The Commodore’s House was once lived in by Yacht designer Uffa Fox and is a unique venue combining fascinating history with outstanding harbour views. At one time it housed public baths and rumour has it that Napoleon III bathed here in the 1870’s. It was used by Hewitt’s the grocers as a warehouse for 200 years. In the last century, the J class yachts moored in Cowes Roads, were provisioned from here. It was purchased by Uffa Fox in 1948, who converted the warehouse into a combined home, office and boatyard. It's now available to rent as a party venue and has been host to Royalty on many occasions. There is no parking at the venue but there are several public car parks located nearby.
