The House

Our Story

North House is a Grade II listed townhouse located in the heart of Cowes Old Town.

The house has been sympathetically renovated throughout and retains many of the original features and period quality, including its attractive authentic fireplaces. We have 14 rooms, some with idyllic sea views. We offer a restaurant, private dining room, bar, library, garden and a outdoor, heated swimming pool.

The house is situated within the Conservation Area of the old town of Cowes, close to the high street and its busy array of shops, restaurants, marinas and its various yacht clubs. The high speed passenger ferry service to Southampton is less than a ten minute walk from the house, making the journey time from London only 2 hours.


The Bar

Whether you are in the mood for a relaxed evening with a cocktail or a jazz session on a Sunday evening, our bar at North House offers the perfect setting to relax and unwind.

We are open from 8.30am and offer a lovely range of Joe’s teas, our very own blend of Mozzo coffee, alongside a selection of cakes and pastries. We are particularly proud of our extensive and hand-picked wine list.



At breakfast help yourself to fresh fruit, granola, yoghurt, pastries, freshly pressed juices, cereals, boiled eggs, toast, locally smoked salmon, cheeses and charcuterie meats.

If you fancy a more leisurely morning, a range of breakfast options can be prepared and brought to your room.

We serve breakfast from 7am until 10am Monday to Friday and 8am until 11am Saturday and Sunday.




Libraries are always conducive to good thoughts - as is ours, but it’s also a lovely cosy room where guests can relax in front of our open fire, read a book or simply sit back with a glass of wine. Guests are also welcome to dine here in a relaxed setting whilst enjoying a game of scrabble.


Garden and Pool

Our gardens offer the perfect space to enjoy the sunshine, read a book with a cocktail or glass of wine or to enjoy an old fashioned game of croquet.

Our beautiful terrace is the perfect space to enjoy seafood and wine, bathed in sunshine until late evening, when we like to light our fire pit for guests to enjoy.

Guests are welcome to use our outdoor heated swimming pool from 1st March to 31 October.


Four Legged Friends

We love our four legged friends here at North House. Dogs are allowed in our doggy designated rooms, Bar, Library and by special request in The Restaurant.
