The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year. It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain.

For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Islands towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.

St Helens

St Helens is a coastal village situated between the neighbouring villages of Bembridge and Seaview. The 'hub' of St Helens is the village green where local football and cricket matches are held. There is also a children's playground together with seating where views across Bembridge Harbour can be enjoyed.

The annual carnival, which is normally held during August, also takes place around the green. It can be said that the village green is truly the centre of village life. The local beach, known as The Duver, is a great place for the kids to play. From here, fantastic views across The Solent and of St Helens Fort can be enjoyed.

Bembridge Harbour is very picturesque and a walk across the causeway is a must. The local fishing boats also moor here and their catches of fresh fish and shellfish can be bought locally. After a hard day exploring the Island, why not partake in a quick pint from the village pub whilst watching a spot of cricket on the green...

"Great service from company & owners"

Great location, easy to get to, exactly as described, bright & light home from home, lovely garden, one small issue during the week was sorted within half a day and we left a few bits by mistake - the owners went out of their way to collect them & drop them into the company office to allow collection by friends who were also over on IOW. Excellent service. Husband found the mattress uncomfortable although all the other adults in the house slept well but all of us found the sofa not so great for lounging on despite its big size. Kids absolutely loved the bunk beds & nice touches - crayons & paper in the kids room, crime eggs for us as it was Easter, plus biscuits, milk, tea, coffee etc. would recommend both the company & the house

"Felt like home which was exactly what we wanted"

It was beautifully clean and there was plenty of room. The open plan living area was amazing and the atmosphere it created was second to none.
I would recommend this to any couple/ family wanting to stay in a nice quiet village but with a regular bus service to visit the island.
