January events on the Isle of Wight

It’s a New Year and we’ve added a new collection of beautiful holiday cottages to our portfolio. More amazing options for your holiday this year. Head to the Isle of Wight this January for real escapism: once you’re on the ferry you can feel your worries melt away as you relax into your break. 

Visit the island in January to experience a vibrant diversity of winter landscapes. From forests to beaches to busy towns, the Isle of Wight offers a plethora of places to explore. If you’ve never visited the island before, we recommend heading for the Needles to experience the wild west of the Wight. Or look to the harbour villages of East Wight for some lovely dog friendly beaches and plenty of walks that take in the coastal views. On rainy days, make the most of the history of the isle with a trip to Brading’s Roman villa or Carisbrooke Castle near Newport. Explore the heritage of Queen Victoria by spending a day roaming the beautiful grounds of Osborne House to enjoy the crisp winter sunshine. 

If you’d much rather spend your days closer to your new home away from home, why not choose a holiday cottage with a fire? Snuggle up on the sofa with a hot mug of tea and a good book and spend an afternoon in another world. The ultimate relaxing afternoon. 

 

For those willing to venture out, we’ve picked some things to do during your stay on the island this January.
