For those looking for rural views and peaceful seclusion there is a new selection of Rural and Country Cottages on the Isle of Wight. These country cottages are in beautiful rural locations and often have rural views or are located in quiet and secluded locations without passing traffic.
Country cottages are great for enjoying the Isle of Wight’s natural beauty and exploring the footpaths, cycle tracks and open countryside available across the Island.
Isle of Wight Country Cottages are available in locations in and around Brighstone, Freshwater, Godshill, Alverstone, Wootton, Shalfleet, Carisbrooke and many more attractive rural locations.

Sometimes the ideal holiday cottage is actually two adjoining holiday cottages so that larger families and groups can holiday together while having their own private spaces. We offer a lovely range of adjoining cottages or courtyard cottages which are next door to one another or are within a few meters.
Most adjoining cottages are located around a courtyard, farm yard or built in and around a manor house. This means that it is only a few steps to visit other members of your holiday party if you meet for dinner or prepare to go out.
Our adjoining self catering cottages are all over the Isle of Wight and can be viewed from our special adjoining cottages pages Adjoining Cottages Isle of Wight
Specific adjoining cottages pages such as Mead Cottages, Wackland Farm Cottages, Lower Yard Farm Cottages and Redway Manor Cottages all have cottages neighbouring each other and can be viewed from the Adjoining Cottages page.
