Elegant townhouse hotel with wonderfully personal service and fabulous breakfasts – ten minutes from the fast ferry, and dogs are welcome

Here's an Isle of Wight hotel beautifully remodelled in chic cosmopolitan style, while keeping lovely old fireplaces and other period features intact. Three listed buildings – an 1820s built theatre and two Georgian townhouses – are combined with an impressive frontage on a quiet road. A couple of minutes away downhill is Cowes High Street, with shops, restaurants and a hubbub of boatie endeavours, at its most lively during race weeks. Bedrooms come in three sizes, all immaculately furnished with well-chosen bed linens and metro-tiled bathrooms; from some you can watch the water traffic passing on the Solent. Larger rooms have free-standing baths, perfect after blowy coastal walks or days out at island attractions. There's no hotel parking, but staff will advise – they aim to please with personalised service. Downstairs, there are stylish spaces to relax – the traditional library is perfect for reading or catching up with some work, the bar and 'Oyster Store' restaurant are also open to the public. Outside, take a dip in the small heated pool all year round, with deckchairs and a neat suntrap terrace for summer.

  • Beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages at the Island's Steam Railway provide a view of the Island's unspoilt countryside.
  • If you don’t think a day of sailing is for you, why not try a surfing day? Or Stand-up Paddle Board Yoga? The waters surrounding the Island are perfect for trying something new...
  • Explore 22 acres of sub-tropical gardens at Ventnor Botanical Gardens just 15 miles from North House. With its magnificent location on the Island's Channel coast, the unique sub-tropical micro-climate is a must see.
  • Those hoping to sample local tipples should head to the Isle of Wight distillery, based at Rosemary’s Vineyard in Ryde. The island’s only distillery, it produces the renowned Mermaids Gin alongside more leftfield creations like Apple Pie Moonshine.
  • Just down the road from North House is The Coast Bar & Dining Room, another restaurant with a classically coastal interior that specialises in sea-to-plate dining.
