Isle of Wight

Lying just off England''s South Coast, the Isle of Wight is a vibrant and exciting island with award-winning beaches and unspoilt and spectacular scenery that help make up its rich historical heritage.

For a small island, the Isle of Wight offers an incredible range of things to do. Whether you''re looking for attractions, activities and adventure or a quiet spot to relax and escape to, you''ll find our Isle of Wight holiday cottages the perfect base for you.

Why not start your island experience by exploring some of the Island''s natural heritage. One of the island''s most popular attractions, Needles Park is a great way to get a unique view of the world famous multi coloured cliffs, Needles Rock and Lighthouse. In the north of the island Osbourne House, Queen Victoria''s family home, is probably the island''s most visited attraction.

Historic churches and stunning architecture abound on every corner, from the only surviving windmill on the island, Bembridge Windmill which was built around 1700, to Carisbrooke Castle. The summer months bring internationally renowned music festivals and sporting events to the island along with a wide range of local festivals, agricultural shows and recognised town carnivals. Cowes Week welcomes the cream of the yachting world for seven days of racing that marks the highlight of the yachting year.

It’s warmer than average climate and varied landscape means the Isle of Wight is one of the UK''s best destinations for outdoor adventure. With its dramatic coastline and fierce tidal streams, the island plays host to the UK''s ultimate sailing destination. You''ll find lots of sailing schools and centres on the island and its coastline also provides superb conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

It may be a haven for extreme sports but if you don''t want an adrenalin fuelled break there are plenty more relaxing ways to while away your days. The diamond-shaped island''s coastal path is 67 miles long, and from it you can enjoy the natural wonders of both coast and countryside. Occupy your time with tennis, golf, walking or bird and nature watching. The West Wight remains rugged and unspoilt and is a firm favourite with fossil hunters searching for links with the island''s prehistoric past.

An island of contrasts, the Isle of Wight''s inland landscapes of rolling downs and lush vegetation are the perfect counterpart to the wind-beaten coast and golden beaches. Come and experience it for yourself. Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages on the Isle of Wight today.

    Lavender Cottage is situated on Sun Hill in the historic and charming Old Town area of Cowes. One of a row of three cottages, it is far enough away from the main street to be peaceful and quiet, yet is just yards away from the amenities that Cowes has to offer, such as a multitude of pubs, restaurants and shops, as well as yacht clubs and world class sailing facilities. The holiday cottage itself is believed to date from about 1780 and is built in traditional Georgian style, laid out over three floors. On the ground floor there is an open-plan living room and dining area, leading to a well appointed kitchen, complete with Aga. The first floor comprises two bedrooms, one double and one bunk, and a bathroom with a shower. There are views to the Solent and Cowes harbour from the windows. The top floor consists of a large double bedroom, again with views to the Solent and the harbour. Lavender Cottage benefits from a stylish, south-facing terraced garden, which is fully enclosed. There is also a shed for storing bikes.
    Cowes can date its colourful history back to at least the early 15th century, when Henry VIII founded castles there to defend against the French. The west fort in Cowes still survives to this day, albeit without the original Tudor towers, as Cowes Castle, now home to the world famous Royal Yacht Squadron. Cowes has long had royal connections, with much of the architecture of the Old Town dating from the Georgian and Victorian periods. Lavender Cottage is a lovely example, being right in the heart of the historic Old Town. During the reign of George IV, Cowes began its career as the ‘yachting capital’ of the world. 1826 was the year that the Royal Yacht Squadron organised a three day regatta for the first time. The king attended the following year and presented a cup, and the event is now known as Cowes Regatta. This excellent event attracts 1,000 boats and about 10,000 sailors, ranging from professional and olympic superstars to family boats and enthusiastic amateurs. A lively event with gigs, bands, the Red Arrows and much celebration. There are many other interesting events and festivities throughout the year, and plenty other attractions around the island to keep the whole family entertained. For the outdoor enthusiast, there are many beaches where swimming can be enjoyed, as well as golf, water sports, scenic walking, cycling or riding. Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, various NT homes and gardens, animal/wildlife centres and country/adventure parks all make good days out. Beach 500 yards. Shop and pub 200 yards, restaurant 300 yards.
