Cottages by the sea in Isle of Wight

Surrounded by the Solent and the Channel, the Isle of Wight has some wonderful sea views. Watch the sun rise and set over the ocean all from the comfort of your holiday cottage.

Make your dream seaside holiday a reality with a holiday cottage less than one mile from the sea. With everything from romantic couples’ boltholes to huge mansions for family and friends, the Isle of Wight is the perfect place to find a cottage to suit your break. 

Staying by the sea on the isle gives you a whole host of options when it comes to things to do. Walk along the promenades of Ventnor, Shanklin and Sandown or discover the yacht harbours of Cowes, East Cowes and Island Harbour. Staying in Brook puts you at the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a stone’s throw from plenty of coastal and inland walks. Not far from the needles you’ll find Freshwater Bay, supposedly one of the most stunning beaches on the island. 

Yarmouth is a lovely place on the west of the island, staying close to the ferry port from Lymington will save you time on the journey and get you in the holiday mood sooner. To the north of the isle, you’ll also find Gurnard to the west of Cowes, right by the coast – some lovely views of the Solent.

Choosing a cottage by the sea will give you every opportunity to get out on to the coast and make the most of your holiday. With plenty of dog friendly beaches and family friendly activities, the Isle of Wight is an ideal location for a family summer holiday or come for an off season short break and enjoy the island when things are a little quieter. For couples, there are plenty of wonderful romantic locations where you can hide away, relax and slow down. Come in November for some fantastic winter walks and gloriously colourful sunsets. Try and spot a red squirrel before they go into hibernation and explore the isle’s historical locations, like Osborne House or Carisbrooke Castle.
