Winter Breaks on the Isle of Wight

The island has a warmer climate than the mainland making winters less harsh. Ventnor supposedly benefits from the most daylight hours and the mildest climate in the UK. Although we can’t promise a tropical winter, there’s a good chance that the sun may shine for your winter holiday on the Isle of Wight. For added cosy, choose a holiday cottage with a fire on the Isle of Wight and spend your evenings curled up with a hot chocolate or a mulled wine warming your toes.

 

We have 116 holiday cottages available on the Isle of Wight for you to enjoy some well-deserved time off.
