The high street is filled with independent shops, unlike most other high streets, and retains a great deal of charm, missing from most modern town centres. During the summer months, the town gets very vibrant with events and a throng of visitors, but in the winter months, it becomes much quieter harbour town, with plenty still to offer, including a promenade stretching from the end of the High Street all the way to nearby Gurnard. A great spot for a long walk or a cycle ride.
The apartment is filled with lots of interesting and bright pieces artwork and furniture, including some wonderful wall-art and large murals. The accommodation is ideal for couples, with one large bedroom with a 'Zip & Link' bed which can be made up as a super-king or as two single beds, bathroom, living area and fully equipped kitchen.

Included with the accommodation is use of two fold up bikes, which can be found under the stairs. The surrounding area is perfect for a bit of exploration on bikes, as it is mostly flat, with quiet roads and wide paved cycle routes stretching along the waterfront.
The Flat is a stones throw from the waterfront and passenger ferry to Southampton (RedJet). For anyone attending a sailing event, the Cowes Yacht Haven and events centre is only 100 metres away.
The accommodation is perfect anyone looking for a short or long break by the sea, with good transport links to the rest of the Island.
