About Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for a holiday, as the island is a complete world within itself! There is so much to do and so much variety, suitable for all ages and tastes. Chilling out and watching the boats go by is a favourite pastime of many, enjoying the simpler pleasures in life like spending a day on one of the many beaches – building sandcastles, flying kites, fishing, surfing or just sitting in your deck chair and enjoying an ice cream is a must.

With over 200 miles of cycle routes cyclists love the island's scenic routes and little idyllic lanes, or coastal routes; such as the Military Road – affording visitors sensational views of the coastline. www.visitisleofwight.co.uk/things-to-do/cycling

Walkers can enjoy over 500 miles of well-maintained footpaths and the island is a dream for photographers and artists, with stunning subjects to capture around every corner, www.visitisleofwight.co.uk/things-to-do/walking

Nature lovers can enjoy the multitude of flora and fauna and marvel at the red squirrel, with the Isle of Wight being one of the last havens of safety for this endangered species. Budding archaeologists have an endless source of pleasure here, with the island revealing dinosaur bones and ancient artefacts on a regular basis, due to cliff erosion – so many treasures to be found. www.dinosaurisle.com

Of course, last but not least, it is a world stage for sailors, who come from all over the globe for Cowes Week, The Round the Island Yacht Race and many other sailing events too. Nearby Aisla Cottage is UKSA, so if you fancy teaching the kids to sail one summer or would like to do your Yachmaster Course then Aisla Cottage is be the perfect spot to stay. www.uksa.org

“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot." Queen Victoria

Osborne House, home to Prince Albert & Queen Victoria, now owned by English Heritage is less than 10 minutes from the cottage and is a must see for all visitors. "It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot," such were the words of Queen Victoria after her first visit to Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. www.english-heritage.org.uk

There is so much to see and do, but on a final note – you cannot leave without having had a meal at The Folly in Whippingham (less than a 10 minute drive from Aisla Cottage).. Legend has it that the name of the Folly originated from a French smuggling barge that ran aground in the 1700's selling illegal alcohol! Whether this is true or not, the Folly Inn has a unique, rustic appearance and remains one of the must-visit places for many thirsty yachtsmen who are prepared to venture up the River Medina. The food is fantastic, great quality and large portions, with fresh seafood regularly on the 'daily specials' menu. In the height of the season there is live music and dancing on the table is not unknown. Suitable for kids and dogs too and right on the waterfront.

Cowes

There is much to see and do in and around Cowes, obviously it is most famous for Cowes Week, where sailors come from all over the world to complete.
