The Isle of Wight region
Famous for its superb beaches, dramatic coastlines and outstanding natural beauty, the Island is a holiday haven with something for everyone. From secluded coves and wide expanses of sandy beaches it’s not just the stunning landscapes that attract visitors to the Island, but the variety of things to see and do. Rich in a wide variety of sporting and leisure activities, visitors return year after year to enjoy another holiday. Self-catering is the most popular option because it is both cost effective and offers flexibility with the freedom to come and go as you please.
Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port with a natural harbour at the mouth of the Medina river. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, of which the best known is Cowes Week, held each year at the beginning of August.
Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs. The high speed passenger catamaran service to Southampton is centrally located at Fountain Quay, where you will also find the Tourist Information Centre.
Above the High Street and overlooking the Solent is Northwood House - a classical style mansion was built in 1837 and given to the town in 1929, together with its many acres of grounds, which now provide public tennis courts, bowling greens, putting green and a children's play area.
Just across the River Medina is East Cowes (a short chain ferry ride away) where you will find the magnificent Osborne House, former seaside holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and preserved much as it was when the Queen died here in 1901. Nearby is St. Mildred's Church at Whippingham, where the royal family worshipped. Both buildings were designed by the Prince Consort.
A short drive, or about 30 minutes walk, along the coast brings you into Gurnard where you'll find the Watersedge Cafe that's right on the seafront and a popular spot to pop in for a bite to eat during the day - or the Woodvale Pub or Little Gloster restaurant where, later in the day, you can have a drink or dine and watch the amazing sunsets that Gurnard's well known for.
Gurnard Bay and beach offer an older style promenade with privately owned wooden beach huts with a large grassy area to sit or play. There is a new fenced children's play ground with climbing poles, ropes and a large ship, all made in wood. The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle with rocks at low tide to try your hand at catching crabs. Gurnard Sailing Club is very popular with dinghy sailors and temporary membership is available. Race nights are Wednesday and weekends, with RYA training nights as well.
If it's something more active that you're looking for, there are plenty of opportunites on the Island for walking, cycling, golf, paragliding, surfing etc.

"Centrally located for all attractions"
Very well equipped house, comfortable and relaxing with a sea view from the bedroom. Good location within easy walking distance of Cowes and the chain ferry to East Cowes. Would certainly rent again.
