The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is one of the sunniest location in the UK and is often described as the British Isles in miniature because it has something for everyone - beaches, forests, hills, bustling towns, adventure and activities of all sorts.

Cowes

The famous town of Cowes has so much to offer visitors and holidaymakers.

For sailors or spectators, there's always yachts to watch sailing across the Solent, whatever the season or the weather! The best place for this is by the Royal Yacht Squadron and Cowes Seafront - just walk through the town centre, past the Redjet and head for the seafront. If you're lucky, you might witness the canons going off to signal the start of a race! Pick up an ice-cream or some fish and chips en route for the full sea-side experience...

You can walk all the way along the seafront to Gurnard, with its dinghy sailing club, smart beach huts, beachside cafe and children's playground complete with wooden pirate-ship. Just behind the beach huts is The Woodvale pub, great for enjoying a quiet drink whilst taking in one of Gurnard's legendary sunsets.

Take a cruise (/www.solentcruises.co.uk) or book a private RIB (http://www.c2ribs.co.uk/ Tel: 02380 010099/Mobile: 07956 339303) to explore the Solent, stopping for lunch or to paddle on a beach.

Or get a water taxi (07974 864627) up the Medina river and lunch at The Folly Inn, a great family-friendly pub with unrivalled waterside views and a garden to eat out in on sunny days.

You can hire bikes from Top Gear (01983 299056) in Cowes and ride along the old railway track from Arctic Road, all the way to Newport. The Bargeman's Rest makes a good stop here - cycle through the industrial estate and turn left down Hurstake Road and right onto Little London.

Cross the floating bridge by Bell Cottages and walk up York Avenue to reach Queen Victoria's favourite retreat, Osborne House, designed by her beloved Prince Albert and now looked after by English Heritage. The house is full of interesting historical artefacts and the gardens are superb - including a stunning walled garden and the royal children's own garden plots. There is a fabulous 120-seat restaurant, the Terrace Restaurant, in the former Victoria Hall and Orangery, overlooking the terraces and gardens, with views out to sea. You can book it for lunch (01983 200022) but you will have to either be an English Heritage member or buy a ticket to visit the gardens to go.

Outside East Cowes, in Whippingham, you can visit the very pretty and well-maintained St Mildred's Church, where the royal family used to worship. Here you can see Princess Beatrice's wedding dress and hear about the history of the chapel from enthusiastic and local volunteers.

Further afield, attractions include the Zoo, Dinosaur Museum, Carisbrooke Castle, world-famous Needles and Alum Bay, Ryde Ice Rink, Butterfly World, Seaview Wildlife Encounter, Robin Hill adventure park and Blackgang Chine.

The Island also boasts some of the best beaches on the South Coast - from great stretches of golden sand for the best sandcastles to sheltered coves with perfect pebbles for skimming or shell-collecting. A visitor's pack is kept at the cottage listing all our favourite beaches, family-friendly cafes and fine restaurants.

5/5

"A house of character"

A great week at 3 bell cottages.
The house is large and beautiful, clean, with everything you need, starting with the large kitchen and comfortable beds.
A short walk from High Street, the proximity to the Chain Ferry (a symbol of Cowes) gives that touch a bit 'romantic and original' that makes it different from all other
Don't worry, you'll hear just the noise of chains, together with that of the seagulls.
The owner is very friendly and helpful.
