We take the fuss out of the ferry by arranging it for you, so hop on board and be transported to this pretty isle with dramatic coastlines, beautiful forests, a wonderful history and of course, the best pick of holiday cottages. With its iconic Needles and white cliffs, the Isle of Wight is a world away from the mainland.
Small but mighty, this 23 by 13 mile island is a hidden gem of escapism in the United Kingdom. The size of the island makes it easy to get around once you’re here and the proximity to the mainland makes it even easier to get here in the first place. Around 3 hours from London, the Isle of Wight is the perfect weekend getaway if you’re looking for a relaxing short break.
Regardless of where your accommodation is, you’ll be able to explore with ease. In South Wight, take long walks along the promenade at Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor, explore the magic of Shanklin Chine and find some fresh fish to take home for dinner at Ventnor Haven. Stop at the pretty chocolate box village of Godshill for a classic cream tea and a look around the famous Godshill model village.
In West Wight, get on your walking boots for a stomp along the coastal path. Take in the dramatic views of Freshwater Bay, the iconic Needles and Totland Bay before stopping off for lunch at one of the traditional pubs en route.
The north of the island is a sailors paradise, with Cowes playing host to the annual Cowes Week in August, a festival popular with sailing fanatics. East Cowes was the former home of Queen Victoria who loved the area so much she built Osborne House, a great day out for all.
East Wight is home to gorgeous valley views and plenty of things to do. The majority of the population live in the east so you’ll find eateries, vineyards, Roman villas and more on this side of the island. A great place to use as a base for your holiday to the Isle of Wight.
We've plenty of options for your Isle of Wight holiday, and have an office on the island filled with knowledgeable local staff to help you find the perfect place. There are beautiful large properties for all the family in the popular village of Seaview. Find a couples bolthole on the sea front at Shanklin. Go for a traditional thatched cottage or a thoroughly modern family apartment, it’s up to you.
The island is particularly great for dogs: many of the beaches and restaurants are dog friendly year round and most importantly, plenty of our cottages welcome them too.
