The Isle of Wight region


It's official – we get more of it! The lack of pollution here also means that those rays aren't filtered by any city grot, so bump up the sun screen protection factor!


There are facilities on the Island for virtually every water sport going, (with the possible exclusion of giant banana riding) with Cowes being internationally renowned for sailing and powerboat racing (and also pretty good for shopping). Cowes Week takes place every year in August with the JP Morgan Round the Island Race ensuring thousands of boats right around every viewpoint on the island is in June.


Isle of Wight Zoo (TV's Tiger Isle); Donkey Sanctuary; Blackgang Chine; Dinosaur Isle; Amazon World; the Isle of Wight Steam Railway; Lobster Safari; Brading Roman Villa, the list goes on.


Osborne House – Queen Victoria's favourite home; Dimbola Lodge, Julia Margaret Cameron's house, now a photographic museum and gallery; Quay Arts – the Island's main cultural arts centre; Farringford – Tennyson's home; Carisbrooke Castle; Quarr Abbey are just some places on the Island where you can get your cultural fix.


The Isle of Wight has some 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways and 60 miles of breathtaking Heritage Coast. Almost half the Island is categorised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within that are many Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It's almost a crime not to make the most of it.


Music can be found all over the island – from pubs to great venues such as the Shanklin Theatre - the event calendar peaking in June for the Isle of Wight Festival and again in September for Bestival.

Ventnor plays host to the annual Isle of Arts Festival at Easter as well as the Ventnor Fringe Festival during carnival week in August. The Isle of Wight Walking Festival takes place in May whilst the Cycling Festival happens each September.


Shanklin has the longest safe, sandy beach on the Isle of Wight with all the 'bucket and spade' attractions you'd expect for a perfect seaside holiday for all the family. Because it's so long the western end of the beach is actually dog friendly throughout the year which is a great boon for those wanting to bring their 'best friends' on holiday with them.

The town itself offers a wide selection of shops, café's and pubs, including those under the thatched roofs of picturesque Shanklin Old Village where the cream teas never run out.

There's even a thatched pub on the beach, just below lovely Shanklin Chine where you can take a shady walk if the beach gets too hot.

"Excellent break at a lovely rental home."

Spent a lovely week at Acacia House in Shanklin.Idealy located close to beach,and shops but still in a quiet location.The house was very clean and tidy on arrival and had all the facilities required to cater for the 5 of us that stayed the week and more.Ample sleeping arrangements including cabin at bottom of the garden with bunk beds and sofas.All in all a very good week and would certainly consider renting again.

Bradley and his family were very considerate guests and would be very welcome to return to Acacia House for another holiday.

"Not quite"

Great to a point. Had everything we wanted. But you state that it is children of all ages friendly and ok for people of all mobilities. The stone steps in the back garden are so steep and high that my… More

The tone of this review was extremely uncalled for, especially following my response to your direct e mail:
'Really sorry if you misinterpreted my description.When I've come to choose the drop down options that Holiday Lettings offer I've chosen 'children friendly' (unfortunately they don't offer a 'baby friendly' option) & 'restricted mobility: yes suitable' ie, there is a downstairs bedroom & cloakroom. I have now changed this to the option which says 'please contact owner' so that any misunderstanding can be avoided in future.
Very many thanks for your input.
Your bond will be transferred after cleaner has been in on Wednesday'
I won't reiterate my cleaners report back as I don't think that Trip Adviser should be used as a platform for unpleasantness.

"Beautiful house and garden in Shanklin"

Four adults and a dog went on a adventure to the IOW despite the storm warnings!
We were very lucky with the weather and our choice of location. Booking the property for the weekend (three nights) was very easy and we weren't disappointed. The house is very well maintained and fully equipped with all mod-cons - dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player, WiFi and off street parking.
There were two large double bedrooms we used, one on the ground floor and one up the steep stairs. The bathroom was very well appointed and the shower was lovely and big.
Downstairs was a small sitting room and large breakfast/dinning room and loo which worked really well for us. The underfloor heating was a bonus! The garden was really nice and big with a good patio area and summer house to hide kids in! The dog loved it especially the cat flap as he kept looking for the cat!
There was a small supermarket just round the corner which was really handy. It was a five minute walk to the coast path to take the dog for a walk and a 10/15 minute walk to the town. We had a very pleasant stay here and would highly recommend the property.

Excellent house for the whole family, spacious kitchen/dining area, with great size garden for the dog. Had some lovely bbqs out on the decking.
Superbly clean. Will definitely return next year.
