About kate wilson
Hello I have lived on the Island for about 20 years now. Originally the plan had been to only stay a few years but there is something about the Island that grabs you and draws you in, which is why people return year after year to holiday here. I live near to The Ark so I am able to help with any problems or answer questions. I can also provide information about places to go as well as let you into a few local secrets about the best things to see and do. Whether you end up staying at The Ark or not, please make sure you visit The Island at some point. It is a very special and unique place and I'm sure you will fall for its charm.
Why kate wilson chose Gurnard
I have owned The Ark for 7 years. It was pretty much derelict and something of an eyesore in a beautiful, quaint place. Although The Ark had planning permission for a 2 storey house I felt strongly that I didn't want to ruin the character of the road and area. I decide to restore and modernise the existing building and although frustrating and difficult at times, we are really happy with the result. The positive comments from locals and passers-by have made it all worthwhile. Yes, The Ark has uneven floors, wonky walls and low ceilings in places. BUT it also has wonderful sea views, light and sunny rooms and quirky charm.
What makes this house unique
Gurnard is filled with 'Enid Blyton' charm and famous for its incredible sunsets which you can watch from The Ark's sofa. The locals are very friendly and welcoming and even when Gurnard becomes busy in the summer months, it never feels crowded or commercial. Although small, Gurnard has a convenience store, a wonderful seafront café, 2 food-serving pubs and The Little Gloster restaurant. It is a beautiful, pleasant walk into Cowes, the world famous sailing town, with its variety of independent shops and abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants (There is also a Sainsburys and large Co-Op). Within a 10 min drive is Newport, the Island's main town with its high st stores and within a 30mins drive are Yarmouth, Ryde, Shanklin and Ventnor - in fact the whole Island is within easy reach.
