A visit to the Isle of Wight starts with the adventure of getting over on the ferry! What a treat to leave Portsmouth, Southampton or Lymington and arrive on the Isle of Wight as quickly as half an hour later! This magical island takes you back in time - wherever you go on the Isle of Wight you will see evidence of its fascinating past, which stretches all the way back to the time of the dinosaurs.
With miles of beaches that surpass some of the finest on the mainland, the Isle of Wight is a wonderful place for a holiday any time of year. Visit medieval castles, Roman villas and historic houses and discover historic landmarks such as the medieval St Catherine’s Oratory “The Pepperpot” and the Megalithic Mottistone Longstone, as you explore the varied landscapes across the Island when you stay in a holiday cottage on the Isle of Wight. Looking for some adventure on your holiday? The Isle of Wight offers some of the most exciting outdoor and adventure sports in the UK with a backdrop of the most stunning countryside in the UK.
Why not paraglide over beaches and chalk cliffs where dinosaurs once roamed? Or race your friends across the golden sands in land yachts, or round a purpose built all-weather track in a 270cc go kart? The Isle of Wight is filled with a diverse range of outdoor and adventure activities that will entertain old and young alike! One of our cottages on the Isle of Wight will enable you to have adventures and relaxation, perfect for a great break in the UK in historic towns such as Cowes with its maritime history, to little villages such as Brighstone where you can explore the extensive network of bridleways and footpaths, climb rolling chalk downland and admire the fabulous panoramic views – enough to take your breath away!
