Cosy but perfectly formed flat in historic home next to Queen Victoria's Osborne
A one-bed first-floor apartment in a beautiful, historic Isle of Wight cottage is on the market, with Trigg and Co, for £179,950.
Described by the agent as 'charming', the flat sits inside Arthur Cottage, on York Avenue in East Cowes.
