Self-catering holiday accommodation in Ryde
Ryde is situated on the pretty East coast of the Isle of Wight between the sailing town of Cowes and the seaside resort of Seaview. Its long sandy beach makes it the ideal place for a fun-filled family holiday at any time of year, and it is also home to quiet gardens and a boating lake for those who want to spend some of their time off the sand.
The coastal path to Seaview and down to Bembridge is a great way to see the coast around Ryde and there are lots of holiday attractions in the area such as Butterfly World, a waterside pool and tree climbing as well as the beautiful Puckpool Park and Tearooms just along the coast at Seaview. For those with a sweet tooth, there is a fabulous chocolate apothecary on the Esplanade and for little ones, Monkey Haven is within easy reach at Newport.
Grown ups will also find something to do at one of the orchards or vineyards in the area and for adrenaline junkies, there is a karting track where you can practice your driving skills off road. Ryde is one of the main shopping destinations on the island along with Newport. Many brand leaders have a flagship store in town, there is a healthy number of independent stores, pubs and diners throughout the town too, as well as an old fashioned cinema.
