The Isle of Wight region
Cross the Solent to the Isle of Wight and you may feel as if you have stepped back in time! The Isle of Wight is one of the best kept secrets in the UK when it comes to areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Osborne House in East Cowes, is well worth a visit. It was the Summer Home of Queen Victoria for many years. The house and gardens are open to visitors during the summer months and there is usually an open air 'Last Night at the Proms' concert in the grounds sometime during July.
Alum Bay near Yarmouth is the home to the famous coloured sands. A chairlift operates from the Needles Pleasure Park down to the beach.
Ventnor on the south side of the Island enjoys a microclimate of its own. The Botanical Gardens have a variety of unusual plant life. The town itself is perched on a hill and there are several pubs and restaurants overlooking the sea where one can spend a pleasant day watching the world go by.
Blackgang Chine is a Pleasure Park built on the edge of a cliff on the south side of the Island. There are various fairground type rides, plus Wild West Land, Dinosaur Land, Haunted House and a variety of different attractions to keep the children entertained.
The Isle of Wight Lavender Farm is also worth a visit. The Old Dairy Tearoom has some interesting goodies to try out - lavender ice-cream and lavender scones and cakes! For a more traditional cream tea we suggest you try out one of the many old fashioned tearooms in Shanklin.
The Island offers the cyclist dedicated cycleways - many following the course of disused railway lines, signed routes, miles of bridleways and quiet country lanes as an alternative to busy main roads.
The Isle of Wight plays host to 8 golf clubs, from 9 to 18 holes. For fun and gentle activity, wander down to the Needles View Pitch and Putt, set on the slopes of Headon Warren, between the national Coastal Path and Alum Bay Chine. Here you can have a crack at the challenging nine-hole course, covering two acres, while enjoying stunning views of the Needles and superb coastal views across the Solent.
The Cowes / West Cowes area
Cowes has an abundance of restaurants, bars and interesting shops. There's a couple of small supermarkets in the town and if you need a relaxing treat there's a small spa close by.
Cowes has narrow streets and as well as many shops selling the latest sailing gear there are a number of local craft shops where you can usually find that unique present for the man or woman who has everything!
There are some lovely walks within close proximity. From Regatta Cottage you can follow the circular walk along the river path to Newport and back. There are a number of guide books at the house providing details of this and other walks on the Island.
There are many restaurants offering a variety of fare including Indian, Thai, the local catch of the day and good old fashioned fish and chips.
There is an abundance of pubs in Cowes. Allegedly, there are more pubs per square mile than in any other town in the UK! Many of the pubs do food and The Anchor often has live bands playing during the summer months.
Cowes is a splendid base for many of the Island's attractions, including walking, cycling, golf and cultural trips around some of the historic buildings.

Just had a great week in this cottage visiting extended family. House was spotless and had a lovely garden to relax in. The house was also well stocked with books, DVD's and board games. Location was great and a short walk to shops and very easy to get to the chain ferry over to East Cowes. Would recommend to anybody coming to the island and cannot recommend highly enough.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It is great to know that you enjoyed the house and all it has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back again.

One of the most comfortable holiday rentals we have had. Great for those who prefer eating in - a very well equipped kitchen. All the beds were very comfortable and the bedding and linen spotlessly clean. The garden was lovely and would be a great place to spend time in the warmer weather. The property is only a short walk from the town centre which has some lovely coffee shops/bars. It was also only around a 30 minute drive to most other parts of the island. A very enjoyable holiday.
Many thanks for your lovely review. We are really delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
