The Isle of Wight region

Just 2 hours from London by rail or road, with good motorway links to the Midlands, the ‘Garden Isle’ is easily accessible and well served by ferries, yet a relaxing ‘green’ destination for holidays and short breaks. At 23 miles long and 13 miles wide, the sea and spectacular Heritage coastline is never far.

An unrivalled network of footpaths gives access to unspoilt countryside – over is half designated as Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its mild climate makes it an ideal destination outside the summer months, when it enjoys a deserved reputation for family holidays.

Sites such as Brading Roman villa, Carisbrooke Castle, royal Osborne House, historic little Yarmouth and charming villages across the Island, offer glimpses of a favoured lifestyle through the ages.

Today the Isle of Wight offers relaxation and fine food in peaceful surroundings. There are outdoor opportunities for walkers, cyclists and water sport enthusiasts, - and award-winning music festivals. From the Downs which traverse the Island, views of farmland and villages, woodland and coast offer panoramas of the best of England in miniature.

Yarmouth, Isle of Wight

Yarmouth is located on the western side of the Island at the mouth of the Yar estuary. The historic little town has grown as a result of its natural harbour, guarded by Yarmouth Castle, built by Henry VIII in 1547 The harbour attracts international yachts and motor cruisers, whose crews take advantage of the moorings to enjoy the lively range of shops, and places to eat and drink in the town. Wightlink Ferries dock here from Lymington, after a crossing of just under half an hour.

The picturesque narrow streets and town square are lined by flower decked shops and pubs; restaurants range from Michelin star quality through family-friendly pubs to cafes with outside tables for celebrating fine weather late into the evening, many meals having an emphasis on local produce and freshly caught fish.

This is our second stay at Orchard Lee with our 3 children. They loved it as they can scoot right around the house on decking, the TV and iPads hardly got used. This is a great location with no light … More

"All 14 of us said we wanted to come back..."

Rented Orchard Lee and Tudor Lee for my sister's hen party, and really could not have asked for more. There was ample space for 10 in Orchard Lee and 4 in Tudor Lee. Both of them were very clean and tidy. One thing to mention was that as it was raining it was slightly muddy on the paths leading from Orchard to Tudor Lee.

The set up of Orchard Lee is fantastic for large groups with four separate bedrooms and one long room running the length of the cottage. We separated the areas into a dining room, a kitchen and a lounge with ease and it suited our purpose perfectly.

Tudor Lee is very cute and homely. It has a real old cottage feel, but with nice modern facilities (great shower and kitchen).

Jill and Steve genuinely could not have done more to have been hospitable and welcoming. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

All 14 said that we wanted to go back with friends/families.
