The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break, at any time of the year. Situated off the South Coast of England, the Island was made popular by Queen Victoria who had her maritime residence at Osbourne House - it's a stunning Island with unspoilt scenery and a wealth of fascinating attractions, beautiful coastline including many sandy beaches and The Needles, spectacular countryside and long sunshine hours.

For the energetic there are plenty of activities to enjoy, including walking, cycling and sailing. 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.

The Isle Of Wight is an ideal destination for visitors of all ages.

Cowes

East Cowes is where you will find the magnificent Osborne House, former seaside holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. And also where you'll find the only Waitrose store on the Island!

Cowes is just across the river and a chain ferry (for vehicles and pedestrians) runs regularly between East Cowes and Cowes. 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, the most famous being Cowes Week which is held annually at the beginning of August.

Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street of Cowes 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, local fish, meat, fruit & veg shops and bakeries, 2 supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs. The high speed passenger catamaran service to Southampton is centrally located at Fountain Quay. The vehicle ferry is based in East Cowes.

Above Cowes High Street and overlooking the Solent is Northwood House and Park. This classical style mansion was built in 1837 and given to the town in 1929, together with its 26 acres of grounds which now provide public tennis courts, bowling greens, putting green and a children's play area.

East Cowes is also well placed for the Isle of Wight Festival that's held at Newport, ten minutes drive away.

"Absolutely fabulous place with great views"

We rented Chain Ferry House as a group of 10 sailors taking part in the 2014 Commodores Cup and therefore we had a wide variety of requirements to fulfil. The house easily met and then exceeded all of… More
