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.
The Cowes / West Cowes area
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. Wander through the marina to admire the beautiful yachts moored up and listening to the breeze in the rigging with a beer or coffee in your hand. Watch the excitement of racing starts from the Royal Squadron Yacht Club.
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, 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.
Above the 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 where you will find the magnificent Osborne House, former seaside holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Cowes is also well placed for the Isle of Wight Festival that's held at Newport, ten minutes drive away.

Finding Number One, on Union Road couldn't be easier, from the ferry to lounging in the spacious living room took us less than ten minutes.
The house – resembling a luxury liner – exceeded all our expectations. You arrive to a large, stunning duck egg blue fronted terraced property on an accessible yet peaceful location. It is well appointed, Union Road is only a few minutes walk from Cowes town centre, with its many restaurants of varied cuisines, takeaways and bars, The house is ideally located, within comfortable driving distance of all of the Isle of Wight's many attractions.
Upon opening the front door you are greeted by a welcoming scent of perfume from the fragrance sticks, strategically placed, around the house.
Such homely touches with great attention to detail are also evident in the bedrooms, spread over the top two floors. These include two sizeable en-suite bathrooms plus a spacious communal bathroom. There are a set of luxurious towels on every bed, with individualised soaps adding that extra special touch. The upstairs bathroom has a gorgeous free-standing bath, which we loved.
The house is ideal for large families or groups, with double and single beds throughout the property including cots for children.
There is a well equipped kitchen with a huge table for social meals. The garden would be a great place for al fresco dining that is secure making it ideal for sunbathing and is large enough to serve as children's play area. There are plenty of books, DVD's and toys for children to use during your stay.
The house has the wow factor. We were a family group of five adults who couldn't believe how lucky we were to be staying there. We regularly rent holiday properties and this is the best we have ever experienced. On most evenings we stayed in, as we felt very much at home.
This beautiful, high spec property deserves to be treated with care and respect. You would benefit from swotting up on the mysteries of cooking on the Aga.
We are planning further visits.
Number One, on Union Road is like a dream home that we found, very hard to leave…

A group of us recently spent a blissful weekend at Number One. Bedrooms are spacious and the beds extremely comfortable - everything is extremely high quality and felt like a home away from home (nice homely touches including a well equipped kitchen, book case and some toys for anyone with kids!). It has a large well maintained garden and lovely big kitchen-conservatory which is a real sun trap.
Well located and it is just a few minutes walk from the Red Jet terminal, and the sights of West Cowes. Highly recommended.
