Make an Isle of Wight cottage your home away from home

The Isle of Wight is a magnificent place to get away from it all. Somehow, despite the islands proximity to mainland Britain, the ferry crossing to the Isle of Wight makes it seem like you are many miles from home. There is a huge amount to see and do on an Isle of Wight holiday, especially around the coastline.

Things to do on holiday in the Isle of Wight

Being a small island, the Isle of Wight has a strong maritime atmosphere, and it is around the coastal regions that the vast majority of the islands towns, historical monuments, scenic spots and activities are based. The sailing heritage is well documented, with the largest regatta in Britain, Cowes Week, set to the backdrop of the world famous white Needles. The coastline is also perfect for surfing, kayaking, kite-surfing and jet skiing, so there are plenty to keep a water sports enthusiast happy from Isle of Wight cottages. Fishermen will also love a self catering Isle of Wight holiday home. There are boat charter companies around the 64 miles of coastline and freshwater reservoirs, lakes and ponds across the island, where you can catch trout or bass to cook in your self catering Isle of Wight accommodation.

The island has an amazing number of sporting opportunities for visitors to enjoy, from the usual activities of walking, cycling and horse riding to the slightly more bizarre (but magnificent fun) activities of llama treks and off-road driving. With 165 miles of bridle paths, 500 miles of footpaths and numerous mountain biking trails, the whole island is accessible from an Isle of Wight cottage. You can also see the island from the air. When you arrive in a self catering Isle of Wight holiday cottage, you can easily arrange to take a pleasure flight or go paragliding too.

There are also no less than eight golf courses on the island, meaning you can almost certainly get a round in during your Isle of Wight holiday. Accommodation anywhere on the island will be in close proximity to one of the windswept courses, either down by the coast or inland in lush parkland.

There are a huge number of attractions in the Isle of Wight, especially considering the size of the island. With two large music festivals, cottages on Isle of Wight are rarely empty. The bird sanctuaries, fun parks, Osborne House, medieval castles, roman villas and pre-historic dinosaur remains attract a huge number of visitors every year.

Places to holiday in the Isle of Wight

Newport is the capital of the Isle of Wight, and the commercial centre of the island. There are a number of fascinating historical sites ranging from Roman villas to a Saxon Fort. The tiny Apollo Theatre is a wonderfully atmospheric place to see a production, and there are limitless sporting options here too. The whole island is easily accessible from Isle of Wight holiday homes in Newport too.

Weather in Isle of Wight

The climate in the Isle of Wight is very similar to that of the south of England, although due to its unsheltered position in the Channel, weather conditions can be unpredictable at times.

Travel to the Isle of Wight

There are a range of transport options for reaching accommodation on the Isle of Wight. Red Funnel Ferries offer remarkably cheap car and passenger ferries from Southamptonto Cowes, and if you are planning on attending the Isle of Wight Festival, inclusive tickets are available from them. The ferry crossing to the Isle of Wight takes a maximum of an hour. You can also fly to the Isle of Wight on a private plane.

We felt relaxed and cosy spending our evenings by the wood burning stove in the comfortable sitting room. The Barn was clean and well equipped with pristine bedding and furnishings. We found it a good centre to explore the Island and in a rare moment of November sunshine we enjoyed walking along the nearby, easily accessible coast. We particularly enjoyed our visits to Quarr Abbey, Bembridge lifeboat, the Needles and morning coffee in Yarmouth! We would highly recommend the Barn and look forward to our next visit.

The communication from the owners was comprehensive and Graham, the property manager, provided a super meet and greet. The apartment itself is very nice indeed and just as pictured on the website. The views are fantastic and it is a only a short walk to the lovely old, winding streets of Cowes with its many restaurants, shops and pubs. My only (small) gripe would be that the extra single bed that had been placed in the main bedroom (presumably for a previous party of guests) did detract somewhat from the feeling of space and comfort in the room. My ten year old daughter was very comfortable in the second bedroom and she was most complimentary about the wardrobe and cupboard space! Altogether a lovely stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 47 Marinus. Thank you Grant, Ellen and Graham.
