The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is a great place to visit. In some ways time has stood still, with Osbourne House, Carisbrooke Castle and many other timeless attractions. On the other hand, it's where the worlds yachtsmen and women come to compete against the very best, whilst pitting themselves against the complex tides and winds of the Solent (not forgetting to party hard and long afterwards!) for some of the top cups in the world.
However, the Isle Of Wight is not just about sailing. The chance to walk on high cliffs in both sun and storm toss'd sea before you, may make the visit worthwhile for you. The wealth of really good quality restaurants and convivial pubs may also make you feel at home. This is a destination for any time of year, be it a family break, or an oasis of peace. Wight Cottage can give you all of this.
Cowes is a wonderful town and has many moods. Cowes Week, Little Britain and the Red Funnel event at Easter are the headline events, though there are many other sailing regattas from March to September each year.
But Cowes is more than that. It is very much the live connection to the whole Island, a base from which the whole Island can be explored and enjoyed, from Ventnor and St Catherines Point, to Bembridge, to the Needles. The Island is a place of contrast. Enjoy it all from your central base in Cowes!
Cowes itself has a wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants, to suit every taste and budget. There are excellent food and hostelry outlets, from traditional pubs to Indian, Chinese, Italian, or even take a river taxi in the summer to the Folley Inn on the Medina River near Whippingham, for a great night out, for possibly the best steaks on the IOW!
