The Isle of Wight region
Less than 5 miles from Hampshire, the Isle of Wight shimmers in the English Channel. Notorious for its unspoilt beauty, leading sailing port of Cowes and many outdoor activities, the Isle of Wight holiday is perfect for getting away from it all - at any time of year. Whether you enjoy sunny days on the beach, portside pursuits or family days out, Blue Chip Holidays' Isle of Wight holiday cottages will position you right where you need to be. The Isle of Wight was home to Queen Victoria and Lord Tennyson. Cowes holds the oldest regatta in the world, Cowes Week. Jimi Hendrix gave his last major performance on the Isle of Wight.
So you've all heard of Cowes Week - when the sailing world floats its way to the Isle of Wight's natural harbour for a packed programme of events, but have you explored the town behind the headlines? Cowes is a town with maritime history around every corner, and its famous harbour is backed by winding pedestrianised streets lined with chic independent shops.
Better yet, you'll be able to take to the water even if you don't roll up on your own yacht, as Cowes and East Cowes are connected by a nostalgic chain ferry that takes passengers across the River Medina. Cowes holiday cottages place guests amid style, activity and year-round events. Cowes and East Cowes sit on opposite sides of the River Medina. Osborne House in East Cowes was the seaside home of Queen Victoria. Cowes Castle is home to the Royal Yacht Squadron.
