Self-catering holiday accommodation on the Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight is the perfect holiday destination for visitors young and old, and you'll find our Isle of Wight holiday cottages in great locations across the island primed for exploring. Whether you like hiking across open countryside, building sandcastles on the beach at a traditionally English seaside resort, sailing your way around the island, lighthouse bagging, adventure playgrounds, or theme parks - the Isle of Wight offers all of these activities and so much more.
The west end of the Isle of Wight is where you will find the iconic natural structure - The Needles, which you can take a boat trip to for a close up view from Alum Bay, allowing you to marvel at the scale. The island is home to a high number of places of historical interest if you are looking for an informative fun day out like the Tennyson Trail, Brading Roman Villa, Carisbrooke Castle, the Isle of Wight Light Steam Railway, and the exceptional Osborne House - which was formerly home to Queen Victoria during her reign. There is a cycling and walking trail that circumnavigates the island, the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, and you can visit many of the above-mentioned sites and take part in activities all along its course. A hidden foodie destination, there is no shortage of places to visit from fine dining establishments to fresh seafood takeaways, making it perfect for self-catering holidays.
Holidaymakers travel here from far and wide for Cowes Week which is one of the UK's largest yacht and boat regattas. If you love music, be sure to coincide your visit when the Isle of Wight Festival is in full throng. A draw for some of the best bands in the world - its eclectic line-ups ensure there's something for everybody. The beautiful downs, flora and fauna ensure that nature lovers have lots to love too. Red squirrels and rare butterflies thrive here, and its a super place to cultivate tropical plants and trees because of the pocket of warm thermals that rise up from the sea in the south. Be sure to stop by Ventnor Botanical Gardens for some unusual species spotting.
