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.
