Explore this dramatic island with an Isle of Wight cottage

The Isle of Wight holiday lettings have had a lot of visitors: after the dinosaurs, who walked over millions of years ago, notable figures have sailed across the Solent to relax, recuperate and generally have a good time. If the Isle of Wight’s scenery and starry skies don’t quite draw you in, take a look at the impressive list of famous writers, authors, and royals who have visited the retreat. Admittedly, Charles I, who was imprisoned in Carisbrooke Castle, may not have had such a whale of a time. But, in general, visitors have long been charmed by the island’s escape-like feel, its natural beauty, and attractions.

Getting There

Getting to the Isle of Wight

The island is between a 10-40 minute boat ride away: where you travel and how fast is up to you. Foot passengers can hovercraft across (Southsea to Ryde), ferry across with Wight link (Portsmouth-Ryde), Red Funnel (Southampton-West Cowed), or join the slightly longer car ferries. These leave with Wightlink (Portsmouth-Fishbourne) and the one-hour Red Funnel service (Southampton-East Cowes).

With a wide range of Isle of Wight holiday rentals available, you can choose to be in the towns, coastal areas, and remote countryside. Bearing this in mind, please ensure that you check the island’s Southern Vectis service information before booking your Isle of Wight holiday home. Although the island has extensive bus coverage, you may find it more convenient to reach your secluded retreat by car, which you can hire or bring along on the ferry.

Food & Drinks

Crab on chips: Dining on the Isle of Wight

Cooking in your Isle of Wight holiday rental is easy, whether you are barbecuing at a campsite or firing up the oven. Try local farm shops for supplies: Briddlesford Lodge for ‘Buttercup Milk’ and cheese, Farmer Jack’s for continental meats and pies, and Brownrigg’s Farm for hog roasts and pickles.

Stay on the beach (Ventnor Haven Fishery) or head inland (Seafood Corner) to sample crab on chips – seemingly the island’s unofficial dish – before you leave.

Art & Culture

Isle of Wight attractions: Dinosaurs to rockets

Wherever you stay, your Isle of Wight holiday home is sure to be near a piece of history either millions of years, or decades, old. Animals and people alike have left their mark across the island. In roughly chronological order, the dinosaurs came first, leaving us fossilised footprints at Hanover Point and fossilised remains along the western coast. To learn about them, get transported back in time at Dinosaur Isle at Sandown, or join one of the number of organised tours along the beach.

The Stone Agers - or, if you’d prefer, the Devil and St. Catherine - were responsible for The Longstone, followed by the Romans (Brading Roman Villa), and then by a medieval man who stole monks’ wine and built the ’Pepperpot’ as atonement. After Henry VIII built Yarmouth Castle, which offers picturesque views of the Solent, an unwilling Charles I stayed in Carisbrooke Castle, just outside Newport. Today, the partial ruins of the medieval castle offers wall walks, museum displays, and the rather interesting spectacle of watching donkeys draw water from a well.

Despite being just across the Solent in East Cowes, Queen Victoria’s family revelled in the privacy of Osbourne House, which combines beautiful interiors with insights into their family life. To blast back into the modern world, visit the Needles Old Battery and New Battery to learn about secret rockets and admire its sea views.

Local Attractions

Natural attractions: down on the beach and up in the sky

Beaches will be in easy reach of your Isle of Wight holiday rental, whether you are camped right on the coast or in a country farmhouse. The sandy beaches of Ventnor and Shanklin to the east are perhaps the most family-friendly, and the multi-coloured sand of Alum Bay at The Needles - Landmark Attraction is also a must. The park’s 4D cinema, Sand Shop, and water activities are sure to keep you occupied for some time: to reach Alum Bay take the stairs or chairlift, and take either a relaxing pleasure cruise or exhilarating high speed boat to see the Needles up close. For a higher vantage point, reach one of the three viewing points at The Needles Old Battery, or board the open top double-decker Needles Breezer bus.

Everywhere is walking country here, but the western coast is particularly scenic: brush up on Tennyson’s poems before embarking on the Tennyson Trail and head to Freshwater Bay.

Look out for red squirrels in Parkhurst Forest, walk with West Wight Alpacas, get up close with vultures (Appledurcombe House) and falcons (Haven Falconry), or ride a horse along the beach before heading back to your Isle of Wight holiday rental to relax.
