The Isle of Wight region

Separated from the mainland by a short, low carbon ferry trip,the island has lost none of its charm since it was discovered by the young Victoria in the mid nineteenth century to be a perfect holiday venue. Almost half is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and it has sixty miles of coastline with coastal paths which form some of its 500 plus official walks. The island attracts record levels of sunshine for the UK and has a variety of beach resorts to suit every taste.

On arrival after the relaxing scenic ferry ride, the visitor will be faced with the problem of which of the amazing range of activities to embark upon first. Over 1000 festivals are listed by the tourist board ranging from internationally renowned pop music festivals to village flower shows and regattas. As well as the obvious attraction of Cowes week at the beginning of August, there are many other sailing events throughout the year and the island is an ideal venue for the pursuit of water-sports, fishing, walking, cycling and riding. There are also castles, country houses and ancient historical sites to explore as well as animal sanctuaries, parks and museums designed to be of special interest to the children.

Bembridge

St Helen’s Duver (a sandy dune area of coastline) and the shoreline around the area are noted for their extraordinary variety of maritime plants and wildlife, and much of the coastline in the immediate vicinity is under the care of the national Trust. Nevertheless there are many child-friendly sandy beaches which are relatively quiet all the year round. The larger resorts of Ryde, Shanklin and Sandown are only a short drive or bus trip away.

The historic village green, one of the largest in existence, is bordered by picturesque cottages, and all village amenities including two restaurants, a selection of shops, a bus stop, children’s play area and the village pub.

A greater variety of shops and facilities are to be found in the nearby village of Bembridge. Bembridge is known for its harbour, said to be a haunt for pirates in bygone days, and is now an attractive venue for the sailing community.

Both villages are situated between the Downs and the sea so that the tourist can alternate between forays into the countryside and the coast.

"Such a lovely place to spend a week... or longer!"

My girlfriend and I spent a week here during Wimbledon week and were blown away by how lovely the apartment and St Helen's was. Everything about the place was better than we could have dreamed of - the kitchen had everything we needed, the living room was large enough for a family of 4, the bathroom was clean and functional and the bedroom had plenty of storage. We especially liked the large windows which you could open to get a lovely sea breeze in and the cutting edge TV which had connections for just about anything. There were board games, books and DVDs to provide entertainment if you run out of things to do on the island. The only downsides I would say is that the sofa bed is only as comfortable as a sofa bed can be so to spend a week on it is not advised. There is also a lack of wifi so prepare to spend a week disconnected from the world. Would definitely stay again though!

"Very comfortable - excellent location"

Drayton cottages is a brilliant location. It is situated just off the village green, a short walk to the beach and within walking distance from several restaurants and pubs. The apartment has all the amenities required including outdoor space for a barbecue.

"A homely, warm and clean villa"

My friends and I found the villas very clean and a very homely place to be. Offers a pleasant walk to the beach, getting caught up in the tide and socking wet was fun. Very well situated for travel around the Isle of Wright.

"Island Retreat"

From start to finish our stay at 'The Villas' was simply 'Great'. From the hassle free booking, straight forward instructions into the property & the welcome folder where very helpful. The holiday let was very clean, fresh and modern with the bedroom overlooking a quiet street. Plenty of extra linen & towels if required. It didn't matter that we couldn't park outside the peoperty, it was only a short walk to 'The green' & was a delightful added difference to the daily trips out. We were fortunate to have good weather and brought our bikes, which we were secured in the back yard overnight. The local area is beautiful and very easy to access on foot, with some very disirable cafes, pubs & restaurant on your doorstep. Leaflets can be found in the lounge of the holiday let. We would definetly stay here again.
