Find cottages in Isle of WightVisit 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.

Marine Villa Ref: PJJO

Offering spectacular sea views over Sandown Bay towards Culver Cliff, this magnificent villa was built in 1929, as a gentlemen’s residence. Noted local architect, Ernest Smith, was commissioned to take full advantage of the cliff-top location and exceptionally sunny climate to produce one of the Isle of Wight’s premium properties. He designed a grand detached house with decadently proportioned rooms; all main living and bedrooms have large windows topped by stained glass detail, framing the vistas. Art Deco influences include an upstairs sun room with huge sliding picture windows to enjoy the breathtaking sunrises and scenery by day and bay illuminations by night. Huge stained glass windows bring out the oak-panelled hallway, magnificent staircase and galleried landing. The house has an impressive triple aspect drawing room and large oak-panelled dining-room with doors into the sun room and garden for al-fresco dining. The architecture, proportions and landscaped gardens with palms over the sea are reminiscent of an elegant Mediterranean villa.

Cliff-top walks begin from the garden gate; the tarmac cliff path enables people of all ages and abilities to take a stroll, five minutes to the sandy beaches. The cliff forms a backdrop to a long sandy Blue Flag award-winning beach that extends from Sandown to Shanklin. Swimming and watersports are supported by lifeguards in summer. For those who can tear themselves away from the beach, the area around Sandown Bay is renowned for its fossils, and ¼ mile away from the house lays Shanklin with its charming, historic village, thatched cottages, tea rooms, small shops, seafront train service and lift to the cliff path. For the more energetic, there are longer walks from home, through chines and parkland landslips, to Ventnor, for a well-deserved hearty meal at a renowned inn. There are over 500 miles of footpaths and cycle tracks on the island, half of which is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The island offers opportunities to explore geological sites, such as the Needles a short drive away, or Smuggler’s Cove closer to home. Shanklin Chine and Ventnor Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and provide a good chance of spotting the endangered red squirrel and Glanville Fritillary butterfly, unique to the island. Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle (English Heritage), Mottistone House (National Trust), Brading Roman Villa, Dinosaur Isle and the Steam Railway are but a few of the island’s attractions for all ages. Shops ¼ mile, pubs
½ mile.

The Acorns Ref: PGGL

Conveniently located in a quiet ‘no-through’ road, this detached holiday home offers the highest standards of furnishings and equipment. The rooms have been carefully co-ordinated and styled, and there are many additions such as a centrally operated stereo with speakers in all rooms, and a 6ft bed in the master bedroom. The enclosed lawned garden is a perfect place for enjoying a drink on a warm summer’s evening as the sun goes down. The Acorns is located on the edge of Wootton Bridge with walks to Woodside beach. There is a millpond at Wootton Creek; historically there was a mill which was used to grind flour. The creek is a haven for wildlife, as is the pond which is a Special Area of Conservation. Firestone Copse, adjacent to the pond, offers scenic walks and is Forestry Commission woodland – you may be lucky enough to see the famous red squirrels! Ryde, 10 minutes’ drive, has a long esplanade with plenty of attractions, six miles of sandy beach with children’s play area, ten pin bowling, indoor pool, ice rink, a high speed catamaran operating between Portsmouth and the pier head, pubs, restaurants, riding, golf, sailing, fishing and go-karting. The local steam railway offers a nostalgic ride into the nearby Smallbrook in Ryde. Explore the best of the shoreline along Heritage coastal paths or visit NT homes and gardens, Calbourne Water Mill, pottery, glass blowing, a donkey sanctuary, a zoo, Osborne House, the Needles, wildlife centres, tea rooms and craft shops. To the east of the island, discover quaint sailing villages such as Bembridge and Seaview, and within easy reach is Cowes. Newport has shops, eateries and waterside dining, and this leads to Carisbrooke, home of the historic castle. Visit picturesque villages such as Godshill, Old Shanklin and Brighstone, the Garlic Farm, Lavender Farm and vineyards. Theme parks include Robin Hill Adventure Park, Blackgang Chine or The Needles, wildlife such as the Flamingo Park, Sandown Tiger Zoo, owl and falconry and various farms to see the animals. Outdoor pursuits include walking, golf, riding and watersports. Shop and pub 500 yards.
