The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break, at any time of the year. It is a stunning Island with unspoilt scenery and a wealth of fascinating attractions.
For the energetic, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, including windsurfing, sailing and paragliding. For a stress free, fun family holiday the Island is popular all year round. If it's an adventure holiday you are after then look no further. With over half the Island designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a network of footpaths that stretches over 500 miles it's easy to get close to nature. Alternatively, if you are looking for somewhere to be spoilt then indulge yourself in the Isle of Wight's fine restaurants, art galleries and historic houses.
There are many, many festivals, tourist destinations and events on the Island which are worth checking out via the official website of the Tourist Board.
Alum Bay is renowned for its coloured sand cliffs and pleasure park. There is a chairlift and steps to the pebbled beach below, from where, weather permitting, you can take a boat trip to view the Needles rocks.
Walking along the cliff footpath towards The Needles will bring you to The Old Battery, now a National Trust property, (members free), with a cafe, kids activities and plenty of fantastic views. Within walking distance you will also find a pitch and putt green, farmhouse cream teas and tasty home-cooked meals at The Highdown Inn.
Nearby Totland Bay has a delightful small beach with a short esplanade and privately owned pier and cafe. It is a pleasant 30-40 min walk to Totland Bay over Headon Warren. To the east of Totland Bay is Colwell Bay, a popular family beach of golden sand with beach huts and watersports.
In the opposite direction one can walk over Tennyson Downs to Freshwater, passing the historic home of Alfred Lord Tennyson, now Farringford Hotel. Nearby is the Island's only thatched church, St.Agnes, built on land donated by the Tennyson family in 1908.
There is a frequent bus service from the Pleasure Park in Alum Bay if you wish to explore the rest of the island and we would particularly recommend a visit to nearby Yarmouth, Fort Victoria and on to Newport.

"Fantastic location, but disappointed with cottage"
The location of this cottage is fantastic - it has a beautiful view of The Needles. Unfortunately the state of the cottage was really disappointing. The first impression as we walked through the door… More
We are very sorry the cottage was not cleaned to a good standard. We have addressed this with the cleaning company we use. They used additional help during a short period over the Summer period and have assured us this will not happen again and that the cottages will be presented in the normal high standard that we have offered for the last 3 years which has attracted numberous repeat bookings

"Great location shame about the cottage"
- there is no sea view from this cottage (#4) you need to stand outside the front of the cottage to see the sea.
- the cottage was not particularly clean (toe nails under the sofa, very dusty glass ornaments)
- the cottage was not well equipped for cooking (only small chopping board, only 2 pans (one v small), casserole dish only big enough for 2, no colander/sieve)
- the cottage had no cleaning equipment if you wanted to keep it clean during your stay (no brush, no vacuum etc)
- the cottage smelt damp and one of the sofas was so damp we had to put a waterproof backed rug on it to sit on it.
- the "garden" at the back has a patio the size of a table plus chairs and that's it. the rest is a steep overgrown bank with long grass and brambles.
- there is no curtain in the loft window in the upstairs bedroom
- no 3G coverage or Orange reception (and no wifi)
If staying with babies (crawlers/toddlers)
- the downstairs of the cottage is well thought out with furniture easy to "furniture surf"
- the high chair and cot were very clean and looked new
- the dining area is on a carpeted area something to bear in mind if your baby likes to throw food like ours.
- the curtain in the downstairs bedroom lets a lot of light in so you might want to bring a blackout if your baby has difficulty sleeping when its light.
- the upstairs bedroom isn't suitable for crawlers/toddlers as it's directly off the stairs.
- there are no stair gates
The cottage does have spectacular sea views, the communal grounds to the front where many enjoy the views are very well kept the grounds to the rear are more in keeping with the surrounding heathland,there is no WFI but this is described in the advert, there is carpet in the lounge but again this is also in the advert and there is a pull down blind for the upstairs window.we are very sorry the cottage was not cleaned to a good standard. we have addressed this with the cleaning company we use. They used additional help for a short period in the Summer and have assured us this will not happen again and that the cottages will be presented in the normal high standard that we have offered over the last 3 years which has attracted numberous repeat bookings
