Great base for exploring the Isle of Wight
Very nicely equipped apartment,clean and modern
Great but noisy floating bridge
The house was a great size for 5 of us, very clean and modern and in a great location for the ferry. Also, we were very happy the house had its own parking space. The only issue was the loud floating bridge at night, especially in the master bedroom. But overall we would definitely return (with ear plugs!)
Lovely cottage, good location
Lovely little cottage, perfect for a family of 4. Friendly neighbours.
