The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is one of the most idyllic yet exciting parts of Britain. A place that seems to exert an irresistible attraction that brings visitors back time after time.

Popular from Victorian times as a holiday resort, the Isle of Wight is known for its natural beauty and as home to the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes, a town that hosts a world famous annual regatta. Colloquially, it is known as "The Island" by its residents. It possesses a rich history including its own brief status as a vassal kingdom in the fifteenth century, home to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and Queen Victoria's much loved summer residence and final home Osborne House. Its maritime history encompasses boat building and sail making through to the manufacture of flying boats and the world's first hovercraft. It is home to the Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was one of the largest rock music events ever held, with estimates reaching 600,000 attendees, overtaking the record set at Woodstock a year earlier. The Isle of Wight Festival was revived in 2002 to critical acclaim, headliners in 2006 were Coldplay, Foo Fighters and The Prodigy. The island is also one of the richest fossil locations for dinosaurs in Europe.

In AD 686, it became the last part of the British Isles to convert to Christianity, almost a century after the rest of Great Britain.


Gurnard is on the Solent and is renowned for being one of the best sailing areas in the world. More information on local sailing can be found at the Gurnard Sailing Club and Cowes Week websites.

The Isle of Wight is renowned for its range and quality of cycling terrain. It has a network of quiet lanes and bridle ways and an ever increasing number of railway line to cycle path conversions.

There is a well signposted Round the Island road route which passes the front doors of both of our properties.

We are well equipped to cater for cyclists and their equipment and both of our properties have secure bicycle storage and water hoses in the rear gardens.

"VIP festival experience"

This is the only way to enjoy the best festival in the UK on the most beautiful island. The property is set in an idyllic setting and boasts amazing sunsets. The house has everything you need for a home from home experience. It's perfect.

"Fabulous Festival Stay!"

a warm and friendly welcome from the accomodation owners awaits as well as basic provisions and Isle of Wight fudge and organic juices!
Beautifully presented accommodation which is very clean and welcoming. Wi-fi is a welcome addition.
We had a fabulous stay and couldn't fault the accomodation - we will be back!

"Great accommodation, would highly recommend"

Had a lovely week at Seawinds in the October half term. The accommodation was perfect, my children loved their bedroom and my mother and I loved the open plan living area. Would thoroughly recommend… More

"Simply Amazing!"

Our trip in August 2013 was our second time staying at Seawinds and the second time we had our hearts stolen away by this stunning property situated in an idyllic corner of the Isle of Wight. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, the property is perfectly located just yards from the sea, great for crabbing and affording beautiful views over the Solent, especially the sunsets.

The owners, Carl and Michele, are very welcoming and helpful, from offering to arrange our ferries to providing a much appreciated welcome pack of wine, chocolate and local beer! On arrival and throughout our stays, they always went out of their way to ensure we were settled and had everything we needed.

Great property, lovely location, fabulous owners, perfect!

"Seawinds is a great base to see the Island and to come home to such comfort is a bonus!"

Carl and Michelle made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived at Seawinds, which was dead on 2pm (the time we were allowed in the property), everything was clean, and very much like a home from home with lovely little touches. The view from the front of the property is great as you get to watch all the local folks taking their boats out, and in the evenings the sunsets are gorgeous! Everyone in our experience was really friendly on the Island and we would definitely recommend the IOW to friends and most definitely Seawinds as a place to stay.

"Perfect seaside retreat"

We have just returned from a weekend stay in gorgeous Seawinds. Not only is the location perfect - a stones throw from the sea - the cottage has everything you need for a seaside holiday. Highly recommended!

"This is THE life...."

It was our first visit ti the IOW and Carl was very helpful with the booking process and offered to arrange the ferry tickets. We did not have any problems finding this place as we drive and had a sat nav. Michele came to say hello when we arrived and to make sure everything was ok. Being a family with young children, this house is perfect in size. It is very clean, comfortable and well equipped so all you need to bring is yourself.

The sunsets in Gurnard are very beautiful and there are lovely walks near the house, it is located away enough from the busy parts of IOW and a good house to come back to after a day out.

We have seen different places in IOW but we will still choose to stay here when we return.

"A fantastic nautical pied-à-terre"

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful short break in Isle of Wight as a present for her birthday. I had booked this with Carl a month before, including ferry tickets. The journey into IoW and then Seawinds was very easy and pretty quick, although good luck battling the olds getting off the ferry.

Soon on arrival at Seawinds, Carl met us to check if everything was okay; we assured him it was. This is a beautifully maintained clean and tidy accommodation half a minute away from the Solent. Inside there was everything needed for our stay, and one night my girlfriend cooked and we had a delicious and cozy night in. Also, we found the beds and furnishings very comfortable, and we would definitely stay again if/when coming back to IoW.

East Cowes is only a short drive away, where we went to Mojac's the best restaurant I've been to in years if not ever. IoW has great places to visit, but always come with a car. It was always a nice experience to arrive back at Seawinds after being out and about, especially when needing to warm up after being in the rain for most of the day.

The only problem I would say is that the bedroom blinds could be more effective, a small issue when you consider you can wake up to go on beautiful early pebbly beach walks, and possibly even walk to the beach cafe and have breakfast. A bonus with Seawinds are the lovely walks you can go on and take in some brisk fresh air with magnificent views.

I would strongly recommend this place to any couple or family. We felt we had made a great choice staying at Seawinds.

"Perfect house in an excellent location"

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Isle of Wight, and a big part of this was knowing that we had such a cosy and comfortable base to come back to each night. Seawinds had everything that we needed, and is well appointed and presented throughout.

We received excellent service, and Carl made sure that our booking, arrival and departure were all very straight-forward.

The views across the Solent are magnificent, and the restaurant just opposite the house is an excellent perk of the property's location. East Cowes is forty five pleasant minutes walk away, and heading there for a meal is a good way to spend an evening (although make sure you take a torch for the walk back!)
