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.
