What to do in the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is a popular holiday hot spot thanks to its warm climate, ever-changing coastline and wealth of things to do both on land and at sea. After a blissful night’s sleep in one of our characterful holiday cottages, begin your Island adventure by exploring historic villages such as Godshill, Shanklin and Arreton, or try your hand at water sports at Freshwater Bay or Ryde. For those interested in fossil hunting, we recommend the golden beaches of Compton Bay and Yaverland.

Possibly the Island’s most recognisable landmark is The Needles, a row of three distinctive chalk stacks which loom out of the sea near Alum Bay and can be reached via a memorable trek along the Tennyson Trail. If that’s not enough, you could visit St Catherine’s Lighthouse at Niton Undercliffe which is particularly romantic as the sun sets. With a wide range of attractions, you won’t be short of ideas during your Isle of Wight holiday.
